Why Duct Cleaning Matters for New Homes
When constructing a new home, dust, debris, and construction materials can accumulate in the ductwork, even if protective measures are taken. This can lead to several problems:
- Reduced Air Quality: Pollutants trapped in the ductwork can compromise indoor air quality, posing health risks for the inhabitants.
- Lower Energy Efficiency: Obstructed airflow can make your HVAC system work harder, reducing energy efficiency and increasing utility bills.
- Shorter System Lifespan: Clogged ducts can result in increased wear and tear on your HVAC system, reducing its lifespan.

The best time to clean your ducts is right before you move in. Doing it too early can be counterproductive, as construction debris might still find its way into the ducts. Our course on “When to Consider Duct Cleaning” provides an in-depth look at timing your duct cleaning effectively.
