Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
One overlooked step in preparation for a long cold Canadian Winter that it very important is getting your air ducts cleaned. Air duct cleaning not only keeps your air in your home cleaner, it greatly improves the efficiency of your heater. Cleaning the air ducts improves air flow thus decreasing the amount of time your heater has to run to keep your home warm. This is crucial in areas where it gets very cold for long periods of time. Neglect and restricted air flow can cause premature wear on your heater by prolonging the running cycle and of course will make your heating bill extremely high.
People that have allergies or Asthma should have their air ducts cleaned at least once yearly to prevent dirty air from causing respiratory problems. Air ducts can harbor mold which can cause serious health problems, pest droppings, heavy dust and dust mites, and fungi which can cause unpleasant odors in your home. For better air quality it is important to routinely call professional air cleaning services to get the ducts cleaned. Better air quality means feeling better every day. Especially if you have a respiratory condition. An important point to keep in mind, however, is to make sure that you find reputable air cleaning services. If a poor job is done then pollutants can debris can be propelled into the air and make the air quality worse than it was to begin with.
Finding a Qualified Service Provider
It is very important to make sure that you do your homework and find a qualified service provider. As mentioned, you can make your air quality worse if you use an unskilled service provider. Not only can air quality be reduced but serious damage can be done to the HVAC system if the person is unskilled at performing the service. One way to research is to check out the online reviews posted by actual customers. This can give you some insight as to their skill at cleaning air ducts. See if there are several complaints about the company and if there is you will want to find a more qualified service provider.
Another important point is to be aware of the many scams that people are unaware of in this field of work. A contractor or service provider may offer a discount special and then start tacking on fees for made up services and made up terminology used to confuse and take advantage of the customer. Some unfortunate customers think they will be getting a great deal and then end up paying a greater amount than the work was really worth. Reputation and customer reviews are important so don’t forget to do some investigating before choosing someone to do your air duct cleaning.
