Deciphering Duct Cleaning

March 19, 2015

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

Most people don’t realize all of the benefits an experienced duct cleaning can offer. If you’ve recently embarked upon a remodeling project or perchance you moved into an older home, a duct cleaning is something you’ll want to add to that ever-growing to-do list to ensure the air throughout your home is pure and healthy.

There are a variety of flags you can look out for to demonstrate that it is time to make an appointment for a duct cleaning. If you notice any of the following signs, call the professionals at Lycoming Heating Company in Williamsport about scheduling a professional duct cleaning.

  • Evident mold growth within your ductwork or any of your HVAC components
  • An abundance of dirt or dust around the house, generated 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 negatively impacting your health, but another advantage is that it could help enhance the efficiency of your HVAC system. Contaminants in your ductwork and HVAC unit cause it to work harder, which negatively impacts the efficiency and life of your system. The higher the efficiency, the lower your utility bills.
