Is Duct Cleaning Worth the Investment?

In Canada, our seasons provide us with a range of weather and outdoor conditions. Winters are cold and drive us to turn the heat up on most days, while summers can be sweltering hot, causing us to blast the air conditioning units (if we’re lucky to have them) or keep our windows and screens open in hopes that a breeze will blow through. Then we have the in-between seasons: spring and fall. April through June may melt away the snow, but these months expose snow mould and bring torrents of pollen our way.

 

All these factors place a heavy toll on our home air and duct systems. An air duct cleaning service can go a long way to rid your inside air of allergens and general debris, benefitting your health and your heating and cooling system at all once. If you ask us, duct cleaning is always worth the investment if it contributes to your health and comfort. In this post, we’ll tell you why.

 

The Benefits of Clean Air Ducts

Cleaning your dirty air ducts may seem like a low-priority task on your spring-cleaning list, but there are several worthwhile benefits of having them cleaned on a regular basis. Here are four advantageous factors of having your duct system cleaned.

 

Health Benefits

Most people are aware of the dangers of outdoor air pollution. If you live in a busy city or have experienced the haze from summer wildfires, you’ll have a sense of the concern. But did you know that the air quality inside your home can also be a hazard? Due to the trend in home buildings to provide air-tight buildings for greater efficiency, we’re also trapping more particles in our air systems.

If you’re sensitive to allergies, then you’ll have a strong sense of when it’s time to have your duct system cleaned. You’ll feel it in your nose and throat when a buildup of particles has settled into your airflow. You might start by changing your filter, but if that doesn’t work, the next step will be to call your local duct cleaning companies for quotes. Regular duct cleaning can have a large impact on the air quality you breathe at home.

 

Improve the Longevity of Your Furnace and AC

A buildup of debris and allergens is hard on your lungs, but it’s also hard on your furnace and air conditioning unit. It would help if you had your furnace and ductwork cleaned a minimum of every two years. But depending on where you live and your allergy sensitivity, you might want to increase the frequency. Keeping your heating and cooling system well maintained and clear of pollutants can increase the lifespan of the machine, saving you money.

Less Cleaning

Dirty air ducts mean those particles are pushed up through your vents every time you turn on the heat or cold air. Those particles then settle throughout your home, on your furniture, the wall portraits, and the floor. If you notice the amount of dust in your home building up more frequently, or the vacuum bag is filling up faster than normal, it might be time to have your ductwork cleaned.

 

Saving You Money

Cleaning your air ducts can help cut down the costs of your energy bill. The more particles that build up in your ducts, the less efficient your heating and cooling system will be. Hiring professional duct cleaners to vacuum allergens and other debris from your ductwork will help your furnace run more efficiently, saving you money on your monthly bills.
