Many people at this time of year consider getting their air ducts cleaned as they switch from air conditioning to heating their home. Is it a good idea? The short answer is yes. Here’s why.
The air ducts in your home provide a very important function. If the carpets in your home are the largest filter, the air ducts are your home’s lungs. The air inside your home circulates through the air handler multiple times a day. This air circulating through your home is the same air that you and your family breathes every day. Don’t you want it to be the cleanest it can be?
Air duct cleaning is the removal of dust and contaminants in your duct system. If you ducts haven’t been cleaned in a while, allergens can form causing breathing problems to exist. Proper cleaning uses vacuum equipment and some form of agitation to dislodge dirt and allergens to be removed from your duct work providing you with cleaner air. Watch our video here for real results!
Apart from that there are other benefits:
- Creates a cleaner living environment. As I mentioned earlier, the air that you breathe is circulated through your ducts. But in addition, these contaminants can find themselves on your furniture, clothing, and flooring. Giving it a thorough cleaning will ensure a healthier living environment.
- Reduces allergens and irritants. In addition to dust, your air ducts can contain allergens and micro-organisms. These are caused by pet dander, bacteria, pollen, mold spores, and many other microscopic particles. By removing them from your duct system, you go a long way in keeping your family healthy this winter.
- Removes unpleasant smells. Pets, cooking odors, paint fumes, tobacco odors are just a few things which can cause unpleasant odors throughout the home. Often these odors can become trapped in your ducts and will need to be removed resulting in a fresher smelling home.
- Improves air flow efficiency. Ductwork and registers that have a heavy buildup of dust and contaminants will reduce the air flow efficiency of your system. This will result in the air handler working extra hard to maintain your desired temperature. By cleaning the ducts and registers will ensure that there are no obstructions limiting the air flow of the system. This will result in greater efficiency, and lower operating costs.
