New Years Resolution: Get Your Ducts In A Row With Duct Cleaning
Is duct cleaning one of your New Year’s Resolutions? Well, it should be! There’s nothing like a new year to start fresh with the air you breathe inside your home.
Dirty ducts can contribute a great deal to poor indoor air quality, filling your lungs with all types of air pollutants without you even knowing it. The team at Action Air is here to help Indianapolis residents get their ducts in a row with a duct cleaning.
When Should I Get My Air Ducts Cleaned?
Every homeowner should consider getting their air ducts cleaned, but it is especially important if:
- You have pets
- Someone in your home has asthma or allergies
- Someone in your home smokes
- Your home was recently renovated
- You recently bought your home
- Kids or seniors are living with you
- You don’t know if you’ve ever had them cleaned before
It’s recommended you have a professional perform air duct cleaning every three to five years, but depending on the level of activity inside your home, that can differ from person to person.
Why Should I Get My Air Ducts Cleaned?
Air pollutants that hang out in our homes are often invisible to the human eye. There are two reasons why you should invest in air duct cleaning this year.
Better Air Quality
The duct system in some homes can be a huge source of contamination, containing as much as 4 inches of dust, debris, pollen, pet dander, and fungi. It’s no secret from what you’ve read so far that cleaning your air ducts can increase the air quality throughout your home, but something this important is worth repeating again. You’re breathing in pollutants daily.
Dirty ducts can put a strain on your HVAC system, causing it to work harder to heat and/or cool your home. All that dust and dander can get trapped inside, blocking the airflow. When your system has to work harder, it uses more energy and more energy usage equals higher heating bills. This is why a regular HVAC maintenance is so important, as well as, changing your filters regularly. It’s even worth considering adding a high-efficiency media filter or ultraviolet air purifier to your homes ventilation system.
How Can I Get My Air Ducts Cleaned?
When it comes to cleaning your ducts, the team at Action Air is here to help. Attempting to clean your ducts yourself could result in duct damage and less effective cleaning. Poking even the smallest hole in your ductwork can reduce the airflow in your home, causing your HVAC system to be less effective.
