Let 2020 be the Year with Cleaner Air
You’ve probably already taken a few moments to reflect on the past and set goals for the year ahead. If you’re like most of us, your New Year’s resolutions probably included being healthy and saving money!
Why not start the year off with a healthier home with cleaner air? That’s right. Kick those resolutions off with an air duct cleaning service from a local contractor who’s a NADCA member. Air duct cleaning is not only a great way to ensure you and your family are breathing clean, healthy air — it can also improve your home’s energy efficiency, and save you money!
Cleaner Air, Better Health
Just as the surfaces in your home become dirty over time, so can your air ducts. Through normal, everyday life, we generate plenty of contaminants and air pollutants like dander, dust, and chemicals. All those contaminants are pulled into your home’s HVAC system, and recirculated an average of five to seven times per day. Yuck!
Dirty air ducts can contribute to larger health issues, especially for those with respiratory conditions, auto-immune disorders, or asthma and allergies. Indoor air pollutants can also lead to irritated eyes, nose, and throat, as well as headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.
By simply removing everyday pollutants, air duct cleaning can vastly improve your indoor air quality.
The benefits of air duct cleaning don’t stop with improving your indoor air quality — clean air ducts can help you save money! A clean HVAC system is more efficient, and doesn’t use as much energy to maintain a comfortable temperature, ultimately saving you money on monthly utility costs.
According to Energy Star, in a typical home, 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through the ductwork is lost due to leaks. Making sure your air ducts are sealed properly is essential for saving energy. To maintain an efficient HVAC system, NADCA recommends getting your air ducts inspected at least once a year, and cleaned as needed. Your professional air duct cleaner will be able to assess the condition of your air ducts, and pinpoint any problem areas or leaks during the inspection and cleaning process. This annual assessment can help avoid costly repairs down the road.
