With fall already here and winter around the corner, it’s important to start preparing your home for the changing weather. There are many things you can do, including having your home cleaned, dust removed, and of course, getting your air ducts cleaned in anticipation of the switch from cooling to heating.
After extensive use in the summer, your ducts and vents are probably clogged with dust and debris, as well as dander that can impact the air quality in your home, as well as the performance and efficiency of your HVAC system.
So how do you prepare your air ducts for the incoming cold? Here are some key tips and tricks:
Have your vents and ducts professionally cleaned
This makes all the difference in the world as you prepare your HVAC system for heating purposes. Heat can also cause a lot of bacterial growth. With biological contaminants like mold and dirt, as well as bacteria that are trapped in your vents and filters, you might be dealing with a lot more health issues than you bargained for.
We offer complete air duct cleaning services in Wake Forest, and you can get in touch with us for our work. We will make sure there is no dirt or dust trapped in your vents, sanitizing and cleaning all the returns, cooling coils, fans, and heat exchanges to ensure no part of your system is left untouched.
Seeing as how our service is incredibly thorough, you don’t need to have it done more than once in 5-8 years!
Replace old filters with new ones
We recommend high-performance, high-quality filters such as the Merv that will ensure the air quality in your home remains consistent and healthy, preventing particles, contaminants, and allergens from entering your home and thus, affecting your health and well-being. You can also speak to our team regarding recommendations for filters, but it’s important to have them cleaned and replaced over time.
See if your thermostat is working okay—if not, replace it!
Your thermostat might requite a little fixing up too, especially if you’re using an old-school mercury thermostat. Upgrade to something digital and accurate, for the best results and easier calibration, better energy savings, and more cost-effective solutions to your HVAC needs.
Get a scheduled evaluation and check-up of your system
In addition to having us clean your system out, an added service you can choose to get is having your system evaluated by your regular HVAC contractor, who might be able to provide you with more tips and solutions to maximize energy and efficiency while cutting down on costs.
We also provide other services, including dust-removal services in Wake Forest. If you’re looking to have your home cleaned and for easier breathing and better health, get in touch with us!
