A Guide to Air Duct Cleaning
Why should we clean our air ducts? One reason is that the air duct is where most contaminants accumulate and this affects the quality of our indoor air. Hair, pollen, dust, dander, and chemicals are generated by normal activities in the home, and these are all contaminants and air pollutants. These contaminants are dragged into the central heating and air-conditioning system through these ducts and re-circulate them on an average of around five to seven times per day. This means that over-time, this re-circulation would causes a build-up of these contaminants in the duct. So when the air ducts have accumulated a lot of these contaminants it affects the indoor quality of your home, your school or that workplace and when the air we breathe is full of these contaminants then we are at risk of contracting diseases.
Not only that, non-attendant of the flow of air that goes in to your system and out to the room will not only add load to your suction and exhaust motors and belaboring them means consuming more energy. The only way then to cut down on energy use for heating and cooling is by keeping your air ducts and filters clean.
Another disadvantage of having accumulated contaminants in your air duct is that your heating and cooling system will have to work harder to reach its requirements, the when this happens your system can overheat and its equipment life will be shortened.
