As the chilly winds of winter begin to blow, it’s time to think about more than just changing your wardrobe. Cold weather means it’s time to crank up the furnace and feel its delightful warmth. But before you do that, there is one important thing you need to do first — get your air ducts cleaned out. Here are 3 reasons why it’s essential to have those ducts cleaned before the winter makes its appearance.

Air quality

Have you ever noticed when you turn your furnace on for the first time for the season, there’s an unusual and unpleasant odor emanating from the vents? Maybe you thought something was wrong with your furnace at first. Your furnace may be fine but your air ducts are the problem. Over the last several months, dirt, dust, and grime collect in your vents. When you turn your furnace on, the heat begins to burn up the dirt and blow it right into the air. That means you are essentially breathing in dust, dirt, and other allergens. By getting your air ducts cleaned out, you eliminate all the grime from the vents and ductwork, thus, enhancing your air quality.

Cleaner environment

Not only will the air you breathe be of better quality, but your home will be a lot cleaner too! Just think about what happens to all that dirt and dust that comes shooting out of your air vents when you turn on the furnace. It floats in the air and clings to the walls, rugs, and furniture. When you clean the air ducts out, you are helping keep your home cleaner.

Save on the utility bills

Did you know that when dirt is clogging up your air ducts, the heat cannot flow efficiently through your vents? The dirt, dust, grime, and debris gets in the way of proper airflow and circulation. So, that means your furnace is going to work harder to heat your home and your energy costs will increase, as well. Clean out those air ducts and watch your energy costs go down.
