Air duct systems become full of contaminants over time. All sorts of allergens such as dust, pollens and mold spores, as well as small animals and their waste products, can be infesting your ductwork.
What Does That Mean?
Needless to say, the last thing you'll want to be doing is breathing these things on a daily basis. Well, aside from the gross factor, dirty air ducts can also lead to various respiratory problems. Getting them professionally cleaned can greatly reduce that risk, and will help to ensure the well-being of yourself and your family members.
Maintaining Optimal Air Quality
Roughly 40 pounds of dust gets produced in a typical household every year. All that dust will circulate through your home as much as seven times a day. These particles, along with pet dandruff and various other pollutants, will be inhaled by you and your family members. Obviously, breathing clean fresh air is much better. Professional Air duct cleaning will make sure of that.
Aggravating Respiratory Issues
In homes where respiratory issues, like allergies, are prevalent, much of the blame can be placed on the various pollutants that are circulating around your home. Breathing in polluted indoor air will lead to the onset of allergy attacks. Clearing the various contaminants from the home’s HVAC system will help reduce the amount and severity of these attacks. Cleaning a home’s ductwork system can also be beneficial for those suffering from asthma.
Optimizing Your System's Performance
It has been repeatedly stated that possibly between 25 to 40 percent of the energy used to heat or cool a home is wasted. When pollutants attach themselves to the interior walls of your home's air duct system, they restrict some of the air flow, and the system must compensate in order be able to properly heat or cool your house. A system that is forced to work harder over longer periods of time is going to suffer a variety of issues. Overworking your heating and cooling systems will also cause them to have much shorter lifespans.
Professional air duct cleaning will ensure that your HVAC system does not have to struggle as hard in order to maintain the indoor temperature that you desire. A clean, well-maintained system will last longer and save money in the long run.
