August heat is here, and that means our air conditioning systems are working as hard as ever around the clock. If your air conditioning isn’t keeping your home particularly cool this summer, that doesn’t necessarily mean that expensive repairs are on the horizon. An air duct cleaning may be able to boost the efficiency of your air conditioning system and keep the home cooler as a result. Here are three signs it’s time to schedule an air duct cleaning with Clean Sweep!

Increased Energy Bills

If you’ve noticed a gradual increase in your energy bills, that could be an early sign that an air duct cleaning is needed. If you have stuck to the same routine throughout the summer and used similar thermostat settings, you should consider either a duct cleaning or routine HVAC service to prevent further cost increases or an untimely outage.

Unusual Noises

Noises can come from both your air ducts and your HVAC unit itself. If your exterior unit is making louder than usual humming noises, or making unusual noises after starting up or shutting down, you should be sure to contact an HVAC professional for service. If you hear popping, banging or clanging sounds from your HVAC ducts, that is likely a sign of debris in your air ducts. Clean Sweep can remove that debris and reduce wear on your HVAC system.

You Want to Improve Efficiency

HVAC unit efficiency is improving all the time. If your system is older and outdated, it will never be able to match the energy efficiency ratings of a brand-new system. However, you can give your unit a boost with a duct cleaning. After a thorough duct cleaning, you can be sure that debris and dust will be removed entirely, leaving no obstacles preventing the flow of cold air throughout your home.
