Why a Duct Cleaning is Beneficial

When it comes to cleaning your home, there’s usually one spot that many homeowners miss: their air ducts. While this is not a common, nor simple, task to complete on your own, it’s rather important to get the job done right away. If you’ve been contemplating whether or not you need to schedule a professional duct cleaning, here are some of the many benefits to consider.

Improves Indoor Air Quality

Unlike being able to visibly see dirt and dust on a kitchen countertop, seeing how bogged down your indoor air quality really is will be completely impossible. Since a majority of airborne debris is invisible to the human eye, many homeowners won’t be able to decipher if their indoor air quality has seen better days. However, there are some common signs to look for:

  • Constant sneezing/sniffling

  • Dry eyes

  • Strange odors

  • Coughing

While these are only a few of the major contenders of poor indoor air quality, many of these factors can easily be eliminated with a professional duct cleaning. When a technician comes to your home, they’ll be able to safely scrub your air ducts from top to bottom. Since most indoor allergens are caused by the debris that cakes onto your ducts, you’re likely to notice a big improvement with your air quality the minute the cleaning is complete.

Increases Energy Efficiency

Have you been noticing much higher energy bills than usual lately? There’s a great possibility that the root of the problem is due to your dirty air ducts. When an air duct is bogged down with dirt, debris, and dander, it makes it much harder for air to pass through and be distributed evenly throughout your home.

This can tempt any homeowner to crank up their air conditioner higher, just so that they will receive the cold air they desire. To cut back on over-exerting your central air unit, and to reduce your overall energy bill, duct cleaning is the solution you’re looking for. Once your ducts are clean, it will be much simpler for air to pass on through without any blockages or problems.

Preserves Investment

When you opt to have a central air unit installed in your home, not only will you be making a wise investment, but it’s one you’ll want to preserve. However, if you tend to ignore it, then there’s a chance that you’ll be spending much more money on repairs and maintenance.

In addition to tune-ups, and having problems repaired the minute you spot them, you’ll want to also throw duct cleanings into the mix. This will be the cherry on top of the HVAC cake, since you’ll be helping your unit work at a normal pace and not be bogged down by detrimental debris.

Cuts Back on Indoor Allergies

Sometimes, a home can feel dirty and dingy for no good reason at all — or least for a reason that you can’t detect. As we mentioned earlier, dirty air ducts will hinder the quality of your indoor air quality (I.A.Q) without any visible signs. However, poor I.A.Q. will provide indoor allergies, which are never fun to combat. Cleaning your air ducts at least once a year will help keep these at bay and can make it much easier to breathe around your home.
