Why Should You Have Your Air Ducts Clean?
“Why should I get my air ducts cleaned?” If this is something you’ve found yourself saying, then we’re glad to bring you 4 different reasons why you have your air ducts clean. A lot of people don’t even give their air ducts a second thought, but they can affect a lot more than people seem to think.
Here are 4 reasons why you should get your air ducts clean:
1 Improves indoor air quality:
Your air ducts are responsible for being the main entry way for air to enter into your home, therefore the air you breathe is affected by everything that is within your air ducts. That can be scary! Things like mold, allergens, and dust are just a few things that collect in your air ducts.

2 Increase indoor comfort:
With your air ducts clean, your HVAC system is able to work properly and keep rooms at their correct temperature. If you find that you’re having trouble keeping rooms at the correct temperature, no matter what you set your thermostat to, that could be a sign that you need your air ducts clean.
3 Decreases fire hazards:
With things like dust and allergens collecting in your air ducts, there’s a risk of it aiding in fire or even being the cause of a fire. By making sure your air ducts are clean, you can feel safe knowing there isn’t a risk within your air ducts that are in your homes walls and ceiling.
4 Prevents larger problems:
By keeping your air ducts clean, you are preventing the potential issue of the air ducts becoming clogged. If the air ducts are clogged, or even halfway clogged, this can cause your HVAC system to struggle and work harder. This could cause other issues with your HVAC system or make it have a shorter lifespan and break down sooner then it should.
If you’re not sure if you’re home needs your air ducts clean, we recommend regularly cleaning them every 1-2 years. By doing regular maintenance, whether it’s your air ducts or HVAC system, you are learning more about your home and helping to prevent larger issues from occurring.
We recommend that you do NOT attempt to clean your own air ducts. If not done properly, you can stir up and simply move dust, molds, and allergens throughout your home’s air, rather than removing it.
