The spring season is well on its way, which means it’s time to give your HVAC system a good spring cleaning. But it’s not just your ducts or coils that need cleaning. All of the fans located throughout your home — including your HVAC system — could also use some well-needed TLC.
It’s not unusual to see a ceiling fan, bathroom exhaust fan or even the blower fan inside your HVAC system covered in dust. Here are a couple of reasons why you should include your HVAC system’s fans in your cleaning spree.
Clean Fans Benefit Your HVAC System
A clean HVAC system is also one that runs at its most efficient. Not surprisingly, dust bunnies can be more of a hinderance than a help when it comes to your system’s performance. Dust-covered fan blades can have a disruptive effect on your HVAC system’s airflow. Although the effects are relatively minor, the results can add up in the form of increased energy consumption and higher utility bills.
Clean Fans Benefit Your Home
Dirty fans circulate more than just air throughout your home. Fan blades that are covered in dust and debris can spread a wide variety of allergens, pollutants and even mold spores through your living spaces. Anyone who is sensitive to these harmful particulates, including asthma sufferers, young children and the elderly, is bound to suffer respiratory issues due to the decrease in indoor air quality.
