When you’re compiling your spring-cleaning list for your Ithaca, NY, home, you’ll probably make plans to clean windows, countertops, closets, and all sorts of other areas. You may not think about the need to have your ductwork professionally cleaned, but you should. There are several benefits associated with professional duct cleaning.
1. Improves Indoor Air Quality
The most obvious reason to invest in air duct cleaning is the fact that it improves indoor air quality. If you have anyone in your home who suffers from asthma or seasonal allergies, ensuring that your indoor air quality is as high as possible is even more important. Our professionals can remove the dust, dirt, pollen, and other airborne contaminants that can build up in your ducts before they blow into your home.
2. Improves HVAC Efficiency
When there’s dirt and debris inside your ductwork, the system has to work harder to push air into your home the way you need it to. When your system starts working harder, it can’t operate as efficiently as it should. Clean ductwork and improved HVAC efficiency result in lower monthly utility bills.
3. Improves Comfort
When temperatures outside start rising with the arrival of spring, you become even more dependent on your HVAC system to keep you comfortable. Dirty air ducts make it harder for the air to get into your home, which results in a less comfortable home.
4. Improves Your System’s Life Expectancy
While there will undoubtedly come a time when you have to replace your HVAC system, you probably want to do everything possible to delay that. Making sure that your ductwork receives regular professional cleaning can potentially add years to the life expectancy of your HVAC system since dirty ductwork causes the system to have to work harder.
