If you’re like most people, you probably don’t give your home’s air ducts a whole lot of thought.
Often hidden away behind walls and above ceilings, they’re pretty easy to forget about. But did you know that dirty air ducts can have a negative impact on your family’s health and decrease the efficiency of your HVAC system?
Your HVAC system is likely one of your home’s most expensive components. With routine maintenance, including regular air duct cleaning, you can protect your investment while improving the quality of the air inside your home.
Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Over time, dust, pet dander and dirt build up inside air ducts. Having this debris removed from time to time offers several benefits:
- Improved HVAC Efficiency. It’s unlikely that your ducts will ever become so clogged that airflow is blocked entirely. However, even a little bit of buildup is enough to create enough resistance to hinder normal airflow. When your ducts are filthy, your filters also clog up faster and force your system to work harder to distribute air. This decreased efficiency leads to higher energy bills and excess wear and tear on your system.
- Extended Equipment Lifespan. As debris builds up in your ducts, it also builds up on sensitive system components. The strain of forcing are through clogged filters may also overwhelm fan motors, resulting in premature system failure. Keeping up with air duct cleaning is a simple step you can take to extend the life of your HVAC system.
- Improved Indoor Air Quality. Did you know that the air inside your home can be more polluted than the air outdoors? When air ducts aren’t kept clean, the dust and debris within is constantly circulated throughout your home. This can result in allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems, especially among children and the elderly.
