Why Do Air Ducts Get Dirty in the First Place?
The air in your home is constantly being passed through the furnace or air handler by the blower anytime it is running. The dirt and dust in the air eventually gathers in the duct system. Each time the blower cycles it picks up some of that dirt and debris and sends it through your furnace or air handler.
Is It Necessary to Have My Air Ducts Clean?
The most important answer to this question is that when you have your air ducts cleaned there will be less dirt and debris in your system. If there is less dirt and debris in the system then there will be less dirt and debris spread throughout the ductworks in your home and into your living space. The main reason to remove the dirt and debris that clog the ductwork in a home is to keep it from getting into your filters, blower wheel, heat exchanger and the evaporator coil. When the components of your furnace have excess gunk on them it puts an unneeded strain on the mechanical workings making your system struggle to operate. The slightest amount of dirt and debris build up on a coil or secondary heat exchanger can cause a decrease in your home’s heating and cooling systems performance and efficiency.
How Often Should Air Ducts Be Cleaned?
This is really a choice of the homeowner. We have customers that have duct cleaning service performed every two years while others wait 5-10 years between services. The most important time to have your air ducts cleaned is if you have not had them cleaned in several years, just moved into a new home, have allergies, or see a constant build up of dust throughout your home.
