Duct ventilation is an issue that goes hand in hand with air duct cleaning, and it’s an issue that people have faced for a long time. There are a number of factors that contribute to problems with your ductwork, which are very dangerous. Cleaning your ducts is not an easy job, and even if you try very hard to clean them, it still remains somewhat dirty. Many homeowners remember to have their filters changed regularly on their HVAC systems to prevent dusty air from being circulated throughout their homes, but it’s still equally important to have your duct systems cleaned. During the cleaning air ducts are swept out and all dust, debris, and contaminants are removed from the forced air and HVAC system.
If you are looking to improve the quality of the air that you breathe and get the most out of your AC, it’s likely a good idea to call a professional who specializes in industrial and residential air duct cleaning. Not only can you extend the life of your HVAC system and appliances, but there will be a noticeable difference in the functionality and efficiency of your system.
There are many benefits to AC duct cleaning:
One of the most enticing reasons for having your ac ducts professionally cleaned is because it can help save you money in the long run. The removal of dust and debris from the coils of the air ducts greatly boost the efficiency of your units. Having your ducts cleaned professionally will help save substantial amounts of money on your monthly bills.
Years of dust, hair, pests and other pollutants in ductwork will hinder an HVAC system’s airflow. A professional cleaning will remove the buildup and promote proper airflow. Any pests that have been living in your ducts will also be cleared out from a proper cleaning. When dirt and debris are removed, the fans and motors that power your air conditioning unit will not have to work as hard promoting efficiency and money saving.
Air quality in a house is usually important in terms of internal conditions. There are many contaminants that build up in your ductwork over time and it takes a proper cleaning to completely clear them out.
- Dust: New homeowners may do constant dusting only to find the dust back the very next day. The reason is that the dust continues to flow through the house and ductwork until it is properly cleaned. New homes will have drywall dust and construction debris in the ductwork before the homeowner even moves in. It’s important to have the ducts cleaned on both old and new homes.
- Mold: Many air duct systems are located in places that are wet, damp, or sometimes even flooded. The moisture caused by humidity or water can cause mold and mildew to grow in and around the ductwork. Cleaning the duct can help remove all of this mold that has built up over time. An anti-microbial should be fogged into the system after the cleaning to prevent the growth of new mold.
Increased Lifespan of Systems
Not only does cleaning your air ducts increase the efficiency of your AC systems, but it also can help to increase the lifespan of the unit. By preventing the systems from working as hard, it relieves normal wear and tear from the system and the internal parts such as the motor, fans, coils, and so on. By eliminating extra work, it not only reduces the energy consumption of your unit but increases how long it will function properly for. It’s less likely to breakdown or experience issues, thus saving you even more money in the long run.
- Pollens: living in Florida, we are not safe from pollen and allergy season. These pollens that coat our cars, streets, sidewalks, and houses make their way into our vents and ductwork. Over time, they build up in the ducts and spread into our houses. This can cause people who are heavily affected by these pollens to be uncomfortable in or out of the house. Getting your ducts cleaned and staying on top of changing your filters can help minimize the amount of pollen that makes its way into the house.
- Pets: Animal fur gets trapped in the vents and build up living germs, fungus, and allergy-causing bacteria. Pet dander will still exist from previous owners and your own pets and cause reactions for people with allergies. The fur and dander can also hinder the efficiency of the HVAC system. Clumps of hair can slow down the airflow for the entire system. It’s important to have all debris, dander, and fur removed from your ducts.
By properly cleaning the air ducts homeowners protect their families from harmful dust and other contaminants. Air ducts provide the ideal breeding ground for all allergy-causing bacteria, mold, fungi, and other allergens. Children under the age of four are very vulnerable and the result may be allergies or asthma.
A musty scent in your house may imply that dust, fungi, or mildew might be inhabiting the air ventilation systems. These odors can’t be eliminated by just using air fresheners, which only mask the smell. Having professionals clean your ducts will remove the smell completely.
