Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning

There are many benefits to having your air ducts clean.

Indoor air pollution is now listed by the Environmental Protection Agency as the fourth greatest environmental threat to Americans. When your heating and cooling system is running, airborne contaminants are being drawn into your duct system. Over a period of time, these harmful contaminants will eventually build up inside your air ducts.

Indoor contaminants may include: dust mites, tobacco smoke, household mold, chemicals, airborne allergens, bacteria, animal dander and carbon monoxide, These contaminants are then circulated throughout your home or office and effect the health and comfort of you, your family, or your employees.

Having your air ducts cleaned, can help eliminate these problems.

Source removal duct cleaning can help to reduce household dust by removing the dust where it travels most- through your duct system.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

According to the EPA, indoor air is found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air. Air duct cleaning by can remove all of the above contaminants, and can help alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms.

Save Energy & Save Money

According to the EPA, a build-up of only .042 inches of dirt on a heating coil can result in a decrease of efficiency of 21%. A clean air conveyance system may help to increase efficiency and therefore may help to reduce heating and cooling costs.

Extended Equipment Life

9 out of 10 system failures are caused by dirt and dust. One of the functions of the fan, located inside of your air handler, is to keep the heat exchanger cool. Accumulated dirt and debris can reduce the CFM (cubic feet of air per minute) as much as 50%. This is the most common cause of cracks in heat exchangers. By having your system cleaned, you may prevent pre-mature breakdown and aging of your heating and cooling system.
