Keeping the air ducts in your home clean is fairly important. After all, those air ducts keep air circulating throughout your home, and bring air from both the heating and cooling systems for consistent interior comfort all year round. Since the air in your home circulates through the ducts multiple times a day, and is the air that you and your family breathe on a regular basis, you’ll certainly want that air to be as clean as possible. We’re here to explain the benefits of regular, professional duct cleanings, and how your home will benefit from them.
1.) Reduces Allergens and Irritants
Aside from dust, there are frequently other harmful contaminants and organisms that take up residence in your air ducts. These range anywhere from pet dander, pollen, mold spores, mildew, or other toxins. If you or any of your family members suffer from respiratory issues such as asthma or allergies, you’ll definitely want to look into having professionals clear all the micro junk out of your air ducts. By doing so you’ll make your home a much healthier environment, and breathe easy knowing your ducts aren’t repeatedly circulating dirty air.
2.) Gets Rid of Smells and Odors
All sorts of things can contribute to a stale smelling home, including food preparation, household cleaning products, mold, tobacco use, etc. As air flows through your ducts, those smells are consistently distributed around your home. If it’s been years since you’ve had your ducts professionally cleaned, there is a chance the build-up of dust and dirt are the reason for the musty scent emitting from your air ducts. All the odor trapping particles are cleared out when you opt for a professional cleaning, which results in a much better smelling home.
3.) Improved Air Flow
Ducts with heavy build-up of dust and grime can restrict the flow of air coming from the air conditioner or furnace. This decreases efficiency because your system must then work harder to either heat or cool your home. After getting your air ducts professionally cleaned, your system will be operating a peak efficiency. You’ll likely see a decrease in your monthly heating or cooling bill too!
As the season slowly begins to change, you should consider scheduling an air duct cleaning, especially if you’re a bit fuzzy on when the last one was. We suggest getting your ducts cleaned at least every two years, so try and use this as a base for yourself going forward.
