Benefits of Cleaning HVAC & Ducting

HVAC air ducts in your house serve an often under-valued role. Regardless of the season, air ducts help circulate air to-and-from the HVAC, but are often neglected. Throughout the course of a day, your air will be circulated multiple times through the HVAC and ducting, blowing into your home. 

Because HVAC and ducting is the channel through which we get our air, it only makes sense that it should be as clean as possible. Having your HVAC system and ducting inspected and cleaned helps purify the air you breathe, along with many other benefits.

Lowers Allergens & Airborne Irritants

If someone in your family suffers from bad allergies, asthma, or similar respiratory problems, you’ve probably seen the negative impact dirty air can have on their lives. Over the course of time, contaminants like pollen and mold can build up within the system and ducting, releasing particles into the air; impacting the way you and your family breathe. Cleaning air ducts and HVAC systems reduces these build-ups and makes air quality better for all those inside.

Reduces Dirt & Dust

Think of how often you vacuum and dust your home. Is it weekly? Monthly? Your air ducts are constantly filtering air and pushing it back into living environments. If dust and dirt collect quickly in your home, how much do you think is collecting in your air ducts and HVAC system? Properly cleaning your system reduces the amount of airborne dust, and helps in keeping the interior of your home cleaner.

Helps With Unpleasant Odors

If you’ve ever been inside a house with multiple animals, the odors can be quite powerful. When carpet has been changed and walls painted, pet dander and odors from pet waste can still leave behind stale, dirty air that circulates through the system. Along with pets, other factors can impact how your home smells. Tobacco use, paint fumes, cleaning products, and other things can create smells in your ducting system that stick around. A thorough HVAC cleaning will help alleviate these odors.

Removes Unwanted Pests

Because your HVAC and ducting is warm in winter and cold in the summer many critters and pests like to nest near, or even inside, your ductwork. Pests like rodents and insects can spread disease into your air or damage ducting. This damage could be costing you money in utilities. We regularly find damaged HVAC and ducting that is leaking cold or warm air into attics and under homes. This damage is usually caused by pests that need to be removed. Having HVAC systems inspected and cleaned will identify these problems and let you know what steps to take moving forward.

Regardless of the season, breathing clean air should always be a high priority. With regular inspection and cleaning, your HVAC system will provide cleaner, better air for you and your family.
