It’s already the middle of August, so summer has been in full swing for several weeks, but there’s still another six weeks of sunny season to go. In fact, here in the northwest, this is often the hottest time of the year so your air conditioning unit still has some work to do. The key to staying cool throughout the summer is to keep your HVAC system running smoothly.
One of the best ways to do this is to take care of your air ducts. After all, your air ducts carry all that cool air to the different rooms throughout your home, which means anything inside your ducts will be spread throughout your home. So what can you do to take care of those ducts? First, you can start by checking for leaks and seal any holes or cracks you find. This will keep more debris from getting in and keep the cool air inside where it belongs.
You can also replace any ducts if they are in really bad shape. After your air ducts are sealed it’s time to get them cleaned. This requires specialized equipment and an expert team of air duct cleaning technicians to get the job done right.
