Why Fall Is the Best Time to Clean Your Air Ducts

We have to admit… the ductwork in your HVAC system is seriously underrated! Not only does the ductwork work to deliver the air supply to different parts of your home, but the ductwork also helps your home achieve good indoor air quality. Because ductwork is such an integral part of your HVAC system, it’s important to clean your air ducts this fall before the winter arrives.

Clean Air Ducts = A Happy Home

Clean air ducts tout numerous benefits for both you and your home, so it’s crucial to clean your air ducts yourself or let a professional clean them every so often. Here are just a few of the benefits of clean air ducts:

  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: The average individual spends most of their time in the confinement of their home, and if you are one of them, you should make sure the air you’re breathing is fresh and clean! Over time, dust, dander and the like, accumulate throughout our homes and while our HVAC systems work to filter through the debris, they need a little help. You can do this by cleaning every now and then to avoid the dust buildup that can disperse through our home.
  • Increased Energy Savings: When your air ducts are dirty, your entire HVAC system has a hard time maintaining the temperature settings you apply. In return, more energy is used, meaning more of your hard-earned money is spent without getting much results. When your air ducts are cleaned, your HVAC system can work easier and uses less energy.
