Many homeowners don’t think much about their ducts. Because it is out of sight, it’s often out of mind – until it starts to cause problems. However, in order to improve your indoor air quality and support your HVAC system, a duct cleaning is important. Here are four reasons why.
Especially if you have someone in your home with allergies or asthma, a duct cleaning will help prevent health issues. Over time, dust and other air pollutants accumulate in your duct system and end up in the air you breathe. To avoid issues with asthma, allergies, and other respiratory conditions, schedule a duct cleaning every 3-5 years or so.
Duct cleaning and your unit’s efficiency go hand in hand. When your ducts get clogged with dust, mold, allergens and pet dander, it restricts your HVAC system’s airflow – and in turn, makes it so it can’t do it’s job. After you clean your air ducts, your unit is able to run efficiently and distribute clean, fresh air throughout your house.
Not only does duct cleaning help improve your HVAC unit’s overall performance, but it can also increase the lifespan of your unit. If you’re a homeowner, then you understand how big of an investment an HVAC unit is. It’s no question that you want it to last as long as it possibly can. According to statistics, 9 out of 10 systems don’t last long due to lack of maintenance. Regular duct cleaning, changing your air filters, and annual preventative maintenances are all ways you significantly add years to your system’s lifespan.
If you are constantly smelling musty or other unpleasant odors, it could be a sign that your ducts are clogged and dirty with contaminants and pollutants. Many homeowners light candles or use air fresheners to mask the smell, but this is actually not what you want to do. In fact, scented candles carry their own set of problems for your air quality. Not only that, but candles and air fresheners only hide the smell but it doesn’t get rid of the problem. The best thing you can do is to have your ducts cleaned and serviced. This will not only improve your air quality, but it will also eliminate all those unpleasant odors swirling around.
Having your ducts cleaned regularly is important for every homeowner, but it is especially important if you’ve recently done home renovations, you have pets, you have children and/or seniors living with you, or you have smokers or people with allergies or asthma living with you.
