The Importance of Duct Cleaning

Did you know that a single duct cleaning removes an average of six pounds of dust and other debris from a home? The air inside your home is full of tiny particles like dust, pollen and pet dander, and when your furnace or air conditioner draws air it pulls in these airborne particles. Over time, these contaminants can build up insider your ducts, reducing air flow while recirculating throughout your house.

What is air duct cleaning?

Air duct cleaning involves cleaning debris from all ducts, registers, grills and other components of a forced air system.

Because the ducts are behind walls and above the ceiling, the only way to clean them effectively is by using a high-powered, truck-mounted vacuum and compression system.

At Deljo Heating & Cooling we recommend frequent cleaning if you have pets or you’re sensitive to indoor air quality. And if you’ve recently had your house renovated, you should have your ducts cleaned as renovation work increases the amount of dust in your forced air system.

Benefits of air duct cleaning

We believe these are the four main benefits of professional duct cleaning.

  • Creates a cleaner living environment

    – Having your ducts professionally cleaned reduces the amount of dust circulating through your living space, reducing the amount of cleaning and dusting needed to maintain a hygienic home.

  • Reduces allergens and irritants

    – In addition to dust, air ducts often contain harmful contaminants and micro-organisms such as pet dander, bacteria, pollen, mildew and mold spores. People with respiratory problems are particularly sensitive to these airborne particles, and a periodic air duct cleaning promotes healthier living.

  • Boosts energy efficiency

    – Dust and debris reduce the flow to and from the components of your HVAC system, making your furnace or air conditioner work harder and consume more energy to do its job. Clean ducts help your system perform at peak efficiency.

  • Protects your equipment

    – Regular duct maintenance that keeps dust and debris out of your HVAC components helps prevents costly repairs and will extend the life of your system.
