Top Benefits of Cleaning Air Ducts

As a general rule of thumb for consumers we typically mention that “if your ducts look dirty, they probably are.” Dirty Duct systems should be inspected by a trusted duct cleaning professional.

Here are some of the most common reasons why homeowners choose to have their home air ducts cleaned:

  • Renovation Projects
  • Pets
  • Moving into a new home
  • Mold Issues / Water Damage / Fire Restoration

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is one of the concerns that most homeowners have when they decide to look into having their air ducts cleaned. In a typical family home, an average of up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your home heating and cooling system acts like the lungs of your house as it takes air in and breathes air out.

Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.

While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies. 

Energy Savings

Studies have shown that, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.

When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness. 

 This is when you have the Air Ducts, Furnace Blower & Filtration System thoroughly cleaned.
