Getting Your Ducts in a Row
What would happen if you decided to stop changing your car’s oil? Particles and sediment would accumulate and circulate throughout the engine, shortening its life and increasing the chance of a breakdown. The same principle is at play when it comes to your home’s HVAC equipment and ductwork – except instead of merely ruining your system’s components, neglecting your ductwork puts you and your family at an unnecessary health risk.
Why Your Air Ducts Need to Be Cleaned
Up to 40 pounds of dust can accumulate annually in a six-room home. Over time, other contaminants like pet hair, mold, mildew and even pests can accumulate in your home’s air ducts, clogging them. As cooled or heated air moves through the ductwork, these contaminants can intermingle with the indoor air you breathe, exacerbating health issues such as asthma and allergies, and causing other serious respiratory ailments. And the damage doesn’t end there either. Dirty ductwork requires your HVAC system to work that much harder to achieve the same temperature levels, unnecessarily running up your energy bills and straining your air conditioner and heater in the process. The result: poorer overall health and more money spent on tune-ups and repair work.
Only Trust a Professional
Of course, duct cleaning is a delicate process that should only be trusted to experts. Many companies claim to offer reputable duct cleaning service, but their work can be shoddy with negligible benefits.
