At Ed’s Heating Cooling Plumbing Electric, we’re often asked, “What are the benefits of duct cleaning and isn’t this something I can do myself?” There are several benefits to having your duct work cleaned, and most consumers don’t have the ability to clean their ducts themselves. Let’s discuss a few of the benefits of having your air ducts cleaned and then we can discuss the cleaning process itself.
When you clean your home, you rarely think about cleaning your air ducts, they are the ultimate “out of sight, out of mind” area in the house. Because your ducts are not something you see or interact with everyday, they are often forgotten about. Over time, this can lead to a buildup in dust, cobwebs, debris, as well as the possibility of mold and fungi buildup. This can lead to allergy and respiratory problems for your family.
Besides better overall health, once your ducts have been cleaned, you should also notice that your HVAC system has improved. By not having to push all of that build-up through its system, your HVAC unit will run more efficiently. In addition to running more efficiently, the system will maintain this great performance for a longer period of time. A clean system can operate 30% more efficiently than a dirty one, allowing you to save 30% on your utility bills! Clean systems are also less likely to break down and will have a longer life span.
When you’re ready to have your ducts cleaned, it’s best to call a professional company like Ed’s Heating Cooling Plumbing Electric to handle the job. Most people can’t clean their vents nearly as well as a professional company because a professional company will have the tools and resources to reach every inch of the ventilation system in your home. While removing the vents and cleaning all the area you can find, remember that you’re only scratching the surface of your ventilation system. Your duct work runs through all of the walls, floors, and ceilings in your home, it would be impossible to clean all of this area with a consumer grade vacuum cleaner.
Having your duct work cleaned will improve your health and make your HVAC system run more efficiently.
