To have your air ducts cleaned
Autumn is now officially upon us, full of beautiful sunsets, cold nights and holidays everyone can enjoy. While the changing of the seasons brings cooler weather, pumpkin flavorings, and football, it brings upon a massive list of maintenance protocols for homeowners. From lawn maintenance to getting your gardening ready for winter, there is one major thing that all homeowners should be thinking about this fall, air duct cleaning. We know that it doesn’t sound like the most exciting chore but it is one of the best things to do with winter looming right around the corner. Want to know why we and so many homeowners put air duct cleaning on top of their priorities in Autumn? Well, you can find out down below!
While many believe that Spring and Summer are the reasons why their allergies appear, that is actually not the case. If you suffer from allergies, you should be taking extra precautions to avoid the spike in allergies the Autumn can bring into your home. From hefty amounts of pollen, dust and other debris entering your home through the hot months and calling home in your air ducts to mold and fungi making their way into your home from the cooler weather or less sunlight, there are serious repercussions from leaving your ducts dirty. With air duct cleaning, not only will the debris from the last few years be removed, you can identify and take the proper steps to remove any mold or fungi buildup in the ducts, saving you and your family from serious health concerns.
Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from poor indoor air quality? Well besides the carpet, your air ducts are the biggest contributor to the poor air quality in most homes, especially older homes. With Autumn comes the use of heaters, fireplaces, and blankets. But with the use of heaters and fireplaces comes the appearance of soot, dust, and dander that will accumulate in our ductwork and circulated around the home every time the heater kicks on. By having your air ducts cleaned every 3-5 years, you can limit the amount of these pollutants that your family will have to deal with and with the flu season right around the corner, you want to stay as healthy as possible.
When your air ducts are filled with debris, it will cause your HVAC system to work harder to compensate for the blockage. The overworking of the system will lead to bigger power draws to maintain the temperatures you have set on your thermostat. Not only will you experience higher power draws from your HVAC unit, but you will also notice that some rooms are noticeably hotter or colder than the others. By removing the debris from your ductwork during the Autumn, you are preparing the HVAC system and your wallet for the full-time use of the system in the winter and with the holidays right around the corner, you want to keep your savings healthy!
With the holidays right around the corner, you are most likely going to be entertaining more guests than usual. When you are entertaining, you will want a clean home but that can be hard with a dirty ductwork system. The build-up of dust and other debris will be circulated around your home, making rooms dustier and make you work harder to keep these areas clean. With air duct cleaning, you can remove all the build-up in your ducts, resulting in a cleaner, more enjoyable home!
