Benefits of Cleaning Air Ducts
A rule of thumb, if your air duct looks dirty, they probably are.” A certified HVAC company should inspect dirty air conditioners. Let us get into some more benefits of keeping that system clean.
Indoor Air Quality.
Indoor air quality is a main concern that all homeowners need to be aware of. Your heating and cooling system is the homes lungs. Being in our home naturally creates dust and dirt. If you have pets, a lot multiplies it. Using cleaning chemicals and kids coming home from school create the hostile environment that can cut air quality. Your heating and cooling system kicks on 4 to 8 times a day. That means its sucking dirty air in the filter is doing its best to clean it, it comes back out through the vents.
Just because your ducts are dirty, it does not mean you are breathing in unhealthy air. In the end, it could be a contributor to larger health issues.
On average 20 to 45 percent of the energy used for heating and cooling a home is wasted. Blockage in the HVAC system will cause it to work harder. This means the lifespan of the system will be shortened. A clean furnace filter is important; the air ducts will still get dirty through normal use. When a system is clean, it will not have to work as hard to keep your house the desired temperature. Less energy used will equate to a lower monthly energy bill.
