The duct system acts like the respiratory system of your home. According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), as much as 40 pounds of dust is created annually in an average six-room home. Dust, dander, and other air pollutants are pulled into the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system and circulated through air ducts. It needs to be cleaned effectively and efficiently so it can ‘breathe’ and not become contaminated and congested. Dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander, and other airborne contaminants are pulled into your duct system every time the air conditioner or furnace runs. These contaminants can build up over time inside of the duct work and go out into your home any time the furnace or air conditioner is turned on. This can be detrimental for the health of you and your family members, especially if one of them suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory ailments.
The most effective way to get rid of this problem is by eliminating contaminants from the entire HVAC system and getting your ducts cleaned. Not only does this have health benefits for your family, it also can make your home cleaner. Duct cleaning can restore the HVAC capacity, lessens running time, which saves you money by lowering your heating and cooling bills in the long run.
Your air ducts dramatically affect what type of air you are breathing. Is it healthy air? According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), it is recommended that ducts be cleaned every 3 to 5 years.
