Years of Neglect and Air Duct Cleaning12/18/2016 Back To Blog
The Lungs and Circulatory System of Your Home
If you compare your house to the human body, you can probably say that the air vent system you have operating at home is akin to the lungs because they both deal with air. However, this is only partially true, since it also exhibits qualities similar to those of the circulatory system. To be sure, your HVAC system functions much like these two organ systems in that they both get air (oxygen) and circulate it throughout the house (body). If the air ducts of your home are blocked by thick deposits of dust that have accumulated through years of neglect, then you won't efficiently get air to circulate. This is reflected in the body with the accumulation of tar through years of smoking. If this happens to your home, you need to contract an air duct cleaning service to have it cleaned up.
Compromised Air Quality
The indoor air quality of your home is very important. It is after all what you breathe in when you're at home. If there are contaminants such as dust, dust mite droppings, animal dander or even mold, then you're putting yourself at risk of many negative health effects. Aside from the health effects that you may incur, you will surely also decrease the efficiency of your HVAC system. It will have a harder time cooling or warming up your home because air can't blow in full force. To clear up the ducts, you need a thorough HVAC unit cleaning. After which, you'll also need to take care of air filter cleaning.
Taking a Deep Breath
Only after the best air duct cleaning service can your home circulate clean air optimally. You'll be able to take a good deep breath and your vent system will be able to circulate good quality air as well as manage the temperature efficiently. To keep things this way, don't forget to get an air filter replacement for damaged filters so that dust can't easily accumulate inside your vents again.
