HVAC Efficiency

Your HVAC system will have more efficiency when it’s clean and free of debris. When dirt, dust, and other particles build up in your home’s ductwork, they will continue to circulate throughout the system, ending up getting dirt into other parts of your AC unit.

How Air Duct Cleaning Increase HVAC Efficiency

Your HVAC system, whether heating or cooling, relies on a series of ducts to carry air throughout your home. It creates a cycle of moving air, and to ensure it can do its job effectively, proper air flow is absolutely critical. When too much dust, debris, and other mess accumulates in the ducts, it can interfere with this healthy air flow, impeding the HVAC system’s ability to get the job done.

Your HVAC system has to work harder, thus using more energy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. So, in a simple answer, yes, duct cleaning can help a lot with efficiency—as long as you actually need it!

If you haven’t had a duct cleaning in a while, or your home has been exposed to massive amounts of particulate debris, then you’ll almost certainly notice an improvement in comfort and efficiency.

Ways Clean Air Ducts Improve HVAC Systems

Improves Airflow Quality

As previously stated, air ducts are an important function of your HVAC system. Generally, it’s recommended that you annually receive a HVAC system maintenance check, but your air ducts are only suggested to be cleaned every 3 to 5 years. It’s likely that overtime your ductwork will accumulate dust and grime. This buildup can lead to your HVAC system working harder. As a result your home’s air flow quality lowers and causes your HVAC system to improperly and inefficiently work. In this case, a professional cleaning may be required to improve the running of your system.

Eliminates Mold

The development of condensation in your HVAC system can lead to the growth of mold in your air ducts. The growth of mold is a major concern that should be resolved. Mold buildup can cause respiratory and health problems to you and your family. The mold can also spread throughout your home and HVAC system.

If you find that mold is growing on or in your ductworks it is imperative that you get it professionally removed through an air duct cleaning. If you only suspect mold to be growing, call a professional to come and check. Make sure to have the specimen tested to ensure that it is indeed mold, before paying for a cleaning.

Cleans Infestation

If you have determined there is a rodent infestation in your air ducts, you’ll need to not only call an exterminator, but a professional service to clean your air ducts. Rodents may have left hair, feces, and other remnants that will require a professional cleaning to take place. Professionals may use both a vacuum and biocides to clean the remains left by the infestation. Additionally, the vermin may have caused damage to the ductwork that would need a repair on my HVAC System.

Reduces Allergens in the Air

Air ducts create the flow of air throughout a home by delivering and returning air to and from your HVAC system. This cycle of airflow may pass along allergens throughout your house. The buildup of dust, pollen, pet dander, and other allergens in your ductwork and circulating in your air can cause you to experience allergies. Or respiratory problems.
