Whether you are getting your heater ready for winter use or you are just setting up your air conditioner for its new season, how you manage your HVAC system is key to having a great home with clean and happy air quality. It doesn't matter how long you have had your HVAC system and how often you have the unit taken care of, if you have dirty ducts, then air quality can be compromised.
It's wise to get your ducts cleaned between each season of use, such as in between summer and winter months. When you get your duct cleaning services, you benefit in many ways. Here are just a few of the reasons you should get your ducts cleaned between seasons.
You ensure the safety of your ducts for future use
Whether you are using your ducts for the summer or the winter months, you want to make sure the ductwork is sound and ready for continued use. Your HVAC specialist will professionally clean your ducts, all while looking for signs of ill repair or a need to have parts of the ducts fixed. Your ducts are only as useful as they are healthy, so if your ducts do need any professional repairs such as components being replaced or being prepped for proper airflow, your duct cleaning specialist will let you know during the cleaning process.
You ensure the health and vitality of your family
During the spring and summer months, the allergens that are present in your ducts, such as hair, pollen, dander, and other things, can make your family's allergies and sensitivities worse whenever the air conditioning is turned on. Likewise, in the winter months, the dust particles leftover from summer can get hot and make the air dry and stuffy, which can attribute to winter colds and upper respiratory illnesses.
In short, when you operate either your air conditioner or your heater nearly non-stop during the colder and hotter seasons and you've yet to have your ducts cleaned or treated, you can end up with ducts that emit poorer quality air. In getting your ducts professionally cleaned regularly, you can help preserve your family's health overall.
Your ducts should be cleaned as well as your HVAC system's filters checked regularly. If you do your part to keep your home's ducts in good repair, you are also doing your part to contribute to the health and vitality of your heating and cooling system overall.
