Dirty Air Ducts are a Health Risk

Indoor air quality is everyone’s concern, and your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Contaminants in the air, such as dust, pet dander, or chemicals, can re-circulate through a home 5 to 7 times per day, eventually causing a build up in your duct work. This build-up can have a severe effect on your health!

Did you know that 4 out of 6 people who suffer from allergies do so because of the fungi and bacteria in their air duct system?

Dirty Air Ducts Waste Energy

According to the US Department of Energy, 25-40% of energy used for heating and cooling a home is wasted due to dirty air ducts. Contaminants, even a buildup of .042 inches, can make the coil in your system less efficient, making the system work harder and shortening it’s life. Keeping your system and coil clean can save up to 30% on your utility bills.

Should I have my Ducts Cleaned?

The answer is yes if:

  • Your heating/cooling system has not been cleaned in 3 to 5 years
  • You have pets
  • You or a member of your family have allergies, asthma, breathing or immune problems
  • There are smokers in the house
  • Your home is brand new or has been recently remodeled (floors sanded, walls removed/added, etc.)
  • If your family suffers from allergies while in the home but not in other homes
  • There is mold or mildew on registers on registers usually found in bathrooms
