Why Should I Have My Air Ducts Cleaned?

The quality of the air circulating in your home or business is very important. People generally spend 90 percent of their time indoors, and your indoor air can be up to five times dirtier and more dangerous than the air outside. That’s why you should have your air ducts cleaned regularly. Here are some of the reasons you should have your air ducts cleaned:
To Reduce Allergens
The presence of allergens in the air can create problems for many people, particularly during the spring and fall. Having your ducts cleaned can remove irritants that would otherwise have you sneezing, coughing, and be sending you to the drug store to get medicine.
To Clean the Entire System
When you hire someone to clean your ducts, they will also be cleaning the components that make up your HVAC system. This includes the fan, housing, heating and cooling coils, diffusers, and the condensation drip pan. This process is necessary, because if it is not done, the ducts will become contaminated with the offensive materials once again.
To Help Save Energy and Money
Research on the fuel inefficiency of coils and blowers that are dirty has shown that they work at 40% lowered efficiency than those that are clean. Having your ducts cleaned means that the unit won't have to work as hard. Having a system that is clean and running efficiently means that you’ll save energy and money in the long run.
