The Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning in Salt Lake

The arrival of spring got us thinking about your air ducts — not because they sound just like ducks, though we have been seeing a lot of those lately. No, we are thinking about your ducts because Spring is the perfect time to perform your bi-annual duct cleaning in Salt Lake.

Your ducts circulate the air in your home, meaning the air inside them is the same as the air you breathe in your living space. Unfortunately, when the ducts are dirty, they circulate the dust, as well.

As your premier plumbing, heating, and cooling providers, the team at Action Plumbing wants your family to breathe only clean and healthy air. Here are just a few benefits of a duct cleaning for your Salt Lake home:

Cleaner Living Space

Have you noticed dust on recently cleaned surfaces? The culprit is most likely dirty air ducts. The dust will circulate and infiltrate recently cleaned areas. For this reason, you should have your ducts frequently cleaned. In fact, clean air ducts will help reduce the amount of dust in your home, so you won’t need to dust as often. We call that a win!

Allergen and Irritant Reduction

Allergies, especially seasonal ones, are a growing issue for Salt Lake residences, and surprisingly, the air inside your home can contain more contaminants than the air outside. As a result, your sneezing and itchy eyes can be made worse as the allergens circulate your home.

If you or a family member are sensitive to allergens, be sure to perform your spring duct cleaning to eliminate harmful contaminants such as:

  • Pet Dander
  • Bacteria
  • Mold Spores and Mildew
  • Pollen

Improved Air Flow & Energy Savings

The build-up of dust and other airborne particulates in your ducts can reduce the air flow in your home, decreasing the efficiency of your heating and cooling system. Consequently, your furnace and A/C will need to work harder to regulate the temperature of your home.

On the other hand, a clean system will be more cost-effective, leading to lower heating and cooling bills.

Eliminate Foul Smells

Have you noticed unpleasant odors in your home that just won’t go away? Again, you can blame dirty ducts. Each time your heating and cooling system operates, odors from cleaning, cooking, painting, and even your pets will enter the system and continue to circulate throughout your home. Remove these smells once and for all with a thorough duct cleaning.
