Why You Need Duct Cleaning

Your ducts are an important part of your home, helping to circulate conditioned air into every room. They can be easy to overlook, however, because they typically are located behind walls or in your attic.

When you can’t easily see the condition your ducts are in, you tend to neglect their maintenance. This means your ducts can end up dirty, damaged, and may even be in need of replacement. To ensure that your ducts remain in peak condition, regular cleaning is required.

Why Regular Cleaning & Checking is a Must

When ducts get dirty, contaminants will be pumped into your home by your HVAC system. This can result in poor indoor air quality, which is a health threat to all residents.

People with asthma and other respiratory ailments will be prone to more frequent attacks when the indoor air quality diminishes. Those with skin allergies may experience similar issues.

Cleaning your ducts on a regular basis can also lower your energy costs. When you don’t clean your ducts on a strict schedule and dirt accumulates within them, you will use more energy consumption because your HVAC must work harder to heat or cool your home. This equates to higher energy consumption and higher energy bills.

How Often Should Ducts Be Cleaned?

In order to keep the flow of air into your home at a steady stream and your indoor quality at an optimal level, you need to schedule duct cleaning at least once a year. You should boost that to twice per year if these factors exist:

  • You have pets that shed
  • You have family members that have chronic respiratory ailments
  • You have carpets and rugs
  • Your home is located in a densely populated area
  • Your ductwork and HVAC system is more than a decade old
