Most Huntersville, NC, homeowners give little thought to ductwork. Discreetly concealed behind walls and ceilings or hidden from view in basements and attics, the tubular system quietly distributes heated and cooled air throughout your living space. The trick to keeping it happy is periodic cleaning and sealing. Here are three reasons getting ductwork done is a smart move:

1. You’ll Breathe Easier

Indoor air quality suffers when ductwork is dirty. Dust in your ductwork attracts dust mites that can cause skin rashes. Dirty ductwork can harbor pollen, fungi, pests and pest droppings, pet dander, dead skin, spores, viruses and bacteria, and it all blows into your home whenever the HVAC is running. Duct cleaning makes your living space cleaner and your indoor air healthier.

2. You’ll Improve HVAC Performance

Dirt, dust and debris obstruct airflow and interfere with the distribution of treated air. To get the job done, your HVAC has to work harder and run longer. The upshot is higher energy costs and unnecessary equipment wear and tear. The longer this continues, the greater the damage. Clean ducts allow clear airflow. This reduces energy consumption and prevents unnecessary strain on your equipment.

3. You’ll Save Money

Ductwork sealing is as important as ductwork cleaning. Your HVAC has to work harder to compensate for heated and cooled air that’s lost through cracks. Leaks also allow dust mites, pollen, pests, microbes, fungi and other allergens to access your home. According to ENERGY STAR, sealing leaky ducts can reduce energy consumption by up to 30 percent. Sealing ductwork keeps treated air in and unwanted visitors out.
