The ductwork for your home’s heating and cooling system is an integral part of the system. To keep your system running at its best, it needs to be regularly maintained. It is recommended that ductwork be cleaned and inspected every three to five years or as needed. Consider the following four reasons why you should schedule a duct cleaning.
#1 Boost Indoor Air Quality
Does your home smell musty or moldy for no apparent reason? The reason might be lurking in your ducts. Accumulations of dust, plus moisture, make the perfect environment for mold, mildew and bacteria to grow in your ductwork. Cleaning your ducts will help eliminate this problem.
#2 Protect the Health of Loved Ones
Over time, contaminants in the air, including viruses, pollen, pet dander and VOCs can settle in your ductwork. Every time air is circulated through the ducts, these contaminants continue to recirculate through the air. This can cause your family to suffer from colds/viruses more often, in addition to aggravating existing allergy or respiratory conditions.
#3 Improve Efficiency of Your HVAC System
Eliminating the buildup of dust and other debris in your ductwork will improve the airflow of your HVAC system. Decreased airflow causes your system to work harder and use more energy. When your system is running efficiently, it will use less energy to operate. This means a decrease in your heating and cooling costs each month.
#4 Fewer Repairs for Your Heater and AC Unit
When your ducts are clogged with dust and debris, your heater and ac unit need to work harder to warm and cool the air in your home. This causes premature wear and tear on your units and can lead to early replacement. Maintaining your ductwork can help prevent this from happening and saves you money on repairs and replacement costs.
