Why is air duct cleaning important?

There are thousands of reasons! Having your duct cleaning done helps not only to increase the efficiency of your HVAC appliances but also helps with the removal of various pollutants from the indoor air that we all breath in. Studies have shown that indoor air is 70 times more polluted than outdoor air! Since we tend to tightly shut all windows and doors in our home, breathing in reciculated indoor air can be more hazardous to our health. In a typical six room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living!¬†Scary, isn’t it? Canada’s extreme¬†weather has us relying heavily on our heating and cooling equipment to regulate the temperatures in our homes. Periodic air duct cleaning can help with indoor air quality, decreasing dust build up on home and office furniture, removing human and pet hair, reducing dangerous molds as well as many other air borne contaminants. Therefore, it is important to keep the air ducts clear of debris, allergens, pet hair, mold and dust to ensure your HVAC system is performing efficiently.
