Here’s a statistic that might surprise your lungs: up to 40 pounds of dust are created each year in the average home, simply through everyday living! Homeowners often wonder what value air duct cleaning can bring to their home. The answer? Indoor air quality! We recommend getting your air ducts cleaned professionally at least once a year to help prevent the buildup of too many contaminants in your home.
Particles such as dander, dust, and other air pollutants slowly accumulate in our homes as we dwell in them. When our heating and cooling systems run, they suck in those contaminants and recirculate them multiple times per day. Over time, a build-up of these particles occurs in our air ducts, which can affect the air quality in our homes. Dirty air ducts in a home or workplace aren’t necessarily the sole cause of health problems, but they can contribute to those who often suffer from allergies or other respiratory conditions. For that reason, getting your air ducts cleaned annually is a good idea.
In addition to the health benefits, another reason to clean your air ducts is to help save on energy costs. A build up of dust and other particles in air ducts causes our heating and cooling systems to work harder, resulting in more energy expended and higher utility costs!
Fortunately, our team at E&B specializes in cleaning out your air ducts. You’ll not only breathe easier, but also extend the life of your heating and cooling systems, as well as saving on energy costs.
