Is Duct Cleaning Worth it?

03.30.20

Having your ducts professionally cleaned by Stuart Pro results in better indoor air quality and an HVAC system that has better airflow and runs more efficiently. It could also mean a decrease in your energy bills and fewer colds and respiratory problems for your family, which is a great concern at this time.

How do I know if my air ducts need cleaning?

  1. There is visible dust on vent covers and registers.
  2. You haven’t changed your air filter in months (or even longer!)
  3. Airflow is inconsistent throughout your home.
  4. Mold is evident in or around your HVAC system.
  5. There are noises in the ductwork.

If indoor air quality is important to you, then having your ducts cleaned is a good idea.

A shocking statistic by the EPA: Indoor air hazardous pollutant levels can be up to 70 times greater than in the outdoor air.

Dirty ducts breed bacteria, fungus, mold, mildew, and other microbes that are unhealthy for you and your family. And then, when the air or heat is turned on, those contaminants are spewed into your home. This can be particularly detrimental to asthma and allergy sufferers, children and the elderly, and those prone to respiratory illnesses.
