May 03, 2023 in Blogs
Yes, regular AC servicing can definitely work toward reducing your DEWA bill. We all are aware of AC duct cleaning and how it can improve your health. But many of us aren’t aware of it’s benefits to our monthly utility bills. And, It’s true. Duct cleaning helps your HVAC work efficiently and helps air flow conveniently through the house, reducing the numbers in your DEWA bill.
What is Duct Cleaning?
Duct cleaning is basically cleaning all the dust, dirt and mold gathered in your AC duct, which spreads a musty smell all around your house and creates an unhealthy environment. Switching off won't make any difference until the dust and grime is cleared out. Duct cleaning might sound easy but it is a pretty difficult task to do it yourself even if you are able to procure the best equipment. Usually leaving it in the hands of professionals is the best way to deal with it especially for large spaces.
What Can You Expect from a Duct Cleaning Service?
Duct cleaning can remove the dust/dirt that accumulates in your AC every year, especially after winter due to the long time of non-use of the system in Dubai. As you can see in the above picture, that’s a lot of grime and mold that one actually cannot even see! This matter usually includes allergies such as dust mites, pollen, pet dander, hair, dead skin flakes, mildew and mold in powder form, toxins, chemicals, and other airborne items. So when you have your ducts cleaned out, all of these undesirable elements are also gone in one go.
While cleaning the ducts, the professional will clean all parts of your ductwork system, including the air registers, heat exchangers, grilles and diffusers, heating and cooling coils, drip pans, drains, fans (plus housing, motor) and, of course, the main unit air ducts themselves. It is a comprehensive cleaning service that eradicates dust accumulation throughout your system. The air duct cleaning will detect the areas where ducts may be improperly sealed or unsealed, which lets in more toxins, dust, and outdoor allergies to create a burden on your HVAC system.
Perks of Air Duct Cleaning
In order to cut the DEWA bill costs every month, you can look forward to a professional duct cleaning company or an Annual Maintenance Contract from a maintenance company. This will definitely allow for cleaner, healthier indoor air for you and your family once you begin having your air ducts cleaned regularly. Insulating and sealing ducts is advised to be done only once, but you can have your professional handyman from the technical services company make any spot repairs during your regular clean-ups even in AMC terms.

The cleaner ducts even lower your costs for allergy medicine and the fewer doctor visits as well as lesser or no respiratory emergencies due to circulating air.
Quieter and More Efficient HVAC System
When your HVAC system functions more efficiently and thus quietly, apart from the lower dewa costs because your unit will use less power to do the same job. But you will also enjoy a rapid, more responsive and quiet HVAC system that keeps your indoor temperature smooth, steady and peaceful.

When you have your air ducts cleaned and maintained regularly, professionals can check for any impending safety issues that may affect the safety of your home and increase your risk for fire.
While it is always good to schedule an air duct cleaning and maintenance check at least once annually, there are certain specific situations that may require an immediate air duct cleaning.
These situations include the following:
- If you have recently moved in
- If you have recently replaced any component of your HVAC system
- If you are facing constant pet allergy
- If you have had your carpets and upholstery professionally steam cleaned
