Deciphering Duct Cleaning

March 19, 2015

If you’ve encountered respiratory discomfort you’ve presumably made appointments with your doctor, but the appointment you may not have thought to make that could really make a difference is for a duct cleaning.

Some people don’t know all of the benefits a professional duct cleaning can offer. If you’ve recently undergone a remodeling project or perhaps you moved into an older home, a duct cleaning is something you’ll want to add to that ever-growing to-do list to ensure the air throughout your home is fresh and healthy.

There are a variety of flags you can look out for to demonstrate that it is time to make an appointment for a duct cleaning. If you note any of the following signs, call the professionals at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace in Monroe about booking an appointment for a professional duct cleaning.

  • Visible mold growth on the interior of your ductwork or any of your HVAC components
  • An abundance of dirt or dust around the house, created by a recent remodel or the age of the home
  • If you start seeing any evidence of insects or rodents in your ducts

There are many benefits to having a professional duct cleaning those being, the peace of mind that the air in your home is clean and won’t be adversely impacting your health, but another benefit is that it could help enhance the efficiency of your HVAC system. Contaminants in your ductwork and HVAC unit cause it to work harder, which hinders the efficiency and life of your system. The greater the efficiency, the lower your utility bills.
