Today many homeowners have the ductwork in their residences cleaned. The National Air Duct Cleaning Association has repeatedly discussed the benefits of keeping your air ducts clean in order to promote better indoor air quality. We’re explaining what exactly duct cleaning is and the advantages and disadvantages of this service.
What Is Duct Cleaning?
First of all, there are a few different methods for air duct cleaning. Some of these methods include using a rotary vacuum or a high-pressure air washing system. There are benefits and disadvantages to both so make sure to do your research on the methods and companies before hiring your duct cleaning specialist.
The Advantages Of Professional Air Duct Cleaning
Lower Energy Costs
By removing dust and dirt from the air ducts, your energy costs will be significantly lower. Clogged ducts lower the efficiency of your system, making it work much harder to pump out the same amount of air.
Indoor air quality within your home can have a great impact on your health. Dust and air contaminants such as mold are often found lingering and growing in heating and cooling vent systems. Air ducts also provide the perfect home for allergens. Keeping your air ducts clean will help those with allergies, asthma or other respiratory illnesses.
HVAC System Longevity
Many heating and cooling systems fail due to no routine maintenance being done on a regular schedule. The cost of routine maintenance is far cheaper than the cost of the replacement of your heating and cooling system.
Dust, fungi, and mildew in your air vent system can cause an unpleasant musty odor in your home. Unfortunately, these odors won’t just stay in the air ducts. The forced air pushes them into every room, making sure that your entire house smells musty. Additionally, these odors cannot be eliminated using air freshers. The only way to rid your home of that musty odor is to have your air ducts cleaned.
