What are the benefits of duct cleaning?
Having your ducts cleaned helps:
- Improve the air quality in your home.
- Ensure your furnace and air conditioner operate at maximum efficiency.
Dirty ventilation systems can also lead to clogged air conditioner coils and furnace filters as well as contaminated blower wheels that could result in a breakdown.
Who should get their ducts cleaned?
Duct cleaning is recommended every 3 – 5 years depending on your living conditions. You should consider having your ducts cleaned sooner if you’ve answered “yes” to any of the questions below:
Have you recently moved into a new home?
Have you recently completed home renovations?
Do you have family members with allergies or asthma?
Have you recently installed a new furnace or central air conditioner?
Do you have pets, young children, or several people living under one roof?
A thorough cleaning of air ducts includes cleaning the air handler and furnace fan to encourage air circulation. When was the last time you had your air ducts cleaned? Most people can’t even remember. Once every three to five years is what is suggested. If you have just moved into a new home or you have recently undergone a home renovation, it’s important to have them checked and cleaned out. Construction projects spread sawdust throughout the home and the dust will extend into the ductwork as well. Does anyone in your home smoke? Do you have pets living in the home? Pets shed fur and effective house cleaning practices can help to prevent it from spreading throughout the home and into the air. The best way to determine how often to clean your air ducts is to schedule an appointment.
