The air ducts in your home provide a pathway for air to move through the HVAC system and from room to room; they are necessary for transporting cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter. The people living in a home will breathe in about 10,000 liters of air each day, so it's vital that the air in the home be as clean and clear of contaminants as possible. Here are 3 things to know about air duct cleanings:
1. An air duct cleaning should be performed once every five years or so, unless certain circumstances require more frequent cleanings. If a homeowner or child has allergies or respiratory issues, or if there are pets in the home, cleanings should be performed every two years.
2. An air duct cleaning involves general maintenance and washing of heating and cooling system components, including the supply and return air ducts of the system. HVAC components, over time, can get contaminated with pollen, mold (if moisture is present), dust particles, pet hair, and other debris. These contaminants will aggravate allergy symptoms and have a negative impact on the health of those residing in the home. A clean air duct system will provide healthier, cleaner air for you and your loved ones to breathe.
3. Clean air ducts will improve the efficiency of the HVAC system. Contaminants in the air ducts can cause your heating and cooling systems to have to work harder to reach desired temperatures in the house, which can shorten the lifespan of the equipment. Clean HVAC systems are more energy efficient, saving money on energy bills. The better air quality will help prevent corrosion inside the HVAC system, protecting your investment.
