Air filter replacement vs air duct cleaning
What is the best way to improve the air in your home? Does changing the air filter in your home do enough? Opinions differ on this matter. Some will say that you need to get your air ducts cleaned every so often. Others say that this process is unnecessary. What is definitely agreed upon is that cleaning out your air filters every couple months is the biggest factor in improving the air quality of your home. It is when problems occur that you should consider taking further measures.

Read up on when when professional air duct cleaning is worth it. For example, dust can build up in the air duct and changing the air filter will not do much to fix it. If this happens or other problems occur, then getting your air ducts cleaned is probably a good idea.
An air duct cleaner can at least do a consultation to decide if cleaning out the air ducts is recommended or not.
If you do decide that calling an air duct cleaner is necessary, make sure that you are choosing one that is not trying to scam you. Avoid “blow and go” companies that may do a poor job or who use cheap introductary pricing but then upsell once they get there.
