Why air duct cleaning is important and some of the benefits home and business owners see.
With all of the craziness going on in the world and in your day-to-day life, air duct cleaning may very well be the last thing on your mind. And that’s understandable; paying bills, getting kids to do, and putting food on the table should take precedence over air duct cleaning. But, it’s still important that you not put it off for too long.
Practically everything needs cleaning from time to time. Aside from aesthetic preferences, the main reason most people clean is to fight against bacteria and viruses to keep the home sanitary and healthy. While you can’t necessarily see your air ducts, they are no different. They still need a good cleaning from time to time, otherwise, they are prone to the buildup of bacteria, germs, viruses, and other contaminants you won’t want being shuttled throughout your home and the air ducts. Be sure to schedule air duct cleaning every three to five years to keep your home or business happy and healthy.
It’s estimated that more than 25 million Americans suffer from asthma and more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. Odds are, you are one of those millions. One thing that you can do to make life with allergies and asthma a little more tolerable is regular air duct cleaning services. Regular air duct cleaning minimizes the amount of dust, debris, pollen, dander, and general allergens in your HVAC system. The less of those that are in your system, the easier folks with asthma and allergies will be able to breathe in your home. Those who have more severe allergies or asthma should have air duct cleaning done more frequently.
If breathing easier and keeping your home sanitary weren’t reason enough to have regular air duct cleaning done, then maybe the energy efficiency/savings will change your mind. The more debris that builds up in your air ducts over time, the more difficulty your HVAC system will have moving air throughout the home. Dirty air ducts will make your system work harder, therefore using more energy and costing more on your monthly bills. If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint or at the very least save a few bucks monthly, regular air duct cleaning is a great way to do it.
Piggy-backing off of your system using more energy when your air ducts are full of debris build-up, your HVAC system can also have its lifespan reduced by dirty air ducts. As previously established, your system will have to work harder to provide the same performance. This increased stress on your system will shed years off its life. Just like overworking an appliance will shorten its longevity, dirty air ducts can reduce the lifespan of your furnace and air conditioning unit.
