Can Duct Cleaning Benefit My HVAC System?

Monday, October 20th, 2014

When it comes time to clean your home, you try to get every nook and cranny that you can. But some areas of the home are harder to reach than others, like the ductwork. In fact, while you may be able to reach the vents that lead to your home, large-scale duct cleaning is a job best left to the professionals.

Professional duct cleaning involves the use of specialized tools that can remove any stray particles that may otherwise infiltrate the air in your home. Specialists use heavy-duty vacuums to create negative pressure in the ducts, so that particles knock loose from the lining of the ductwork. They also use brushes and, in some cases, non-toxic liquid cleaning solutions, and they know the proper methods of cleaning to avoid any damage, even for flexible ductwork. This is important for both a healthy living space and, more surprisingly, for your HVAC system.

The Benefits of Professional Duct Cleaning

Of course, the most obvious benefit of professional duct cleaning is improved air quality. Your family members may inhale dust and debris that moves through the ductwork and into your home, causing respiratory problems or provoking the symptoms of asthma or allergies. But one of the more surprising benefits is what duct cleaning can do for your air conditioning and heating system.

  • Prevent HVAC Repair: When any part of your HVAC system is not in top shape, it can interfere with normal operation. A layer of dirt and dust in the ducts can create friction which keeps air from moving into your home with ease. This means your HVAC unit will work harder in an attempt to regulate the temperature. Over time, the extra strain on your system may cause parts to fail.
  • Extend the Life of Your Unit: As parts wear down, they may fail before their time is up. An HVAC system is a big investment and it is important to keep all of the components in top shape to give your unit some extra time—and even an extra month or two can make a huge difference for your budget.
  • Greater Efficiency: Finally, scheduling duct cleaning every year can help you save a little bit of money every month. Because your system may not take as long to cool or heat your home with cleaner ducts, you may have a more efficient system and save on your energy bills.

Experts recommend scheduling duct cleaning every year to keep pollutants out of your home. To speak with duct cleaning professionals in Ponte Vedra Beach, call Climate Masters today!
