Clean Ducts are Healthy and Save Energy

Saving Energy With Air Duct Cleaning: 

The air ducts in either a home or business building need maintenance and care in order to get the most out of your heating and cooling systems. Cleaning your air ducts on a regular basis gets dust, dirt and mold removed from system and thus causes the system to work more efficiently. Removing these foreign objects in your air ducts means the ducts will have far less obstructions and will allow the air to flow more freely and without as much energy. Any blockage, major or minor means the the system needs to work harder to circulate the air throughout your property. Without question air duct cleaning helps save energy but how do you know if you need to have them professionally cleaned?

Mold Growth: If you notice a moldy or musty smell coming from your air ducts there is a good chance that you have a mold infestation. Mold can develop when moisture gets caught in the air ducts, so it is imperative that an HVAC technician insects them.

Rodent Droppings or Insect Bodies: If you notice either of these things in your air ducts it probably calls for cleaning. Having these droppings in your ducts means that air is being circulated throughout your home or business and that insects could be nested in your air ducts.

Duct Blockage: If you notice a large amour of dirt or debris in your ducts it is a sign that your ducts should be cleaned.

Cleaning your air ducts is important to save energy and more importantly your health. You want to know that the air you are breathing is being ventilated through crisp and clean ducts.

Getting your air ducts cleaned regularly has a wide variety of benefits. From saving energy to having more breathable air, there is almost no discussion that it should not be done. The topic that is up for debate is how often you should get them cleaned.

We suggest annual cleaning but the frequency could differ due to the following:

 - Are there smokers in the home or business?

 - Pets that shed lots of hair or dander?

 - Residents that have any allergies? They could greatly benefit from reducing the total mount of air pollutants in your home or business.

 - Recent renovations or remodeling your home or business?

 - Recently had a different occupant of your home?

All of these issues can create problems in your air ducts as well as increase the reasons you would benefit from air duct cleaning.
