Indoor Air Quality and Dust Reduction
How much dust floats through your air on a daily basis? We’re not here to judge — we just want to draw your attention to the fact that your vents might be the primary source of dust and dander throughout your home. In fact, many homeowners have found that they need to dust much less after a duct cleaning appointment!
Indoor air quality isn’t just beneficial for maintaining a clean home, either. Individuals suffering from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions can all benefit from a reduction in the dirt, dander, pollen, dust, and other contaminants that accumulate in ducts. Whether or not you have anyone in your household who suffers from a respiratory condition, everyone will be able to breathe easier when the air is cleaner!
If you’ve read any of our other articles, then you know that we’re proponents of investing in regular HVAC filter changes not just for better air quality, but for lower energy bills, too. Saturated HVAC filters make it more difficult for the unit to push air through efficiently, which in turn causes the unit to work overtime to compensate.
The same principle applies to your duct system, and you may notice an immediate decrease in your monthly energy bills after investing in a duct cleaning appointment. You’ll likely notice a reduction in how long it takes for your HVAC system to heat or cool your home, too!
Do you smell a stale or musty odor coming from your vents whenever your HVAC unit is turned on? If so, then it’s likely that you have significant buildup in your ducts that’s causing it. Buildup can have its own distinct odor, but it’s also known for picking up cooking odors, smoke, and other pollutants inside your home.
Depending on the condition of your vents and how much buildup has accumulated, you might also have mold or mildew growing in your ducts. A professional HVAC technician can make a fast diagnosis and treat the problem immediately, preventing the spread and protecting the rest of your home.
Longer HVAC Lifespan
Above, we mentioned that duct cleaning can help you reduce your monthly energy bills by boosting efficiency and lowering the amount of energy required to heat and cool your home? By extension, this means that your HVAC system isn’t having to work as hard and is at a lower risk of breaking down prematurely. That said, don’t forget to schedule regular HVAC maintenance throughout the year!
