Spring is here, so hopefully you are planning on setting a day aside to clean your entire home. If you are planning such a spring cleaning day, then don’t forget about having your dryer vents cleaned as well. Cleaning your dryer vents will help keep your dryer working as efficiently as possible and will also keep it working safely. For the best possible job, you should pay for professional dryer vent cleaning in Atlanta instead of attempting to do it on your own. Here at Daffy Ducts, we not only provide expert dryer vent cleaning in Atlanta, we also provide HVAC duct cleaning.

When it comes to dryer duct cleaning, we will clean the connection between the dryer and the wall as well as clean the duct from the wall to outside. Dryer ducts can get clogged up with lint, especially if you rarely have your dryer ducts cleaned. This will end up restricting airflow, causing the dryer to have to work harder to dry your clothes. What inevitably happens is that it takes longer to dry your clothes and your dryer experiences more wear and tear than necessary. The lint that builds up is also a fire hazard and can be quite dangerous if it builds up too much since it can ignite when exposed to too much heat.

We also provide HVAC duct cleaning. This process involves cleaning your registers, cleaning all your register and supply ducts, cleaning the furnace air handler and plenum and using a sanitizing fog that kills fungus, mildew and bacteria. Cleaning your air ducts will help ensure that air flows throughout your home without obstruction, thereby keeping your HVAC system working efficiently. When your HVAC system is able to work as efficiently as possible, it means that it will have an easier time keeping your home at the temperature you desire, thereby increasing your comfort. A clean duct system also means that there will be less dust and bacteria going through your air, thereby improving your air quality.

This Earth Day, Make Sure Your Ducts Are Properly Sealed

Having your ducts properly sealed is essential to conserving energy and saving money. 

Earth Day is right around the corner, which means you should take stock of your home and see if there are any changes or improvements that you can make in order to make your home more environmentally friendly. For example, you should consider adding duct system insulation as well as make sure that your ducts are properly sealed.

Making sure that your air ducts are sealed properly is very important to the comfort and efficiency of your home. Your duct system is the lifeline of your home’s cooling and heating system. The ducts help to move cool and warm air throughout the home. When they aren’t sealed properly, air will leak out of the ducts. This results in a number of problems.

First of all, when warm air or cool air escapes from leaks in your duct system, your home won’t be warmed or cooled as well or as quickly, leading to a less comfortable home environment. Secondly, your heating system or air conditioning system will continue to pump out warm or cool air in order to make up for the air that was lost in an attempt to get your home at your desired temperature. This means that more energy is being used than necessary. The more energy you are using, the less environmentally friendly your home is. Not to mention that by using more energy, you’ll be paying higher heating and cooling bills. The issues don’t stop there – because your heating and cooling systems are working more than they should, they’ll experience more wear and tear, which could result in the need for more repairs than normal – or even worse, a shorter life span.

Although a professional service is recommended in order to ensure a high quality sealing job, you can do it on your own with the use of a mastic sealant or a metal tape. You should also consider having duct system insulation added to help keep warm and cool air from escaping your ducts as well. Doing so can have a big impact on saving energy and keeping your home as comfortable as possible.

Keeping your ducts clean is another great way to keep them efficient for Earth Day.  Contact us at Daffy Ducts for more information.

Enjoy Energy Savings With Clean Ducts

The air ducts aren’t something that too many homeowners concern themselves with. However, making sure that they are cleaned on a regular basis is important for a number of reasons. Not only does investing in air duct cleaning help to improve the air quality of your home, it also improves your home’s energy efficiency. Dirty air ducts not only make it more difficult for your HVAC system to heat or cool your home, which results in increased energy use (and as a direct result, increased energy costs), but they also cause unnecessary wear and tear to your HVAC system, thereby shortening its lifespan.

The main purpose of your air ducts is to disperse the warm or cool air that your HVAC system produces throughout your home. Because it is circulating air throughout your house, it’s also circulating all the things that are in your air, such as dust, dander, allergens and more. These things will cling through the interiors of your ducts and will build up over time. If you don’t have your air ducts cleaned regularly, then all of these contaminants will build up to the point where they obstruct efficient airflow.

You may be thinking, “well, isn’t that what my air filters are for?” Yes, your air filters help to trap some of the contaminants in the air, and by changing or cleaning your filters monthly, you can help to keep your duct system working efficiently. However, your ducts will still get dirty from normal use. Roughly 25 to 40 percent of the energy that is used for heating or cooling your home is wasted every year, according to data released by the U.S. Department of Energy. By simply having your air ducts cleaned on a regular basis, your HVAC system will use less energy to cool or heat your home – thereby also resulting in less wear and tear on the HVAC system itself.

Be sure to have a professional air duct cleaning service clean your dirty ducts to keep your HVAC system running as efficiently as possible and as long as possible.
