The Value of Having Your Ducts Cleaned

Most Americans spend the majority of their lives indoors. That is a lot of time breathing in recirculated air. 

Over time, your ducts build-up debris, dust, and other allergens. When not cleaned, these pollutants begin to affect your indoor air quality. In fact, the EPA lists indoor air quality among the top potential health threats.

Routine servicing keeps your ductwork free of the following contaminants:

  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Pet dander
  • Bacteria and microbes
  • Mold and fungi

With your system free of outside pollutants, your loved ones will be healthier and breathe easier. Clean ducts offer the added benefit of improving the efficiency of your HVAC system. That means your energy bills will go down while your air quality goes up.

If you’re not sure whether you need duct cleaning, consider the following questions:

  • Is your home always dusty, no matter how often you clean?
  • Do you or a loved one suffer from allergies or breathing issues?
  • Have you recently renovated your home or office?
  • Has your energy bill increased unexpectedly?
  • Are you replacing your air filters more than usual?
  • Is there dust and debris in your return vent grills?
  • Have you been googling “Who does duct cleaning near me?”

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is time to make an appointment to get your ductwork cleaned.

How Often Should You Have Your Ductwork Cleaned?

We recommend you clean your ducts every three to five years. You should consider more frequent cleaning if the following factors are present:

  • There are one or more pets in the household
  • You or a family member smokes cigarettes
  • If a resident has asthma or severe allergies
  • After a renovation or remodeling project
  • If water damage or contamination occurs to your HVAC system or home

If you are not sure if it’s time for a ductwork cleaning, consult with a certified HVAC technician.

What to Expect from Air Duct Cleaning

Did you know that the average home produces up to forty pounds of dust each year? All that dust ends up in your ductwork.

During the cleaning process, your certified technician will insert a rotating brush into your ducts. A vacuum then sucks out all the dislodged dust, allergens, and debris and blows it into an outside receptacle. The system’s components, heating and cooling coils, vents, and registers are then cleaned. The result is a more efficient heating and air system and improved air quality.

What Type of Cleaners Do Technicians Use?

After performing a mechanical surface cleaning, the technician applies antimicrobial chemicals to the system’s surfaces. These chemicals include disinfectants, deodorizers, and sanitizers. They address any microbial contamination that is present and control odors. All substances are EPA-approved and registered with the agency. Only licensed and certified technicians should perform this work.

Does Ductwork Cleaning Really Result in Energy Savings?

Most heating and cooling systems waste almost half of the energy they use trying to adjust the climate in our home. That is because outside contaminants cause HVAC systems to work harder. The result is higher energy bills and a shortened life on your system.

While filters are helpful, they do not block all outside contaminants. Cleaning an HVAC system and ductwork takes some of the pressure off your equipment. The system doesn’t have to use as much energy, leading to energy savings.
