Deciphering Duct Cleaning

March 19, 2015

If you’ve encountered respiratory discomfort you’ve presumably made appointments with your doctor, but the appointment you may not have thought to make that could really make a difference is for a duct cleaning.

Most people don’t realize all of the benefits an experienced duct cleaning can offer. If you’ve recently embarked upon a remodeling project or perchance you moved into an older home, a duct cleaning is something you’ll want to add to that ever-growing to-do list to ensure the air throughout your home is clean and healthy.

There are a range of flags you can look out for to prove that it is time to schedule a duct cleaning. If you find any of the ensuing signs, call the professionals at B & G HVAC in Marshalltown about booking an appointment for a professional duct cleaning.

  • Detectable mold growth on the interior of your ductwork or any of your HVAC components
  • Extra dirt or dust around the house, generated by a recent remodel or the age of the home
  • If you notice any evidence of insects or rodents in your ducts

There are many benefits to having a professional duct cleaning such as, the peace of mind that the air in your home is clean and won’t be negatively impacting your health, but another benefit is that it could help enhance the efficiency of your HVAC system. Toxins in your ductwork and HVAC unit cause it to work harder, which adversely effects the efficiency and life of your system. The greater the efficiency, the lower your utility bills.
