In the dead of our Twin Cities summer, many homeowners beat the heat and humidity by staying indoors. But if you’ve got dirty ductwork, spending considerable time shut inside your house could present problems for you and your loved ones’ health.
Because most of the air inside your home is recirculated by your HVAC system, if there’s gunk in your ducts, you’re breathing in those particles on a near-constant basis. Fortunately, there’s something you can do about it: schedule a duct cleaning appointment. Below, the experts at Dust Doctors explain why summer is the ideal season for professional duct cleaning.
Duct Cleaning Improves Indoor Air Quality
Do you know what’s lurking inside your air ducts? Most homeowners have no idea, but if they did, they’d keep up with regular duct cleaning appointments. So what might be in there? Here are just a few of the nasties that take up residence in the average household duct system:
● Dust mites
● Mold and mildew
● Dander, hair, pollen, and other allergens
● Volatile organic compounds
● Chemical residues
Because these health-harming substances readily accumulate inside your ducts, your HVAC system recirculates them on a constant basis. And because HVAC filters can only trap so much, you end up breathing in remnants of those particles whenever you’re indoors.
After a thorough duct cleaning, though, you’ll enjoy cleaner indoor air because those particles will no longer plague your duct system. If you deal with persistent indoor allergies, you may want to consider implementing an air purification system in addition to annual or biannual duct cleaning.
Prepare Your HVAC System for Cooler Weather
Scheduling professional air duct cleaning during the summer months is a great way to ensure your heating system is well prepared for colder weather. If your HVAC system runs around the clock throughout the summer months, your ducts can accumulate plenty of interior buildup, which should be cleaned out before you crank up your furnace. Excessively dirty ductwork reduces furnace efficiency, so if you’re not keen on high energy bills throughout the winter, schedule a duct cleaning appointment while it’s still warm outside.
