Keeping the air ducts in your home should be one of your top priorities. Air ducts are responsible for circulating the air from your HVAC system throughout your home. The air ducts circulate the air multiple times a day, which means you can have excess dust and other issues flowing through the home if the air ducts are not cleaned. Keeping the air ducts as clean as possible reduces the risk of allergies, breathing ailments, fire hazards, and more. HVAC Utah provides air duct cleaning services throughout the Wasatch Front. Our experts will remove contamination within the ductwork including the supply and return air ducts, the registers, and diffusers. We also provide additional services like dryer vent cleaning, which should be done annually to reduce the risk of fires in the home. Here are some reasons why your home will benefit from a duct cleaning service.
Keeping the Air Clean
Here is an example of a job we recently completed. Take a look at the amount of dust we pulled out of the HVAC system! This is quite common for most of the homes we have serviced, and there have some some homes with rodents, insects, and other pests causing serious health risks in the home.
Duct cleaning does provide a cleaner living environment for everyone in the home. Keeping dust from circulating through the home prevents it from not only irritating your lungs, eyes, nose, and more, it limits the amount of dust that falls on the floors, furniture, and bedding. Duct cleaning does help to reduce the amount of labor required for maintaining a clean homes thanks to dust reduction.
Another major reason to clean your air ducts is to limit the amount of contaminants and micro-organisms that are circulated in the home. If you have people with asthma or allergies, the air ducts can easily cause their existing health problem to worsen. Pet dander, bacteria, pollen, mold spores, and mildew are just a few of the common contaminants we find in the air duct system.
We recommend periodic duct cleaning services to improve the living environment in your home. If the ducts continue to have pet dander, dust, and other ailments in them, they will continue making the home miserable for people living with respiratory issues and allergies.
What’s That Smell?
Do you have a strange smell in your home that you just cannot seem to pinpoint? Even with a thorough cleaning of your home, you may still notice an odor. When you have an odd smell, air duct cleaning may be the solution. Why? We have found dead rodents and pests in air duct systems, and mold spores! There are quite a few contaminants that will come into the home through the HVAC system, and air filters can only do so much to limit the amount of dirt, dust, and other things from getting into the ductwork. Odor coming from the ductwork needs to be cleaned and sanitized in order to remove harmful bacteria. A detailed cleaning of your ducts will leave your home smelling fresher.
Improve Air Flow Efficiency and Reduce HVAC Wear and Tear
A clean ductwork system means the HVAC system will not need to work as hard to circulate air in the home. Keeping the ducts clean limits the amount os stress placed on the motors or the air conditioner and the furnace, which aids in reducing wear and tear on your HVAC system. When there is heavy build-up in the ducts, it restricts the air flow, making your system work harder to maintain the desired comfort level in the home. A clean system won’t increase the utility bill the way a dirty system does!
Decrease Fire Hazards
When there is an excessive amount of dust in the ducts, it increases the risk of fires in the home. Dirt, dust, and other build up can easily ignite when exposed to heat. Unfortunately for many homeowners, the fire can happen quickly and people can be injured due to a fire from dirty air ducts. Commercial buildings are at a high risk for fires as well with the amount of ductwork and HVAC systems required to effectively heat and cool a building. Annual duct cleaning can limit the risk of fires drastically by keeping it clear of lint that is easy kindling for fires.
