It is very important to clean the air ducts of the central air and thermal system. There are many reasons why frequent cleaning is so important. Here are 5 of the best:
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that removing 4/10 inch of dust from a cooling system’s coil can reduce household energy consumption by up to 21%. In other words, cleaning it can save you money in the long run, even though cleaning the air ducts is already expensive.
This makes the unit more sturdy
Many central heating systems fail more quickly than necessary due to improper maintenance. Regular cleaning can support avoid upcoming problems.
Air quality enhancement
This is probably the biggest advantage of cleaning the air duct. Everyone knows that cleaning vents removes negative elements (i.e. dust allergens, pollen, etc.) in the air and cooling your home. These things are often found in air ducts, so if they are not cleaned consistently, they can actually enter your home. Even if someone is not allergic to these things, but coming in contact with them can make them very sick.
Virtuous for allergies
If someone in your family has allergies, cleaning the air ducts is very important to help limit the damage.
A pungent odor in the home means that dust, or mold may be present in the air ducts. No matter how many air fresheners or candles you throw at the problem, they cannot be completely removed.
So how do you keep them clean?
Unfortunately, many people do it the wrong way. First, you don’t need chemicals. Many people use harsh chemicals to clean out their systems, which often do more harm than good. Many chemicals that are effective at removing dirt are inhaled poorly and, as a result, exacerbate the problem.
Also, do not attempt to clean it yourself. Hiring an air duct service can be more effective, and you should do this every year if you have a good relationship with someone. That way, they can perform tests you couldn’t, check your air quality, and take appropriate steps to improve it.
