Your home’s HVAC system is one of the most important parts of the infrastructure: a good furnace provides warmth in the winter, and your air conditioner keeps your house cool in the summer. However, the air ducts in your home are essential parts of the HVAC system, as well. Without a properly functioning system of air ducts, your furnace and AC unit can’t send heated and cooled air to every part of your home. This one of the reasons why hiring a professional for air duct cleaning just makes sense.
Professional air duct cleaning can effectively remove the dust and other debris that reduce the functionality of your HVAC system. As we’ll review in this article, there are numerous other advantages of hiring a professional to clean your home’s air ducts.
Why hiring a professional for air duct cleaning makes sense
#1. Professionals have the proper training and equipment
If all you need to do to clean out your air ducts is remove built-up dust, it may seem like you could accomplish the task with a good vacuum cleaner as part of your annual spring cleaning. However, thorough air duct cleaning requires specialized equipment and the ability to access all parts of your ductwork, which can be difficult or flat-out impossible to do with a standard vacuum cleaner.
It’s also common for insects and other small pests to take up residence in your air ducts, so cleaning must include measures to safely remove any potential pests and their droppings. A professional air duct cleaning expert has access to industrial-grade equipment and the proper training to clean your ductwork safely.
#2. Clean air ducts improve performance and lower utility bills
When your home’s air ducts start to build up dirt, dust, and tiny insects, it makes it harder for air to move through them properly. Removing this debris reduces the strain on your furnace and air conditioner so they don’t have to turn on as often to maintain the temperature in your home.
You may also notice that your furnace and AC unit are quieter then they do run because they don’t have to cycle as much to move the air around your home. Reduced strain on your HVAC equipment also reduces their energy requirements, so you can enjoy lower utility bills.
#3. Professional cleaning improves the air quality in your home
When dust, pollen, and other allergens get inside your home’s air ducts, they start circulating throughout your home every time the furnace or air conditioner runs. This can increase seasonal allergy symptoms or health issues from mold and mildew.
Giving your home a thorough spring cleaning can eliminate the allergens and dust that build up over the winter on all indoor surfaces, but without clean air ducts, these irritants can return immediately. A professional cleaning service can remove all debris that negatively affects your home’s indoor air quality, including tiny insects and pollens that contribute to breathing difficulties.
