Why is it important to clean my air ducts?
It is important to make sure your air ducts are clean for two main reasons. Dust and debris buildup is unavoidable and excess debris in your air duct system can decrease the energy efficiency of your system while you pay the same rate for your energy bills. The debris buildup can also contribute to indoor air pollution, which could increase health risks. Cleaning your air ducts is a good way to achieve maximum energy efficiency and assure healthy, breathable air.
