Is Duct Cleaning Necessary?
Yes! You won’t need to have a professional air duct cleaning job done every year, but we recommend it every three to five years. In fact, if you have never had the ducts in your home cleaned before and you’ve lived in the same place for more than three years, we urge you to schedule the service sometime in the next few months.
The truth about ducts is they pick up plenty of debris. Enormous quantities of dust circulate through an HVAC system each year. For example, a six–person home circulates 40 lbs. of dust on average annually. Much of this dust and other particles (including lint, pet dander, and dust mites) can become lodged along the duct walls where it is difficult to remove. As this layer builds up, it places resistance against airflow and creates other problems for the HVAC system.
What Problems Do Dusty Air Ducts Cause?
Here’s a short list of some of the negative effects of letting ducts keep picking up dust, lint, etc.:
- Inefficient HVAC system: This is the big trouble with dirty ducts. The resistance against airflow forces the blower motor to work harder—and subsequently drain more power. As the dust builds up, it creates an unnecessary spike in utility bills.
- Damaged HVAC system: The extra strain placed on the blower fan can lead to a system failure. Many other components can suffer from damage due to an accumulation of particles. Keeping the ducts clean helps extend an HVAC’s system life.
- Poor air quality: Can you imagine 40 lbs. of dust trapped inside your house? You don’t want to breathe that—or any the other particles with no escape except into the air floating through the rooms. Cleaner ducts mean healthier air.
