Temperatures are already starting to drop, and before long we’ll be hit with snow, ice, and sleet. Throughout these weeks, families tend to stay indoors as much as possible, either cozied up by the fire, baking something sweet to eat, or simply curled up on the couch with a good movie or book. If this sounds all too familiar, then perhaps it’s time to ensure the air ducts in your home are free of contaminants and running as efficiently as possible!
Dust, Mold & Other Potential Threats
It’s inevitable that foreign substances will accumulate in your air duct system. Dust, dirt, and other debris can work their way in easily, then continue spreading throughout your home until someone eventually removes them. While their presence cannot be altogether avoided, what can be controlled is how much of it there is.
By regularly investing in cleanings (at least one per year), you minimize the number of contaminants that are regularly in your air. This will do a lot for the health of you and your family members, and it is especially beneficial for those with allergies, asthma, or a weakened immune system.
If you have a pet, you also risk pet dander floating through your home on a constant basis. This could leave guests and loved ones sick in a hurry and, if anyone has been down the flu or some other illness in the recent past, those viruses will be shuffling through your air system, too. All in all, a regular cleaning can play a big part in keeping everyone happier, healthier, and more comfortable.
The Impact On Your Bank Account
Another thing many fail to consider is the impact of poor circulation on one’s monthly energy bills. As your vents get dirtier and dirtier, they have to work a lot harder to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. In a time where you’ll likely be running the heat a lot more, this is the last thing you need, and higher bills could make holiday shopping and meal planning more of a struggle, as well.
In the long run, paying for a cleaning now will be a lot more beneficial than paying more for energy usage month-to-month. Not to mention, you’ll avoid costly doctor bills, too, since family members will be less likely to get sick! It’s a win all around.
Do My Ducts Need Attention?
Not sure when you had your last cleaning or if your ducts are in poor shape? Here are a few signs to watch for:
- You’ve been sweeping and wiping up more dust than usual.
- Higher than normal energy bills.
- You’ve undergone reconstruction work. (This tends to bring a lot of dust and other particles into your home.)
- You notice a constant layer of dust throughout your home.
