Knowing that your home is clean is a great feeling. Knowing that the air in your home is cleanis 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 goes hand-in-hand with 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, such as 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 or make you ill, so make air-duct cleaning a priority for the healthiest home possible.
Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Keeping your air ducts clean comes with an array of benefits, most notable being the improvement of your indoor air quality. Dirty air can make you sick and make your home smell bad, but a clean air-duct system provides a healthy environment while eliminating odors. Clean air ducts can also improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system. Contaminants in the air ducts can cause your heating and cooling system to work harder and shorten its lifespan. Clean HVAC systems are more efficient so they save you money on your energy bill. Improved indoor air quality keeps your heating and air conditioning system free of corrosion and protects your HVAC investment.
Why You Should Get Your Ducts Cleaned
Ensuring your air ducts are clean is one of the simplest 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. Some of 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. This sealing technology closes any air leaks that may have occurred over years of work and can save homeowners potentially hundreds of dollars and so much energy. It’s a great way to end home pollutant circulation once and for all. Ask a Fras-Air/General Service Experts professional to identify 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.
