Air Duct Cleaning - 5 Reasons Why You Should Keep Your Air Ducts Clean


The many great benefits of keeping your home's air ducts clean can make regular air duct cleaning a most important task to include as a part of a proactive maintenance routine for your home.

Cleaning and servicing your heating and air conditioning system (HVAC) is essential to help keep them energy-efficient and operating in a cost-effective manner. Make sure that any HVAC cleaning includes cleaning of the cooling coils, the drain pans, fans and heat exchangers. Failure to keep these components clean can cause dust, mold and/or allergens to infiltrate your ducting, which will then be blown into your home as air pollution. It's also a well-known fact that this type of indoor pollution from dirty air can be a prime cause of allergies, asthma and a host of other medical problems.

It's a great idea to have your air ducts cleaned when you have your heating and cooling system cleaned and serviced. Remember, the health and safety of your family depends upon keeping your home clean and safe from indoor pollution.

Here are 5 important benefits of keeping your home's air ducting system clean with regular air duct cleaning.

1. Saving Money. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that by cleaning as little as four-tenths of one inch of accumulated dust (slightly under ½ inch) from your heating/cooling system coils can decrease energy usage by as much as 21%. Imagine saving 21% of your next heating or cooling bill! Sound interesting?

2. Keeping Heating /Cooling Systems Reliable. It's estimated that 90% of heating and air conditioning systems breakdown or fail due to a lack of proper maintenance. Costs for repairing heating or cooling system is often quite expensive and total replacement of your HVAC systems can cost thousands of dollars.

3. Air Quality In Your Home. Air duct cleaning is crucial to healthy and clean indoor air. Allergens (pollen, pet dander, hair, etc.), dust and debris and toxins (mold, mildew, mouse droppings, etc.) are routinely found in home HVAC systems. If your air ducts are not cleaned on a regular basis, these pollutants can be blasted into your home via the heating and cooling systems. Remember, you don't have to have allergies or asthma as many of these pollutants have been shown to cause severe illnesses in some cases.

4. Allergies, Hay fever & Asthma. If anyone living in your home already suffers from allergies or asthma, air duct cleaning can help to provide a healthy environment for allergy and asthma sufferers. Regular cleaning has been proven to reduce the quantity of allergens and pollutants found in your home, ultimately reducing the chances for allergies and other serious illnesses.

5. Nasty Odors. A musty or "moist" odor in your home often means that mold and/or mildew is already lurking in your air ducts. Air fresheners, scented candles or incense will only mask dirty air for a short while. Professional cleaning can eliminate the smells almost completely in a very short while.
