Knowing that your home is clean is a great feeling. Knowing that you have clean air in your home is an even better feeling. When your air ducts are clean, your home is safer and more comfortable for you and your family. Since we breathe in around 10,000 liters of air a day, the quality of the air in our homes greatly affects our quality of life. So we mean business when we say that air-duct cleaning is a must. Air duct cleaning refers to the general maintenance and washing of various heating and cooling system components, like the supply and return air ducts of your system. As time goes on, HVAC components get contaminated with pollen, dust particles, mold (if moisture is present), and other debris. These can exacerbate allergy symptoms or cause certain discomfort in your home, so make air-duct cleaning a priority to keep your indoor air clean and fresh.
Keeping your air ducts clean comes with an array of benefits, a key benefit being greatly improved indoor air quality. Dirty air can make you sick and make your home smell bad, but a clean air-duct system eliminates these problems. Clean air ducts can also improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system. Contaminants in the air ducts can cause your heating and cooling system to work harder and shorten its lifespan. Clean HVAC systems use less energy so they save you money on your energy bill. Higher indoor air quality keeps your HVAC system clear of corrosion and protects your HVAC investment.
Cleaning your air ducts is one of the simplest ways to keep your home clean and healthy. When contaminants build up in your air ducts and are recirculated five to seven times a day they can contribute to a number of health problems. You may notice the most common problems include eye and nose irritation, coughing, asthma, and especially allergic reactions. The sooner you have your air ducts cleaned, the sooner you can breathe easy. It’s important to note that when air ducts are being cleaned, all components of the system should be completely inspected and cleaned, including cooling coils, fans, heat exchangers, registers, grilles, diffusers, and air ducts.
When having your air ducts cleaned, it’s a good idea to have them sealed too. Having your ducts sealed closes any air leaks that may have occurred over years of work and has the potential to save you hundreds of dollars and a lot of energy. It’s a great way to end home pollutant circulation once and for all. Ask a Mersey professional to check for leaks when they clean your air ducts and determine if your ducts need sealed.
