Top Benefits of HVAC Cleaning
National Air Duct Cleaners Association NADCA’s rule of thumb for consumers is that “if your air ducts look dirty, they probably are,” and that dirty HVAC systems should be inspected by a reputable, certified HVAC professional. Here are some other reasons homeowners choose to have their air ducts cleaned.
Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality is one major reason that homeowners decide to investigate air duct cleaning. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system takes air in and breathes air out.
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 an average of 5 to 7 times per day. Over time, this causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.
Though dirty ducts don’t automatically mean unhealthy air in your home or work space, they may promote larger health issues or help add contaminants that create serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminated build up in the heating and cooling system make it work harder, reducing the life of your system. Filters are helpful, but the system still gets dirty through normal use.
A clean system works less to maintain the desired temperature, resulting is less energy usage and improved cost-effectiveness. Get your system checked today. It's free.
