When was the last time you had your home’s air ducts cleaned? Air ducts are one of those home maintenance needs that is often left forgotten. However, having air ducts cleaned can benefit the home, the household, and the health of the HVAC system. Steam Masters would like to share the many benefits of air duct cleaning and why you should never neglect your home’s air ducts.
Health Problems of Dirty Air Ducts
When cleaning the air duct system there are many advantages and not just for you but your home and the health of the HVAC system. The air duct system is the passageways that all of the cool and warm air travels through. When they are dirty there are a number of consequences. When the air ducts are full of dirt or other particles, contaminants fill the inside the home, and this affects the air. With every breath you take in, you are breathing in the dirt and other pollutants. Many people suffer from indoor allergies simply because their air ducts are dirty. For those with asthma or other respiratory problems, bad air quality can trigger attacks and infections. Neglecting the air greatly affects the health of those inside. One of the benefits of maintaining a clean air duct system is having clean air for you and your household.
Excessive Dust in a House
Another major benefit to you and the homeowner is a cleaner home. When your home is always dusty, even after you just cleaned the house, this is because of the air ducts. When the air ducts are full of dust, each time the HVAC runs a cycle the air blows through the air and into the home. When there is a lot of dust, your home will always maintain a fresh layer of dust. For those who want a cleaner home and enjoy a clean house for more than 30 minutes, you will greatly benefit from an air duct cleaning.
Dirty Air Ducts Make HVAC System Run Harder
The household isn’t the only one affected by dirty air ducts. The HVAC system is impacted as well. When the air ducts are dirty they are a continual source of dust and other particles in the air. When the HVAC sucks in the air inside the home it helps to capture all of the dust and particles in the air. However, all too often the air filters never get changed out and the dust builds up on the filters like a blanket. This blanket of bust restricts the air flow which causes stress on the HVAC system. During the summer months dirty air filters can cause the coils to ice up which result in overheating. For those who never clean their air ducts and frequently forget to change out the air filters, you will reduce the life of your HVAC system. For a longer lasting HVAC system, clean the air ducts and change out the filters regularly.
