The duct cleaning rule of thumb according to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) is simple: “if your ducts look dirty, they probably are.” The NADCA suggest that dirty HVAC systems should be inspected by a reputable, certified HVAC professional. Below are some other reasons homeowners choose to have NIAGARA DUCT CLEANING / AEROSEAL TECHNOLOGIES clean their air ducts.
Indoor Air Quality
Improving indoor air quality is one of the main motivating factors for homeowners investigating air duct cleaning. Simply through normal occupation of a home, a family will generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants in a home. In fact, in a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds (18.14 kgs) of dust is created through every day living. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and recirculated an average of five to seven times a day. Your heating and cooling system act like the lungs in your home or office, taking air in and breathing it out. What’s in your ducts eventually finds its way into the air you breathe.
While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be a contributing factor to larger health issues, including harbouring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or environmental allergies. Children and seniors are particularly susceptible to such pollutants, and a reason why NIAGARA DUCT CLEANING / AEROSEAL duct cleaning services can be so critical.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.
When NIAGARA DUCT CLEANING / AEROSEAL cleans and seals your HVAC system, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.
