How Often Should I Clean My Air Ducts?
You should aim to clean your air ducts every three to five years, depending on how often you use your HVAC system. Generally, every five years is acceptable for moderate use. Your air ducts are often a neglected area of HVAC maintenance.
Many homeowners assume that since their air ducts are internal inside the home, there’s little that can get it dirty. This isn’t true at all. The air that you recycle throughout your home can be filled with dust and other contaminants that can worsen your ducts’ condition.
Dirty air ducts can lead to various problems such as:
- Allergies and bad indoor air quality
- Dirt and other contaminants can negatively impact the quality of your ducts
- Mold growth or other bacterial growth that can potentially cause health issues
While you shouldn’t expect the worst-case scenario out of lack of cleaning for your air ducts, why even take the risk? A thorough cleaning every so often will go a long way in ensuring the health of your HVAC system and the health of your family.
Main Benefits from Air Duct Cleaning
You can benefit significantly from getting a professional to clean your air ducts.
Have you been noticing any foul-smelling odors inside your house? Is it hard to locate the source precisely? The odors you smell may be coming from inside your air ducts. Cleaning them may help solve the issue.
Instead of resorting to using air fresheners to mask the smell, you should tackle it at the source instead. Many odors form due to things such as mold or even pests like roaches or rats. The dark and secluded nature of air ducts make them prime nesting grounds and can contribute to the bad smells in your home.
Improve AC Efficiency and Save Money
A build-up of dust, debris, and other contaminants inside your air ducts can cost you money by reducing its efficiency. When contaminants restrict airflow, you use more power to cool or heat your home. This can cost you thousands of dollars every year.
Cleaning services also ensure that your duct health is in good condition. Things like leaky ducts or broken seals can also be a considerable detriment to AC efficiency. Our professionals will double-check your ductwork while cleaning to ensure that nothing is broken or in need of maintenance.
Improve Overall Cleanliness of Your Home
Do you find that, no matter how much you sweep and clean, there is still dust constantly around your home? While dust can come from many different outside sources and generates naturally with pets and people around, you can reduce the amount of dust you have in your home by cleaning your air ducts.
Think about how much dust can recycle and accumulate in a given day within your home. As you use your AC, you are blasting that dust around your house. Cleaning out the dust collected in your ducts can help you reduce the need to clean and wipe around the house.
