3 Reasons You Need an Air Duct Cleaning Before Winter
Removing debris from your air duct system is a crucial step that can help boost your home’s indoor air quality this winter. If you’re a St. Charles, Louisiana, resident hoping to reduce indoor allergens this coming season, here are a few reasons to consider scheduling an air duct cleaning.
Reduced Indoor Pollution
Many homes have never had an air duct cleaning. Unfortunately, indoor air is considerably more polluted than outside air, which is an unhealthy state to live in. When dust accumulates quickly despite constant cleaning, there’s a good chance you’re dealing with dusty ductwork.
If it’s been some time since your last HVAC duct cleaning, or if your home has never had its ducts cleaned, this essential service can reduce your indoor air pollution almost immediately.
Harmful contaminants can settle inside a home’s ductwork, which can cause mold, fungi, pet dander, dust, and other debris to recirculate throughout the home. When someone in your family suffers from asthma or allergies, this can cause trouble. Having your ducts cleaned by a professional HVAC technician eliminates allergen breeding grounds and improves your loved one’s breathing, which could result in a decreased need for medications.
Pet owners are more likely to require an HVAC duct cleaning because pet dander and fur gets trapped in air vents and can build up in the ductwork, producing bacteria and other allergens. More than that, pet dander and fur can reduce your HVAC system’s efficiency, slow the airflow and cause the system to work harder than necessary. Not only does this translate to an unhealthy environment for you, but also for your pet. Since both you and your pets spend more time indoors during the winter, a fall duct cleaning becomes even more crucial.
