Benefits of Keeping Your Air Ducts Clean

If you care about breathing clean, healthy air, then it’s important to keep your ducts clean. Dirt and pollutants gather in your ducts and eventually find their way into your home when the heating or cooling system runs. Keeping your air ducts clean will not only improve indoor air quality but also limit dust buildup in your house and increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.

Increase Efficiency of the Heating and Cooling System

You may know that you need to change the air filter and have the internal components cleaned to keep your heating and cooling system operating efficiently. What you may not know is the ducts need to be kept clean to maintain efficiency too. If you haven’t had your ducts cleaned in three to five years, then they’re due for a cleaning.

Limit Dust Buildup in the Home

Have you ever wondered where the dust in your home comes from? One place that dust comes from is the heating and cooling system. When there are dust and dirt in the ducts, it blows into your house when the system runs. The dust gets into your bedding, floors, furniture, and other items.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

More than just dust enters your home when the ducts are dirty. Allergens, irritants, and pollutants get inside as the heating and cooling system runs. These contaminants build up inside the air ducts, so they need to be cleaned out every so often. Special equipment and a powerful vacuum are used to properly pull out the dirt and debris in your ducts without damaging the system.
