Perhaps to you, a duct cleaning service seems unnecessary, or at least really minor when it comes to the performance of your HVAC systems. After all, does it even compare to a malfunctioning air conditioner or heater? Maybe it minor—but neglecting the need for duct cleaning can lead to HVAC performance issues.
It seems like your ventilation system is just a minor part of your overall HVAC system, right? They’re actually very important to your air conditioner and heater, as well as your home comfort and indoor air quality. To keep your HVAC systems working properly and keep your indoor air quality high, consider scheduling professional duct cleaning. Read on to learn the benefits!
Boost Your Energy Efficiency
The ductwork in your home tends to serve as a collecting place for things like dirt and dust since this ductwork isn’t cleaned nearly as often as visible surfaces in your home. At first, the only thing that suffers in your indoor air quality, making the air you breathe a little less healthy.
But as dust and dirt build up inside your ductwork, your air ducts become insulation. This is because the circulation of air is restricted, and as a result, your home comfort systems have to work harder to compensate. This will cost you more money from month-to-month on your heating or cooling bills and will make it harder for you to keep your home at a comfortable temperature level.
So, if you can’t remember the last time you had your ducts cleaned—or if you’ve never had them cleaned—you should definitely schedule services this year. You will help your HVAC systems run more efficiently, helping to keep you as comfortable as you deserve throughout the cooler months.
Duct Cleaning and Your Indoor Air Quality
Another major purpose of duct cleaning is to help improve your indoor air quality. In addition to dust, you can end up with pollen, dander, germs, mold spores, and all sort of other nasty things that can collect inside the ducts. The issue is that all these contaminants end up getting blown around your home every time you turn on your heating system or air conditioner. And breaking in these types of contaminants can cause a number of health concerns, like the flu, allergies, asthma attacks, and more.
Professional air duct cleaning helps keep your indoor air quality at a manageable level by effectively removing these contaminants from your home, so you can use your HVAC systems freely without worrying about the potential health complications that can come from it.
