Whenever you have time to thoroughly clean your home, you usually try to get the portions that are hidden from view. You check under the bed, vacuum beneath the cushions, or dust the tops of shelves—anything you can do to keep every part of your home sparkling, even if there’s no one around to see it. So why would you neglect to clean the ductwork?
Your ductwork may be home to the same dust and particles that settle on top of your bookshelf. And the fans in your system can blow these pollutants into your home, which is why it’s important to schedule professional duct cleaning services regularly (and in most homes, this means every other year). Here are some of the ways that scheduling regular air duct cleaning in Newton may help you.
- Reduce Allergens: Your ducts may be home to a lot of dust, which could build up in your home and become a nuisance. More importantly, it could house mold, bacteria, mold spores, pollen, pet dander, and other allergens which may get into the inside air and activate respiratory problems in some of the members of your household.
- Restore Efficiency to Your HVAC System: The state of your ductwork is a large factor in determining the efficiency of your air conditioning system. If there is too much dust or debris lining the ducts, it may create fiction, inhibiting the necessary airflow. This could cause your AC to work harder than it should, resulting in a little more spending every month.
- Prevent Repairs: Duct cleaning can also prevent AC and heating repairs. Dust and debris can make its way into the indoor evaporator unit of your air conditioner, causing problems with the effectiveness of the coil or the blower fan. And a visual inspection of the ducts can alert you to any leaks that need repairs right away.
It’s important to hire a professional for this job, who has the tools to reach past the vents and into the ductwork, gently scrubbing the insides of ducts without causing any damage.
