Ductwork is the last thing we think of when we’re talking about heating and cooling system maintenance, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important. Quite the opposite–the fact that it gets so little attention means that a duct cleaning could make a noticeable difference in your home’s air quality.
The benefits of a whole-home duct cleaning include:
- Improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system. Buildup of dust and other debris in your ducts could restrict airflow, causing your AC or Furnace to work harder in order to move the air and keep your home at the desired temperature. Cleaning the ducts can increase the efficiency of your system and help cut down on your utility bills.
- Decrease allergens and irritants in your home. If you have pets, you probably spend quite a bit of your time wiping down the surfaces in your home and vacuuming vent covers. You probably don’t want to think about the amount of pet dander, fur, and dust that is accumulating in your ductwork and being blown throughout your home. If anyone in your home deals with allergies or asthma, cleaning the irritants, pollen, and microbes out of the ductwork can help.
- Prevent and remove unpleasant odors. A good cleaning can help your house smell fresh. Paint fumes, smoke, cleaning supplies, mold, and much more can get caught or build up in your air ducts, which can spread unpleasant smells throughout your home.
- Improve the air in your home. Air passes through your ductwork and is circulated throughout your entire home, and can easily pick up and carry irritants and dust to every room in your house. Duct cleaning can help keep your entire home cleaner and smelling better than it would otherwise.
