The Benefits Of Air Duct Cleaning

March 25, 2015

Many people do not realize the importance of air duct cleaning in maintaining their home’s heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Clean air ducts will increase the longevity of an HVAC, and reduce energy costs. It also means there will be less need for dusting and other home cleaning chores. Having an HVAC that is free of dust, equals a cleaner home environment for you and your family.

Clean Ducts Increase Efficiency

Dirt that circulates through your HVAC reduces the efficiency of the system. Lower efficiency is caused by the build-up of dirt on coils and that means the system has to work harder to cool or heat your home. Removal of dirt and debris will increase your system’s efficiency by up to 40% and that adds up to significantly reduced energy costs. It also means that your system will last longer since it won’t have to work as hard to circulate air through your home; air is completely recycled through a dwelling about 5 to 7 times a day.

Improve a Home’s Air Quality

Air duct cleaning can be helpful in maintaining a home’s good air quality. Not only does dust circulate with cooled or heated air, other particulates such as insect debris, pet dander, and mold may become airborne and move through your home with the dust. Such particulates in the air can cause allergy and asthma attacks, especially in people who are particularly sensitive to such substances.

It is especially important to have your air ducts inspected after the completion of remodeling or any kind of construction in the home. Dust caused by construction work may settle in your ducts. This dust can also reduce your system’s efficiency and impact your home’s air quality.
