When Is it Time to Schedule Air Duct Cleaning?

Improving your indoor air quality should be high on your to-do list ahead of the spring season. If you haven’t scheduled an air duct cleaning in Orlando over the last 3-5 years, now is a great time to invest in the service. 

It offers many unique benefits for your home and family. You can keep reading to learn more about what air duct cleaning is and the benefits of scheduling the service regularly. You can give our team a call to schedule your appointment or get answers to any questions you may have about how it works.

Dusty Surfaces

It’s normal to have to wipe down surfaces in your home occasionally because of dust buildup. But if you are noticing a layer of dust soon after wiping down bookshelves or cabinets, it may be time for a duct cleaning. Dust can get into your HVAC system and then settle inside your ductwork where it stirs up with airflow to mix in with clean air and blow back out into your home. This cycle can continue until it is a significant problem.

Noticing a lot of dust around your home may seem like a minor inconvenience, but it also means that you have poor indoor air quality. And the bottom line is, it’s a problem that is fixable when you invest in duct cleaning services. If you’ve never had your ducts cleaned, or it has been at least 3-5 years, now is a great time to schedule the service ahead of spring so you can breathe easy. 

Allergies and Illness

If you or someone in your family suffers from allergy symptoms or gets sick regularly, dirty ducts may be a contributing factor. After all, it’s not just dust that gets into your ductwork. Dust particles can attract allergens and bacteria, allowing those harmful particles to cycle back through your home as well.

Higher dust levels can make it more likely that you will suffer from allergies or get sick because the air is more polluted. In fact, your indoor air quality could be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. Scheduling a duct cleaning service is a great way to improve your indoor air quality and breathe easier.

High Energy Costs

Duct services are not just about cleaning out dust buildup. It’s also an opportunity for our team to take a look at your ductwork and identify areas where damage is allowing conditioned air to escape before reaching your home. If your energy costs are going up without an obvious explanation, it’s possible that your ductwork has broken seals and holes where conditioned air is escaping. 

Meanwhile, the indoor air temperature of your home is not reaching your desired temperature, so your air conditioner or heater has to continue working harder to produce enough air to reach the walls of your home. Investing in duct services gives our team an opportunity to repair damage and reseal connections so your ductwork is airtight and all heated or cooled air blows into your home instead of escaping.
