Air Conditioning Guide: Benefits of Duct Cleaning

Monday, September 24th, 2012 at 8:00 am

There are many benefits to having the ductwork in your home cleaned on an annual basis, both in terms of air quality and efficiency in your HVAC system. That’s why it is something we highly recommend for all of our customers and offer as part of our basic indoor air quality services.

Here are a few of the specific benefits you will find from duct cleaning in your home on an annual basis:

  • Better Air Quality – Air quality suffers when your ductwork is dirty. This happens for a number of reasons. To start, your ductwork can build up a layer of dirt and dust between seasons that will bypass the filtration system. Additionally, it can attract pests and other contaminants that can lead to bigger problems down the line.
  • Higher Efficiency – If efficiency is an issue for your home’s heating and air conditioning system, it could be due to the state of your ductwork. Dirty ductwork can reduce efficiency by as much as 30% in your heating or cooling system, resulting in higher bills, longer run times and less effective temperature control.
  • Fewer Repairs – Repairs become a problem when your heating and cooling systems run more often. Cleaner ductwork means fewer repairs for every major component of your HVAC system.

Ductwork, when properly maintained, will perform well over the course of a long winter or summer and will ensure you remain comfortable at all times as long as your HVAC system and air quality systems work as intended. If you are overdue for cleaning of your ductwork, consider contacting a Palm Bay air conditioning technician to visit and inspect yours.

We offer comprehensive duct cleaning services for this very reason, call Next Generation Air and Heat today to schedule your appointment!
