Have you been thinking about getting a duct cleaning? Maybe your local heating and air contractor has been discussing the possibility with you. Maybe you have been reading about duct cleanings online. Perhaps, you have been convinced by the many ads that you are receiving in the mail.
Whatever the situation is, you need to be aware of the fact that duct cleanings can be extremely beneficial and there are a number of reasons that you should consider getting one.
Improves Overall Indoor Air Quality
Just think about all the time that you and your family spend in the home. When you are not at work or school, you are in the home. Your wife and kids probably spend more time in the home than you, which should really put an emphasis on the indoor air quality.
Just through normal occupation in the home, you can generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants. These can be anything from dander to dust, cooking odors, and chemicals. These such contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and circulated throughout the home every time the HVAC comes on. Over time, the re-circulation of these contaminants are going to cause them to build up in the ductwork.
Improves The Efficiency Of The Unit
When your duct system collects dust and dirt over the years it will cause the system to become inefficient. All systems are going to build up dust and debris it doesn’t matter how clean you keep the home. When such dust and debris accumulate in the system it means that the system has to work harder to force the air through the ducts.
This not on increases the wear and tear of the system, but it is going to raise your utility bills. Duct cleanings can kill both of these birds with one stone.
