Frequently Asked Questions about HVAC Cleaning / Air Duct Cleaning
What are the health benefits of HVAC cleaning?
When it comes to health, good indoor air quality plays a huge role. In order to improve your homes indoor air quality, you should consider having your HVAC system cleaned. The HVAC system (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) have been shown to collect contaminants such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and small dust particles, all of which have the potential to affect overall health. An HVAC system cleaning will remove these contaminants from your system and keep your family safe.
How often should residential ductwork be cleaned?
The frequency of cleaning residential ductwork depends on several factors. You may consider more frequent cleaning if there are smokers in the household, pets, and residents with allergies or asthma. This would help reduce the number of air pollutants inside the home. You may also want to consider air duct cleaning if there has been water condensation, damage to the HVAC system, following home renovations, and especially if you’re moving into a new home.
Will clean air ducts reduce our energy bill?
A clean HVAC system operates more efficiently and effectively. This will help the system have a longer life span and be less likely to break down. A system that is free of debris, dust, and contaminants will be running more efficiently, which will help your energy bill.
