One thing is for sure – clean air ducts play an integral role in keeping your home temperature regulated and your system operating smoothly. While it’s not scientifically confirmed that dirty ducts pollute indoor air quality, clean ones certainly don’t. Read on as we clear the mist surrounding the proven benefits of professional air duct cleaning.
Maintaining Better Hygiene
Firstly, by hiring a team of experts to remove dust and contaminants from your air ducts, you will reduce the need to clean and dust your home as often. This is because pollutants from your air ducts usually flow through the air; landing on your furniture, flooring, bedding, and everywhere else. Specialized vacuums will suck in the debris, dust, contaminants, and traces of infestation before filth is safely removed from your home in large containers.
Promotes Healthier Living
Bacteria, mildew, mold, pollen, pet dander, and other toxins (in addition to dust) are known to pile up and spread through the air once the furnace is on. For healthy folks who are autoimmune-strong, this won’t present much of a danger. However, those with sensitive respiratory systems don’t have it easy. For example, a person with a strong allergic reaction to dander can be irritated by the airborne particles in the air, further complicating his or her condition. Regular air duct cleaning means cleaner and safer air for all residents.
Enhances System Efficiency
Right after your health comes your budget. Heavily contaminated air ducts have been shown to restrict the airflow coming from the furnace and AC unit. This means your energy goes to waste every time you turn the system on. A well-maintained, clean ductwork system will allow the furnace to operate at its optimum level without any obstruction or energy waste.
The list doesn’t end here. A cleaning can improve more aspects of your household, including the system’s longevity, interior comfort, and so on. If you’re concerned about the state of your air ducts, think twice about the consequences of dirt that piles up in them, before you choose to ignore them. Contact us now for a consultation.
