Your ductwork is rarely the first thing that comes to mind when you think of home, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important – in fact, the fact that it’s so often overlooked means that there’s a good chance you could make a noticeable impact on your home’s air quality by getting it cleaned.
Some of the key reasons you should get your air ducts clean include:
- Remove unpleasant odors: Tobacco smoke, paint fumes, household cleaning supplies, mold, and so much more can get caught or build up in your air ducts, which can lead to strange and even unpleasant smells wafting through your old house. A good clean can remove all of this and leave your home smelling fresh.
- Improve your AC and heater’s efficiency and cut back on your energy bill: Ductwork that has a heavy buildup of gunk and dust will restrict airflow throughout your home, requiring your heating and cooling systems to work extra hard to keep your home at the temperature you want it. Clearing out these problems will not only increase the units’ efficiency, but it can also help cut back on your energy bill by limiting the amount of time your heater or AC needs to run.
- Improve the air in your home: Air that passes through your ductwork is circulated through your entire home, and can easily pick up and carry irritants, dust, and more to every room in your house. Cleaning it out will help keep your entire home cleaner and smelling far nicer than it would otherwise.
- Help family members suffering from allergies or asthma: Airborne allergens and irritants like pet dander, pollen, microbes, and more can be carried throughout your ductwork, and can even start to build up inside it. It’s important to clear out these potential problems, especially if someone living in your home is dealing with allergies or asthma.
