Look Up!

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

This time I want you to check out your air vents.  These vents allow the air from your AC/Heating system to filter into a room. They are typically attached to your ceiling where the ductwork opening is located.

It’s important to periodically look up and see if  they and/or the ceiling around them is dirty. In this case, it’s both!

But after a simple wipe down of the ceiling and vent…..

All clean!

This is an important item to address because when buyers see dirt on and around your vents they get concerned about your AC/Heating system as well as the condition of your ductwork. This is one of those deep clean items I mention in my book that you should take care of before your home hits the market.

If you want to go a step further, get your ductwork professionally cleaned. Just don’t forget to tell the buyers.  It’s a great selling point!

Don’t Have Drafty Ducts

Next time you have your AC serviced, make sure they check your ducts too.

You don’t want to be cooling your attic or allowing anything other than air in them!
