Benefits of Air Duct cleaning
No ductwork? No problem. Even homes without ductwork can be filled with comfort and peace of mind thanks to American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning ductless systems. That’s because these energy-efficient systems forgo the ducts in favor of a pair of indoor and outdoor units to heat and cool your home.
Have a look at the ductless air conditioner and heat pump units that are available. And remember that your comfort level as well as the energy-efficiency and price levels will vary based on your individual needs.
A clean HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature and will require less energy to run, saving you money on your heating and cooling costs.
Why You Should get your ducts cleaned
According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), as much as 40 pounds of dust is created annually in an average six-room home. Dust, dander, and other air pollutants are pulled into the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system and circulated through air ducts.
Three signs that you should clean your air ducts
While there is no evidence that duct cleaning will prevent health problems, there are certain conditions in which duct cleaning is recommended.
- There is visible mold growth inside your ducts or on other parts of your heating and cooling equipment.
- Ducts are infested with rodents or insects.
- Ductwork system is clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or you see particles being released into the air from your supply vents.

In addition to keeping your duct system clean, it is also important to make sure that your air ducts are properly sealed. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, duct sealing can prevent pollutants like dust, fumes from household chemicals, and insulation particles, from entering your ducts and circulating through the air in your home.
Leaky ducts can reduce the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20 percent. Air duct sealing can help increase the energy efficiency of your system and lower your energy costs. We may also recommend insulating your ducts as an additional way to improve comfort and HVAC system efficiency.
