Importance of Duct Cleaning for Home Comfort
Duct cleaning is an important part of home maintenance—unfortunately, some companies have engaged in some unsavoury practices that have left homeowners leery of scheduling their cleaning. At A1 Heating & Air Conditioning, we want to let our customers know that we offer this important home maintenance service—but we never call homeowners, or pressure them into getting this service.
There are a number of benefits to having a home’s ducts cleaned:
- Reduces Allergens, Dust and Irritants
Contaminants can accumulate in the air ducts and cause a number of problems, from aggravating allergy symptoms and respiratory problems to increase the amount of dust circulating in the home. Duct cleaning can remove many of the microscopic irritants found in ducts—allowing everyone in the home to breathe easier.
- Helps Remove Unpleasant Smells
Pet odours, cleaning solutions, mould and tobacco can accumulate in air ducts leading to unpleasant smells in the home, especially when the heating or cooling system is operating. Professional cleaning can improve the indoor air quality and leave your home smelling fresh and clean.
- Improves Air Flow
A heavy buildup of dust and debris in the ducts actually restrict the flow of air from the system—causing it to work harder. This can cause your furnace or air conditioner to work harder to keep the home comfortable and can drive up monthly energy costs. A detailed cleaning can help ensure that ducts and registers are clear.
A1 Air Conditioning & Heating will never call homeowners asking to schedule duct cleaning. We believe it’s an important part of home comfort, but also realize homeowners prefer to contact us about this service.
Remember that you don’t need to schedule duct cleaning every year. For most homes, ducts only need to be cleaned once every six to seven years. However, if you’ve just undertaken a major home renovation, or have someone living in the home that’s highly sensitive to allergens—you’ll want to schedule duct cleaning more often.
Contact us today to schedule your duct cleaning or if you have questions, we’re always happy to help! For a limited time, we are offering 20% off duct cleaning when you purchase a new air conditioner!
