The air ducts in your home have a very important job. They circulate the airflow from your heating and cooling equipment throughout your home to ensure it’s properly conditioned at all times. Many homeowners remember to have the filter changed regularly on their HVAC system to prevent dirty air from being circulated throughout their homes, but it’s equally important to have your air duct system cleaned too. During the cleaning, air ducts are swept out and all dust and debris are removed from the forced air and HVAC system.
If you’ve never had your ducts cleaned before, now may be a perfect time. There are many benefits to duct cleaning, including:
- Creating a cleaner living environment
Like everything in your home, dust can start to settle in your ductwork after just a few hours of non-movement. And when the system powers up, that dust begins to move. But it doesn’t just stay in the ductwork, it comes out and into your living environment, settling on your furniture, your bedding, your flooring. By removing the dust from within, you’ll make your home a cleaner place to live.
- Improving your air quality
How clean is the air you are breathing? Even if no one in your home suffers from allergies or respiratory conditions, cleaner air helps keep you healthier overall. Every time you breathe in dust and pollutants, they have the potential to trigger sneezing and coughing, as well as impact your sinuses or bronchial congestion. Cleaning your air ducts regularly ensures you’ll always have a clean air supply to breathe in.
- Reducing irritants in the air
Truth be told, it’s not just dust that lurks in your air ducts. Harmful contaminants and microorganisms live there too. Bacteria, pet dander if you have pets in the home, pollen, mildew, and other pollutants can all impact the air you breathe. If airflow vents aren’t cleaned out frequently, these contaminants can be emitted in your home and may cause significant illness.
- Removing smells and odors
A musty scent in your house may imply that dust, fungi, or mildew might be inhabiting the air ventilation systems. These odors can’t be removed just by using air fresheners. Having professionals clean your ducts will remove the smell if the smell originates in your HVAC system.
- Improving efficiency
When ductwork and registers have a heavy buildup of dust and grime, they may not operate as efficiently as possible. When the air supply is cut off in any capacity, it means your system has to work harder to accomplish the same outcome. A cleaner system is designed to operate as efficiently as possible, giving you a system that operates at peak efficiency and provides cost-effective performance year round.
