Deciphering Duct Cleaning

March 19, 2015

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

Most people don’t know all of the benefits a qualified duct cleaning can offer. If you’ve recently undertaken a remodeling project or maybe you moved into an older home, a duct cleaning is something you’ll want to add to that ever-growing to-do list to make certain 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 note any of the following signs, call the professionals at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling in Des Moines about booking an appointment for a professional duct cleaning.

  • Visible mold growth within your ductwork or any of your HVAC components
  • An abundance of dirt or dust around the house, created by a recent remodel or the age of the home
  • If you start seeing any evidence of insects or rodents in your ducts

There are a number of benefits to having a professional duct cleaning things like, the peace of mind that the air in your home is clean and won’t be adversely impacting your health, but another advantage is that it could help improve 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 more improved the efficiency, the lower your utility bills.

Staying healthy and comfortable in your home is as important to us as it is to you. We want to help you improve your indoor air quality and your energy efficiency in the along the way.
