Dirty Ducts?

ductcleaning.jpgYour air ducts are one of the most important comfort systems in your home. They work all year long, distributing warm air throughout your home in cold weather, and cool air during the summer. Unfortunately, your ducts not only transport air, they transport all the particles in the air – things like dust, pollen, smoke, and pet dander that can pollute your indoor air quality. If you or someone in your house has experienced itchy skin, sore throats, headaches or allergy symptoms, the cause might not be entirely medical. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health. 

The reason is that over time, the ducts that circulate all this conditioned air through your home can become clogged and dirty. Worse, if moisture is present, mold and mildew can build up on the duct walls. As heated or cooled air passes through the ducts, it can lift these contaminants and carry them with the conditioned air into your living space, where they pose a risk to you and your family, especially allergy and asthma sufferers.

The best way to safeguard your family and get the most efficient heating and air conditioning from your system is to have your ducts professionally cleaned on a regular basis. If this is not done correctly, it can actually aggravate your air quality problems rather than solve them.
