The ductwork in your home is an important part of your heating and cooling system. Regular duct cleaning will not only improve the air quality of your home, but will also help your furnace and air conditioner operate more efficiently. The extensive network of ducts makes it extremely difficult for a homeowner to clean. Your local heating and cooling professionals at Ernst Heating & Cooling can perform your duct cleaning service quickly and efficiently.
Benefits of Cleaning Your Ductwork
Your ductwork can accumulate dust and debris over time, just like other surfaces throughout your home. Whenever you enter your home or open a door, airborne contaminants from outside find their way in. Allergens, pet dander, pollen, even exhaust fumes from your garage, make it into your living area. When your furnace or air conditioner turns on, air flows through your ductwork system carrying with it all the airborne contaminants and debris that it picks up along the way.
Cleaning your ductwork on a regular basis has several benefits:
- Eliminates dust and other airborne particles
- Reduces the number of allergens in the air.
- Improves overall air quality
- Allows furnace and air conditioning units to operate more efficiently
- Reduces buildup in furnace and air conditioner filters
For people who have any type of upper respiratory health condition that affects their breathing, cleaning your ducts will remove many of the irritants that affect their health.
Duct Cleaning Services in Metro East, IL
Hiring a professional duct cleaning service to clean your ducts ensures that your entire system is thoroughly cleaned, including any vents and filters. While it is up to you to make sure your filters are changed on a monthly basis throughout the year, the HVAC tech will make sure the filter housing is cleaned and has no leaks.
Most HVAC manufacturers recommend cleaning your home’s ductwork at least every one to five years. Each home is different in terms of how much dust or debris is produced. People who have pets, severe allergies, smoke, or have children, should have their ductwork cleaned every one to two years. Basically, the more active your household, the less time there should be between duct cleanings. This ensures that your air quality remains as high as possible.
