Deciphering Duct Cleaning

March 19, 2015

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

A lot of people don’t know all of the benefits a qualified duct cleaning can offer. If you’ve recently embarked upon a remodeling project or maybe you moved into an older home, a duct cleaning is something you’ll want to add to that ever-growing to-do list to establish the air inside your home is pure and healthy.

There are a range of flags you can look out for to indicate that it is time to make an appointment for a duct cleaning. If you notice any of the following signs, call the professionals at Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating in Pella about booking an appointment for a professional duct cleaning.

  • Detectable mold growth within your ductwork or any of your HVAC components
  • Extra dirt or dust around the house, generated by a recent remodel or the age of the home
  • If you notice any evidence of insects or rodents in your ducts

There are a number of benefits to having a professional duct cleaning things like, the peace of mind that the air in your home is clean and won’t be adversely impacting your health, but another advantage is that it could help boost 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 more improved the efficiency, the lower your utility bills.
