Duct Cleaning During a New System Installation Just Makes Perfect Cents!
Most homeowners don’t see their air ducts very often – if at all – but that doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t benefit from some attention. Though duct cleaning isn’t high on most peoples’ to-do list, however, it can benefit your home and family in quite a few ways, especially if you’re about to install a new cooling system.
The Benefits of Duct Cleaning on Your Overall Health and Home Comfort
National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) President Michael Vinick suggests that homeowners have their ducts cleaned every 3 to 5 years, or even more frequently if you have asthma. Dirty air ducts can agitate asthma and other respiratory illnesses, but by regularly cleaning your air ducts, you may notice an improvement in your symptoms.
Duct cleaning can also alleviate allergy symptoms, especially in young children and the elderly. When your ducts are clear of dirt and debris, they spread less dust and other allergens around your home. In fact, according to a study by Allergy Consumer Review, HVAC and duct cleaning can reduce airborne particles by about 75%.
Why Clean Your Ducts During a New Installation?
One of the best times to get your ducts cleaned is during a new cooling or heating system installation. Not only is it extremely convenient, as HVAC professionals are already in your home to install your new equipment, but it also makes economic sense to have your ducts cleaned at the same time. Two birds, one stone.
Not only does air duct cleaning have a positive impact on your health, but it can also save you money. If you want your new system to operate at peak efficiency, you shouldn’t run it with dirty ducts that inhibit airflow—this will only slow your system down and raise your energy bills. Clean ducts can improve your HVAC system’s efficiency by up to 15%.
By having your air ducts cleaned before you install a new system, you also help ensure that your cooling equipment will last for as long as possible. Dirty ducts slow down the fan found in the air handler and can eventually lead to cracks in the heat exchanger, which can spell doom for your system. You can extend the life of your new equipment with a thorough duct cleaning.
