The ductwork within your home is likely out of sight and out of mind. But while the ductwork may be the underdog of your HVAC system, it has an important job to do and needs to be maintained. Maintaining your ductwork starts with routine cleaning, which offers numerous benefits for both you and you home. Still not convinced? Learn three reasons you should schedule a professional duct cleaning below.
1. Reduce Indoor Air Pollution
Poor air quality is the bane of modern civilization. Studies show that indoor air is actually worse than outdoor air, even in cities where air pollution levels are shockingly high. Poor air quality brings a host of health problems and aggravates many more. Allergies, asthma, bronchitis and even pneumonia are aggravated or initiated by particles in the air.
These particles include things like fungi and mold spores as well as debris from dead insects and dust of all kinds. Mold and fungi thrive within the dark air ducts in your home. Meanwhile, insects die inside of the air ducts and dust and dirt accumulate naturally. As your HVAC system cycles on and off, all of this debris is blown into your home through air ducts. A professional duct cleaning will remove all of this debris, reducing the amount of indoor air pollution inside your home.
2. Boost the Efficiency of Your HVAC System
Your HVAC system is powerful, but if the air ducts are clogged with dust and dirt, the fan within your air conditioning system will have to work harder to deliver cool air. Not only will the fan work harder, but when enough air isn’t delivered, the entire system has to run longer, costing you money to operate as well as causing stress and wear on the system itself.
3. Boost Your Home’s Cleanliness
Are there dust bunnies under your bed? Do cobwebs love the corners of your walls? Does it seem like every time you turn around the furniture needs dusting?
When your HVAC system is blowing out dust and dirt every time it cycles on, you’re fighting a losing battle! Having the air ducts cleaned will make a big difference in the overall cleanliness of your home.
