Think of your air duct system as the circulatory system of your home. If it gets all gunked up with dust and mold, the system will not be able to function properly. Normal home occupation generates a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants like dander, dust and chemicals that are all pulled into the HVAC system and then re-circulated 5 to 7 times a day. It’s this re-circulation that leads to the buildup of contaminants in the duct work. Now dirty ductwork doesn’t always mean that the air is unhealthy but they could very well be adding to bigger health issues or harboring contaminants that can lead to more serious issues for those that suffer from autoimmune disorders, respiratory health conditions or some environmental allergies.
Is Air Duct Cleaning a Waste of Money?
The U.S. Department of Energy states that 25 to 40 percent of the energy used in heating and cooling within your home is wasted because the contaminants that build up will make your system work harder and shorten it’s life. Even with those filters that you should be changing regularly, dirty air still gets through. So it makes sense that the cleaner your system is the better it will work and more efficiently too! This process of air duct cleaning uses specialized blowers, vacuums and brushes to clean out the supply, intake, and return ducts throughout your home. The service should also include a thorough cleaning of the air handler, registers, grilles, fans, motors, housings and coils of the HVAC system. After the service you should notice less suffering from allergies. How often you have it done can depend on a variety of factors, like pets, smokers, recent renovations, local weather conditions and the overall cleanliness of your home. To get an idea as to whether or not you need a professional air duct cleaning you can keep track of how often your air filters are getting dirty and how dirty they are getting. Peek inside the return grills and supply ductwork. You can get a pretty good idea when you see the amount of possible buildup.
