Why you should get your air ducts cleaned
Your air ducts are essential to keeping your home at a consistent, cool temperature. Simply put, they’re how cool air gets from one part of your house to the other – and when they’re not working properly, it can not only cause a great deal of discomfort, but can also cost you a lot of money.
If you were to sit us down and ask us about the one service our customers don’t take advantage of often enough but should – it would be duct cleaning. It can make a significant difference in the overall quality of life in your home – from the quality of the air you breathe, to your home’s comfort and financial benefits.
Here are some reasons why you should consider getting your air ducts cleaned as soon as possible.
Keeps your house cleaner
Sometimes it feels like you can never keep up with the dusting in your home. Dust on Sunday and by next Saturday, there it is – that think film of gray dust – right back in the same place where you cleaned it last weekend. In addition to just being a pain to clean up, dust is also a sign that you might have poor air quality in your home. If you’re noticing a considerable amount of dust, then it could be because your air ducts aren’t effectively able to channel air through your home. Getting your ducts clean will help alleviate the issue almost in its entirety and make it a more comfortable place to be.
If you live in a home with a lot of dust and particles in the air – and you suffer from asthma or have allergies – it can be completely and totally miserable. Duct cleaning cuts down on the dust, bacteria and other debris that can build up in air ducts and adversely affect your sinuses. Sometimes it’s not always as easy to see how gummed up your ducts are until you see it for yourself and an unattended duct can become a huge issue.
A nicer smelling home
Frankly, you shouldn’t ever smell foul odors in your home. The problem is that sometimes we do and it’s not always something we can control. Sometimes it’s a mouse getting stuck where it shouldn’t. Sometimes it’s cleaning agents, fumes, sometimes eve smoke. A detailed cleaning of your air ducts can remove all of this and remove that stale odor from your home and replace it with fresh, clean air.
Savings, savings, savings
If an air duct is clogged or the filter is bad – it becomes more difficult for your home air conditioner to work properly. It has to use more energy to do less work and what that means at the end of every month is a costly utility bill. Even when things are seemingly fine, customers will often be surprised to see a nicer number at the end of their utility bill a month or two after getting their air ducts cleaned.
At the end of the day, getting your ducts cleaned is worth it. Not only will you save money in the long run, but you’ll also notice a significant difference in the overall quality of life in your home – particularly due to the increase in overall air quality.
