Relaxing in your clean home is a great feeling. Knowing that your home air is clean is an even better feeling. Clean air ducts make your home safer and more comfortable for you and your family. Since we breathe in around 10,000 liters of air a day, the quality of the air in our homes is directly proportionate to our quality of life. We must do what we can to protect our indoor air, and air duct cleaning is an easy place to start.
Air duct cleaning includes the general maintenance and washing of various heating and cooling system components, including the supply and return air ducts of your system. It’s just a matter of time before HVAC components get contaminated with pollen, dust particles, mold (if moisture is present), and other debris. These can bring on allergy symptoms and affect your health in other negative ways, so make air-duct cleaning a priority and control what you and your family are breathing into your lungs.
Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Keeping your air ducts clean is beneficial in many ways, most notable being greatly improved indoor air quality. Dirty air can fill your home with contaminants and bad smells, but a clean air-duct system provides a healthy environment while eliminating odors. Clean air ducts can also improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system. Contaminants in the air ducts can lead your heating and cooling system to work harder to run at its normal pace, shortening its lifespan. Clean HVAC systems are more efficient so they save you money on your energy bill. Higher indoor air quality keeps your heating and cooling system free of corrosion and protects your HVAC investment.
Why You Should Get Your Ducts Cleaned
Cleaning your air ducts is one of the easiest practices to keep your home clean and healthy. When contaminants build up in your air ducts and are recirculated five to seven times a day they can contribute to different health problems. Some of the most common problems include eye and nose irritation, coughing, asthma, and especially allergic reactions. As soon as you have your air ducts cleaned you can breathe easy. It’s important to note that when air ducts are being cleaned, all components of the system should be completely inspected and cleaned, including cooling coils, fans, heat exchangers, registers, grilles, diffusers, and air ducts.
When having your air ducts cleaned, it’s a good idea to have them sealed too. This sealing technology closes any air leaks that may have occurred over years of work and has the potential to save you hundreds of dollars and a lot of energy. It’s a great way to end home pollutant circulation once and for all.
