TOP 5 BENEFITS OF AIR DUCT CLEANING

1. Money savings
 
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that removing as little as .4 inches of dust from cooling system coils will reduce energy consumption up to 21 percent. This can save you considerable money on your utility bill.

2. System life
 
It is estimated that nearly nine out of ten central heating and air conditioning systems fail or breakdown because they were not maintained properly. Replacement parts for an HVAC system can be very expensive and total replacement can cost thousands.

Many consider air duct cleaning vital to maintaining healthy indoor air. Dust, allergens (pollen, pet dander) and toxins (mold, mildew, rodent droppings) are commonly found in air ducts. If air ducts are not cleaned regularly these particles can be released into your home. Even if family members do not suffer from allergies the particles can cause severe respiratory problems, among other things.

4. Health
 
If family members suffer from allergies or asthma, air duct cleaning may be necessary to provide a safe haven. Air duct cleaning can drastically reduce the amount of allergens (dust, dirt, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, insect and rodent droppings) in the air of a home.

5. Smell
 
Dust, mold and bacteria in an air duct system will create a musty smell in a home that no amount of air fresheners or candles can eliminate. Regular air duct cleaning can eliminate this problem almost entirely.

Excessive amounts of mold and certain types of mold may present health concerns. It is essential for the health of you and your family, as well as the protection of your property, to address the issue and arrange for professionals to conduct mold removal and mold remediation as soon as the presence of mold is identified.
