Many homeowners are grateful for their heated air in wintertime, or cooled air in hot summer months. Yet, they forget the ductwork which circulates that air throughout the house. What happens when you haven’t had air duct cleaning for your HVAC system for many years? The result can be that air quality is reduced and personal health of the building’s occupants is affected.
Clean ducts and piping improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. Because ducts are often difficult to reach, they are nearly impossible to clean without the assistance of professionals. When those ducts blow particles, debris, and dust (and/or develop mould), health can suffer. Children and people with asthma and/or allergies are affected the most by poor-quality air. An air exchanger or heat recovery ventilator will improve energy efficiency and air quality — and they need to be clean. The technicians at Dr. Duct are available to inspect your system and keep it running to the best of its capability.
Equally important is the cleanliness of a home or business’ dryer vents. Repairs to dryer piping and ductwork are necessary to keep buildings safe and prevent fire hazards. Having a professional dryer vent cleaning once every five years will help your machine run more efficiently and protect you and those you love. U.S. statistics reflect that about 12,700 fires related to residential buildings’ clothes dryers occur yearly. In one year alone accidents of this type caused 15 deaths, 300 injuries, and cost approximately $88 million (US currency) in property damage. Statistics Canada does not provide similar fire statistics, but there’s a high likelihood the same preventable fires occur in our country.
Kitchen and bathroom vents throughout the rest of a home also need cleaning. Dust and spider webs will accumulate and result in an inoperable exhaust fan. At the very least, the blockage can greatly reduce fan performance. Now, think about the amount of grease and dust that must, occasionally, be cleaned off kitchen shelves, range hoods, and walls. Consider how much of is likely inside the kitchen vents. Cleaning the vents will improve their lifespan and allow them to rid your home of odours and smoke when something burns while cooking.
Old insulation can also be a concern. Sometimes it needs to be removed because of remodelling, animal nests, the presence of asbestos or smoke damage. We offer insulation removal services to help safeguard the health of everyone under your roof.
