Are Your Air Ducts Clean and Clear?

Apr 4, 2019

Did you know that over time dust, dirt, and allergens can build up in your home’s air ducts? Oftentimes homeowners remember to change their heating and cooling unit’s air filter but stop there. While an air filter helps minimize the amount of dust and dirt in the home’s air ducts, over time these things build up even with the best air filters. But how do you know when your ducts need to be cleaned? What are the benefits of having them cleaned? Let’s look at some reasons why regular cleaning is important.

Cleaner Air

One of the biggest benefits of regular duct cleaning is the impact it has on the air quality in your home. Over time dirt, dust, and other allergens collect in the air ducts and registers throughout your home. These particles become airborne and circulate throughout your home in the air you breathe. For many people this creates long term allergies and can have a negative impact on their health and quality of life. This is especially true of homes with animals because pet hair and dander also find their way into the air duct system, and in turn, into your lungs.

More Efficient Heating and Cooling

Having a build up of debris in the heating and cooling system can also impact the efficiency of your equipment. Your air conditioning unit will have to work harder pushing dirty air throughout the home than it would clean air, making it run harder and longer. Having blocked or limited ducts and receptors can not only cause long term health problems, it can have a major impact on your budget!

Equipment Longevity

In the same vein, constantly running equipment inefficiently can reduce its lifespan. Running a hvac unit overtime can wind up costing in energy bills in the short term, and major maintenance bills in the long term. By keeping your unit clean and properly maintained you can reduce your cost and extend the life of your unit.

If you’ve never had your air ducts cleaned, or can’t remember the last time they were cleaned, now is a great time to schedule an appointment! Spring brings flowers and sunshine, but it also brings pollen and dust which can worsen an already existing problem in your air ducts.

"WOW, WOW, WOW. I don't know what else to say. With two dogs and a 2 year old running around the house, our carpets and furniture need cleaning on a regular basis. It's nice to know that all I need to do is pick up the phone and I have no more worries. In this day and age, it is a very pleasant surprise to come across a company who will do what they say they will do when they say they will do it and with very little supervision. Kudos to Kent Clean!!! Thanks Larry!"
