Even though your HVAC system has an air filter, dust and dirt can still get in the system. These particles eventually make their way and settle in your ductwork. As new air blows through the system, this dust and dirt can stir up and re-circulate through your home.
It’s why scheduling regular duct cleaning is so crucial for your HVAC system, your home, and your family. If you want to schedule duct cleaning in Red Lion, PA, we are the team you want to call. If you want to learn more about the benefits of duct cleaning, keep reading.
Indoor Air Quality
If you have noticed more dust on the surfaces around your home, you may not be imagining it. Dust can gather inside your ductwork and then blow back into your home with conditioned air. The problem is that if there is a problem allowing dust to get into your ductwork, more and more is collecting even as it blows out into your home. When you invest in duct cleaning, you can improve your indoor air quality since these particles will not be recirculating through your home.
When you’re breathing in the particles that are recirculating through your air, you’re more likely to get sick or have allergy symptoms. After all, it’s not just dust and dirt that recirculates. Bacteria and viruses can also recirculate and pose health risks to your family. Sure, you can’t help but bring in some germs from outside your home, but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with those germs recirculating again and again.
Did you know that dust and dirt inside your HVAC system can impact its energy efficiency? This happens in a couple of ways. First, the dust in your ductwork blows around and mixes with air that is being pushed to the rooms of your home. When this dust stirs up, it can interfere with the regular airflow and lead to less conditioned air actually reaching your home.
And when you have dust in your ductwork, there’s a greater chance that you have dust in other areas of your HVAC system as well. This dust can get in between gears and other components, clogging them up, so that they cannot work together as smoothly to condition air for your home. When you schedule a ductwork cleaning, you should also consider having our team look through your entire HVAC system and clean it out so you can start fresh with clean, well-lubricated parts.
When you schedule a ductwork cleaning, it’s an opportunity for our team to take a closer look at your ductwork as a whole.
