Why You Should Get a Duct Cleaning After Summer

Why You Should Get a Duct Cleaning After SummerThe lull between cooling and heating season at summer’s end is the perfect time to give your ductwork some TLC. Scheduling a professional duct cleaning now can bring you some big benefits throughout the fall and while your home is closed up against the winter weather, like:

Ensuring Ample Airflow Through The HVAC System

If there’s a lot of debris and dust in your ductwork, it can contribute to damaging airflow restrictions within the HVAC system. Inadequate airflow can cause various ill effects like a decline in energy efficiency and your comfort. When the ducts are clean, you can rest easier knowing that you’ll have lots of warm air arriving at the registers, and your HVAC equipment can operate efficiently.

Identifying Any Potential Health Hazards

Ductwork is typically placed in unfinished spaces like the attic, basement and wall cavities, and since it’s seldom airtight, it’s easy for unhealthy contaminants to get into your home’s air supply. Along with all the components of household dust, there may be rodent droppings and nesting material, insect debris, insulation fibers and mold spores that can be activated by moisture in the ducts. When you have the ductwork cleaned, you’ll learn about any health hazards that require remediation so they can be addressed.

Boosting Your Indoor Air Quality

When excessive debris and dust is trapped in your ductwork, it’s getting recirculated with every cycle of the blower fan, so it’s bound to degrade your indoor air quality. Scheduling professional duct cleaning can end this cycle, and the improvement in air quality can make your home a healthier living environment, especially for anyone with allergies, asthma or other breathing problems.

Making Your Cleaning Routine Easier

Are you’re always vacuuming and dusting but you can’t seem to keep ahead of dust accumulations on your furniture, floors and other surfaces? When built-up debris is cleaned out of your ducts, you’ll find that there’s less being churned out by the blower, and you won’t have to clean up as often.
