If your home’s ductwork hasn’t been cleaned recently, it may be time.
What is air duct cleaning? HVAC duct cleaning is the process of removing dirt, dust, and other debris from the air ducts and vents that supply air throughout your home. Duct cleaning typically involves cleaning the supply and return air ducts, registers, grilles, diffusers, and other heating and cooling system components.
What are the benefits of cleaning dirty air ducts?
1 – Improved indoor air quality
A dirty HVAC venting system can jeopardize indoor air quality by circulating pollutants like dust, mould, and pollen inside our homes. This can lead to worsening allergies and asthma. In addition to changing the filter regularly, cleaning your HVAC air ducts can help alleviate these issues and significantly improve indoor air.
2 – Better energy efficiency
When your HVAC ducts are dirty, it causes your system to work harder than it should to regulate the temperature in your home. This extra work leads to higher energy consumption and higher utility bills. Clean air ducts mean your HVAC system can operate more efficiently, saving you money.
3 – Extends the lifespan of your HVAC system
Dirty ducts can lead to HVAC system malfunctions or breakdowns, which can be costly to repair or replace. By scheduling regular maintenance cleaning, you can extend the lifespan of your HVAC system.
How often should HVAC duct cleaning be done?
This depends on several factors—the number of household occupants, pets, smokers, and the environment around your house. Generally, HVAC duct cleaning should be done every three to five years.
