Having a clean home is a great feeling. Knowing that your home air is clean is an even better feeling. Having your air ducts cleaned regularly is key to making 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. So to say clean air ducts is important is an understatement.
Air duct cleaning refers to the general maintenance and washing of various heating and cooling system components, including the supply and return air ducts of your system. It’s just a matter of time before HVAC components get contaminated with pollen, dust particles, mold (if moisture is present), and other debris. These can exacerbate allergy symptoms or cause certain discomfort in your home, so make air-duct cleaning a priority to keep your indoor air clean and fresh.
Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Keeping your air ducts clean is beneficial in many ways, most notable being the improvement of your indoor air quality. Dirty air can fill your home with contaminants and bad smells, but a clean air-duct system keeps your home healthy and smelling fresh. 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 to run at its normal pace, shortening its lifespan. Clean HVAC systems are more energy efficient , which means money savings for you. Better 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
Cleaning your air ducts is one of the simplest things you can do to keep a clean house and healthy body. When contaminants build up in your air ducts and are recirculated five to seven times a day they can contribute to different health problems. Some of the most common problems include eye and nose irritation, coughing, asthma, and especially allergic reactions. Breathing easy starts with having your air ducts cleaned. 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.
When having your air ducts cleaned, it’s a good idea to have them sealed too. Having your ducts sealed closes any air leaks that may have occurred over years of work and can save homeowners potentially hundreds of dollars and a lot of energy. It’s a great way to end home pollutant circulation once and for all. Ask a Knochelmann Service Experts professional to check for leaks when they clean your air ducts and explain if you could benefit from having your ducts sealed.
