Do I Really Need My Ducts Cleaned?
We hear this question a lot, and we understand why. Ductwork isn’t the most visible part of your HVAC system, and unless you can detect something really wrong, it may seem like trying to fix something that isn’t broken. However, dirty ductwork can lead to multiple problems, and these problems can quickly become systemic. But you can avoid these problems by scheduling professional duct cleaning every 3-5 years. So why should you clean your ducts? Here are some questions to consider:
Do you like clean air?
This may seem like a silly question because of course you do – everyone does. However, if your ductwork is coated in a layer of dust and dirt, these particles get a free, direct ride right into your home’s living spaces every single time your HVAC system turns on. If you are cleaning your home like mad every week only to find the same amount of dust and dirt everywhere, it’s time to see if your ducts need cleaning.
Do you want better energy efficiency?
It can be easy to think that most of your energy efficiency lay with the mechanical parts of your HVAC system, but your ductwork system is equally as important. This is because the air needs to be balanced in your ductwork for your HVAC to work properly. If there’s enough dust and dirt in your system, it can restrict the air flow, causing your system to work harder and use more energy.
Do you want less dirt and dust in your system?
Dirt and dust coat everything, and once you have a significant amount of dirt and dust circulating through your ductwork system, it is pretty inevitable that the components, motors and wiring will also be covered. Dust and dirt layers can act as insulation on your coils and gum up moving parts, wreaking havoc on your system.
