6 Reasons to Add Duct Cleaning to Your New Year’s Resolutions
The common theme for the new year is always, “new year, new me,” right? Well, how about a new year, clean air ducts! Getting your air ducts clean can not only benefit your family’s health, but it can also make your home feel more comfortable.
No matter how many years go by, you can make getting your air ducts cleaned a new tradition. Clean air ducts help you have a healthier work-from-home environment, a healthier environment for children, and other benefits. Keep reading for all of the great benefits you can receive by simply getting your air ducts cleaned.
1. Reduces Allergy Symptoms and Sickness
Over the holidays, you may have felt your home getting a little stuffy from having more guests over than usual. Or, maybe you had a real Christmas tree and decorations that contained small particles that can circulate through the air.
In the winter, trees, shoes, and other things that carry dirt and debris can clog your home’s air. When dirt accumulates in your home, it all circulates through your home’s ventilation system and reaches your air ducts. Getting your ducts cleaned can help reduce the number of allergens that are already flowing through the air, and particles that would otherwise buildup and add to the dirt.
2. Start the Year on the Right Foot
Even if you don’t have allergies, you can make getting your ducts cleaned a regularly scheduled appointment. Most HVAC companies offer coupons, and once you become a regular customer, they sometimes offer special discounts for recurring customers. This can benefit you by helping you save on future services once you’ve found a company you like.
3. Duct Cleaning Removes Mold
One thing we know you likely want to do in the new year is to walk inside your home to a breath of clean, fresh air. Getting the ducts cleaned can help remove toxic molds that cause odors in your home and eventually lead to sickness.
If you begin to visibly notice mold growth in your home, you should call a professional to remove the mold. You should also call an HVAC expert with emergency services to inspect your air ducts to ensure there’s no mold present. Clean air ducts help protect your lungs and throat from mold.
4. Clean Ducts Help Reduce Heating Costs
Getting your ducts cleaned removes dirt and dust from your HVAC system. When your HVAC system is backed up, it can prevent certain features from working properly like your heater — or air conditioner. Clean air ducts allow your system to function at its best, keeping it from overworking, and costing you more money in heating and cooling costs.
5. Remove Smells and Odors
If you appreciate pleasant aromas flowing through your home, while also keeping your air clean, you should consider calling a professional to clean your ducts. A good duct cleaning can clear the air for your home to smell its best and remove odors associated with mold growth, bacteria, and fungus that could be lingering in the air.
6. Improved Health
More people are working from home than ever before with advancements in technology and in company-employee relationships over the past couple of years. Workers are choosing to work from home, and while this is a great thing, if you don’t pay close attention to your home’s HVAC system and ducts, you could be jeopardizing your health.
At home, there’s no on-site technician to stay on top of your systems, so you will have to rely on your local HVAC technician to maintain it for you. If you ever find yourself feeling ill with no explanation, your illness could be related to your duct system. Get your ducts cleaned to help maintain good health and steer clear of illness.
