Is Duct Cleaning Worth It?

Duct Cleaning ServiceIf you want cleaner air inside your home, one of the best things you can do is to make sure your ductwork is clear of dirt and debris. Regular duct cleaning can provide you with several benefits, including increased heating and cooling system efficiency. At Northern’s One Hour Heating and Air, we provide affordable duct cleaning services to help you breathe easier at home.

Benefits of Duct Cleaning

As time goes by, allergens and contaminants can build up in your ductwork and move throughout your home. As they build up, they also result in clogs that can make your heating and cooling system have to work much harder than it should. The reasons that ducts can clog are numerous, including:

  • Smoking
  • Pets
  • Home cleanliness
  • Renovations

It is recommended that you have duct cleaning performed every three to five years to keep your air as healthy as possible. When you have a true professional provide this service, you can count on every component of your heating and cooling system to be addressed, including the coils, air handler and others. If this job is not properly performed, it can actually cause more problems than doing nothing. The reason is that it can lead to substantial heating and cooling system damage or kick up dangerous air particles.

By having your ducts cleaned you can realize significant energy savings. Dirty coils and blowers can have an extremely detrimental affect on your air conditioner and heater. The harder they have to work, the quicker they have to be replaced – and the higher your energy bills each month.
