Yes! Regular duct cleaning is recommended for families that have allergies or asthma. Air ducts are an ideal place for allergens and other irritants to settle throughout the year. Your indoor air quality could be affected by impurities in your air supply, including:
Mold or mildew
If you or someone in your family is experiencing symptoms of allergies inside your home, it’s best to contact Star City for cleaner ducts and better breathing.
Every homeowner should have their duct cleaned at least twice a year. This is one of the easiest ways to ensure that your indoor air quality is up to par and your ductways are damage free.
But there are some situations that call for additional duct cleaning:
- You’ve moved into a new home.
- After a renovation or home construction.
- You notice the smell of mold or other strange odors.
- You notice or hear animal activity in your ducts.
- There is visible mold or other residues at vents or air registers.
- Your home feels especially dusty.
If you want to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems, regular duct cleaning needs to be part of your annual maintenance plan. Ducts with built-up dust or debris and clogged ducts force your heating equipment to work harder to disperse air effectively.
When you schedule a duct cleaning, it gives our Comfort Techs a chance to inspect your ductwork for cracks, holes, and gaps. This damage to your ducts allows comfort-controlled air to escape out of the ductwork and into unused spaces of your home.
Clean, well-sealed ducts help improve your furnace and air conditioner efficiency. And regular air duct maintenance is the best way to make sure your ducts are performing their best.
The warm or cool air that passes through your HVAC system is distributed throughout your home via air ducts. What’s inside these ducts affects the quality of the air you and your family are breathing. Common impurities found inside ductwork include:
- Mold, fungi, & bacteria
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Animal droppings
- Bugs & rodents
Regular duct cleaning service from Star City removes these pollutants from your air supply and ensures you’re breathing clean, fresh air inside your home.
