The ductwork in your home is important as it keeps air flowing through your home. However, dirty ducts can push allergens, pollutants, dust and even bad odors through your home. In addition, dirty and unmaintained ductwork could be costing you every month on your energy bill.

Improve Air Quality in Your Home
The number one reason to get your ducts cleaned is to improve the air quality in your home. Ducts circulate whatever pollen, mold, dust and debris is build up in them throughout your home. That means your family is breathing in these allergens and pollutants with every breath they take. You can reduce the risk of these irritants circulating through your home by getting your ducts cleaned.
Increase HVAC System Efficiency
The building up of dust and debris in your ducts can reduce the amount of airflow your system puts out. This reduced airflow can lead to irregular temperature throughout your home which will make your HVAC system work harder to maintain a consistent temperature. As a result, you will see your energy bill climb higher than you'd probably like.
Reduce Fire Risk
Anytime you have an excess of dust and debris in your ducts your are at increased risk of a fire starting. As this debris heats up, it can catch fire! This is a more serious danger in the summertime as ducts tend to heat up. By having your ducts cleaned on a semi-regular basis you can protect your home and family from a fire started from dirty ducts.
Increase HVAC System Lifespan
As we mentioned above, dirty ducts impede the amount of airflow through your home. This causes your system to work harder to maintain temperature. When your system is subject to this strain for an extended period of time, motors and compressors will start to wear out and break and eventually you'll need a whole new HVAC system.
