EPA studies show that levels of approximately a dozen common organic pollutants are 2 – 5 times higher indoors than outdoors.
Clean air ducts are essential to a healthy life. Health Canada states that human health effects of poor air quality affect the body’s respiratory system and the cardiovascular system.
Why Get Your Ducts Cleaned?
Keeping your air ducts clean is beneficial in many ways, most notably being greatly improved indoor air quality. Dirty air can fill your home with contaminants and bad smells, but a clean air-duct system eliminates these problems while providing increased energy efficiency. Contaminants in your air ducts can force your heating and cooling system to work harder to run at its normal pace, shortening its lifespan. Clean HVAC systems are more efficient and therefore cost you less money. Better indoor air quality keeps your heating and air conditioning system safe from corrosion and protects your HVAC investment.
Having your air ducts cleaned frequently is one of the simplest ways you can maintain a clean house and healthy body. Dust and other contaminants are circulated through air ducts 5 to 7 times a day, which quickly builds up and can contribute to many different health problems. The most common problems include eye and nose irritation, coughing, asthma, and especially allergic reactions. Breathing easy starts with having your air ducts cleaned. It’s important to note that when air ducts are being cleaned, all components of the system should be completely inspected and cleaned, which includes cooling coils, heat exchangers, fans, registers, grilles, diffusers and air ducts.
