There are some areas of your Phoenix home that are impossible to clean properly on your own; they could also be making you sick. The air ducts for your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) unit could be housing enormous amounts of dust, dirt, mold and other irritants. This doesn’t necessarily mean that your air ducts are damaged and should be replaced. Having your ducts cleaned by a professional could help reduce the irritants in the air inside your home, but it’s important to keep a few things in mind when considering this service.
Clean Ducts Help You & the Family Breathe Fresh Again
The EPA has not yet seen enough evidence that duct cleaning removes irritants in your home’s air. However, there is a wealth of anecdotal evidence available from those who’ve had their ducts cleaned. They report an improvement in allergies, respiratory ailments and even feel more alert and less fatigued than before they had the service.
Like every other part of your home, ducts should be cleaned regularly. Clean ducts allow for better, more efficient airflow and help your HVAC system’s performance. Aside from the purported health benefits, air duct cleaning can easily pay for itself with lowered heating and cooling costs.
When to Replace Ducts
Ducts can almost always benefit from a thorough cleaning, but sometimes ductwork is so severely damaged that it should be replaced. If your ducts have been subjected to flooding or other environmental damages, they may have to be replaced. Mold can grow in damaged ductwork and become nearly impossible to eradicate. If you find yourself in this situation, you may need to consider replacing the ducts to prevent future issues.
Quality & Experience are Essential for Great Service
From heightened allergies to more frequent respiratory problems, poor air quality and dirty ducts can cause lots of issues that affect your health as well as your wallet. Improving the indoor air quality in your Phoenix home may result in fewer allergies and better health overall, clean ducts also allow your system to work more efficiently.
