Deciphering Duct Cleaning

March 19, 2015

If you’ve been suffering from respiratory discomfort you’ve most likely made appointments with your doctor, but the appointment you may not have thought to make that could really improve your health is for a duct cleaning.

Some people don’t realize all of the benefits a professional duct cleaning can offer. If you’ve recently embarked upon a remodeling project or perchance you moved into an older home, a duct cleaning is something you’ll want to add to that ever-growing to-do list to make certain the air throughout your home is clean and healthy.

There are a variety of flags you can look out for to indicate that it is time to schedule a duct cleaning. If you note any of the following signs, call the professionals at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning in Moline about setting up a professional duct cleaning.

  • Detectable mold growth inside your ductwork or any of your HVAC components
  • Extra dirt or dust around the house, caused by a recent remodel or the age of the home
  • If you start seeing any evidence of insects or rodents in your ducts

There are many benefits to having a professional duct cleaning such as, the peace of mind that the air in your home is clean and won’t be negatively impacting your health, but another perk is that it could help boost the efficiency of your HVAC system. Toxins in your ductwork and HVAC unit cause it to work harder, which adversely effects the efficiency and life of your system. The higher the efficiency, the lower your utility bills.
