When it comes to keeping your home maintained, it’s important to remember to include air duct maintenance in your fall-cleaning list. Maintaining clean air ducts is an often overlooked task that plays a crucial role in your health, your energy bills, and even the safety of your home. At Nevada Pure Air, we recommend that every homeowner has their air ducts inspected and cleaned at least annually. There are many benefits of autumn air duct cleaning, but here are just a few of the main benefits that you should be aware of.
Why Cleaning Your Air Ducts Is Important
Keeping your air ducts cleaned is one of the best ways that you can keep your home cleaner, your bills lower, and your overall well being better.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
When your air ducts are dirty, the insides of the ducts, your air filters, and the air vents will fill up with dust, dirt, hair, pet dander, and so much more. These airborne contaminants get into the air that you breathe, so you want to minimize them as much as possible. In fact, if you want better air quality within your home, you should clean your air vents regularly, change your air filters about every 90 days, and have your air ducts cleaned out annually. This will help improve the air that you breathe in your home.
Prevents Dryer Fires
Apart from maintaining clean air quality in your home, cleaning out your air ducts can prevent fires. The most common kind of fires in homes are caused by dryer fires when the ducts are dirty. At Nevada Pure air, we also inspect and clean dryer vents and ducts to ensure that this does not happen to you.
Clean Air Running Through Your Home Is Good for Lung Health
If anyone in your home is vulnerable to respiratory conditions either because they have allergies, asthma, or are susceptible to the flu and COVID-19, then you don’t want to breathe in dirty air that is full of dust and dander.
Heating and Cooling Systems Run More Efficiently
When your air ducts are dirty, they can clog your air filters and air vents, causing your HVAC unit to run inefficiently. Your HVAC will need to work harder to heat and cool spaces, and this will drive your energy bill through the roof. In extreme cases, your HVAC unit can even break down when it has to work too hard for too long. It’s best to be proactive about your air ducts and contact your autumn air duct cleaning company as soon as you think you may need a cleaning.
