When you are a homeowner, it seems that there are always more things to do in order to properly maintain your house. This is why the smaller tasks that don’t seem to be as important are often brushed aside and forgotten. Often one of these tasks is having the air ducts in your home cleaned. While we hear from plenty of homeowners all the time that they don’t believe that air duct cleaning is that important, as the experts, we would beg to differ. Continue reading this post to learn why we think that air duct cleaning should be a priority for all homeowners.
Is It Worth It To Have Your Ducts Cleaned?
Air duct cleaning is something that does not have to be done that often. In fact, it is recommended that your ducts be cleaned as few as once every four to six years. This, of course, will vary depending on several different factors such as the size of your home, how many people live in the house, whether or not you have pets, how often you cook and how much you use your ventilation system. Most often, however, we suggest that people have their ducts cleaned when the following scenarios occur:
You move into a new home
When you move into a new house, you have no way of knowing what is in your ducts. If the previous tenants smoked indoors, had pets, were just generally dirty people, chances are you will want to have the ducts cleaned to be safe. This is also true if you built your home as there is likely to be debris in the ducts from all of the construction.
You notice an excessive amount of dust in your home
If you notice that you suddenly are having to dust more often than you normally would, this could be a sign that your ducts are full of dirt and debris which is being scattered throughout your house each time the AC kicks on.
You have mold removed from your home
When there is the existence of mold in your home, chances are it is in your ducts as well. When you have your mold removed, be sure the ducts are cleaned out too.
What Are The Benefits Of Having Your Ducts Cleaned?
For the most part, having your air ducts cleaned out will benefit you and your family in a number of ways. The main way being that you will be living in a healthier environment day in and day out. Duct cleaning contributes to improved indoor air quality, improved airflow, and a better smelling home. Additionally, you will likely lower your energy bills and extend the life of your HVAC unit by having your ducts cleaned.
