When was the last time you thought about your air ducts? If you can’t remember, you’re not alone. Many homeowners find that their air ducts are out of mind because they are out of sight. Unfortunately, this mindset has a huge impact on the quality of your home’s indoor air—and, ultimately, your health.
Central air ducts are a breeding ground for mold, pollen, bacteria and other contaminants—and repeated exposure to polluted air may exacerbate allergies, asthma, headaches, eye irritation and respiratory conditions. However, scheduling the air duct cleaning your ductwork requires keeps these unwanted contaminants and symptoms out of your home!
At Cornerstone Pros, we perform quality air duct cleaning! This important IAQ service is crucial for securing a healthier and safer indoor environment. It effectively removes allergens and pathogens from your ductwork to improve the quality of your home’s indoor air. Clean ductwork also improves airflow and increases HVAC efficiency, which saves you money and lengthens your system’s lifespan.
Your home’s air ducts are the lungs of your HVAC system. Their role is to circulate the air from your cooling and heating systems in and out of your home’s living space, which provides consistent interior comfort. This means all of the air in your home has to travel through your air ducts before it can enter your living space.
Here’s the problem: According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), an average six-room home can create up to 40 pounds of dust each year. Where does much of this dust end up? Your ductwork! Since all of the air in your home travels through your air ducts before entering your living space, dust, allergens and other pathogens hiding inside your air ducts enter your living space, too. Once inside your indoor space, they wreak havoc on the quality of your home’s air. Breathing in filthy air has a direct affect on your health!
This is why it’s important to have clean ductwork. Air duct cleaning whisks away dust and debris from your HVAC system’s supply and return ducts as well as the registers and diffusers in each room. This means contaminants will no longer invade your living space, allowing you to enjoy cleaner, healthier air.
According to the NADCA, you should have your air ducts professionally cleaned every three to five years. However, air duct cleaning may be required more often if your energy bills have been on the rise and there’s:
While any household or business may benefit from routine air duct cleaning, it can be especially important when:
