The Maynard Man doesn’t expect the average homeowner to know very much about the air ducts snaking their way through their homes. This makes sense. After all, ductwork is hidden from view for a reason–it’s really not that attractive.
And the truth is, you shouldn’t have to think about the state of your ductwork too often. However, it’s important to give them some attention every now and then–especially if they’re dirty.
The Maynard Man provides professional duct cleaning services to keep your HVAC systems running as efficiently as possible, and to improve your indoor air quality. Read on to learn more!
The dirt and debris that’s likely sitting in your ductwork as we type this blog post can be interfering with the performance of your forced-air HVAC system. The most efficient air conditioners and heating systems cool or heat the air and then distribute it back into your home via the air ducts. What happens is that dirty ductwork can create friction and resistance.
When there is airflow resistance, your HVAC systems have to run longer to try to compensate and reach the desired temperature setting on your thermostat. This is highly inefficient and will cause your utility bills to be higher than they should be.
Improving Indoor Air Quality
Perhaps the biggest reason The Maynard Man recommends duct cleaning is to improve your indoor air quality. Sure, your HVAC systems have an air filter. However, this air filter is in place to protect the HVAC systems themselves from dirt, dust, and other debris that can get inside and damage its sensitive components.
The air filter is not sufficient for keeping pollutants and contaminants out of your home–for that, you’ll want the right indoor air quality solutions–one of these solutions is professional duct cleaning!
Particles such as dirt, debris, allergens, and germs can get inside your ductwork through cracks, through the vents, or even just years of sitting untouched. professional air duct cleaning from our team requires that we comprehensively clean out this debris, helping you breathe a bit easier.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you might have regarding professional duct cleaning. The good news is that this is a service you should only need every 2-3 years. We’ll take a look and let you know what’s best for your specific system and home.
