If you’ve got an air conditioning system, you probably change the filters like clockwork. But how often do you get your ducts cleaned? Many people aren’t aware that HVAC ductwork needs regular cleaning. There are actually quite a few reasons why you should schedule a spring air duct cleaning with our team. Let’s review them.
Why schedule a spring air duct cleaning from ABC?
1. Improves air flow efficiency
With your ducts clogged, air can’t properly circulate. That means it takes more effort from your AC unit to cool or heat your home. Over time, that may lead to higher energy costs. Cleaning out your ductworks allows your HVAC to work to its full capacity.
Of course, if you’re looking to maximize your air conditioner’s efficiency this spring, we also recommend pairing your air duct cleaning with an air conditioning tune-up from our HVAC technicians.
2. Removes allergens
The experts at ABC Cooling, Heating & Plumbing recommend a good cleaning for the sake of your health. All sorts of nasty things can be hanging out in your air, including the following:
- Pet dander
- Mold spores
These and more can coat the inside of your ducts, contaminating any air passing through. If allowed to accumulate, pollutants can overwhelm your filters. This may lead to worse allergy symptoms and increased illness for vulnerable members of your family.
3. Reduces bad odors
All that junk in your HVAC system can lead to unpleasant smells. Since the system distributes air all throughout the house, one spot of mold can make the whole place smell bad. Plus, you might also notice odors if you have pets, due to the buildup of dander.
4. Increases air quality
A clean system means you can breathe easier—both in a literal and figurative sense! We tend to think of indoor spaces as cleaner than outdoors, but this can be turned on its head when it comes to air quality. Without proper HVAC maintenance, you may just be circulating dirty air.
5. Cuts down on cleaning
With dirty AC ductwork, it’s not just the air that’s dirty. When an overworked HVAC system doesn’t pollutants out of the air, that dust settles on your furniture, carpet, and clothes. That means more vacuuming, sweeping, and dusting. With air duct cleaning, you can remove a good deal of that trapped dust and dirt from your indoor air’s circulation. That means a cleaner home that reduces your need to dust as often.
