According to NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association), the cheapest way to extend the life of your ventilation system and improve indoor air quality is by changing and upgrading your air filters every month. In addition to regular air filter changes, NADCA also recommends regular air duct cleaning.
Think of your heating and ventilation (HVAC) system as the lungs of your home. And just like you wouldn’t stand in a dust storm or smoky room and breathe dirty air into your lungs (or at least we hope you wouldn’t!), you shouldn’t have your ventilation system circulate dirty air throughout your home, house or office.
When air ducts get clogged with debris, dirt, and dust, it takes longer for your system to cool or heat your home, meaning that it has to work harder to produce the desired temperature. The harder and longer an HVAC system has to continually work means that components start to malfunction and wear out more quickly.
Remember, that an air conditioning and heating system plays a key role in indoor air quality. When preventive system maintenance, including regular air duct cleaning is performed, this ensures that your system will work more efficiently. In the long run, you’ll be saving money on your monthly utility bills and extending the lifespan of your system.

Just as air pollution damages the outdoor environment it can negatively impact the quality of air you breathe in your home, house and office. This is especially true if your air filters aren’t changed regularly or if you have not had air duct cleaning completed in the last two years.
Professional air duct cleaning eliminates almost all of the debris, dirt, and dust that has accumulated in your ducts and vents and keeps these particles from circulating throughout your home when running your ventilation system.
When air duct cleaning is not performed on a regular basis, the allergens, bacteria, dust and debris that are present in outdoor air are spread throughout your home and office every time the ventilation system turns on. Over time, dirty indoor air can take a toll on a person’s health especially young children and the senior/elderly population.
An improperly cared for ventilation system can also cause additional discomfort for those individuals who have asthma or seasonal allergies. As years go by, all of these particles accumulate in your ducts and vents and can aggravate or contribute to respiratory problems.
Remember that every time you take a breath, the particles in the air enter your nasal passages. Indoor air comes from the outdoors but is re-circulated constantly and picks up even more debris. Based on this, your indoor air and how often it is cleaned should be of utmost importance to you and your family.
