Why should you clean your air ducts? Here’s the short answer: Because they get dirty! Air ducts are the life blood of air quality in your home, and what’s more vital to life than oxygen. Here are five benefits to regularly getting your air ducts cleaned.
Your HVAC system is the lungs of your home. Dander, dust, and chemicals produce over time, and they are pulled into the heating and cooling system. The circulation of these things can eventually build up in your air ducts and affect the cleanliness of your air.
Twenty-five to 40% of energy used in the HVAC system is wasted. When contaminants build up and pollute your system, they have to work harder to run and it can cause the life span of your system to shorten. If your system is working harder, it’s going to cost you more to run it.
We don’t mean you smell, but your house can if your air ducts aren’t clean! Pets, household cleaning agents, tobacco use, and some foods can repeatedly flow through the house and accumulate in your ducts. Cleaning these ducts can remove odor trapping particles.
Spring time is a busy time of year for the housing market. If you’re selling your home, having your air ducts cleaned can show a buyer than you take good care in maintaining your home.
Mold being present in an HVAC system is a complaint that happens more often than not. It’s sneaky, and can grow without being seen. If you’re routinely inspecting your air ducts and cleaning them, mold will be something that won’t stand a chance in sneaking up on you.
