Why cleaning your air ducts is worth the investment in the long run

While most consumers think the air handler, thermostat and filter are the most important parts of your air conditioning unit, as they are parts of your air conditioning unit you can physically see, they aren’t the only important components. Your air ducts are also an extremely important part of the system.

These networks of hidden tubes that live in the walls and attic attract dust, dirt and other debris from both inside and outside the home. This dirt and debris is able to enter the ducts via floor registers in the home, which then attracts rodents that decide to move in.

To avoid those rodents that most families would like to avoid, it’s important to clean your air ducts. This will prevent an infestation of bugs and critters, which can become a total nightmare.

In addition, when you clean your air ducts you are also cleaning your cooling coils, heat exchangers and fans in your HVAC system. By having all these items clean will help with HVAC efficiency, as the system doesn’t have to work as hard to pump out cool air.  Plus, with clean coils the motor will have less wear and tear meaning your overall system will get a longer life span.

A cleaner system will also help with your electric bill as less energy is being consumed if the system doesn’t have to work as hard. That means more money in your pocket and less to the electric company.

Lastly, by cleaning your air ducts on a regular basis will help remove odors that are captured in the home. Odors from such things as cooking, smoking, chemicals and pets can get trapped in air ducts and create a foul odor that can last a long time in the home. With clean air ducts you will help improve your indoor air quality.
