Your air ducts are like the lungs of your home – they are responsible for circulating the air your breathe throughout your home. Thus, it is very important that they are kept clean. While heating and cooling systems do use filters, normal use can still cause the system to become dirty over time. HVAC cleaning is an effective way to not only ensure that you and your family are breathing clean air, but can also extend the life of your system and increase its efficiency.
Regular duct cleaning can remove contaminants such as:
- Pet hair and dander
- Mold and other biological growth
- Cigar or cigarette smoke
- Dust and dirt
Poor air quality caused by dirty ducts can lead to a variety of health problems. Allergy and asthma sufferers, the elderly, and young children are especially susceptible to illness caused by breathing contaminated air. A little preventive maintenance on your system could make a huge difference to your home and your health!
Cleaning Your Dryer Ducts Can Prevent Fires!
If you have a clothes dryer in your home, it is essential to periodically clean the ducts. Over time, lint can build up inside the duct. Lint is an extremely flammable material, and if it builds up enough, the heat of the dryer could spark a fire. If your clothes are taking longer to dry, if your dryer is extremely hot to the touch, or if you’ve noticed a burning smell during a drying cycle, lint buildup may be the culprit.
Dryer vents should be cleaned at least every 12 to 18 months. If it’s been longer than that or you have never had your dryer vents cleaned, now is the time to call Airrific!
