Deciphering Duct Cleaning

March 19, 2015

If you’ve been experiencing 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.

Most people don’t realize all of the benefits a professional duct cleaning can offer. If you’ve recently undertaken a remodeling project or perhaps you moved into an older home, a duct cleaning is something you’ll want to add to that ever-growing to-do list to establish the air inside your home is clean and healthy.

There are a variety of flags you can look out for to demonstrate that it is time to lineup a duct cleaning. If you notice any of the ensuing signs, call the professionals at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning in York about scheduling a professional duct cleaning.

  • Visible mold growth inside your ductwork or any of your HVAC components
  • An abundance of 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 a number of benefits to having a professional duct cleaning those being, the peace of mind that the air in your home is clean and won’t be adversely impacting your health, but another advantage is that it could help improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. Pollutants in your ductwork and HVAC unit cause it to work harder, which negatively impacts the efficiency and life of your system. The greater the efficiency, the lower your utility bills.
