Gaithersburg, Maryland (webnewswire) March 14, 2020 – Presidential Heating & Air, a Maryland HVAC company, recently released a blog educating readers on the benefits of a duct inspection. Maintaining your air ducts is an important part of home care that is often overlooked but can have important benefits for your family.

Keeping your home’s air ducts clean and functioning smoothly requires minimal attention. Your air ducts should be inspected by a professional on a yearly basis, though more frequent checkups may be needed if you spot mold or if your family seems to be developing new allergies. Cleaning your air ducts on a regular basis can improve your heating and cooling system’s efficiency, meaning that it won’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable. This can help you save money on your energy bills. It also provides a number of health benefits, including reducing illness and the presence of dust due to better air filtration. This can be particularly important if anyone in your family has trouble breathing or gets sick easily.

While a professional should be the one to conduct thorough cleanings, a few simple steps can help homeowners maintain their ductwork on their own. Remove grates from the registers and vacuum them out on a regular basis to remove debris and dust. Changing the air filters every two to three months can also help keep your air clean and your system working well. Finally, check air return vents and registers on the floor, as blockages from dropped items, pet hair, and other debris can cause issues. Keeping an eye out for changes in your air system’s quality will also help you identify potential concerns before they become unmanageable.

Professional HVAC technicians have the skills and experience needed to give your air ducts a thorough inspection and cleaning each year.
