You know the ducts in your Venice, Florida, home are an important part of your AC system, keeping your home cool in these prolonged hot months. But like the blades on your ceiling fan, just because air is always moving across something doesn’t mean it doesn’t still attract dust and dirt. Keeping your air ducts clean with a regular duct cleaning service means your home gets improved air quality, fewer odors, and improved HVAC efficiency.
Better Air Quality with Duct Cleaning
Professional duct cleaning involves special hand-cleaning tools that loosen up any debris sitting in your ducts and collecting it all in a high-powered vacuum. A technician might also use some compressed air sources and a HEPA vacuum to remove dust and dirt in your ducts as well. What this means is that any stray dust or pollutants that had been in your ducts are gone, removing any potential triggers for allergies or even sinus congestion, making your home’s indoor air quality that much better.
Fewer Random Odors
If you’ve ever stepped inside your home after a long day away and wondered what that smell was, it might not be your trash can. Pet dander, bacterial growth, and even paint fumes can all contribute to stale or other off-putting smells as they get trapped in dust particles. Duct cleaning can remove the odors that have settled into your ducts and give you a fresher-smelling home.
Improved HVAC Efficiency
When you have a heavy buildup of dust, debris, and grime in your vents, your HVAC system has to work harder to push air through your ducts to cool you down. This means your system has to use more energy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Plus, debris in your ductwork can travel to the more sensitive parts of your unit and can damage delicate parts. Getting your ducts cleaned means your system can work more efficiently.
