There are so many benefits to having clean air ducts. For one thing, the cleaner your air ducts, the less garbage you’re breathing in every day inside your home. Indoor air quality is incredibly important, and many Americans suffer from poor indoor air every day. In fact, many people have allergies and other chronic health conditions that they don’t even realize is a side effect of their indoor air!
Regular air duct cleaning comes with a host of financial rewards as well. Keep reading for more information on why cleaning your air ducts regularly is so important. If you don’t feel confident about cleaning your ducts yourself, no worries. Ambient Edge is here for you! Give us a call today at (888) 240-8283, and let’s get started.
The Benefits of Duct Cleaning
Without question, the most important benefit of regularly cleaning your air ducts is that you cut down on the amount of indoor air pollution in your home. If you or someone you live with suffers from allergies or respiratory issues, and you have not yet been diagnosed, it may be possibly related to your indoor air quality.
In addition to your own health, you can also prolong the health of your ducts by having them regularly cleaned.
Regularly cleaning your ducts can have significant improvements in the efficiency of your HVAC system. You may be thinking, how? They’re just ducts?
Think about it this way – the more dirt and debris that gather in your ducts, the more of it will end up getting sucked into the HVAC system when it runs. Not only is the HVAC system then distributing that dirty air throughout the house, but it can also clog your system, leading to costly repairs and possibly even a replacement.
Even if you do everything right and clean and replace your HVAC system’s filters when you’re supposed to, some particles are still going to squeeze through to your ductwork. By cleaning your ductwork, you prevent these particles from piling up to cause an even greater problem later on.
And, of course, the harder your system has to work, the less efficiently it runs. The sooner it wears out, the quicker it costs you money. Keeping your HVAC system and your ductwork clean is crucial to keeping them running as well as possible for as long as possible – and for keeping your money in your wallet, rather than continuously investing it in repairs to your HVAC system.
When you regularly clean your ductwork (every 3 to 5 years or so – sometimes sooner), you also conserve energy. Even better than cleaning your ductwork, though, is sealing it. On average, homeowners end up paying for 20 to 30 percent of conditioned air they don’t even use because, unbeknownst to them, it is seeping out of their leaky ducts.
While our team at Ambient Edge cleans your ductwork, we also inspect it and seal any cracks or holes we find. This is to help you save both money and energy in the long run.
When Do You Need to Clean Your Air Ducts?
As mentioned above, you should clean your air ducts every 3 to 5 years or so. This is the minimum that experts recommend, and you should really only come close to that 5-year number if no one in your house is ever really home. If you spend a lot of time at home, if you do a lot of cleaning and/or cooking, and especially if you or someone you live with is a smoker, then you want to have your air ducts cleaned even more frequently.
If you’re simply not sure how often is too often for you home, our licensed technicians at Ambient Edge can talk to you about what we would recommend insofar as a duct cleaning schedule tailored closer to your home and lifestyle.
