The Power of AC Duct Cleaning for Indoor Air and AC Performance

duct-being-cleanedIf you’re anything like the average homeowner, you probably don’t think about your ductwork very often, unless you have a major problem with it—like it has a huge hole that’s allowing cooled air to escape into your attic rather than making it into your living space.

For the most part, ducts are hidden from sight, traveling through spaces between walls and beneath crawlspaces. Exposed ducts are rare in homes, and even then you wouldn’t notice anything about the inside of them.

The fact of the matter is, the inside of your ductwork can be quite dirty! Think about that—ductwork is responsible for transferring conditioned air from your HVAC system into your home—so if the interior of that ductwork has dirt and dust inside of it, then that dirt and dust is going to enter your home!

“How Did My Ducts Get That Dirty, Anyway?”

You know how dust settles on the surface of your home? Well, dust and various airborne particles also get sucked into the ventilation system.

Did you know that a six-room home can circulate up to 40 pounds of dust annually?!

This is not only dust, but also dander, lint, and more. They settle on the inner duct walls and start to build up. And the more build-up on the walls of your ducts, the faster it will increase as more particles get trapped.

Improve AC Performance and Indoor Air Quality with Professional Duct Cleaning!

You do not want your air ducts to get clogged up with too much dust and debris for the same reason you don’t want your HVAC system’s air filter to get too clogged up—the HVAC system at that point simply can’t perform as effectively as it’s meant to when it has these obstructions.

The good news is, we have the solution in the form of our professional duct cleaning services, which:

  • Improve HVAC Efficiency: The debris inside your ductwork puts friction on the airflow coming into your home. This forces the blower of your HVAC system to work harder than its meant to, as restricted airflow means the system will struggle to reach the desired temperature on your thermostat and it will run for longer than it otherwise needs to. If you’ve noticed your cooling (or heating) bills rising far above what you’d expect for the time of the year, then it’s time to consider how efficiently the system is operating.
  • Prevent HVAC Damage: If this dust and debris is able to get inside the HVAC cabinet, it can damage motors and cause the condenser coil to freeze over, among other problems.
  • Provide a Cleaner, Fresher Home for You and Your Family: Having your ductwork professionally cleaned eliminates a reservoir of dust and other debris that you do not want wafting around your home. Not only does cleaning the ducts help your home stay clean, it removes irritating contaminants from the air, effectively improving your indoor air quality.
