3 Heating and Cooling Service Tips for a Beautiful Home

by seizar kaelan on Mar 1, 2016

When it comes to keeping a beautiful home, many homeowners do not realize that some of the utilities they use every day may be contributing to dust, debris, and even the development of dangerous mold and mildew. A home’s heating and cooling system is a common culprit, especially if it is not properly serviced. If you find yourself fighting a daily housekeeping battle, there are three heating and cooling service tips that may keep your home cleaner longer.

Have Your Ducts Cleaned Professionally

When the cold weather arrives, you might sweep out your home’s vents and then turn on the furnace right away to save time. However, between the end of summer and the start of winter, heating and cooling ducts can collect a great deal of dust, pet dander, hair, and even the carcasses of small bugs. This causes all of the debris to settle on your furniture, floors, and creates dust bunnies in corners. Having your air ducts cleaned by a professional will avoid this, and when the furnace is turned on, instead of the smell of cooking dust and hair, all your family will experience is toasty air.

Have Your Ducts Inspected For Leaks

If you use air fresheners, candles, or spray to mask consistently musty odors in your home, the source may be more serious than you realize. In some cases, musty smells that get stronger when it is humid may mean that your air conditioning ducts are leaking where you cannot see and creating mold. When humidity levels rise or drop in the home, this allows mold spores to grow at a faster rate. Having your ducts checked for leaks by a professional heating and air conditioning service will confirm their presence so that proper action can be taken to fix them and remove the mold.

Find a Heating and Cooling Service That Specializes in Cleaning Vents and Ducts

You may believe that you can clean out your ducts properly every spring and fall with a broom or a vacuum cleaner, but there is no substitution for professional services. If you hire a heating and air conditioning service that specialize in cleaning your unit, it will eliminate dust and dirt so that it does not blow into your home when it is turned on. Some companies may even send more than one tech so that they can finish the cleaning job quickly and you can turn on your AC or furnace right away. Not only will this keep your home cleaner so that you spend less time dusting and vacuuming, your unit may also function more efficiently when it is clean.

Perform Spot Cleanings In Between Professional Services

There are several things you can do in order to keep your home looking its best between professional cleanings. First, check your vents weekly. If you see dust, hair, or cobwebs, use a wet cloth to wipe them away. This will ensure that the debris ends up on the cloth and not in the air, which will only result in a film of dust. If you use your AC, inspect the unit often for signs of condensation and leakage. No matter the season, maintaining your heating and cooling unit will go a long way toward keeping your home beautiful all year long.
