Air Duct Cleaning & HVAC System Efficiency
Your HVAC unit and air ducts deliver heated or cooled air keeping you comfortable in your home year-in and year-out.
The EPA specifically defines the dust and other particles in your home’s air as particulate matter, “a complex mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets.” In fact, the EPA also notes that, “Particle pollution is made up of a number of components, specifically acids (such as nitrates and sulfates), organic chemicals, metals, and soil or dust particles.”
While your HVAC filter is designed to trap this particulate matter and prevent it from entering your air ducts, nevertheless particles still get through. The amount of particles your HVAC filter traps also coincides with the quality of air in your home: the lower the quality of air, the more particles your filter will trap, consequently rendering your filter useless. If these particles are allowed to build up, your HVAC system can become less efficient, despite its age, having to operate longer to heat or cool your home.

Air duct cleaning from Sears, which focuses on the dirt in your air ducts, can also boost the efficiency of a dirty HVAC system, cleaning out the particulate matter that can eventually hinder HVAC effectiveness.
