Your home’s heating, cooling and ventilation system is what pushes warm or cold air throughout your house. But as new air enters the system, it carries many outdoor contaminants with it. Those airborne impurities can get into your ducts and leave them filled with dust, dirt, grime and other debris over time. If you want to keep the air inside your home clean, periodic duct cleaning is essential. Keep reading to learn five reasons you should have your ducts cleaned today.
1. Remove dirt and dust from construction
If you have a new home, or you’ve recently had construction work done, drywall dust, carpet fibres, wood shavings and other debris may have settled into your ductwork. This type of debris can clog your furnace’s filters and over time, can damage the furnace itself.
2. Enjoy clean indoor air
Having your ducts cleaned can help remove impurities from the air. Dust, dirt, animal droppings, and mould can accumulate in your ducts over the years. Every time you turn on your HVAC system, those allergens are pushed throughout your home and into the very air that you breathe. Cleaning your ducts can greatly improve the air quality inside your home.
3. Keep your home clean
Cleaner indoor air means a cleaner home in general. By having your ducts cleaned you’ll cut down on the amount of dust that accumulates on your belongings. That means less time spent dusting, sweeping, and vacuuming.
4. Improve your health
If you suffer from asthma or allergies (or someone else in your home does), having your ducts cleaned can greatly reduce the severity of symptoms. Breathing in dirty air day after day is hard on everyone’s health and wellbeing, so it’s a good idea to have your ducts cleaned frequently to ensure that your whole family can breathe easy.
5. Improve the efficiency of your HVAC system
When your ducts are full of dust and debris, your furnace’s air filter can quickly become clogged. If left unchecked, a clogged filter will lead to a decrease in the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system, which could result in higher monthly energy bills and even permanent damage to the furnace.
