Having a clean home is a great feeling. Knowing that your home air is clean is an even better feeling. Having your air ducts cleaned regularly is key to making 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 goes hand-in-hand with our quality of life. So we mean business when we say that air-duct cleaning is a must.
Air duct cleaning involves the general maintenance and washing of various heating and cooling system components, like the supply and return air ducts of your system. As time goes on, 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 to keep your indoor air clean and fresh.
Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Keeping your air ducts clean comes with an array of benefits, first and foremost being the improvement of your indoor air quality. Dirty air can bog down your home, 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 , which will shorten its lifespan. Clean HVAC systems use less energy so they save you money on your energy bill. Better indoor air quality keeps your heating and air conditioning system safe from corrosion and protects your HVAC investment.
Why You Should Get Your Ducts Cleaned
Having your air ducts cleaned is one of the simplest ways 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 many different health problems. You may notice the most common problems include eye and nose irritation, coughing, asthma, and especially allergic reactions. Breathing easy starts with having your air ducts cleaned. 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.
Another important topic to discuss in air-duct cleaning is duct sealing. Duct sealing closes any air leaks that may have occurred over years of work and has the potential to save you hundreds of dollars and so much energy. It’s a great way to end home pollutant circulation once and for all.
