Cleaning up now and then is a necessity, but did you know this also applies to your heating and air conditioning ducts?
When many families embark on their yearly spring cleaning, they address almost every part of their home — except the heating and air conditioning system! It’s easy to forget your HVAC ducts can get quite dirty over time, but keeping them clean can provide you with some important benefits. Read on to learn why a dirt-free system is well worth the effort.
KEEPING HVAC DUCTS CLEAN SAVES ENERGY
Even if you use air filters and clean them regularly, your vents and ducts will still get dirty over time as a result of regular, ongoing use. When contaminants and dirt build up in your ductwork, your HVAC system uses more energy to distribute the heated or cooled air. Not only does this extra work cause additional wear and tear, but it also leads to higher utility bills as the unit pulls more power to do the same job. Clean ducts translate to less energy needed to keep conditions at desirable temperatures.
CLEANER AIR CONDITIONING VENTS PROVIDE BETTER AIR QUALITY
Dirty ducts don’t automatically mean you’ll have unhealthy or dangerously poor air quality in your home, but they can be a problem for people with breathing conditions or allergies. When the HVAC system pulls in pollutants (which is unavoidable), those pollutants circulate multiple times a day. This leads to a surplus of contaminants in the vents and ductwork, which can have an impact on the quality of the indoor air you and your family breathe.
