If you are like many homeowners, you may only think about your ventilation system when there’s a problem with it. Even then, it’s likely you think of your AC unit before the ducts that circulate the cooled air. However, periodic attention to your ducts can improve the air quality of your home and help keep you consistently cool for much longer than AC repairs alone. Here are some reasons you should consider a professional cleaning for your air ducts:

  • Duct cleaning reduces allergens- Allergens such as pet dander, pollen, mold, and other particles can accumulate inside your home. The air in your ventilation system circulates through your home multiple times per day, and over time, your ducts can become saturated with airborne irritants. Those who suffer from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory problems are particularly sensitive to these allergens. Our professional duct cleanings at Air Assault Air Conditioning & Heating can help you reduce harmful airborne particles and maintain your family’s comfort and health.
  • Duct cleaning improves comfort- Allergens are not the only particles that can circulate through your vents. Even particles that are not directly harmful can still make your space dirty, unpleasant, or uncomfortable. One such particle is dust, which can range from a small, everyday nuisance to a serious frustration. A visibly dusty environment can be a source of stress, and dust can trigger coughing, sneezing, or congestion even in people with no underlying respiratory problems.  Besides dust, your ducts can also circulate molecules that cause unpleasant odors–scent particles from paint fumes, cleaning agents, pets, tobacco, etc. can all build up in your ventilation system. If you’ve noticed a persistent smell in your home, the issue may lie in your ducts. A duct cleaning from our technicians at Air Assault Air Conditioning & Heating will free your home from unwanted dust and odors.

Duct cleaning improves AC efficiency- If your ducts have become clogged with dust or grime, the airflow from your air conditioner may be restricted. This means that your AC unit will have to work harder to cool your home, and may mean a higher bill to achieve a comfortable temperature. A clean set of air ducts allows the air to circulate freely, ensuring a pleasant environment in a cost-effective manner.
