Keeping up with home maintenance tasks is one of the not-so-fun aspects of being a homeowner. Things like painting, clearing leaves and mowing the lawn will always make their way to the to-do list. But there are some other maintenance items you should think about having a professional come handle to improve how your home is heated and cooled and the air you and your family are breathing in daily.
Here are the top 3 reasons to get your air ducts cleaned:
1. Cleaner Air
Cleaning the air ducts in your home is a pretty important service. Getting rid of dirt, dust and reducing possible mold caught in the system are just some of the benefits of having your home air ducts cleaned.
Have you ever taken off the canister and filter from your vacuum and noticed all of the debris trapped between the mesh? This same type of build-up can be happening inside of your home’s HVAC ducts.
2. Improved Air Flow
While breathing in dust can be bad for one’s health, there is also a greater risk of fires in your home from excess build-up in your air ducts. By performing routine cleanings to remove debris from the air ducts in your home, you will have better air flow throughout your home.
Think of the vacuum canister and filter we discussed earlier, the only way to improve how your vacuum works is to “unclog” the air passage.
Keeping up with regular maintenance of your air ducts is really the only way to ensure it is running optimally and that air is flowing optimally and there aren’t any leaks or cracks.
3. Reduced Energy Consumption
Another benefit to cleaning the HVAC ducts in your home is the ability to cut down on energy costs. And with rates rising at an alarming pace today, that alone can be huge push for getting the service done.
By cleaning the air ducts and relieving any built-up debris, you will relieve the strain on the HVAC system so it isn’t working too hard to keep your home cool or heated. Using less exertion also means less wear-and-tear, breakage and a lower bill at the end of the month.
