Dirt, mold, bugs, mites, and other “stuff” are all living in your duct system. With a whole-house duct cleaning we can get rid of it all. Duct cleaning can help improve your health by eliminating molds, bacteria and germs from source and re-circulated air, leaving your entire home cleaner and healthier so you and your family can breathe easier.
According to the NADCA, National Air Duct Cleaners Association, “in a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system takes air in and breathes air out.” 1
Key Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Indoor air quality. Most homeowners express concerns over indoor air quality as their number one reason for considering air duct cleaning. “Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average,” according to the NADCA.2 Over time, contaminants in your duct work re-circulate creating a build-up of dust and dirt. While we don’t know conclusively that dirty ducts mean unhealthy air in your home, they may be a “contributing factor to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems to people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.” 3
- Energy Savings. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Even using filters, your heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use. When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.
