Now that the fall season is here in Monument, CO, you can bet that your system will need a good duct cleaning. After a long, hard summer of AC use, duct and vent cleaning will help your home stay clear of dust and other particles that come in through the ducts and float in the air. In addition, keeping your airways clear of particles will help you save money.
Why You Need Duct Cleaning
If you see a layer of dust forming over your vents, it’s a sign that the condition of your ducts is declining. Over time, the dirt, debris, and pollution brought into your home through your ducts will begin to cause issues. Years of not having your ducts cleaned is not only visibly bad, but it can be harmful to those in your home who have breathing issues or allergies. That’s why it’s essential that a technician clears your ducts of the allergens and other particles that would otherwise circulate through your home.
When the particles begin to build up in your filter and ducts, it can create a situation where the air coming through has fewer and smaller pathways. So, in order to compensate for the constricted system, your air conditioner will have to work harder, leading to more energy use and higher utility bills. Having your ducts cleaned once in a while will do wonders to maintain your efficiency.
There are a few special cases when it comes to ductwork cleaning that requires more than the traditional cleaning every three to five years.
- Lack of cooling
- Decreasing air quality
If you neglect to take care of the issues listed above in a timely manner, it could result in health complications for the people in your home. While it might not be immediately harmful to breathe in air that’s polluted in the ways that dirty ducts could cause, prolonged exposure to this air could cause lasting harmful effects. That’s why it’s so essential that a trained technician clean your vents and ducts regularly throughout the years. In addition, constricted ducts could create a domino effect of issues in your system that would increase the wear and tear and potentially lead to a sooner replacement.
