Homeowners are often curious about regular duct cleaning. Is it really necessary, and does it make that much of a difference for a home?
The answer to that is a qualified “yes.” The qualification is that you must have experienced professionals with the best tools handle this job. Relying on someone who makes a suspiciously low offer to clean your ducts will usually result in nothing more than a superficial cleaning that doesn’t offer you any benefits. Make sure that when you schedule regular duct cleaning (every 3 to 5 years) that you go to experienced ventilation experts like those on our team.
The difference that great duct cleaning offers
- Improved HVAC performance: The main benefit of cleaning the ductwork in a home is that it improves the performance of the heating and cooling system. Dust, dirt, and other debris caught along the vent walls will lower the airflow through the ventilation system, and that means you won’t receive the level of conditioned air necessary for comfort.
- Lower utility bills: The resistance that a dirty set of ducts will place against airflow in the HVAC system means the AC and heater will need to work harder than normal—and you’ll see higher utility bills. The difference that professional cleaning can make on what you pay each month to run your HVAC system can be substantial.
- Better indoor air quality: Think of how many pollutants clogged air ducts can send out into your home each time the blower fan turns on. Cleaning the ducts will greatly reduce indoor airborne contaminants, which will make a huge difference for people who suffer from asthma and allergies.
- A healthier AC and heater: There’s a larger change of debris betting inside the heater and air conditioner when the ducts are clogged, and this can cause repair issues. Keeping the ducts clean helps protect your comfort system.
