Benefits of Regular Air Duct Cleaning
Feb 23, 2018
The air ducts in your home accumulate a wide variety of contaminants that can harm you and your family. Not to mention, they can interfere with the comfort of your home and can even affect the price of your heating and cooling costs if you have central air. It’s recommended you have your ducts cleaned regularly, or sometimes more frequently depending on various issues like whether anyone in your home smokes.
Remove Allergens and Other Harmful Particles
Allergens and other harmful particles build up inside your ducts and blow back into the air you breathe every time your furnace runs. If you’re allergic to mold or immunocompromised, you could become sick as a result of dirty air vents, since mold can grow inside of them.
Lower Energy Costs
Dust and other particles accumulate in your HVAC vents and block the air from escaping as effectively as it could. The reduced airflow means it takes longer for your home to heat or cool off, ultimately increasing your energy costs. And your home won’t be as comfortable as it could.
Reduce Odors in Your Home
Mold and fungi develop inside of your air ducts and release foul odors as they continue to grow and reproduce. Odors from inside of your home enter into the ductwork including the smells from cooking, decaying garbage, etc. These odors remain inside of the ducts and are emitted into your home, causing unpleasant aromas. Cleaning your ducts reduces pungent smells in your home.
Lower Cost of HVAC Repairs
Your unit has to work harder to heat or cool your home when dust and debris accumulate within it, which may lead to premature failure. You’ll have to spend more to repair your HVAC equipment if it’s working harder than it has to and may have to replace it sooner than you should.
