A Closer Look at the Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning

3/21/2017 (Permalink)

Having your air ducts cleaned means everyone breathes easier at home!

Air duct cleaning is the removal of dust and other contaminants within the duct work. A powerful vacuum is used to whisk away debris and dust so that it does not circulate in your home. Indoor pollution is an environmental threat to most households. When your cooling and heating system is operating, contaminants are drawn into the duct system. The harmful contaminants eventually build up inside the air ducts. That is why homeowners should invest in a professional air duct cleaning procedure for preventative maintenance.

SERVPRO of Rutherford County has the tools and knowledge to clean ducts effectively. We can tackle smoke, bacteria, chemicals, animal dander, and airborne allergens as well as other contaminants. Here are four benefits of having your ducts cleaned by us:

1) Creates a cleaner living environment
Getting your air ducts cleaned reduces the dust that would circulate in your house. This dust eventually lands on your bedding and furniture. Clean ducts eliminate contaminants, which prevents asthma symptoms and allergies.

2) Extended equipment life span
Some HVAC system failures are a result of excess dust and dirt buildup. The fan located inside your air handler has a role of keeping the heat exchanger cool. Accumulated debris and dust reduces the ability of the fan to function correctly. It is one of the most common causes of premature breakdown and aging of your HVAC system.

3) Enhances airflow efficiency
Vent registers and ductwork that have a buildup of dust restrict the airflow from the furnace to the air conditioner. That means that the system has to work harder to cool or heat your house, which decreases the overall efficiency level of the HVAC system. A clean system is more likely to function at peak efficiency.

4) Save energy
Research indicates that when dirt builds up, even as little as 0.4 inches on the heating coil reduces efficiency by up to 20%. A clean air duct increases efficiency because it does not strain while functioning. Higher efficiency means lower energy bills.

Don’t wait for your ducts to get clogged before you clean them. SERVPRO of Rutherford County is ready to take your call so everyone in your home breathes easier.
