The cold weather has arrived and Minnesota residents have no doubt been running their furnaces for months now. Have you noticed any warning signs that could indicate the need for furnace duct cleaning at your home? The EPA recommends that you have your ducts cleaned if you notice:
- Excessive amounts of dust buildup.
- Construction dust.
- Pet dander.
Notice any of these signs? Then you absolutely need to have your furnace ducts cleaned as soon as possible.
Don’t see the signs but still wondering if you should have your ducts cleaned for peace of mind? Contact the experts in furnace duct cleaning for the Twin Cities, Vent Guys, and we’ll help you make an informed decision on whether or not to schedule a furnace duct cleaning.
Dust, pet fur, debris, pathogens, allergens, chemicals, dust mites—all of these contaminants can become trapped inside your air ducts over time, and as the air moves through the system, it passes through these dirty ducts, redistributing the dirt throughout your home or depositing it in the ducts for it to build up over time. Air duct cleaning or furnace duct cleaning can dramatically reduce the number of contaminants present in your home’s indoor air.
Cleaning away dirt and debris trapped in your furnace system will also greatly improve your furnace’s efficiency. This happens by increasing air flow within the system and allowing it to distribute air throughout the house more quickly and with less effort. Regular cleaning of the air ducts also minimizes dust and debris entering the furnace, thereby helping to prevent clogging of the unit.
Think about it—fewer debris in your system means your system has to strain less to blow warm air into your home. And when your furnace doesn’t have to overexert itself to warm your home, you spend less money on monthly heating bills.
