Three Reasons Why Cleaning Your Air Ducts is Important


It’s a good idea to periodically get into your attic or crawlspace to inspect your ductwork. Specifically, you need to look for holes, separations where ducts are split, mold, and evidence of animal or insect damage. And every few years, it’s not a bad idea to have your ducts professionally cleaned. Doing the job properly involves deep cleaning ducts and the furnace or heat pump intakes and exhausts.

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends having air ducts cleaned every 3 to 5 years, and advises consumers to be suspicious of any contractors that recommend having the process done more frequently. DASH Heating & Cooling is the leading provider of professional duct cleaning services in Central Arkansas, and we’re always available any time that you have questions, or would like to schedule a free estimate. Here are a few of the key benefits of duct cleaning:

Cleaner air

You’d be amazed at how much dust, pet hair, mold, fungi, and bacteria can collect in your HVAC system and ducts over time. Additionally, many dust particles are small enough to escape through your air filters. Cleaning your ducts is a good way to improve air quality, and reduce household odors.

Savings on household utilities

The more debris that you have accumulated in your ducts, the longer that your units will have to run to heat or cool your home to the desired temperature. You may see significant savings on your utility bills right away.

Longer lifespan for your furnace or heat pump

Most units have an operational lifespan of 9-12 years, but if the unit has to run constantly because of blockage in the ducts or coils, you may wind up being forced to replace your unit sooner than you had planned.
