It’s coming! Old Man Winter is on our doorstep! Before we prepare to “hibernate” for the upcoming months, consider how healthy your house is by having ductwork maintenance performed. The cold weather and increased heat use force your HVAC to work longer, faster, and harder. It is important to have your air ducts maintained in the winter to prevent health concerns, improve air quality, and to keep your home safe.
If your air ducts aren’t functioning correctly, there’s no need to panic. Believe it or not, it’s unlikely that you’ll need to replace your entire ductwork to fix the problem. Most ductwork should last around 30 years before problems arise.
Here are some of the benefits of getting ductwork maintenance in Toronto.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
We all know the importance of good air quality. Everyday indoor and outdoor contaminants flow in and out of our homes in forms of dust, pollen, chemicals, and bacteria. As these pollutants are recirculated through the house via the air ducts, the air quality becomes poor, and harmful, especially to those with respiratory conditions. The last thing you need is to be breathing in allergens floating throughout the ductwork in winter.
An HVAC technician can take a look at the vapour lining in your ducts—the layer that insulates your ductwork—to make sure that it’s in good condition.
Increased Energy Efficiency & Savings
These days, heating a home takes a big bite out of the monthly budget. Ductwork that isn’t designed efficiently can prevent the full force of heat from flowing throughout the house. This also makes the heating system work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. More energy equals higher bills, not to mention a harder impact on the environment.
Getting a professional ductwork maintenance company in to inspect your ductwork and make recommendations before the winter can help increase heat efficiency.
Extend the Life of Your HVAC System
Just as with any other household appliance, your entire HVAC system needs care and attention to keep working for many years. As mentioned above, most ductwork should last around 30 years.
Performing ductwork maintenance before the winter, such as diagnosing air flow issues, installing new ductwork where needed, and modifying the existing ductwork can ensure your heating system won’t have strain and stress on the parts. Installation of new ductwork
