There are many myths that surround the job of duct cleaning. That can make it difficult to determine whether your home in Jacksonville, Florida, needs this service. The duct cleaning process uses a high-pressure method of pushing and pulling air through the ducts to remove contaminants. Periodic duct cleaning can help you keep your home fresh and clean, eliminating many problems and hazards.
Better Indoor Air Quality
The primary purpose of duct cleaning is to remove irritants, allergens and dirt from your ducts. Your ducts cycle all the air in your home and deliver it throughout your living space. Everything that passes through that air has a chance to settle in the ducts. Your ductwork may harbor dust, dander, pollen, bacteria and more. Cleaning your ducts will help remove all these contaminants so you can enjoy healthier air throughout your home. Here are some specific air quality improvements duct cleaning can bring:
- Reduced allergy symptoms
- Improved asthma symptoms
- Better respiratory comfort
- A fresher smell in the home
Lower Energy Costs
When your ducts clog with a layer of dust and other irritants, it can be difficult for your HVAC system to push air through. The harder your system has to work to circulate air in the home, the more energy it’ll consume in the process. If airflow is significantly reduced due to dirty ducts, it may take your system longer to properly heat or cool the home. That can cause it to run longer than necessary.
With clean ducts, air will be able to pass smoothly and efficiently throughout your home. This will help:
- Eliminate hot and cold spots
- Reduce your system’s running time
- Lower your overall energy expenses
