Why You Should Clean Your Ducts in the Fall

Do you know what is inside your ductwork?  Most people do not know the answer to that question.

WHY YOU SHOULD CLEAN YOUR DUCTS IN THE FALL

Most people do not think about having their ductwork cleaned during the fall, but this is the perfect time. Up to 40 lbs. of dust, pet dander, contaminants and other materials can collect in your ductwork throughout the year.  In addition, your air ducts can have mold and bacteria growing in them. 

Fall is a great time to get your ducts cleaned as the heating season is almost here.  See below for more information on the benefits to having your ductwork cleaned in the fall by the pros at Dependable Service:

Reduction in Dust

It’s amazing to think about how much dust can accumulate in your ducts throughout the year.  Actually, up to 40lbs a year can accumulate in your ductwork.  Some of the dust recirculates through your home when the HVAC system is working, and the air blows over the dust in the ducts and vents. Air filters will catch some of the dust, but some will still end up in your house. Reduce the dust in your house and ductwork by having them cleaned.

Help Reduce ALLERGY AND ASTHMA SYMPTOMS

WHY YOU SHOULD CLEAN YOUR DUCTS IN THE FALL

The more dust, pet dander, mold, and contaminates that are in your ductwork, the more there will be to circulate in your house. If you or anyone in your family has allergies or respiratory problems, all of that dust and contaminates can lead to an increase in symptoms. This can be especially true if you or a family member has fall allergies Cleaning your air ducts will help reduce the irritants floating in your house. 

IMPROVE HVAC EFFICIENCY

Dust and contaminate 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.  It is best to have ductwork checked by a professional to ensure your system is running properly.

customer review

“Senior technician, Joe Anderson, made plumbing repairs to an upstairs bathtub to seal leaks from flooding through kitchen ceiling downstairs. This has been an ongoing serious daily problem in this apartment since April 2015. Mr. Anderson was the first person to have a camera system with him to assess areas where water was accessing kitchen ceiling. He explained in detail what he did and what he found wrong. Water had been flowing from next door apartment whenever they used their shower for over a year now. Mr. Anderson stated he needed to get permission from apartment management office in order to proceed to correct issues in next door apartment. Management has not allowed that access yet. He also noted that a single shower curtain in the apartment next door was on the outside of that tub and felt that could be creating some of the flooding issues. Thank you Mr. Anderson for being my angel and making these repairs.” –- Lyda G.
