Respiratory health issues and allergies have become quite common, thanks to air pollution. What you may not know is that indoor air can be even more hazardous than outdoor air. If your air ducts have neither been inspected nor cleaned, they could be housing a variety of pollutants and contaminants and circulate them around your home or office.
- Filthy air from dirt and dust – ridden air ducts can aggravate health issues (like asthma and allergies) and cause other concerns, including increased energy bills. Investing in clean air ducts is beneficial for both health and your bank account. The following are some benefits:
- Better Indoor Air Quality – With dirty air ducts, the air inside a home or office can become smelly and stuffy, temperature and humidity could be inconsistent, and dust and dirt is constantly circulating in the air you breathe. Cleaning your air ducts makes the air fresher and make you more comfortable.
- Reduced Risk to Health – Dust and dirt are the most common causes of allergic reactions and respiratory problems. Pests and mould residing in air vents can make these problems worse – their cast skins, droppings, and bodily secretions can trigger allergies and/or carry certain diseases. Keeping HVAC ducts dust- and pest-free improves the overall health of those residing in a home or office.
Cost and Energy Savings – When dust, dirt, and contaminants from pests accumulate in air ducts, they can block airflow. Your HVAC system will try to compensate for inadequate temperatures and air circulation, making it work harder. This increases electricity consumption and the likelihood of a system breakdown. Since prevention is better (and cheaper) than cure, save on costs by getting regular checkups for your air ducts.
