HVAC systems have brought American homes numerous benefits in recent decades. There have been excellent advances made, increasing the efficiency of central air conditioners and other types of cooling and heating systems. That’s not to say though, that these systems come without problems.
Since HVAC systems are intricate and complex machines with snakes of ductwork making their way through your home, they do serve as a sort of collection point for a variety of contaminants that can have a negative impact on your health. As such, occasional air duct cleaning services are essential.
However, we understand your hesitation to invest in a service you may not think is necessary. Therefore, we’ve shared our answers to some commonly asked questions about this service below, to help you make an educated decision about when you should schedule duct cleaning.
How Will Duct Cleaning Benefit Me?
This is probably the most popular question. When the inside components of your HVAC system accumulate even the smallest amount of dirt and debris, it makes those sensitive pieces work even harder to do their jobs. Duct cleaning will help improve the efficiency of your HVAC system and give it a potentially longer lifespan.
How Often Should I Have Duct Cleaning Done?
The very general answer to this is every 2-5 years. The frequency of which you have this service done will depend on a few different factors. For instance if you have smokers in the household, pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander, or water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system, you may want to have this service done more often.
What Does Duct Cleaning Cost?
This yields another “it depends” answer. Factors that contribute to cost include the size of the HVAC system to be cleaned, how easy your system is to access, the climactic region you’re in (in this case humidity can play a factor), the level of contamination involved, and the type of duct material. The best way you can determine your price range is by giving our professionals a call.
