Ever taken a flashlight and shined it into your ductwork? If you haven’t you might be surprised by what you’d find in there. Over time, dust and other debris can build up in the passageways, dirtying up your ductwork in the process. You might not think it’s such a big deal, but your ducts can become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria, which can blow into the house every time you use your heater or AC and if someone in your home has asthma or allergies, pollutants like these can be hard on them.
Replacing your filters on a regular basis only partially solves the problem.
It’s still possible for dust, pollen, and other tiny allergens to make their way into your vents. That’s why it’s important to have your ducts professionally cleaned out every now and again. How often, exactly? It depends. If someone in your home has a breathing issue, for instance, you might need a duct cleaning more often than somebody else would. And if your ductwork tends to clog up quickly, that could be a factor too.
But having clean air isn’t the only benefit that comes with a duct cleaning. It also turns out that clean ductwork can help drive energy costs down. With your air passages free of debris, your HVAC doesn’t need to work so hard to heat and cool your home. That means you can potentially save on utility bills while also prolonging the life of your heating and air conditioning. In general, HVAC systems connected to clean ducts tend to last longer, since they don’t have to work so hard. But what if you’re not sure you really need a cleaning?
