When it comes to keeping your Stonewall, Louisiana, home clean and presentable, you likely have a list that you generally stick to for its upkeep. However, many homeowners forget about is the HVAC system, which moves air from the furnace and air conditioner through its vents to each room of the house. When ducts get dirty, your family may breathe air that could make you sick. Scheduling duct cleaning regularly can help improve air quality and keep your home clean overall.
Better Indoor Air Quality
The main reason homeowners choose to have their ducts cleaned is to help improve indoor air quality. This is particularly important if anyone in your home suffers from allergies or breathing conditions such as asthma. Contaminants in the air can worsen these conditions, making it hard to breathe when you’re at home. Many of us worry about pollutants in the air we breathe outside, without giving much thought to what’s inside our HVAC ducts. These get overloaded with pollen, dust, pet hair, dander, and other debris.
Another major benefit to having ducts cleaned is improved efficiency, which can help you save money. When ducts are full of debris, the system has to work harder to move heated or cooled air through them. Your HVAC system will waste a lot of energy in order to produce the same result, which costs you more each month in heating and cooling bills. Keeping ducts free of contaminants allows the system to run more efficiently.
Check for Mold
Here in Louisiana, the humidity levels are higher than in other parts of the country. Many homeowners struggle to keep the moisture under control, which can lead to mold growth in HVAC ducts. Mold can cause serious allergic symptoms, so a duct cleaning service typically includes sanitizing to kill mold spores.
