When searching online for duct cleaning information around Binghamton NY, you’re likely to come across conflicting and misleading information. There is no shortage of unsubstantiated claims regarding the pros and cons of having your ductwork professionally cleaned. There are very specific instances where you’ll want to have your ducts cleaned, including rodent infestation, mold growth, or remodeling work performed on your home. Beyond these specific cases, there is evidence that there are very real benefits to having your ductwork cleaned before or after each season.
What Binghamton Duct Cleaning Services Won’t Do
1. Significantly Lower Your Energy Cost
One big claim by other duct cleaning services is that you’ll see a significant reduction in your energy costs due to better airflow throughout your home. This is simply untrue. Some companies will go even further to insist duct cleaning will make your home more “green” and reduce your carbon footprint. The truth is that only a substantial blockage in your ductwork will cause your HVAC system to operate in a less efficient manner.
2. Cure or Prevent Illness or Sickness
While having the ducts in your Binghamton NY home professionally cleaned will remove bacteria such as mold from your ducts, it will not prevent the spread of viruses and other common causes of sickness. The dust that settles in your air ducts is normally not a threat to the safety of you and your family. The EPA states on its website:
“Duct cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems. Neither do studies conclusively demonstrate that particle (e.g., dust) levels in homes increase because of dirty air ducts.”
The most effective way to prevent the spread of illness in your home is to change your HVAC system air filters regularly and have a stand alone or integrated indoor air quality system installed in your home.
3. Make Your Binghamton Home 100% Contaminate-free
While duct cleaning is an effective method of removing dust, mold, and bacteria from your ducts, there are many other ways that contaminants can enter your home. Each time you and your family enters your home, you can track in allergens, bacteria, and particles into your living environment.
In addition, burning wood, candles, cooking, entertaining guests, and other activities can reduce the quality of the air in your home. Having your ductwork cleaned regularly will not prevent you from getting airborne sickness, but will help reduce the risk of molds growing in your ducts which can cause illness over prolonged periods if left untreated.
What’s Hiding in Your Ductwork?
Just as with any part of your Binghamton house, dust, debris and allergens will accumulate in the ductwork of your home. The process of cleaning your duct work is much more complicated than cleaning your rugs or your furniture and specialized equipment is needed to get all the bad stuff out. This is why homeowners across the greater Binghamton and Ithaca regions partner with ANC Heating & Air Conditioning to ensure their ductwork is clean and the air quality in their home is safe and clear. As a BBB-accredited company and the only HVAC company rated #1 28 years in a row by the Readers Choice Awards™, we pride ourselves in our quality air duct cleaning services.

What separates your service from Other Duct Cleaning Services in Binghamton?

It is for this reason that we’ve invested in the most advanced vacuum system available in the duct cleaning market. This ensures all mold, dust, dust mites, allergens, and other contaminates are vacuumed directly into our collection system outside your home, and not released into the air inside your home. Below you can see our all-new, state-of-the-art duct cleaning truck below as it makes its way back to our Binghamton facility from our west coast manufacturer.
