A New Year’s Resolution to Breathe Easier

When it comes to making New Year’s resolutions, most people choose goals to better themselves. Although it is an unusual resolution, improving your home’s indoor air quality is a great goal if you have health in mind for the new year. 

Scheduling one simple service – a duct cleaning in Chambersburg, PA – can make a world of difference in your home’s indoor air quality. You can keep reading to learn more about the benefits of duct cleaning, why you might want to schedule the service in 2024 and also learn other tips for improving your indoor air quality in the coming year.

What Is Duct Cleaning?

A duct cleaning service is just what it sounds like. Our team uses specialized methods and tools to clean out the inside of your ductwork. Usually, we pressurize the system and use a powerful vacuum to suck out a majority of the dust. We can also manually clean inside if the grime is particularly heavy. We can even sanitize the inside of your ductwork during a duct cleaning appointment.

Duct cleaning is often paired with a duct sealing appointment. While your ductwork is pressurized, we can identify holes and broken seals throughout your network of ducts and repair them so they are once again completely airtight. 

How Often Should You Schedule Duct Cleaning?

We recommend that you schedule duct cleaning once every 3-5 years. Any more frequently is potentially harmful to your ductwork since the material and connections are all very fragile. Going much longer than five years can lead to a significant amount of dust and dirt buildup that negatively impacts heating and air conditioning operations as well as reduces your indoor air quality.

Benefits of Duct Cleaning

We’ve already briefly mentioned some of the benefits above. When dust and dirt build up inside of your ductwork, it ultimately mixes in with clean air and blows back out into your home. This cycle can continue until your indoor air quality is very poor. The problem with this is that dirt can attract bacteria, germs, and viruses so that those harmful particles cycle through your home again and again.

But this dust mixing in with clean air can also negatively impact how your heater and air conditioner operate. Airflow needs to be highly streamlined in order to reach your home efficiently. Dust and dirt can interfere with airflow and cause your heater or air conditioner to work harder to meet your heating and cooling needs, ultimately resulting in higher energy costs and added strain.

Other Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality

If you’re looking for more ways to improve your indoor air quality, you may want to think about investing in a whole-house air purifier. The systems are installed inside of your existing ductwork and work around the clock quietly to clean your home’s air, removing more than 99% of all harmful particles that pass through your home.

An indoor air purifier can reduce allergy symptoms and make it less likely that you will get sick. Plus it will help to balance out dust levels around the clock so that your heater and air conditioner can each work more effectively.
