Why Is Air Duct Cleaning Necessary For Your Worcester Home or Business?
Over time, contaminants such as dust and dirt can build up on all the surfaces of your home. Unlike your floor or counters, however, you cannot sweep or vacuum inside your HVAC system’s air ducts. This means that dust, mold, dirt, pollen, pet hair, and more are building up without interference out of your sight. They begin to clog up your vents and filters, making your HVAC system work less efficiently. Even more worryingly, when you use your heating or air conditioning, these particles get circulated throughout your home or office. They consistently lower your indoor air quality and cause everyone to breathe in contaminants. Regular professional cleaning gets rid of build up and keeps your home or business efficient and healthy.
When Should You Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned?
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends that homeowners clean their air ducts once every 3-5 years. The frequency that’s right for your home or business will depend on how busy your space is and how many contaminants are likely entering your vents. If you have a lot of pets or have recently had construction done, it’s a good idea to have your home cleaned more often. If you own a busy business with many people tracking in contaminants from outside, we also recommend having your air ducts cleaned every 3 years or perhaps more often. You can do a brief inspection yourself by shining a flashlight into a vent and taking a picture using a camera phone. This will let you see if you have any visible build-up that requires cleaning.
Improved Air Quality and Health
A clean HVAC system is important for keeping your home or business clean and healthy. The contaminants that can build up inside of air ducts include pollen, mold, pet hair, dander, and pest feces. All of these pollute your indoor air quality and can pose a health risk. Circulating contaminants increase the risk of sinus problems and respiratory infections. For people with allergies or asthma, they worsen symptoms. Regularly clean your HVAC system’s air ducts is a key step in protecting your everyday health.
Enhanced Energy Efficiency
When contaminants build up inside of your Worcester HVAC system, it can’t work as effectively. Build-up and clogged filters slow down the flow of air, meaning that you’ll use more energy in order to heat or cool your home. Because you rely on your heating and air conditioning during the hot Massachusetts summers and cold winters, you can end up using a lot of extra energy. When our team cleans out air vents, we thoroughly vacuum out all build-up and replace filters. Then, when your HVAC system is clean, it works much more efficiently, resulting in lower energy bills for you. The improved efficiency will also help your HVAC system to last longer.
