What’s The Point Of Having My Air Ducts Cleaned?
There are two very beneficial reasons for why you should consider having the air ducts in your home cleaned- Indoor Air Quality and Savings on your Energy Costs.
Did you know that in a basic six-room home, approximately 40 pounds of dust is created each year, contributed by just basic everyday living? The heating and cooling system serve as the lungs of your home-they both take in air and breathe air out.
Contaminants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals, are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day. The contaminants build up and re-circulate which could have an unhealthy affect on you, or others in your home, especially if anyone suffers from respiratory problems.
No More Wasting 25-40 Percent Of The Energy Used To Heat/Cool Your Home! When your home’s HVAC system is clean, it will not have to work so hard to maintain the temperature you want in your home. Less energy means more savings!
When Should I Have My Air Ducts Cleaned? You should consider having your ducts cleaned as part of your regular home maintenance.
Is There Anything That Might Suggest Having My Air Ducts Cleaned Today? Absolutely! You should consider having your air ducts cleaned if any of the following five conditions have recently occurred in your home:
RENOVATION If you have recently remodeled your home and it included asbestos abatement, lead paint removal, or a significant amount of dust, cleaning your air ducts will ensure that none of the dust or debris is lodged inside your ductwork.
ANIMALS You should have your HVAC and ductwork cleaned if you have recently had an animal nest or infestation removed from your ducts.
MOLD If you discover a visible mold growth inside your ductwork, you should have your ducts and HVAC system cleaned.
CONTAMINANTS You should have your air ducts cleaned if you notice debris, pet hair, odors, or other contaminants being released into the rooms of your home, after the registers have been cleaned and vacuumed.
ILLNESS In the unfortunate event that someone in your family is suffering from an unexplained allergy-related illness, and you’ve taken every other possible step to decontaminate your home, you may want to consider having your ducts cleaned to see if the HVAC system was the culprit.
