5 Reasons You need Your Air Ducts Cleaned

You spend more time in your home than anywhere else.  You live, breathe, and play in the same place day by day and your home can have a significant impact on your health and happiness.  The quality of your indoor air is directly related to the indoor maintenance done in your home and when this is put off or not schedule regularly the impact on your family can be significant.

When you first purchase a home, it is difficult to know the quality of upkeep done prior to you moving in.  Many homes have never had their air ducts cleaned, and that can mean decades of dust, dirt and pollution circulating through your home.  The EPA has indicated that indoor air can be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air, even in urban areas.  This means your family can be breathing in harmful toxins that damage lung tissue and build-up in the body causing long-term health effects at an even greater rate than if you were outside.

Allergies and asthma are common concerns, the rates of both afflictions are rising swiftly in developing countries and some studies have linked both, but especially asthma to chronic exposure to dust and contaminants.  These illnesses can be life-threatening and substantially impact the quality of life for both adults and children.  Asthma and allergies can have a great impact on future health and frequent exposure to dust, pollution and air contaminants can trigger symptoms in individuals even with mild allergies.  Cleaning your air ducts on a frequent basis ensures removal of the allergens that are most commonly blamed for triggering allergy symptoms in the home and creates a more comfortable home environment for asthma sufferers.  Reduction of exposure to air-borne contaminants reduce health care bills and reduce the need for missed time from work or school.

Cleaning your air ducts frequently can also have a positive impact on your family’s budget.  Contaminants in the air force your furnace and air cooling system to work harder.  This increases the wear and tear to these systems requiring more maintenance and reducing the life span of your furnace.  When the cost of a heating system can run over $10,000, this can have a major impact on the finances of a family.

Clean air ducts ensure your furnace and air conditioner run efficiently, in-efficient systems increase your heating and cooling bill substantially and will cause your furnace to run more frequently.  Furnaces that are forced to turn on more often due to dirty air ducts remove more humidity from the air, which caused dry and uncomfortable conditions for your family.  Air that holds its moisture is more comfortable and warmer than air that is dry, clean air ducts can make a very big impact in winter heating bills simply by allowing your family to be more comfortable.

Finally, any home which has had recent remodeling should consider air duct cleaning.  Any project inside the home creates fine particulate dust that can find it’s way into your lungs and cause scarring and damage, especially woodwork or drywall.    If your home has had recent improvement, air duct cleaning is warranted.

Choosing a reputable and reliable air duct cleaning company has never been easier and the process is hassle free.  Fresh Air has revolutionized the process to ensure your family’s total satisfaction.
