The air in your home circulates through the air ducts in your HVAC system several times per day, carrying all the dust and debris of everyday living with it. Your air filter can catch many of these pollutants, but gunk eventually will build up inside your ductwork and threaten the efficiency of your system. Cleaning your ductwork improves your indoor air quality and lowers the heating and cooling costs of your Baltimore, Maryland, home. Here are some of the benefits of duct cleaning.

Better Indoor Air Quality

Cleaning your ductwork gets rid of pollen, dust, dirt, mold, pet dander, and contaminants that can cause allergies, asthma, and other disorders. Pests, rodent droppings, dead insects, cobwebs, and more also can end up in your ductwork.

People with respiratory problems or autoimmune disorders should have their ducts cleaned once per year to prevent health troubles. Otherwise, you should have them cleaned every three to five years. You can check to see if your ducts need cleaning by removing a floor register and reaching into the duct with a clean cloth. If you can easily wipe away dirt or dust, it’s time to get a cleaning.

Fewer Repairs

Dust and debris in ductwork will eventually shorten the life of your heating and cooling system. Cleaning your ductwork regularly prevents expensive, inconvenient breakdowns by keeping contaminants from damaging the parts of your HVAC system. You should also change your air filter at least every three months and have your system inspected by a professional at least once per year.

Energy Savings

Duct cleaning can actually pay for itself over time in energy savings. It removes obstructions from ducts and increases the efficiency of your HVAC system. It can also get rid of warm or cool spots in your home caused by clogged ducts.
