Why Air Duct Cleaning Is Crucial for Your HVAC System

If it’s been a while since you scheduled a duct cleaning appointment, now is a great time to do so. Or maybe you’ve never scheduled the service and you’re looking for a way to improve your indoor air quality. Air duct cleaning offers a wide variety of benefits, including helping to protect your HVAC system.

Give our team a call when you are ready to schedule maintenance in Phoenixville, PA. You can also keep reading to learn more about the ways that air duct cleaning can help your HVAC system operate more efficiently and enjoy a longer lifespan.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

When you invest in duct cleaning services, you elevate your indoor air quality. Here’s what happens: Despite the fact that your air filter is designed to capture dust and dirt to prevent it from getting into your HVAC system, inevitably some particles do get through. 

The dust and dirt that enters your HVAC system can wind up in the ductwork. This isn’t a huge deal at first, but over a period of years, dust buildup can get significant. This is compounded by the fact that ductwork can develop holes and have broken seals that also allow dust and dirt into the ducts. 

Eventually, these dust layers stir up when airflow passes through and blows back into your home. Even if you do a great job of vacuuming and wiping down surfaces, having dust constantly blowing out into your home may be too much to keep up with. As a result, you sacrifice indoor air quality as dust, allergens, and even viruses and bacteria that are trapped in these particles continue recirculating through your home. 

When you schedule a duct cleaning, we pressurize your ductwork and vacuum out all of those dust particles. If we find that your ductwork is particularly dirty, we can also sanitize the interior surfaces. It’s a service that we recommend you complete every three to five years.

Protect your HVAC system

Eliminating dust is also helping to protect your HVAC system. When there is a significant layer of dust stirring up and mixing in with clean airflow, the conditioned air will not be as streamlined when reaching your home. 

This can result in more heated or cooled air getting trapped inside your ductwork instead of making it all the way into your home. The indoor air temperature will not increase as much as it should during a heating or cooling cycle. Your HVAC system may stay on longer or turn on and off more frequently as it tries to meet your set temperature. 

This can cost you more on your energy bill because your HVAC system is working harder and staying on for longer periods of time. Duct cleaning is an investment that can help you save on your energy costs while also reducing wear and tear to your HVAC system.
