3 Benefits of Having Your Air Ducts Cleaned Before Summer
May 25, 2018
Do you know what’s inside your air ducts? Over time, the air ducts supplying your home with climate controlled air can become filthy with all kinds of debris, including dust, pollen insects, food particles and pests. Before summer begins, it’s important to have your air ducts cleaned to remove all the filth to help keep your indoor air clean. Here are some benefits of having your air ducts cleaned before summer rolls around:
1. Improve Indoor Air Quality
Dirty air ducts can send dust and pollen throughout your home, causing an increase in indoor allergy symptoms and breathing difficulties in individuals with Asthma, COPD and other lung conditions. Your air ducts may be dirty if you notice an excessive amount of dust on your furnishings and mold, dirt or dust inside the ducts.
2. Improved Air Flow
If your air ducts are dirty, you may notice a reduced airflow throughout your home. This is because your air ducts can get clogged with dirt, dust, pollen and other debris. When this happens, it can restrict the airflow through your home, resulting in rooms that may feel stuffy, stagnant or humid.
3. Improved HVAC Operating Efficiency and Lifespan
When dirt and dust are blown through your air ducts, the particles are made airborne, and as your HVAC system circulates the air, these particles can get trapped in your air filter. These particles can reenter your HVAC system and clog the air filter, which results in your unit working harder to maintain your desired thermostat setting, causing an increase in the wear and tear on your system. Having your air ducts professionally cleaned on a regular basis can improve your HVAC unit’s efficiency and help maximize its expected useful life.
