Duct Cleaning Question: How do I reduce dust in my home?

Monday, September 17th, 2012 at 8:45 am

Duct cleaning can be an effective way to cut down on dust circulating throughout the air inside your home, which can improve indoor air quality. Even if you clean regularly, an occasional duct cleaning service can provide many benefits. Call Next Generation Air and Heat to speak with one of our Melbourne indoor air quality experts to learn more about our duct cleaning services.

 Ductwork and Dust

Ductwork is designed to move large volumes of air, so adequate airflow is important. If your ductwork is filled with dust and other debris, it can affect the airflow and pressure within the ductwork. It can also reduce indoor air quality when the dust trapped in your ductwork is distributed throughout your home, even if you have a decent air filtration system. Over time, your ductwork can build up quite a bit of dust, and if you turn your HVAC system off for any period of time in spring or fall, it may be a good idea to have your ducts cleaned.

Not only does the dust then get distributed throughout your home when the air conditioner or furnace is turned back on, which can exacerbate allergies, but excess dirt and dust can also reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system. Both of these are problematic but can be resolved with regular duct cleaning.

Getting Your Ducts Cleaned

Regular duct cleaning should be performed once a year on average to minimize the impact of high levels of dust and debris in you ductwork. If you are concerned about the air inside your home, or if you know for a fact that there are airflow problems in your ductwork, you should call to ask about duct cleaning any time.

Duct cleaning only takes a few hours to perform and can thoroughly clear out the months of debris and dust that builds up in ductwork naturally over time. Plus, during these cleanings, your technician can check for potential air leaks that might lead to other air quality issues and decreased heating or cooling efficiency.
