The Benefits of Having Your Ducts Professionally Cleaned


Are you worried about your home’s indoor air quality? Have you noticed that your allergies are acting up, even when your home is meticulously dusted? Duct cleaning in Akron, OH is an effective way to enhance your home’s indoor air quality so that it’s providing a comfortable environment for your family. Here are a few of the benefits of having your ducts professionally cleaned.

Clean Ducts Make It Easier for You to Keep Your Entire Home Clean

When you have duct cleaning done for your house, your ducts are cleaned using a powerful device that removes dust, dirt, and other debris with the power of vacuum suction. Otherwise, when your heating and cooling system runs, it will release these contaminants back into your home. This recirculation means that you may have a fresh layer of dust even if you literally just dusted and vacuumed your home.

With clean ducts, you’ll likely notice that your home has less dirt and debris, allowing you to reduce the frequency of your regular cleaning.

You’ll Prolong the Lifespan of Your Home’s HVAC System

When your ductwork has an extensive build-up of dust, dirt, and grime, this restricts the flow of air from your air conditioner and furnace. Your HVAC system will have to work harder to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.

This puts extra stress on your HVAC’s internal components and adds wear and tear to the unit, causing you to prematurely need expensive repairs or even decreasing the expected lifespan of the HVAC system.

Your HVAC System Will Be More Energy Efficient

If your HVAC system is heating or cooling air that isn’t making it into your home due to restricted airflow, this will increase your energy bills. Since your HVAC system is most efficient when the airflow isn’t restricted, regular duct cleanings can actually help you lower your heating and cooling costs. With optimal airflow, your HVAC system will require less energy to maintain your home’s temperature.

Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality Will Improve

Clean ducts allow you to maximize your home’s indoor air quality. Duct cleaning removes debris and other items that can affect your home’s air, like bacteria, mold spores, pollen, dust mites, mildew, and pet dander. When these items aren’t removed, they are released back into your home whenever the HVAC system runs.

If someone in your home has allergies, asthma, or another respiratory condition, low air quality can seriously affect their ability to breathe. Even if a family member doesn’t have a condition that affects their breathing, you’ll be able to breathe better with cleaner air. Contaminated air will enter your nose and lungs, potentially causing congestion, sneezing, and coughing.

Your Home Will Smell Better

If you notice that your home smells musty, mildewy, or unpleasant, this may be caused by dirty ductwork. Many of the previously mentioned contaminants can trap odors that make your home smell bad.
