Keep reading to find out about three signs that indicate this is an issue to consider. Then contact Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing at (661) 947-2653 for help.
- Your Utility Costs Keep Climbing
There are of course many different factors that determine how much your utility bills are. However, if you see that your utility bills are going up month after month, it may be that you have an air leak to deal with. If so, cleaning and sealing your air ducts is likely a good solution. If your ducts are not the cause Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing can look at your HVAC system to see if you need furnace cleaning, AC maintenance, or something else.
- Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality is Suboptimal
When you have an air leak, it is not just a situation that allows air to escape from the ducts – the leak can also allow pollutants into your airflow. This can allow all sorts of allergens, including dust, dirt, pollen, and bacteria, to be spread throughout the home. This can be a nightmare for anyone with allergies or who is prone to illnesses and is uncomfortable for everyone.
If you have noted that your home has more dust or dirt in it than is normal, or if those in your home are having more allergic reactions than usual, then it may be that a duct sealing is just what you need. At Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing we provide full indoor air quality improvements and can help if there are other issues contributing to the situation too.
- You Have Become Less Comfortable in Your Home
If you have found that your home is no longer as comfortable as it once was then it may be an issue of air ducts. For example, if you feel very warm or very cool in hone room of the house while other rooms are at the opposite of the spectrum, it could be an issue with uneven heat transfer. This makes it impossible for the thermostat to properly monitor the temperature. While you may notice that it is uncomfortable, what’s worse is that this also means your home is not as energy efficient as it should be.
If you believe that your air ducts are in need of cleaning and/or sealing, then it is time to contact Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing. We offer a wide range of services from plumbing to HVAC and beyond. All us now at (661) 947-2653 to request an appointment.
