Most Kansas City homeowners never giver their ductwork a second thought – one of those “out of sight, out of mind” things. The fact is, the air ducts play an essential role in your heating/cooling system, delivering conditioned air to your living spaces. There are several benefits of having your ducts cleaned by a professional HVAC contractor, which we will explain below. Our goal at Schomburg Heating & Cooling is not only to keep your home comfortable, but to make your system more efficient and help protect the health of your family by enjoying cleaner, fresher air.
Benefits of duct cleaning
If homeowners in St. Joe, Platte City, or other nearby communities could see what may be lurking in their ducts, it would likely be rude awakening. Not only does dust, dirt, pollen, and animal dander build up in the ducts, there could potentially be mice droppings and other unpleasant things inside the duct work. When a leak or hole is in the ductwork, animals can make their way inside and even build nests. Regardless, anything that is in your ductwork could be blowing inside your home every time the heat or air comes on. This means dust, dirt, pollen, and other tiny particles that can not only aggravate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems, but indoor air that isn’t as clean as it should be. Having your ducts cleaned will let you breathe easier knowing the air inside your home is clean, and you will enjoy a system that is more efficient as well.
Frequency of duct cleaning
How often a homeowner should have the ducts cleaned depends on many factors, including whether there are smokers in the home, pets, etc. In addition, some homeowners are more concerned about cleanliness than others, and want to ensure the air inside their homes is free from airborne contaminants. It is really a matter of preference, although the factors we mentioned above (smoking, pet dander/shedding, etc.) would affect how often you should have your ducts cleaned. Give our Kansas City duct cleaning professionals a call, and we can help you determine whether it may be time to consider this service.
Why should you hire our Kansas City Air Duct Cleaning HVAC professionals?
You may be thinking you can handle the job yourself, but cleaning the air ducts is a more complex process than simply wiping them down. Our contractors use professional grade equipment that is designed for the job so that mold, dirt, pollen, mildew, pet dander, and other contaminants are completely removed. There is also the possibility that a pollutant inside your ductwork could be potentially harmful to your health, so it’s best left to the experts. Ducts are a natural breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and other organisms, particularly in warmer months when the air conditioner runs. By having a professional complete the work, you enjoy peace of mind knowing that your ducts are truly clean and free from bacteria or contaminants.
