Why Duct Cleaning is Important

If you have a centralized heating and air conditioning system, then there is ducting running throughout the walls of your home. This ducting helps to provide a pathway for cold and warm air to be delivered to your home. Having it cleaned regularly is a must for the following 5 reasons.

Better Air Quality

Think about all the dust and debris that goes through your home on a regular basis. While you can easily wipe off a counter, getting into the ducting is a lot harder. Therefore, most homeowners don't usually even attempt cleaning out their ductwork.

Rather, you'll want to call in a professional who has the right equipment to do the job. They'll be able to remove those harmful allergens and pollutants that are currently hiding in your ductwork. This will create better air quality inside of your home.

Increase Airflow

As dust and debris makes it way through your ducting, it will start to turn into grime. This will stick to the actual ductwork and inhibit some of the airflow for your system. When you have your ducts cleaned out, this build-up grime will be removed. This will ultimately bring your system airflow back to its most effective level.

Get Rid Of Nasty Odors

If there is a stale stench coming from your ductwork, it can be very unpleasant. A combination of pets, high traffic, tobacco, and other factors can stick to the grime in your ducting. This can make it impossible to remove the odor with things like freshener spray. Instead, a good duct cleaning can get rid of the grime that has the nasty odor particles stuck to it.

Save Energy Costs

As you learned above, not having your ductwork cleaned can result in an excess buildup of grime. This grime hinders the airflow throughout your ducting. This results in your HVAC system working harder to provide your home with a comfortable temperature both in the winter and the summer. When you have your ducts cleaned, it will remove this excess grime and allow for better airflow throughout your system. This will allow your system to go back to operating at its most energy-efficient level.

Restore Your Ducting To Normal After A Home Renovation Project

Whether you've decided to put an addition on your home or to remodel one of your existing rooms, the dust that it creates can be damaging for your HVAC system. While there are preventative measures you should take, such as taping off the registers in that sector of your home, some dust will still get into your system. It's best to schedule a duct cleaning just after a home renovation project to restore your ducting to normal.
