Your floors may be spotless, and your counters may be dust-free, but what if your home isn’t as clean as it seems? Have you thought about the areas that are hidden from you?
HVAC ducts are a common hiding place for dust, dirt, pollen, and other allergens in the house. If left uncleaned, your HVAC system will pump these contaminants through every inch of your home along with cool or warm air. If you’re still not convinced, here are the top six reasons why you should get a residential duct cleaning as soon as possible!
Lower Dirt And Debris Levels
Dust, dirt and debris can easily find their way into the duct system as your central air system draws outside air in to cool or warm the house. Dusty vents and ducts not only create more housework for you but also often attract rodents and other pests looking for a cozy nest for the winter months.
Eliminate Other Toxins
Other than dust and dirt, mould, mildew, and bacteria can often grow in ductwork systems, especially if the environment is warm and humid. In some cases, mould and mildew infestations get so bad that the ducts need to be replaced immediately. Regular cleaning will help you avoid costly replacements.
Allergies And Asthma Symptoms Relief
If you or your family members suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory issues and have exacerbated symptoms, the collected allergen in the air ducts may be to blame. Dust, debris, pet dander, fur, pollen, mildew, etc., are common allergens that can find their way into air ducts and circulate throughout the home without regular duct cleaning.
Increase The Lifespan Of Your HVAC System
When an HVAC unit has a dirty ductwork system, it has to work harder to push air through all the debris and keep air circulating evenly throughout the home. This will lead to more significant wear and tear on your HVAC system motor over time. Regular preventative maintenance will likely save you a costly replacement down the road.
Save On Your Monthly Energy Bills
If your HVAC unit is working harder than it should, it also draws more power to keep doing its job. The result? Your monthly energy bill is more expensive than it needs to be! If you see an upward trend in your energy usage, it’s probably time to clear out your dirty air ducts.
Make Sure Your Home Is Safe
Did you know that dusty ducts can be a fire hazard? All dust is full of dry and flammable materials. The fire risk is even greater if you have an older HVAC unit or use propane to run your furnace, stove, or fireplace.
