How Often Should You Schedule Home Ductwork Cleaning?

When it comes to home maintenance, there are some simple yet effective tasks that you may not think of right away. One of those is having your home ductwork cleaned. In this blog, the experts at ComfortAire Heating Cooling Fireplaces explain why scheduling a ductwork cleaning can benefit both your comfort and your family’s health. Discover more below, then give us a call to make an appointment.

Why Is Ductwork Cleaning So Important?

The air ducts in your home connect with your HVAC system to distribute warm and cool air throughout. But they can also be a trap for pollutants like dust, debris, and dander. This is a concern, as these contaminants trapped in your air ducts are constantly being recirculated throughout your home. According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, recirculation occurs between five to seven times per day on average.

Benefits of Ductwork Cleaning

1. Improved airflow

When your ducts are free of built-up dust and debris, your HVAC systems can more easily push air through them. This results in warmer or cooler air, depending on what setting you’re using. You won’t have to wait as long for your air to warm up or cool down.

2. Reduces system wear and tear

With regular duct cleanings, your HVAC systems won’t have to work so hard to push air past pollutant buildups. This will result in less wear and tear on your furnace and air conditioner as the years go on. This means fewer repairs as well.

3. Fresher air

When dust and dander build up in your home’s ductwork, it can easily be recirculated throughout your home. If not removed, this can negatively affect anyone in your home who suffers from allergies and asthma. Cleaning out your ductwork provides a fresh start for your home air—and even removes unpleasant smells or odors if they exist.

4. Cleaner home

With less dust and dirt circulating through your air, you’ll find your home will stay cleaner in general. There’ll be less dust and dirt collecting on surfaces, floors, and furniture. This means less housework for you, too!

How Often Should You Have Your Home Ductwork Cleaned?
