5 Benefits of Cleaning Your Air Ducts
The air ducts in your home have a very important job. They circulate the air flow from your heating and cooling equipment throughout your home to ensure it is properly conditioned at all times. And this occurs multiple times every day.
But it’s not just the warmth or coolness that impacts you and your family; it impacts the air you breathe as well. How many hours do you spend inside? 10? 12? And that’s every day.
It’s important to ensure it is as clean as possible.
Air duct cleaning involves removing the dust and contaminants that exist within the ductwork. This includes all areas of the system, including the supply and return air ducts as well as the registers in each room. Air duct cleaning involves powerful vacuums that pull dust and debris from deep within, preventing it from moving and circulating throughout your home.
If you’ve never had your ducts cleaned before, now may be a perfect time. There are many benefits to duct cleaning, including:
Creating a cleaner living environment
Like everything in your home, dust can start to settle in your ductwork after just a few hours of non-movement. And when the system powers up, that dust begins to move. But it doesn’t just stay in the ductwork, it comes out and into your living environment, settling on your furniture, your bedding, your flooring. By removing the dust from within, you’ll make your home a cleaner place to live.
Improving your air quality
Take a deep breath. How clean is the air you are breathing? Even if no one in your home suffers from allergies or respiratory conditions, cleaner air helps keep you healthier overall. Every time you breathe in dust and pollutants, they have the potential to trigger sneezing and coughing, as well as impact your sinuses or bronchial congestion. Cleaning your air ducts regularly ensures you’ll always have a clean air supply to breathe in.
Reducing irritants in the air
Let’s face it, it’s not just dust that lurks in your air ducts. Harmful contaminants and microorganisms live there too. Pet dander, bacteria, pollen, mildew, and other pollutants can all impact the air you breathe. A periodic air duct cleaning helps keep the family members in your home healthier instead or circulating potential problems over and over again.
Removing smells and odors
Every home has its own unique smell. And sometimes it isn’t the most pleasant thing. Pets, cleaning agents, paint fumes, mildew, food, tobacco use, and more all contribute to stale smells that can settle in over time. A detailed cleaning of the air ducts can help remove odor that is trapped in dust particles, giving you a fresher smelling home.
When ductwork and registers have a heavy buildup of dust and grime, they may not operate as efficiently as possible. When the air supply is cut off in any capacity, it means your system has to work harder to accomplish the same outcome. A cleaner system is designed to operate as efficiently as possible, giving you a system that operates at peak efficiency and provides cost-effective performance year round.
