5 Reasons To Have Your Ducts Cleaned

Have you ever had the ducts in your HVAC system cleaned?

If not, don’t worry. You’re definitely not alone. In the grand scheme of things, duct cleaning is still relatively new to the HVAC industry. Very few companies in the Calhoun County area offer it as a service, and even fewer know what duct cleaning actually is.

So, in case you’re unaware, duct cleaning is simply the process of cleaning your air ducts, registers, grilles, diffusers, heating exchangers, coils, fans, and drain pans. When handled by a licensed professional like the ones at Mr. Dan’s, a good duct cleaning can have tremendous benefits for your home.

Whether you’ve been thinking of having it done, or are just now hearing about it, here are five reasons why duct cleaning can be a good choice for your home.

Cleaner Living Environment

Whatever settles in your HVAC system – be it dust, dirt, debris, dander, etc. – will eventually circulate out of the system and into your home, which then gets in your bedding, furniture, and carpet. A solid duct cleaning removes these particles and provides you with a cleaner, fresher living environment.

Improves Air Quality

From schools to plants to your home, federal scientists have labeled indoor air quality as one of the most important environmental problems in the country. Indoor air pollution can wreak havoc on you and your family without you even knowing it. Luckily, duct cleaning provides a solution to this issue. Removing pollutants from you system and keeping them from circulating in your home.

Reduces Irritants

Do you or your children struggle with allergies? Is someone in your house always sneezing? If so, a duct cleaning could help! In fact, one of the primary reasons people order duct cleaning services is to help their reoccurring allergies.

All the particles and pollutants that like to irritate our ears, nose, and throat – such as mold, mildew, dust, pet dander – love to lurk around in our air ducts. When your system kicks on, it sends those particles out into your home and straight into the air you breathe. So if you just can’t seem to kick that runny nose, a duct cleaning might do the trick!

Eliminates Smells & Odors

Odor-causing particles and sneak into your HVAC system and settle in, causing a stink throughout your entire house. Cleaning out the ducts will help eliminate those particles, reduces smalls and freshening up the air in your home.

Improves Efficiency

When your ductwork and registers are caked in dust and grime, your system has to work all the harder to cool your home. All that extra labor for your system is bad for the environment, your home, and your power bill. A duct cleaning can help your system run efficiently by removing any of the gunk that might be slowing it down.
