Ask Rick: Why Should I Get My Air Ducts Cleaned?

Dear Rick, the Bradenton air conditioning specialist who tuned up my AC unit mentioned it would be a good idea to get my air ducts cleaned. Why is that important?

– Just Wondering

Dear Wondering,

The specialist you spoke to was absolutely right. There are two main reasons you want to make sure that regular cleaning of your air ducts by a qualified professional is a part of your home maintenance.

  1. Efficiency of your AC unit. If your air ducts are dirty, your system has to work harder and use more energy, which makes it less efficient. Although the system uses air filters, regular wear and tear means that the air ducts will still get dirty. A thorough cleaning of the air ducts in your hope will help your AC unit run more smoothly and with less energy.
  2. Indoor Air Quality. The world outside your home contains many contaminants — dust, pollen, animal dander, or traces of chemicals — that can soil your air ducts and enter your home environment through regular use of your AC system. While these contaminants are usually harmless, someone with a more sensitive respiratory system can be affected if the indoor air quality is contaminated via dirty air ducts. A thorough cleaning can help improve your indoor air quality and help you breathe easier, in more ways than one.
