Will a dirty air system result in higher energy costs?

Good question. Will a dirty air system result in higher energy costs? The answer is most definitely yes! How much higher depends on several factors including the amount of contamination and its location. More specifically, how many of the air handling components are badly effected by the dirt in the system? Many times it is all of them. How much money you can save on your energy bills by maintaining a clean HVAC system also depends on several things too, and there is really no cut-and-dry method to figure this out exactly.

Clean Air At Last

Just a few months ago one of our customers told us he was feeling very ill and stuffed up every time he spent any more than half an hour in his own home. We went in and cleaned his air ducts and installed a whole-house hepa filtration system. This customer also took our recommendation that he purchase a smaller room-sized portable hepa filter for the master bedroom and now according to this gentleman, everything especially his health has changed for the better. Much better. During subsequent follow-up calls, he stated that he was highly impressed with the duct cleaning we did. The technicians showed him all the dirt that was coming out of the ducts...Read More
