Do you remember the last time you had your air ducts professionally cleaned? If the answer is no, then it may be time to schedule a cleaning. Your ductwork is responsible for the conditioned air that runs around your home, and when your air duct hasn’t been cleaned in a few years, it can be carrying around dust and debris.
Breathing in dust and debris can lead to upper respiratory issues or aggravate those who already have an underlying condition such as asthma. Still not convinced that air duct cleaning is worth the investment? Check out these other benefits:
Healthier Air Quality
One of the biggest benefits of investing in air duct cleaning is the improvement of your home’s air quality. The comfort of your home isn’t limited to just the temperature; good air quality makes it easier for your body to breathe, feels fresh as it enters your lungs, and creates a feeling of calmness over the whole household. When your air ducts are spreading around airborne particles, like dust and debris, your air can feel a bit stale. It can feel heavier to take a breath and can be toxic for individuals who suffer from asthma or allergies. Removing dust and debris from your air ducts will immediately alleviate some of the more persistent and uncomfortable symptoms that individuals with respiratory issues face.
Saves Time on Routine Cleaning
Ever give your home a thorough cleaning, removing all the dust from furniture and window sills, only to come back a few days later to find a new layer of the pesky stuff? It’s extremely annoying and it makes keeping a neat and tidy home very difficult. However, the problem may be right above you. When your air ducts are dirty, the dust and debris sitting inside of it get carried around your house, replacing the dust that you just cleaned up. Save yourself the headache and invest in an air duct cleaning. Not only will you beat the dust, but your home will also smell fresher and feel cleaner.
Improve HVAC Performance
Air ducts are vital for transporting the air from your HVAC system throughout your home. Dust and debris inside the ducts can slow down this process by blocking airflow. Your HVAC system will then have to work overtime to ensure that your house is keeping your set preferences of the perfect temperature. This can increase your energy bills and cause damage to your HVAC system over time. Investing in an air duct cleaning will allow your HVAC system to work unhindered, allowing the treated air to get throughout your home with ease. This will allow your unit to maximize its energy use, ultimately saving you money.

- It’s been a year or two since your last air duct cleaning
- You just bought a new home
- Dust is accumulating around your air return vents and other air registers
