Happy Halloween Weekend! (and Why to Clean Your Air Ducts)

Happy Halloween from everyone at Air National! We hope you have a fantastically spooky time! And to make sure you have nothing scary in the your air ducts, it is a great time to think about having them cleaned.

You know it’s important to keep your air ducts clean in your St. PetersburgĀ home, but why? Many people ask that question, and it’s important to understand why you are doing such a chore so that it has a purpose.

Actually, there is no one reason why your air ducts need to be kept clean – there are several, all of which are connected to one another. Here are five of them for you to consider:

  • Efficiency: Clean air ducts allow the air to flow through much easier and more readily, so your furnace orĀ air conditioner won’t have to work as hard to ventilate the house. This makes for more efficient operation and lower energy consumption.
  • Performance: When your HVAC system does not have to work as hard to push air through the ductwork, it will perform better. Your home will be more comfortable and better ventilated.
  • Longevity: Because your HVAC system is operating more efficiently, it will be able to perform at a high level for a longer period of time. Well-maintained systems last longer than those that are not taken care of, and cleaning the ducts is part of good HVAC maintenance.
  • Savings: Clean ducts can save you a lot of money over time. Your energy bills will be lower because of how efficiently the whole system is running. You will spend less on maintenance and repair costs, because the system is being well-maintained. And, as an added bonus, your ducts will last longer because of the decreased risk of corrosion and damage from being dirty.
  • Health: Last, but certainly not least, clean air ducts mean clean air, which is important for your health and your family’s health. Especially if you have pets, if you smoke or live with a smoker, or if anyone in the house has allergies or asthma, cleaning your air ducts is a must. You could even include the decreased frequency of doctor visits under the savings mentioned above!

Clean air ducts go a long way toward making your home a pleasant place to live, as well as making home ownerships as worry-free as possible. Yes, it entails some extra work and/or expense, but in the end the benefits far outweigh the cost.
