Why Clean Your Home’s Air Ducts?

The truth is, over time your air ducts in your home get dirty, and the best way to ensure the comfort of your family is to get them cleaned periodically. Spring, (hello allergy season!) is a great time to get HVAC maintenance done. Here are Super Heat & Air’s top reasons to get your home’s air ducts cleaned this season:

Reasons to Have Air Ducts Cleaned

Normal accumulations of dust and dirt can occur over time in your air ducts, but there are other reasons that you might want to schedule a duct cleaning appointment including:

  • If you have pets
  • If you or anyone in your family has allergies or asthma
  • If someone smokes inside the home
  • If you have experienced water damage to your home or HVAC system
  • If you have been remodeling or renovating your home.

Some occupants will be more sensitive to contaminants in your home than others, especially asthma and allergy sufferers. Duct cleaning will help address any issues with indoor air quality making your home safe and comfortable for everyone.

Top Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning

If the registers coming from your HVAC system look dirty, then your ductwork probably needs to be cleaned! A dirty HVAC system should be inspected and cleaned by a reputable certified HVAC professional like the pros at Super Heat & Air.

Here are some of the top benefits of clean air ducts:

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Your HVAC system is essentially the lungs of your home, as the system takes in air and breathes it out. Everyday contaminants such as pet dander, dust, and other pollutants get pulled into the HVAC system and can be recirculated throughout your home five to seven times a day! Over time, this recirculation can cause a build-up of contaminants in your ductwork.

While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean that the air you breathe inside your home is unhealthy, they might be exacerbating respiratory health conditions or autoimmune disorders in your home’s inhabitants.

Increased Energy Savings

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25-40 percent of energy in your home used for heating and cooling is wasted. If there are any contaminants in the HVAC system, it will have to work harder to heat or cool your home and shorten its lifespan. Even if you change your air filters regularly, the HVAC system ducts will still get dirty with normal use.

When ductwork is clean, the HVAC system doesn’t have to work so hard to maintain your desired temperature, which means savings on energy costs for you!
