To those North-easterners who dislike the cold and snow, winter is the season of hibernation. This means a season of staying cooped up inside breathing the same recirculated air, with your windows sealed shut. If you have allergies, then you know that your home’s air ducts and returns reach every area of your house. If the ducts are contaminated with dust, dirt, dander, or other unwanted debris, it’s only a matter of time before it spreads throughout the entire home. If you have not done so this year, it might be time to look at the benefits of cleaning your air ducts.
Why Clean Your Air Ducts
Having your air ducts cleaned reduces dust and allergens that would otherwise continue to circulate through your home. Anyone with respiratory ailments such as asthma, allergies, or a sensitivity to airborne particulates can benefit from the reduced exposure.
Notice any unwanted smells that never seem to go away? Your ducts may be the culprit. Smoke, tobacco smells, pet dander, or even an unwanted vermin commonly make their way into your ducts, causing unpleasant odors. Having your ducts professionally cleaned can reduce contaminants in your system than can spread these odors throughout your home.
Your home’s ducts, vents, and registers are a complex network designed to evenly circulate air throughout your home. A buildup of dust and dirt or even unknown debris could potentially cause a partially obstructed air flow. Better air flow means your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard, saving you money and energy.
