Did you know that the level of air pollution inside your home can be two to five times more polluted than typical outdoor concentrations? This surprising fact comes from our Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA also reports that on average, Americans spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. The impact of Covid-19 and social distancing means that we are spending more of that indoor time at home because of virtual schooling, travel restrictions, and shuttered offices. As New Englanders, irrespective of the pandemic, we tend to hunker down during the winter season, making our homes a cozy refuge from inclement weather.
The Effects of Breathing Unhealthy Air
Poor air quality can trigger allergies, asthma attacks, skin rashes, and headaches. Children, the elderly, and people with immune system disorders are particularly susceptible to health issues from poor indoor air quality. EPA researchers also have been investigating the relationship between indoor air quality and issues not typically associated with health such as “student performance in the classroom and productivity in occupational settings”.
Improve Your Home’s Air Quality With An Air Duct Cleaning
Without even knowing, your air duct system could be contaminated with particulates that are harmful for you and your family to breathe. Every time your heating and cooling system turns on, it can circulate dust, dust mites, animal dander, pollen, and bacteria throughout the air inside your home. The most common residential issues our air duct cleaning HVAC experts find upon inspection:
- Dirty air ducts contaminated by rodents, dust, and other materials that pose risks to your health.
- Moldy coils or vents.
- Ductwork not connected in certain areas of the home resulting in too little or too much airflow.
Our air duct cleaning services help remove harmful contaminants that can circulate throughout the air when your heating and cooling system is on.
Air Duct Cleaning With Video
Using advanced video technology, we inspect your home’s air ducts. We look for dirt, debris, animal droppings, mold, moisture, and more to help determine if cleaning is beneficial. If cleaning is needed to help improve your home’s air quality we will show you what we have identified using the recorded video of your system during our inspection, as well as the before-and-after results from the air duct cleaning.
How Your Ducts are Cleaned Makes a Difference
We use the Brush and Vacuum method (the BrushBeast) which simultaneously scrubs and vacuums your ducts, much like your vacuum cleaner on your floors. This solution works by going into each register/vent inside your home so no cutting into your air ducts is necessary.
Clean Air Ducts Improve the Efficiency of Your HVAC System
If your heating and cooling system has not been maintained and air ducts cleaned, debris and dust accumulate, taxing the performance of your HVAC system. When optimal air flow is reduced, your system has to work harder to maintain comfort levels, especially in extreme outdoor temperatures. This translates into higher energy bills.
