Any home or business with central heating and air has a duct system throughout the building that carries warm or cool air. This system efficiently cools or heats your home or office to provide a comfortable environment for your family or employees. But what happens when dust, dirt, and other particles begin to build up in the ducts?
Why Duct Cleaning is Important
There are several things in your home or office that you may not think about until something goes wrong — duct cleaning is one of them. Everyone breathes and everyone pays their utility bill (we hope), so when there are health issues or the electric bill goes up, it can be hard to tell what the root problem is.
- Particles like dirt and even physical objects like vermin can get caught in the ducts, eventually causing the air to have limited flow through the system. This will cause your HVAC system to work harder to either cool or heat the space, leading to higher utility bills.
- With blocked air ducts and because your HVAC system is working harder, it can cause unnecessary wear and tear on the system. This will reduce the lifespan of the duct system, or could lead to additional repairs.
- If you struggle with allergens in your home or office, cleaning the ducts can have a positive effect on symptoms. No one wants to breathe dirty air that is coming out of the vents.
If you’re having to regularly switch out air filters, clean the vents, or if you have noticed a build up of dust around the registers, or any mold growth, these are signs it’s time to have your ducts cleaned. The experts at RHR Heating will quickly and efficiently clean the entire system to ensure that air is moving as it should and that the air you’re breathing is clean.
