Air Duct Cleaning – What You Need to Know

Air Duct Cleaning is not only something you should do periodically, you should make it part of your annual maintenance in your home.

air duct cleaning is important for your families health.Imagine 40 pounds of dust spread throughout your home, pushed into the air for you and your family to breathe up to seven times a day via your heating and cooling system. Pretty gross thought, right? Well, unfortunately there is a high possibility this is the exact situation in your house right now.

Through normal occupation in a home, a sizeable amount of contaminants, such as dander, dust and chemicals, are generated. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living, according to NADCA – The HVAC Inspection, Maintenance and Restoration Association. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated five to seven times per day, on average.

Your heating and cooling system can be considered the lungs of your home, taking in air and breathing it out. Generally, the cleaner the lungs, the cleaner the air in your home. That’s why it’s important to get a quality air duct cleaning done on a regular basis. But beware, not everyone claiming to be an air duct cleaning professional can do the job the right way.

Not every house needs air duct cleaning. We will do an inspection first and recommend a complete cleaning only if necessary. We’ll point out debris buildup that is visible to the human eye, such as by removing a floor register and taking a picture with a digital camera.

Air duct cleaning can have many potential benefits. In addition to reducing contaminants and providing your home with better indoor air quality, you may enjoy energy savings as well. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. A clean HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature, and therefore, less energy is used, helping you save money on your utility bill.
