When fall and winter roll in, most of us will be spending more time indoors enjoying the warmth and comfort of our homes. But did you know that now is the best time to get the air ducts in your home cleaned by one of our licensed HVAC technicians?
When is the best time to get a duct cleaning?
The perfect time of year to get a duct cleaning here in the Crystal Lake, IL area is during the fall. A duct cleaning in the summer can cause humidity to accumulate in the ducts of your home and create the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. Humidity trapped in your ductwork — along with other contaminants — can really affect the people in your home who suffer from allergies as well.
Home duct cleaning can help improve indoor air quality
The indoor air quality in your home can be compromised due to dust and debris lodged in the nooks and crannies of your duct system. Every time that your furnace or AC is running, this debris gets forced through your home. Over time, the contaminants can build up and cause blockages in your ductwork. Remember, poor air quality affects everyone, including our pets. If you or anyone in your household suffer from allergies or asthma, routine duct cleanings can be a great solution to reduce these contaminants that can be hiding in your ductwork.
Duct cleaning can improve the life of your HVAC system
Blockages in your ducts — even partial blockages — create a reduction in airflow as there is less space for the air to flow inside the ducts. This can cause your HVAC system to work harder than it needs to, causing more frequent breakdowns and repairs as well as high utility bills.
How our duct cleaning process is different
Our professional home duct cleaning process ensures that you will have clean and fresh air flowing throughout your home. We use compressed air and a deep cleaning brush to dislodge dirt and debris, along with a cleaning solution to help sanitize the air. You may have noticed there are a lot of “cheap” duct cleaning options out there, but be careful. Many cheaper services are only a “surface-level” type of cleaning, and do not help to truly break loose and remove the debris hiding deep within your ducts like ours does!
If you’ve noticed your home has been dustier lately or see dust build up around the air vents of your home, this is a sign you are due for a duct cleaning. You can trust our technicians to get the job done right and offer you solutions for cleaner air for your home and family.
