What if simply having one part of your home cleaned could solve a whole list of problems? That would be pretty amazing, right? Well, actually, there is a cleaning task that's capable of such prolific problem-solving. It's called air duct cleaning. Here are the problems that a single air duct cleaning appointment can solve.

Dust all over your home

If you feel like your shelves, furniture, and possessions are always getting covered in dust, then you may feel you need to dust every week or vacuum a few times just to keep the dust at bay. Chances are, that dust is coming from your air ducts. When the heat or AC is on, the air coming through the ducts carries some dust out with it, and that dust slowly settles out of the air and onto your surfaces. This is why homes seem dustier in the winter — it's because the heat is turning on more often. Having your air ducts cleaned will eliminate this annoying dust at its source and save you from having to clean so often.

Indoor allergy symptoms

Sneezing, itching, and runny eyes are common symptoms of indoor allergies. You might take allergy medications to manage your symptoms, yet still wake up feeling miserable some days. The allergens might be coming from your air ducts. Dust mites, pollen, pet dander, and mold spores can all collect in the air ducts and then enter the air when your heat or AC turns on. You inhale these allergens each time you take a breath, so of course, your symptoms are bothering you. Air duct cleaning should reduce your allergy symptoms so you don't have to take allergy medications as often.

Increasing energy bills

There are many reasons why energy bills can climb. Sometimes, it's because your HVAC equipment is old and beginning to break down. However, it can also be because your ducts are dirty and are beginning to deposit dirt on either the furnace burner or AC heat exchanger. By having your ducts cleaned, you will keep your HVAC equipment cleaner, which should lower your energy bills again. Using less energy is a good thing for the planet, too.

Air duct cleaning is an excellent way to solve several home problems. Have your air ducts cleaned, and in a single appointment, you will be working towards solving the problems of high energy bills, allergy symptoms, and a dusty home.
