Knowing that your home is clean is a great feeling. Knowing that you have clean air in your homeis 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 refers to 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 exacerbate 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 provides many benefits to you and your home, a key benefit being healthier indoor air quality. Dirty air can bog down your home, but a clean air-duct system keeps your home healthy and smelling fresh. Clean air ducts are also more energy efficient. Contaminants in the air ducts can force your heating and cooling system to work harder , which will shorten its lifespan. Clean HVAC systems are more efficient and therefore cost less money out of your pocket. Better indoor air quality keeps your heating and cooling system clear of corrosion and protects your HVAC investment.
Why You Should Get Your Ducts Cleaned
Having your air ducts cleaned is one of the most simple things you can do to keep your home clean and your body healthy. Dust and other contaminants are circulated thorugh your air ducts five to seven times a day, which quickly builds up and can contribute to a number of health problems. You may notice 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.
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 can save homeowners potentially hundreds of dollars and lots of energy. It’s a great way to end home pollutant circulation once and for all. Ask a Service Experts professional to check for leaks when they clean your air ducts and let you know if you could benefit from having your ducts sealed. Be comfortable and happy with clean and sealed air ducts.
