Air Duct Cleaning For Your Home
Air duct cleaning is an important part of keeping your home healthy. Air duct systems are responsible for moving air from your cooling or heating unit around to the various rooms of your house. Over time, they can accumulate pollutants like mold, dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander, and critters. Even though HVAC systems have filters, they still get dirty or dusty through everyday usage.
Air duct maintenance and cleaning can be a useful way to help improve the air quality in your home and potentially remove any odors due to dirty channels. Clear ducts may even help some people breathe easier and relieve dust allergies.
Air Duct Cleaning For Indoor Allergies
Cleaning your air duct is an important aspect of maintaining your home’s system. It allows the air in your home to be clean and free from any allergen that might cause breathing problems, sneezing, and other typical issues.
The EPA suggests that cleaning and regular maintenance is necessary if you suspect mold or mildew growth, animal or insect infestation, or if you notice dust and debris being released into your home’s air. It’s also a wise idea to get a duct cleaning after home renovations or remodeling projects.
Dust in your home not only includes dirt, but also pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and other harmful allergens present in your home. It’s important to ensure that your home is as free of these harmful particles as possible.
Filters do a good job of removing most of the allergens, but your system might still contain a dense amount of dust, pet dander, dead skin cells, hair, and other harmful particles. These allergens could trigger allergy symptoms in those who are sensitive to airborne particles.
Clogged ducts are considerably more harmful since they might reintroduce the same particles into your home.
Various sections of your HVAC system might not be accessible and must be inspected by a qualified service provider to ensure that you don’t have any potentially harmful allergens.
Air Duct Cleaning Can Save You Money
Not only will servicing your system help to improve general air quality, but it may also help to improve the energy efficiency of your system and save you money. A blocked flow requires more energy to produce the same effect. A more efficient system will cost less to run and you could see monthly savings on your energy bill.
Seal Duct Leaks with Aeroseal
Aeroseal is a patented air duct sealing technology that seals leaks internally by distributing aerosolized sealant particles throughout a pressurized system. The particles remain suspended until they reach the point of a leak. They then leave the stream, deposit where the leak opens, and combine to seal the leak.
Keeping your ducts sealed will require less energy and will also help keep dust and debris out of your HVAC. That means less cleaning and lower energy bills throughout the entire year.
Clean your dryer ducts to prevent fires
Keeping your dryer ducts free of dust and debris can help reduce the likelihood that they will combust when mixed with the hot air that comes from your dryer.
Flammable materials from clothing such as lint and strings get caught in your dryer and create blockages. When hot air heats up dry lint and clothing particles, they can overheat and cause a fire.
Blockages also cause your dryer to work harder than it needs to. Save energy and prevent fires by having them cleaned regularly.
