If you have a ceiling fan that you don’t clean for months or even years, it is easy to see just how much dust and debris can end up collecting on it. With that in mind, consider what can happen when the exact same air supply is passed through your ductwork over and over and over again.
We get it if you probably don’t want to see the results. But this is a really good way to understand just how dirty your ductwork can get over the years. But, unlike that ceiling fan, your ducts aren’t exactly easy to clean. That’s why it is a good idea to consider duct cleaning that is provided by an HVAC technician.
In this blog post, we’ll explain why duct cleaning in Royersford, PA is so beneficial in so many ways.
How Your Ducts Get Dirty
Your ducts handle airflow that is repeatedly cycled through your home. When you turn on either of your comfort systems, the air that they cool or heat is pushed through your ductwork in order to get into the rooms of your home. However, this means that the large majority of the debris in your home’s air can end up going through your ductwork and may end up collecting there. Over a matter of years, this collection of debris starts to add up and cause problems like increased respiratory trouble and weakened airflow.
“Wait What About the Air Filter?”
Many people think that the air filter that comes with their HVAC system is meant to address the majority of your air contaminants. While these filters don’t hurt, and they do help to remove some debris from the air, their main purpose is to keep your AC system itself clean, rather than improving your indoor air quality.
How Duct Cleaning Resolves the Problem
If you have started to suspect that your ductwork needs some serious help, then it may be beneficial to schedule an appointment for duct cleaning to address the problem.
A professional technician will arrive at your home with the necessary tools to get your ducts fully cleaned out. This should include specialty vacuums and brushes along with ground covering to collect any debris that they drag out of your ducts in order to keep your home clean. Getting a professional to do this job ensures both that it is done correctly and that the job is accomplished without causing damage to your ductwork. It also means that you’ll enjoy the full benefits of this service which can include:
- Clean, strong airflow: Less debris in your ducts means that temperature-controlled air passes through them unhindered.
- Reduced respiratory and allergy problems: When debris is removed from the ducts, it won’t be cycled through the home repeatedly which prevents it from aggravating your respiratory system.
- Improved indoor air quality: Removing debris that is piled up in your ductwork will help your indoor air quality too which, in turn, helps your HVAC performance.
