Top 5 Benefits of Duct Cleaning

Posted on: June 28, 2022

Duct cleaning is an essential part of maintaining your home’s HVAC system. They play an important role as your ducts are responsible for directing the airflow throughout your home, working with your heating and cooling systems. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the various benefits of getting your air ducts clean.

1. Removes Unwanted Odors

As air blows through your vents, it eventually accumulates debris. When left unattended for long periods, this debris can build up to the point that it obstructs your duct’s airways, making it impossible for air to flow effectively. As a result, the humidity in your ducts will eventually begin to rise, leading to mold and mildew growth. This would then cause foul smells to fill your home whenever you use your HVAC system. A professional duct cleaning service removes any buildup to keep your home smelling fresh and clean.

2. Cleaner Home for Your Family

As mentioned above, the accumulation of debris can eventually lead to foul-smelling air circulating in your home. It can also mean blowing excessive dust in your home, too. If you’ve noticed your home getting unusually dusty quicker than ever, it’s a good indication that there’s significant dust buildup in your ducts being blown into your home whenever you use your HVAC system. A professional air duct cleaning service would remove this dust altogether, creating a cleaner living environment for you and your loved ones.

3. Improves Indoor Air Quality

Apart from dust, air ducts are the perfect place for other harmful airborne particles ⁠— like pathogens, pet dander, and pollen ⁠— to travel through and enter your home. These can trigger allergies or respiratory problems, especially for those with asthma, allergies, and other pre-existing conditions. Routine air duct cleaning helps keep your air safe and clean to breathe, improving your home’s indoor air quality.

4. Optimize Airflow Efficiency

Restricted airflow in your ducts forces your HVAC system to work hard to heat or cool your home. Over time, this will cause your energy bills to rise steadily. Restricted airflow will also put extra wear and tear on your HVAC system, making it need frequent repairs and shortening its life span. Periodic duct cleaning services allow your HVAC to work as efficiently as possible by optimizing airflow efficiency when being used.

5. Longer Unit Life Span

If your ducts are dirty or clogged, your unit will have to run longer and harder to keep your living area comfortable. Working overtime causes more wear and tear on your system, leading to more repeated breakdowns. As a result, your system could fail due to an overburdened motor or compressor.  This strain on your unit could require more frequent repairs or possibly a premature system replacement. However, routinely cleaning your air ducts will extend the life span of your unit and will limit the number of repairs or emergency service calls you’ll have to make.
