Every home with central air has ducts that need periodic maintenance. One of those maintenance items is duct cleaning. Duct cleaning uses special equipment to go throughout the home and clean all of the registers, ducts, grills and other components of your AC unit. Duct cleaning is extremely important for the following reasons:
- Reduce Allergens – Unfortunately, dust, pet hair/dander, mold, pollen, and bacteria can collect in your ductwork. Your breathing air passes by all of these potentially harmful contaminants and can cause allergies and even breathing issues in people with asthma.
- Cleaner Environment – Do you feel like you constantly have dust in your home? Whether you see it floating in the air or on surfaces throughout your home, it can be very frustrating to constantly be cleaning. Having duct cleaning done can help cut down on the amount of dust in your home and provide for a cleaner living environment.
- Better Energy Efficiency – When your ducts are clean, your A/C unit is able to push air throughout your home more easily. This helps your A/C unit work with ease and not have to work longer than necessary, which will help to reduce the amount you are paying each month to cool your home.
- Longer Lifespan – When your A/C unit can work freely without debris affecting its airflow, you will also have an A/C unit that isn’t having to work extra hard and therefore requiring extra repairs and maintenance. Keep your air conditioner working for longer with regular duct cleaning.
