Your ductwork acts as the highway for delivering cool air into your home. When maintained properly, it does the job of delivering clean, fresh air; when it’s not, leaks, holes and cracks can develop, and dust, dirt and debris can build up, causing an array of problems. However, when you schedule duct cleaning in Decatur with Air Conditioning Experts, Inc., you will not only get the benefits of clean ductwork; you’ll also be made aware of any possible problems that exist with your ductwork.
Benefits of Professional Duct Cleaning
- Reduction of allergens – air duct cleaning can’t remove every allergen particle, but it can remove a lot of allergens, including dust, dirt, pollen and mold and mildew spores.
- Less stress on your system – when dirt and dust continuously build inside your vents, the air flow can decrease over time. Less air flow means your system has to work harder to achieve the cooling you need. By cleaning and removing this build-up, you help lessen the strain on your system.
- Better energy efficiency – similar to above, when your system is stressed, it has to use more energy to operate. Cleaning your ductwork properly can help with better efficiency, which you’ll see in your monthly bills.
How Often Should Ductwork Be Cleaned?
The industry average is once every 5 years, but if you have any of the following, you may want to consider doing it every 3-5 years:

- Prior to moving into a new home
