With winter right around the corner, we’re beginning to prepare our homes for the long months ahead. An often overlooked aspect of preparing our homes for the season, is getting the air ducts cleaned. Air duct cleaning is a great way to improve the air quality and efficiency in our homes. An unclean HVAC system works harder to heat our homes, leading to higher energy costs.
Indoor Air Quality
Air duct cleaning is an important aspect of Indoor Air Quality.We spend up to 90% of our time indoors and during the winter, we’ll be inside even longer. That indoor air you’re breathing is recirculated 5 to 7 times a day through the HVAC system. With factors in place, such as seasonal illnesses, asthma, bacteria and other potential respiratory problems, air duct cleaning is a great investment. It may help limit potential health issues and will save you money on energy bills.
A clean air duct can help reduce household chores. A good sign that your air ducts need cleaning, is seeing dust almost immediately after cleaning your home. Black lines under doors and around vent openings are also a good indicator that it’s time to get your air ducts cleaned.
Preventing Fire Hazards
Research has shown lint to be very flammable. Not only does it recirculate through your house, it also accumulates in your dryer duct. Green T Air Duct cleaning not only cleans your air ducts, they can clean your dryer ducts as well, reducing the risk of fire.
Decreased Energy Costs
25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating and cooling is wasted, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Debris and contaminants in your air ducts can cause the system to work harder and this also shortens the system’s lifespan. When your air ducts are clean the HVAC system doesn’t have to put out as much energy heating your home this winter, saving you money.
