You know that a clean home feels more comfortable, looks better, and reduces allergy and asthma symptoms, but what about your energy bills? It turns out that keeping your Ocala, Florida, home clean can actually reduce your energy bills.
Dust accumulation can contribute heavily to increased energy bills. The dust doesn’t just settle on your nightstand, your grandmother’s antique sewing machine, and the tops of your kitchen cabinets. It also coats your HVAC vents and gets sucked into your HVAC system, often clogging your ducts. You’ll find more dust and debris in your air filter, too, which prevents proper airflow.
When dust spreads this way, your HVAC system has to use more energy to pump hot or cold air into your home. It’s trying to keep your home at the temperature you set on your thermostat, but it can’t do so if too much dust blocks free-flowing air.
Take time to dust, vacuum, and mop your home at least once a week. Pay attention to oft-neglected areas such as ceiling fans, light fixtures, and ventilation hoods.
Keep Your Appliances Clean
You shouldn’t try to clean your HVAC system yourself. The delicate components demand professional attention. However, you can clean your vents, stove, refrigerator, microwave, and other safe areas to keep dust and grime from building up.
Consider setting up a maintenance agreement with Senica. We’ll visit your home twice a year to clean your HVAC system thoroughly. A clean system promotes airflow, which reduces energy bills. We’ll also lubricate moving parts, check for refrigerant leaks, and test electrical connections.
A maintenance agreement saves you money on these visits and allows you to maintain a clean, comfortable home. We also offer several other benefits, such as discounts on parts, top priority for appointments, and more.
If you’re tired of high energy bills, start paying more attention to your home’s cleanliness. You’ll benefit from the reduced costs. To sign up for a maintenance agreement, call Senica Air Conditioning at 866-881-5935.
