Benefits of Duct Cleaning
The significance of having clean air ducts cannot be underestimated in your home or business premises. It is worth noting that the air that flows into your living spaces is supplied via the home’s ductwork. Therefore, it makes sense to ensure that your entire ductwork in your home is cleaned and disinfected regularly to ensure a high quality of your indoor air. Clean duct systems have numerous benefits such as:
1. Removal of Any Unpleasant Odors and Smells
Paints fumes, pets, tobacco use, household cleaning agents and food preparation can all cause a stale smell in your living spaces. If the air conditioner or furnace is running, these smells repeatedly get blown into the ductwork. Accumulation of dirt and dust over the years can also lead to a musty smell from the ductwork. Fungi and mold found within the ductwork can also produce unpleasant smells, especially if duct cleaning has not been done for a long time. This is because fungi and mold continue multiplying over time. Their odors ultimately get into your living spaces via the ductwork and such unpleasant smells may cause allergies to your family. Duct cleaning can help get rid of such fungi and mold and improve the air quality in your house and all of the odors trapped within your ductwork system.
2. Increase the Life of Your HVAC System
Most of your home’s air conditioners and heating systems fail due to the accumulation of dust and other pollutants. Therefore, a regular duct cleaning session can help in eliminating these problems before they escalate over a period of time. Regular duct cleaning is one of the surest ways to prolong the lifespan of your air conditioning and heating systems.
3. Saves Money By Reducing Utility Bills
The cost of replacement of your entire HVAC system can be extremely high. If you neglect cleaning your ducts for a long time, there are chances of your HVAC system breaking down and requiring replacement. Prevention is better than cure! It’s a lot more economical to have routine duct cleaning sessions than having to replace your entire ductwork.
When debris and dust are removed from the coils of the air duct, the rate of energy consumption also reduces significantly. This is because your heating and cooling systems will run efficiently without obstruction, thus making cooling and heating operations consume less energy. When your HVAC system is clogged with dust, debris, and other forms of air pollutants, it requires more energy to maintain the temperatures set at the thermostat. Since heating and cooling is the major component of a typical household utility bill, duct cleaning can significantly lower energy costs by about 20% to 50%.
4. Duct Cleaning Improves the Efficiency of Airflow
Your ductwork system may have a massive build-up of grime and dust and may restrict air from the air conditioner or the furnace from flowing. Consequently, this makes it harder for the heating and cooling system to work in your home, resulting in low efficiency compared to the clean ducts. These will provide the most cost-effective performance and will operate at a high peak. When there is an efficiency increase in the air conditioner, there is an increase in the air flowing through the AC ducting system.
5. Duct Cleaning Improves the Hygiene and the Quality of Your Indoor Air
An accumulation of dust and debris in your HVAC system can considerably lower the quality of your indoor air. Breathing poor quality indoor air may expose you to respiratory problems. Air dust contains harmful micro-organisms and contaminants such as mildew, pollen, bacteria, pets’ dander, and other forms of allergens. People suffering from asthma, allergies, and respiratory illnesses are more sensitive to these particles in the air. Dirty air in the home recirculates multiple times a day via the ductwork system, making it necessary to have periodic duct cleaning. Most importantly, homes with family members who have allergies are recommended to have duct cleaning on a regular basis to improve indoor air quality.
When the air in your home is clean, it becomes easy to breathe in the home and avoid respiratory problems and chronic allergies. Dust and pollutants enter through the nose and the lungs, triggering coughing and sneezing as well as bronchial congestion and sinus. Duct cleaning promotes the wellbeing of people and a comfortable living environment.
Dust particles landing on your bedding, floor, furniture, or anywhere in your house is reduced when ducts are routinely cleaned.
6. Protection Against Rodents and Insects
Your HVAC system can be comfortable places for a host of rodents, pests, and insects. However, regular duct cleaning reduces infestations of insects and rodents. In cases of an infestation, duct cleaning becomes extremely important because some of these insects spread diseases and different forms of allergens. Therefore, clean ducts have immense medical benefits for you and your family.
7. It Helps in the Diagnoses of Potentially Larger Problems
Regular duct cleaning sessions by an expert can help in diagnosing larger problems before they escalate to become disastrous. For instance, a build-up of debris and dust in your HVAC system can increase the risk of fire which can be devastating. Having professional duct cleaners check up your ductwork can help in the identification of potential leaks, thus ensuring that repair is maintained before the entire HVAC system breaks down.
8. Elimination of Allergens
If anyone in your family is allergic to dust, then duct cleaning can provide relief as it reduces the severity of symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, a runny nose etc. Every time you sneeze, cough or blow your nose, these harmful particles get circulated throughout the rest of your home via return ducts, thus making it easy for such allergies to spread quickly across your family members. Duct cleaning sessions can get rid of the allergens and prevent them from accumulating in your home and help in eliminating the growth of mold spores and other forms of allergens that cause respiratory complications to allergic people. Therefore, keeping your air ducts clean saves you money that would otherwise be used to seek medical treatment for allergies and respiratory complications.
Why Duct Cleaning is Not a Waste of Money
Duct cleaning every 3-5 years is highly recommended as it relieves you of a host of problems, as highlighted above. Clean ducts help in reducing the amount of dust and pollutants circulating in your living space, making the air in your home pure.
When you’re moving into a new home, or you have recently renovated your home, duct cleaning is highly recommended. A lot of contaminants like dust, and debris are released during any form of renovation. Even if it’s as small as a paint job. When your HVAC is running, all these particles get pushed to your living spaces, and this may cause respiratory problems. We also highly recommend duct cleaning when purchasing a new house as you have no idea when the previous owners had their last duct cleaning session done or if they ever even had one.
Routine daily indoor activities generate large amounts of microscopic air pollutants that remain stuck within your home by entering the ductwork and are then recirculated in the home multiple times a day. For instance, furnace filters may rapidly get loaded with dirt, dust, dander, pollen, and hair alongside other contaminants circulating through your air duct system. As a consequence, your HVAC system may begin losing its efficiency and form sticky layers of dirt, which further encourages the growth of mold spores which depend on these nutrients to spread and multiply. Therefore, entire duct cleaning is the surest way to get rid of these indoor air contaminants and ensure that you have quality indoor air.
