Before long, the scorching summer weather will arrive in the Camp Verde, AZ area, which means that it will soon be time to start preparing your household for the hot season. While there are many important tasks for a homeowner to get their house ready for the change in weather, one of the most beneficial is professional duct cleaning.

If you haven’t had your household ductwork cleaned and inspected in several years, you shouldn’t procrastinate any longer. Having this service performed before the summer can help to ensure that your living space remains comfortable, efficient, and functional despite the sweltering Arizona heat. There are some notable advantages of scheduling duct cleaning before the summer.

1. Improved Indoor Air Quality

Regularly having your air ducts cleaned will make a huge difference in the quality of the air that you and your family breathe. Over time, various contaminants will accumulate inside your ductwork, including dust, mold spores, pest droppings, and lots of random debris. Then, when you have your AC unit circulating cool air during the summer, many of those contaminant particles will be picked up by the airflow. That will allow all kinds of irritants to be spread around your dwelling and into the air that you’re breathing every day.

When you schedule duct cleaning by our expert team at Goettl's High Desert Mechanical, we’ll thoroughly clean all of the contaminants out of your ductwork. This will help to keep your indoor air fresh all year long. The difference will be especially noticeable if anyone in your family has allergies, asthma, or any other respiratory issues.

2. Elimination of Unpleasant Odors

One of the more annoying things about dirty ductwork is that it will often cause unpleasant smells throughout the house. When contaminants like mold and pest droppings are present inside the air ducts, those nasty odors will inevitably be carried to every area of your living space — especially when your air conditioner is running during the summer months.

As the weather starts to warm up, you may begin to notice strange smells that become worse whenever you have the AC turned on. If this is the case, it’s likely a sign that your air ducts need to be cleaned. Once the contaminants that are causing the stench have been cleaned out, your dwelling should immediately start to smell fresher.

3. Reduced Cooling Costs

Many Camp Verde residents end up spending a ton of money on their cooling bills during the hot season. If you have your AC cranked up frequently, your monthly electricity costs will certainly rise, but there’s no reason that they have to get out of hand. If you have your air ducts professionally cleaned before the summer, it can potentially save you money.

As more and more contaminant particles build up inside your ductwork, they start to create obstructions to the airflow of your HVAC system. So, whenever you’re running the AC, your cooling system will have to work much harder to consistently push cold air through. The harder the appliance has to work, the more electricity it will use, which will be reflected in your monthly energy bills. However, if your air ducts are clean, your AC unit will have clear pathways to circulate air, which will help prevent it from being overworked and wasting energy.

4. Improved Household Comfort

During the Arizona summer, it can be tough to keep your home consistently comfortable, but having your ducts cleaned can make a difference. The more that your ductwork becomes packed with dust and dirt, the harder it becomes for your air conditioner to do its job. As the AC unit works to circulate cold air throughout the home, the contaminants will block the airflow. This can prevent the conditioned air from being evenly distributed around your living space.

If your air ducts are overdue for professional cleaning, you may start noticing that it takes an unusually long time for your air conditioner to cool your house down this summer. You may also notice hot and cold spots around your home as the cool air will be obstructed from reaching certain rooms. After a thorough duct cleaning performed by our team at Goettl's High Desert Mechanical, it will be much easier for your cooling system to distribute cold air, leading to improved comfort for you and your family.

5. Longer HVAC Life Expectancy

If you want your household HVAC system to remain healthy for as long as possible, scheduling regular duct cleaning is essential. The more wear and tear your air conditioning equipment accumulates throughout its lifespan, the sooner it will start to have mechanical problems and need to be replaced.

If your home’s air ducts aren’t cleaned periodically, the dirt and debris will force your AC unit to work much harder than what should be necessary. This will put additional mileage on the equipment, which can potentially shorten its lifespan. As a result, you may end up having to invest several thousand dollars in a replacement unit years earlier than you otherwise would.

6. Clearing Out Pet Dander

If you have pets in your household, it’s even more important to get your ducts cleaned regularly. With cats or dogs in your home, hair and dander will frequently end up floating around in the air, which means that quite a bit of it will accumulate inside the air ducts. This can ultimately cause lots of discomfort for anyone in your family who suffers from allergy symptoms. During your duct cleaning session, all of the pet hair and dander that’s stuck inside your ductwork will be cleaned out, improving the air quality and comfort of your home.

7. Identifying Ductwork Leaks and Other Problems

One of the biggest benefits of having your air ducts professionally cleaned before the summer is the opportunity to locate and repair any problems with the ductwork. Even though you may not realize it, there could potentially be significant air leaks impacting your ducts. If those leaks aren’t fixed before the summer weather arrives, they will have a major impact on the comfort and energy efficiency of your household.

When our team at Goettl's High Desert Mechanical visits your home to clean your air ducts, they will thoroughly inspect your system. This will allow your ductwork professional to identify any leaks, big or small, and any other damage that needs to be addressed. Then, you’ll be able to get those issues repaired before they can cause significant problems for your home. The longer a leaking air duct is allowed to linger, the more money, discomfort, and hassle that it’s likely to cost.
