Excessive pollution and airborne irritants from the outside world can easily find their way inside your air duct system. Check out our helpful tips below to learn how you can improve your indoor air quality.
Leaks and water damage can affect the efficiency of your home’s air circulation
If your ductwork has suffered any leaks or water damage due to weather or other causes, have your air ducts repaired properly and thoroughly cleaned to make sure there’s no residual dirt or debris left inside them. Most specialists recommend that your air ducts be thoroughly cleaned every three to seven years, depending on how much dust and debris have accumulated. Contact our team for further information and to get your air ducts professionally cleaned.
Energy savings can be a direct result of a clean air duct system
If you’ve found your energy bills have increased recently for no apparent reason, consider that it may be because your HVAC system is being forced to work harder because of a buildup of dirt and debris in your air ducts. By keeping them clean, you will reduce your monthly energy expenses and provide yourself and your family with cleaner and safer air to breathe.
The material of the dryer ducts is essential for their effectiveness and safety
The best material is rigid metal as it is strong and fire-resistant. Besides, it’s harder for lint to get stuck to the smooth surfaces. If the exhaust system has to have a good number of turns, then semirigid metal will be the best option. While flexible plastic ducts are attractive due to the low price and easy setup, they are the least effective and safe.
