3 Reasons Duct Cleaning Needs To Happen During Air Conditioner Service

Duct cleaning can be extremely impactful to your quality of life. From increased airflow to energy efficiency and allergy issues, adding duct cleaning to air conditioner or HVAC maintenance schedule once every year or so can be a huge advantage for you.

Over time, dust, pollen and even mold can build up in your ducts and HVAC system. This means when the air conditioner or heater turns on, the spores are released into the air for you to ingest. While some are less harmful, people who have allergies or sensitivity to certain spores will react negatively. As well, if your HVAC filter hasn’t been replaced in a few months, it can’t catch much of the dust and dirt and will start to send even more of it into your home.

Duct Cleaning

1. Avoid Scams

By contracting for duct cleaning with the company which already does your HVAC or air conditioner service, you’re working with someone you trust. If you’re out looking for or are approached by a company which just does duct cleaning, you’re more likely to run into a scam which can cost you more money than it would to contact with someone you already know.

2. To Avoid Dust On The Evaporator Coil

Remember when we talked about all of the dust, pollen and mold which can build up? Well, if it lands on your evaporator coil, it can lead to decreased performance in your air conditioner as well as increased energy usage. It’s all around bad news to not have a clean evaporator coil!

3. Save Money

Again, saving money is the big one here for most people. Keeping the system clean and clear allows air to flow more freely, saving you money on energy. Also, keeping it clean prevents your family and pets from ingesting spores, dust and mold which can exacerbate allergies and other medical conditions, which can increase medical costs.
