Why Air Duct Cleaning is Important

Most people have no idea whether or not their ductwork is in need of cleaning, and most of those people don’t care either way. They figure that if it were a serious enough problem to merit doing anything about, it would at least be noticeable. Here’s the thing, though: you likely have been feeling the effects of having dirty air ducts all this time. You just assumed what you were experiencing was normal.

Clogged air ducts do two major things, which we already touched on above:

  • They insulate the ducts: This is a problem, because it inhibits the free movement of air through the ducts. Your air conditioner and heater have to work harder to push air through a dirty ductwork system, which means you end up paying more to use those systems on a monthly basis.
  • They provide a breeding ground for contaminants: Dust and dander tend to collect in ductwork, which increases the odds of allergy attacks. Germs, pollen, and mold spores are common as well. That means that you’re actually more likely to get sick throughout the year if you have dirty ductwork.

Air duct cleaning is able to remedy these issues by removing all of the dust and other built–up contaminants in the ductwork, improving your indoor air quality and the efficiency of your HVAC systems at the same time. That’s why it’s a good idea to have it done periodically.

When to Schedule Air Duct Cleaning

If you’ve never had it done before we’re going to go ahead and recommend you have it done as soon as possible. If you have had it done before, it’s a good idea to schedule it at least once every couple of years. You don’t need to have it done every year, in most circumstances. Scheduling it every once in a while is at least enough to prevent any buildup from getting too egregious, though.
