Household contaminants in your ducts can circulate through your Gloucester, VA home over five times each day, impacting the quality of your health and home experience. Routine duct cleaning is an essential part of improving your indoor air quality, your family’s health, and your HVAC system’s efficiency.
1. Indoor Air Quality Improvements
Your ductwork provides the passageways for air to flow throughout your home. Over time, particles from dust, pollen, or even household chemicals begin to build up in the ducts.
As air moves through dirty ducts, it distributes these contaminants into your living spaces, creating indoor air pollution. Scheduling a duct cleaning is an important step towards improving your indoor air quality and giving your family the clean air they need to breathe deeply.
2. Health Benefits
The benefits of better indoor air quality from cleaned ducts extend to everyone living in the space. Household members with respiratory conditions like asthma or those suffering from allergies will find relief from the stress of experiencing symptoms in their homes.
Even if you don’t have an underlying respiratory condition, breathing clean air will leave you feeling more energized and healthier overall. Circulating cleaner air through your house can even improve sleep quality as your breathing is no longer impaired by contaminants during the night.
3. Energy Savings
Even with regular filter changes, air ducts become dirty through regular use. This buildup of dirt can create clogs or restrict airflow, straining your system to continue pushing air through the ducts. Clean ductwork allows your HVAC systems to work easily and efficiently, potentially extending their operating life and lowering your energy bill.
