It’s no secret that HVAC systems have brought America homes immeasurable benefits in recent decades. There have been a number of advancements and improvements made, which has increased the efficiency and effectiveness of central air conditioner units as well as other types of HVAC systems. No air conditioner or furnace is immune to problems though! With central systems particularly, you have to keep in mind that air conditioners and heaters are complex appliances with snakes of ductwork making their way through your home.
As a result, your air ducts serve as a collection point for numerous contaminants, which can negatively impact your health. For this reason, regular duct cleaning services are a must. But how do you know if duct cleaning is really worth it? This may not be a service you’ve heard a lot about, but we’ve shared some commonly asked questions below to help you determine if you should invest in duct cleaning or not.
How often is Duct Cleaning Needed?
The very general answer to this question is 2-5 years. This is actually dependent on a few factors. If you have smokers in your home, or pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander, then you may need this service more frequently. Another factor to consider is water contamination or home damage from unrelated incidences that might have affected your air ducts.
But What Are the Benefits?
This is one of the most popular questions we get about duct cleaning, understandably. When the inside components of your HVAC system accumulate even the tiniest amount of debris, it makes the system’s delicate components work even harder to do their jobs. Duct cleaning helps improve efficiency and give your HVAC a potentially longer lifespan.
So, What Does it Cost?
We would have to say “it depends” again. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to the cost of duct cleaning. This includes the size of your HVAC system, how easy the system is to access, the climactic region you live in, the level of contamination involved, and even the material of your ductwork.
