While duct cleaning may not be a service you need to consider on an annual basis, there are several situations where it can be most beneficial. Over time dirt, debris and other contaminants can accumulate in your ducts, affecting system performance and reducing indoor air quality.
Common culprits include:
- Dust, dirt, pet dander and hair
- Dropping left behind after rodents or insects infiltrate your ducts
If you’ve experienced any of these issues in your household, duct cleaning is a viable option. To address such issues, a duct-cleaning professional will perform an in-depth cleaning of your system, including:
- The air handler housing
- Blower motors and housing
- Condensate drain pans
- All return registers and grilles
- Return ducts
By cleaning away dirt, debris and harmful contaminants from your ducts and HVAC components, you alleviate the strain that such items put on your heating and cooling system, and prevent these contaminants from being pulled into household circulation. Thus, proper duct cleaning can reduce the likelihood of indoor air quality issues and prevent unnecessary system damage, while simultaneously enhancing the performance of your system and saving you in monthly energy costs.
