Your air ducts play the vital role of conveying air between your HVAC system and your rooms. They can harbor dust, pet dander, and other allergens, making it important for you to do some maintenance to keep them clean. Let’s take a look at why it’s important to have duct cleaning after summer.
Heavy Summer A/C Use
Normal occupation of your home causes the generation of airborne contaminants such as dust, chemicals, and pollen. The contaminants are sucked into your HVAC system and re-circulated into your indoor air.
As your air conditioner works hard throughout the summer, there’s increased recirculation of your indoor air. This can cause contaminants to build up in your ductwork. Duct cleaning ensures your home’s air distribution system is sanitized, improving indoor air quality.
Reduce Fall Allergies
Fall usually comes with a new round of allergies. As the drier fall air takes the place of the summer humidity, some people start experiencing harsh sensations in their nostrils and frequent sneezing.
By having your ducts cleaned professionally, airborne particulates are removed so your family can breathe easier in the fall.
Enhance HVAC System Performance
The dust, dirt, and debris that build up within your duct system contaminate its component parts. Because of that, your HVAC system is forced to work harder and use more energy to move less air. That increases your energy bills.
A reputable HVAC company will use cleaning methods that eliminate all debris from your duct system as well as its component parts. This helps boost the performance and efficiency of your HVAC system and extend the life of your ductwork.
Prepare for Winter
Air exchange between the outdoors and indoors is usually little in the winter. Your air ducts basically recycle the same air and airborne particulates throughout the season. Duct cleaning removes the debris that has been accumulating in your ductwork during the year, helping you have cleaner breathing air in the winter.
