Why You Should Clean Your Air Ducts At The Beginning of The Year

When assessing and preparing your home for the new year, you might be considering a few things on your to-do list. This may involve a whole house cleaning or even a baseboard paint job. Regardless of what’s currently on your list, there’s one chore you should add: cleaning your air ducts. This task can guarantee that your home and the air you breathe is healthy for the year ahead.

What Cleaning Does

First and foremost, when you clean your air ducts you remove dust and debris from your AC system. This is crucial during the new year’s first few months – of cold winter – because your family is mostly indoors. Your family will be breathing better with cleaner ducts for the spring.

Just as importantly, cleaning your air ducts helps your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system (called HVAC) run more efficiently. When you have clean filters and air ducts, your HVAC system isn’t having to work twice as hard to do its everyday job.

Finally, cleaning removes odors that tend to hang around. For example, if you had family over during the holidays, now is the time to clean up after them. If any of them are smokers, that lingering smell might be trapped inside your system until you have the ducts cleaned.

What Cleaning Ensures

The best part of having your air ducts cleaned is that it ensures better breathing air. This can be a major improvement in the health of your family members, especially if any of them are allergy-prone or are children.
