When creating your fall checklist there are several tasks that are typically included, such as contacted Shaner Insurance Group, Inc. to review you insurance policy. However, one of the most neglected, yet important things that should be included in a fall checklist is air duct cleaning. Not only do the air ducts play a vital role in how the temperature of your home is regulated, but they also ensure the air delivered throughout your home is clean and healthy.
Reduced Mold Growth
Homes in Tucson, AZ that have mold can become extremely dangerous for those who live there. Mold can develop and grow in a variety of places throughout your home and the air ducts are no exception. If there is mold in or near the air ducts, it will be carried through the ducts and distributed into your home. Unfortunately, when the ducts are neglected the mold continues to thrive and be dispensed into the air. Routine maintenance and yearly duct cleaning will help to eliminate the risk of mold.
Improve Air Quality
The indoor air, which you trust to be clean may be filled with bacteria, mold, dust mites and other toxins that may cause adverse physical reactions, such as airborne illnesses, breathing problems, allergies asthma and unfortunately, even death. When dust and pollutants build up in the air duct system, the particles will eventually begin to filter into the interior of your home and accumulate on surfaces through the house. This can be especially harmful for those who already experience breathing problems, such as asthma or allergies. The simple solution is to add duct cleaning to your yearly fall checklist.
Beyond the health issues, another important reason to have the air ducts routinely cleaned is to reduce the amount energy bill. When the residue builds up in the HVAC system, including the air ducts, it decreases the system’s efficiency and makes it work harder to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. However, if the ducts are clean, the system is able to cool and heat the environment more efficiency, which ultimately lowers your energy costs.
