Have you ever had your air ducts professionally cleaned? If not, you may be wondering if it’s even necessary and why it’s such a big deal to have air ducts that aren’t clean. Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning is here to tell you why it’s a good idea to have your air ducts cleaned, which we recommend every four to six years, depending on your situation. Let’s talk about the five major benefits of professional air duct cleaning.
1. Removes Dust From Your Home
This benefit is probably the most obvious. In a typical six-room home, families can generate up to 40 pounds of dust each year! The impurities that are pulled into your HVAC system are recirculated five to seven times per day. Regular duct cleaning will help remove these contaminates and keep your air ducts clear of dust and debris.
2. Helps with Allergies & Other Symptoms
If you want some relief from your allergies and the associated coughing and sneezing, a regular air duct cleaning is a good start. If you have furry pets that live in your home, or even if there were furry pets in the home before you moved in, then air duct cleaning can make a big difference to your breathing ability.
3. Improves Air Quality
According to the EPA, the average American family spends 90% of their time indoors. Concentrations of some pollutants are often two to five times higher than outdoor concentrations. This problem is exacerbated in energy-efficient homes that are sealed without the drafts of fresh air found in older homes.
4. Prevents Mold From Sticking to the Ducts
Our source removal process means that we physically remove the contaminants from your air ducts. Some companies may spray or “glue” dust, dirt, and other contaminants to the surface of the air ducts, which is an ineffective process. Once we remove the contaminants we can even offer a complimentary sanitization of your ducts. It is highly effective in eliminating odor-causing microorganisms as well as those associated with mold, mildew, and bacterial growth.
5. Increases the Efficiency of Your HVAC System
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, between 25% and 40% of the energy used to heat or cool a home is wasted. Contaminants in the HVAC system cause it to work harder and may shorten the life of your equipment. A clean system means that it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain your desired temperature, and the decrease in energy used will save you money.
