How’s the HVAC ductwork in your home? If that question left you scratching your head, you definitely need air duct cleaning on your to-do list this spring.
Most people forget to include ductwork cleaning on their spring to-do list. But if having a clean home and clean indoor air is important to you, it’s important to make it a priority. The good news is that you can hire local experts to get the job done right and at a price that doesn’t break the bank.
Check out these benefits of ductwork cleaning from the pros at Dependable Service:
REDUCE THE DUST
Dust accumulates in the air ducts. Some of it recirculates through your home when the HVAC system is working, and the air blows over the dust in the ducts and vents. Air filters catch some of it, but some will still end up in your house. Reduce the dust by cleaning your air ducts.
MINIMIZE ALLERGY AND ASTHMA SYMPTOMS
The more dust in your ductwork, the more it will circulate in your house. If you or anyone in your family has allergies or respiratory problems, all of that dust can lead to an increase in symptoms. This is especially true if you or a family member has asthma. Cleaning your air ducts helps to reduce these allergens and irritants.
IMPROVE HVAC EFFICIENCY
Dust accumulation can stress your HVAC system, causing it to work harder to bring your house to the desired temperature. If you notice your system running more than usual, dirty ductwork could be to blame.
HOW TO KNOW IF YOUR AIR DUCTS NEED CLEANING
Has your house been smelling less than fresh lately or have you seen spotting or residue on your vents? It could be your ducts. Mold and mildew can also develop inside the ducts and produce strange odors and spotting on vents. Pet hair and dander, household chemicals, smoke, and cooking odors can also make their way into your vents and ducts. If your house does not smell like it should, look to your ducts and then call on the pros you need to clean things up ASAP.
