3 Reasons to Schedule Your Home for Professional Duct Cleaning
We are heading toward cooler weather here in Orange, TX, and if you haven’t turned on your heating system yet, you will be soon. If you had your heating system maintained this year, we give you a big high-five. But there’s another part of your system that also needs maintenance: your ductwork. If it is dirty, it can cause you a number of problems. Here are three reasons why you’ll want to schedule our experts for professional duct cleaning before the winter officially starts:
Your ductwork doesn’t have to be cleaned annually, but it should be cleaned every 3-5 years. If you have pets and/or heavy smokers in your home, you’ll want to shorten that time to 2-4 years. Other times you’ll want to schedule your ductwork for cleaning is when you move into a new home or you’ve recently done interior construction on your home.
You are breathing dust.
The excess dust and dirt laying around in your ductwork gets a free ride into your home’s living spaces every single time your HVAC system turns on. If you have allergy sufferers in your home, or those with asthma, this could become a serious issue. Hiring pros like ours to clean your ductwork means every inch of your system will be cleaned, making your indoor air much healthier for everyone.
Your HVAC is under stress.
If the layer of dust and dirt in your HVAC system is significant enough, it will restrict the air flow in your system. Your HVAC requires a specific amount of air flow to work correctly. If this amount is reduced by a significant layer of dust and dirt, your system will work harder to overcome the restriction. This puts your system under stress and causes it to use more energy to operate.
