benefits of cleaning your air ducts

Do you know the last time you had your household’s air ducts cleaned?

How about the last time you had your air conditioner or heating/natural gas system inspected?

East Texas Refrigeration, in Tyler, Texas, has over forty years of experience in everything HVAC. Whether it’s air conditioner repair, heating repair, AC system checks, cleaning/replacing air conditioner filters, cleaning ductwork, AC system installation, installing a new air conditioner, or introducing you to our professional HVAC maintenance program – we have you covered.

As a trusted local business, we believe your safety and security are paramount when it comes to your air conditioning and furnace.

After all, there aren’t many things more important than the air we breathe.

We also believe in saving you money.

Cleaning your air ducts can help with all those things and more.

Here are some of the top benefits of cleaning your air ducts:

  1. Clean Air and Respiratory Health

Are you, or are members of your home some of the over 50 million Americans who suffer from household allergies in the US?

Allergies and other respiratory issues are not only a pain to deal with—they can also be dangerous. Asthma and other breathing-related health problems can too easily become worse with poor air quality. Especially in our homes, where we spend much of our time.

One of the main ways those issues can become worse is when there are problems in your HVAC system.

Schedule an appointment for an inspection and duct cleaning from your local HVAC experts to ensure your air filtration systems aren’t contributing to your health problems or worsening them.

Your local HVAC technicians will use state-of-the-art products and diagnostic equipment to inspect and clean your heating and cooling systems. They’ll be able to see if contaminants are clogging the ducts, especially if mold or mildew are growing in your HVAC system.

In addition to lessening household irritants, another benefit to cleaning your ducts is that it makes the overall air in your home cleaner. Not having your ducts cleaned could mean that your system builds up contaminants. As a result, poor air quality could impact the health of you and your family. Having a professional inspect and clean your ducts helps ensure you won’t have to deal with this problem.

  1. Save Money

Having your ducts cleaned can also have financial benefits.

An HVAC system working too hard because the ducts need to be cleaned will cost you more money in utility bills. A system that’s working overtime means higher electric costs. More efficient airflow means your devices are working properly and not costing you more money.

  1. Prevent HVAC Wear and Tear

Having your ducts cleaned and inspected is also a preventative measure. Using state-of-the-art equipment and diagnostic repair, your professional heating and cooling technicians will make sure your air conditioner and furnace are in good working order.

Catching issues before they become serious problems can save you a lot of money in the long run. It could even save you the cost of a new system. Fixing an issue, cleaning the ducts, and changing/cleaning air filters are a lot less expensive than replacing an entire heating and cooling system if it breaks.

Make sure you schedule regular seasonal inspections to keep your air conditioner and heating units in tip-top shape.

  1. Keep Renovations Clean

If you have a household renovation project going on, having your ducts cleaned is a must. Dust, and especially sawdust, can clog your ducts. This leads to issues with the unit and unhealthy household irritants blowing into your home when you turn on your AC or heater. If you’ve done household renovation, make sure to have your duct units inspected and cleaned before turning them on.

  1. Reduce Mold and Mildew

East Texas can be a hot, damp, and humid place a lot of the year. Unfortunately, this is a perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow, especially in our vents and ducts. Regular inspections help ensure you don’t have harmful mold and mildew growth in your home.

  1. Household Pets

Most of our sweet four-legged friends shed fur and dander—some of them a lot. This detritus floats throughout your home, collecting and landing in your vents and ducts. Over time, it can accumulate. If you have pets, it’s important to schedule regular duct cleaning so your home isn’t circulating extra contaminants. This is especially true if you have asthma or allergies.

We put a lot of effort into keeping our homes clean. But, too often, we forget about making sure the air we’re blowing into our houses and breathing is clean as well.
