When you think about investments you may picture the stock market and traditional investment vehicles like bonds or stocks, which is a pretty narrow definition of the word ‘investment’. Or you may even picture more abstract investments, such as investing in your health by joining a gym or investing in your family’s future by completing a degree or training course.
But investing is really putting time, energy and money into something that pays off later. That can be absolutely anything that pays off later. And your investment strategy should include your home since it’s one of your largest purchases, one of the most significant ways you will build wealth, and hopefully the place you spend the most time and which brings you and your family the most joy.
Although duct cleaning doesn’t often come to mind when people think about how to invest wisely in their future, we argue that it should. And here are some great reasons to make that investment:
1. Duct Cleaning is an investment in higher home values
When you have your ductwork cleaned, it shows that you have committed to maintaining and improving your home. We would be willing to bet that if you’re cleaning your duct work, then you’re probably also taking good care of the rest of your home, too. Potential homebuyers will see this as well as the results of all that maintenance and chances are good that it will increase your home’s value.
2. Duct cleaning is an investment in better health
When you have your ductwork cleaned, you reduce the possibility of airborne fungi, viruses, and bacteria moving through the ductwork and making your family sick. You also reduce the allergens floating around in the air. Your whole family will thank you for prioritizing their health and decreasing doctor’s bills.
Note also that if anyone in your family struggles with an impairment of their immune system or is recovering from surgery, that duct cleaning can help ensure they stay healthy.
3. Duct Cleaning is an investment in accident prevention
This one is actually geared a little more towards dryer vent cleaning than duct cleaning, but you get the picture. Since blocked dryer vents are a leading cause of house fires, having your dryer vent cleaned during your duct cleaning appointment is a wise investment in your family’ safety.
4. Duct Cleaning is an investment in energy savings
When your duct work is cleaned, your entire HVAC system operates much more efficiently. And HVAC efficiency = lower energy bills and more money back in your pocket.
5. Duct Cleaning is an investment in quality time
Most homes report a reduced need to dust after having their ductwork cleaned. Pair that up with the money you saved on your energy bill and now you not only have some extra free time that you won’t be spending dusting, but you also have some extra cash to drop on doing something fun with your family.
