For homeowners, their air conditioning units, heat pumps, and furnaces are top-of-mind, since they can see them working and turn them on seasonally. But, what about the part of your HVAC system that’s in use all year round? Your air ducts need attention, too, and if you’ve been passing on air duct cleaning for years, you could be seeing worsening indoor air quality. In contrast, clean air ducts can help your home be easier to breathe in.

In this blog, we’ll review a few reasons why you should call the professionals at Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning for air duct cleaning and indoor air quality testing.

Better air quality

Your HVAC and air ducts recirculate the air in your home, and you may be surprised by the pollutants that air contains. It is not unusual for indoor air to contain particles of:

  • Pollen
  • Dust and dust mites
  • Dead skin cells
  • Pet dander
  • Mice or insect droppings
  • Bacteria

Having any or all of these in the air of your home is actually quite normal, but—at the same time—you probably do not want to be inhaling these pollutants on a regular basis.

Reduce your symptoms

Allergies and asthma can develop at any age, and if you or anyone in your family suffer from these or other respiratory conditions, you know the importance of having clean air to breathe. Some people may find that the air in their homes is what causes their difficulty breathing.

After you have your air ducts professionally cleaned by the pros at Trahan’s, you may feel some relief in your respiratory problems. You can literally breathe easier because those allergens in your home may be eliminated.

The sweet smell of success

Another reason to have your air ducts cleaned is to remove odd or unpleasant odors from your home. With a buildup of dust and dirt in your air duct system, these odors can be trapped, leaving a lingering odor that does not go away even after you have cleaned.

If you have noticed excess dust on your air filters or around your vents, you can imagine what the inside of your air ducts looks like. Clean air ducts mean a cleaner—and better-smelling—home from the inside-out.

Keep it dry

A humid climate or major plumbing leak may mean you are more likely to have a mold problem in your home. Air duct cleaning can remove that extra moisture that may accumulate and encourage mold growth. It might also be a good idea to talk to your Trahan’s technician about a dehumidifier for your home.
