Through everyday living in a home, we generate a large amount of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dust, dander, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into your HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day.. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.
While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause problems for those with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.
Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Even with the use of filters, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use. Once the system has been cleaned, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.
Depending on the age and location of your home, number of inhabitants, pets, or health issues – Comfort Masters recommends you have your ducts cleaned every 3 – 5 years if you are concerned with your indoor air quality. Call us today for a free duct cleaning quote.
