5 Ways a Maintenance Visit Will Help Your Family Stay Healthier This Spring

Plumbing Leaks

Could the indoor air quality in your home be making you and your family members feel sickly? Explore five ways HVAC maintenance can help.


How’s the indoor air quality in your home? Consider this: the air ducts in your home serve an essential purpose, allowing your HVAC system to circulate temperature-treated air throughout your home to keep you and your family comfortable all year long. But without proper maintenance, the ducts can become dirty and develop dust, mold, and fungus; as the air passes through the ductwork, it picks up the accumulation of junk and circulates it in the air you and your family members are breathing. Not a nice thought!


The good news is that regular HVAC maintenance will provide tune-ups and cleaning for your entire system, including the ducts. Here are the benefits you can expect when you schedule maintenance:

A Cleaner Living Space

When your ducts are dirty and your filter has passed its prime, the air and surfaces in your home will become dusty more quickly. You’ll notice ceiling fans, tables, and other surfaces accumulating dust and dirt. This is a sign your HVAC needs service as soon as possible.

Reduced Irritants & Allergens

While everyone will be irritated by dusty, dirty air flowing through your home, anyone with allergies will be absolutely miserable. With clean ductwork and a fresh filter, your system will effectively eliminate allergens and irritants from the air in your home.

Better Health

Good indoor air quality isn’t just about comfort; it’s also about your health. Fungus and mold accumulating in your ducts can be a serious hazard to your respiratory health. That’s why it’s best to schedule a ductwork inspection at least once a year.

Eliminate Unwanted Odors

Not only does your HVAC help to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, it also clears unpleasant odors from the air. If your ducts and filters are dirty, your system won’t be able to do its job correctly. Odors build up slowly and can be hard to notice. But after a professional cleaning, you’re sure to see (and smell) the difference.

Better Air-Flow & Efficiency

Dirty, clogged HVAC ducts prevent the air from flowing properly, reducing the efficiency of your system. After a thorough inspection and maintenance, you’ll probably notice a reduction in your monthly utility bills.

“We are truly grateful for everyone’s quick response to our flood in the main building here at St. Cyprian Church. The workers were tremendous in their search-and-find techniques to locate our buried sewer main line. The clean out was a difficult and tedious job but they stayed with it for hours. On Friday, business was as usual here and it would not have been if your company had not come out to the rescue. I’m sure the parishioners are happy to know that the bathrooms are available and that our problem has been eliminated. Be assured that your kindness and efficiency are appreciated. We are also grateful that you recognize our financial limitations. May our gracious God bless you all for your care.” –-St. Cyprian Staff
