What am I Breathing?
By Amy Renken
When is the last time you’ve had your air ducts cleaned? Do you know why cleaning your air ducts is important? Air flows through your air ducts hundreds of times throughout the day. Each time the air goes through, more dirt and debris is brought with it polluting the air you are breathing each day. It’s important to have this system cleaned every few years (three to five, to be exact) in order to keep your system running efficiently and produce clean air.
Will this help my HVAC system?
Yes, absolutely. If you haven’t had your ducts cleaned in several years, your system is working extra hard to push air through all of the grime. The dirt and debris that have been carried through it have added up and begun to clog your system, which also hinders its ability to produce heat or cool air. Once it’s cleaned, you’ll probably notice that your system is running quicker and more efficiently.
What are the signs of dirty air ducts?

Other signs may include unexplainable respiratory problems, although this isn’t a guaranteed sign that you need your air ducts cleaned – if you are experiencing these issues, it can’t hurt to give your air ducts a good, professional cleaning.
What are the benefits of cleaning my air ducts?
As previously stated, it will help the efficiency of your HVAC system with heating and cooling as well as airflow. In addition to these benefits of saving your home energy, this cleaning will also help to produce less polluted air which could result in increased health.
