You don’t generally notice your household air ducts because they’re out of sight, and out of mind. But the network of ducts that supply heating and cooling to your home may also be supplying something that you don’t want: dust, pollen, mold, and other irritants! Many of these irritants are too small to be filtered out with big box store air filters, and can collect inside your system, contaminating the air that you breathe.
Additionally, these particles can also collect around vital components of your heating and air system, and force your system to work harder to keep your home comfortable. This can lead to premature component failure, higher maintenance and repair bills, and a shorter operational life span for your system.
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends having air ducts cleaned every 3 to 5 years, and DASH Heating & Cooling is the leading provider of professional duct cleaning services in central Arkansas. Here are three key benefits to having your air ducts inspected and, if necessary, cleaned:
1. Breathe easier: You’d be amazed at how much dust, pet hair, mold, fungi, and bacteria can collect in your HVAC system and ducts over time. These contaminants can give the air in your home an unpleasant smell, and can lead to respiratory problems, especially in young children and the elderly.
2. Save money: Debris accumulated in your air ducts creates resistance, making your HVAC unit work harder for the same results. You can often see an immediate improvement in your utility bills by having your air ducts professionally cleaned.
3. Keep your HVAC unit healthy: Most units have an operational lifespan of 9-12 years, but if blocked ducts or coils cause them to cycle on and off more often, you could be faced with an early replacement.
