Is Air Duct Cleaning Worth It?

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t spend a whole lot of time thinking about your home’s air ducts. At long as you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer, they’re probably the furthest thing from your mind. Did you know, though, that give your ducts some TLC could save you a lot of frustration down the road? You may have heard of air duct cleaning, but you might not be sure if it’s really worth the money.

Should you have your air ducts cleaned? Here’s some information to help you decide for yourself.

Air Duct Cleaning Services

During a professional duct cleaning, HVAC technicians use specialized vacuums, blowers and brushes to remove dust, dirt and debris from the intake, supply and return ducts throughout your home. Your air handler, registers, fans, grills, motors, coils and housings that make up your HVAC system should also be cleaned at this time.

Removing this debris regularly provides numerous benefits for homeowners:

  • Duct cleaning improves HVAC efficiency. Dust buildup forces HVAC systems to work harder, resulting in decreased efficiency and higher energy bills. Having your ducts cleaned regularly keeps your system running at maximum efficiency.
  • HVAC systems that are kept clean tend to last longer and break down less frequently.
  • Have your ducts professionally cleaned removes airborne particles, allergens, etc., resulting in cleaner indoor air.
  • When you have your air ducts cleaned, an HVAC professional will have an opportunity to detect and correct minor problems before they turn into major disasters.

  • Francis from Nicholson Plumbing and Heating was excellent. He was here to evaluate HVAC in our home. He was very patient and answered all my questions. He is also polite and easy to communicate with him. He explained technical concepts to me in layperson terms!

  • Nicholson offered what is possibly the best customer service I have dealt with in a home repair situation.  I called them because I was looking to replace my very old furnace.  They came out to do an initial estimate, and then came back when I had some further questions about my options.  After installing the furnace, they ran into some problems with my air ducts.  This happened on a Friday, and the problem was fixed by Monday afternoon.  In addition to their excellent service, they did quality work at a fair price.  I would recommend them to anyone looking for an HVAC company in the Framingham area!

  • Recently used these guys because my HVAC unit AC wasn’t working (first hot day of summer).  Showed up on time, wore booties, fixed the unit.  During the visit we talked about how my unit was having problems in the winter – which was resulting in NSTAR service calls of maybe 3-4 times per season (I am on a service plan with them).   He was the first guy to tell me WHY the problem was happening, and HOW to fix it.  I find it strange that all of the NSTAR guys etc. no one took time to point out how to fix the source of the problem…Very professional, smart.  I would use them again, and plan to for the fix on my heating unit!
