Clean Air In Home
Air ducts are conduits or passages used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning to deliver and remove air. The needed airflows include, for example, supply air, return air, and exhaust air. Ducts commonly also deliver ventilation air as part of the supply air. As such, air ducts are one method of ensuring acceptable indoor air quality as well as thermal comfort.
EPA Recommends Air Duct Cleanings
The position of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is that “If no one in your household suffers from allergies or unexplained symptoms or illnesses and if, after a visual inspection of the inside of the ducts, you see no indication that your air ducts are contaminated with large deposits of dust or mold (no musty odor or visible mold growth), having your air ducts cleaned is probably unnecessary. Duct cleaning may be personally justifiable for that very reason: occupants may not want to have their house air circulated through a duct passage that is not as clean as the rest of the house.
Duct Cleaning Is Unique to Every Home
We have extensive knowledge about the extensive benefits of air duct cleaning. Since conditions in every home are different, it is impossible to generalize about the condition of the air ducts in your home and how beneficial cleaning will be. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) advises cleaning of air ducts every 4 years. Indoor air pollution has been identified as a top environmental health risk in the US and air duct cleaning has shown to greatly reduce indoor air contaminants, making your home a healthier place to live.
Dust Reduction and Lower Bills
It’s a fact of life that dust, debris, and hair build up in your air ducts. Removing it creates healthier airflow and reduces allergens in your home. In addition to improving your indoor air quality, duct cleaning also ensures that less debris falls back into your heating system, prolonging the life of your equipment. In short, air duct cleaning will help your heating and cooling equipment run more efficiently and save money on your energy bills. 9 out of 10 system failures are caused by dirt and dust. One of the functions of the fan, located inside of your air handler, is to keep the heat exchanger cool. Accumulated dirt and debris can reduce the CFM (cubic feet of air per minute) by as much as 50%. This is the most common cause of cracks in heat exchangers.
Regular Air Duct Cleaning makes A Safe Home
By having your system cleaned, you may prevent premature breakdown of your heating and cooling system. Your home should be a safe place for all who live there, but the air quality in a home is usually much more polluted than outdoors even on the poorest air quality days. This is why keeping air ducts clean is so important. You work to keep the rest of your home clean and neat, so professional cleaning of air ducts should be part of the maintenance of your home. Regular air duct cleaning improves indoor air quality by removing irritants that build up inside air ducts over time.
By the time we leave your home, you’ll already be breathing in the difference.
