Ductwork plays a crucial role in keeping your Orange, Texas, home comfortable 24/7/365, but homeowners rarely think about it. Duct cleaning every five to 10 years, however, pays dividends. Read on to discover the multiple benefits.
Benefits of Duct Cleaning
There are three key reasons why you should periodically clean your air ducts:
- Cleaner house. The same dust and dirt that gets on floors and furniture finds its way into your ductwork, too. Each time your HVAC system kicks on, dust and dirt get blown back into your living environment and affect your indoor air quality.
- Improved indoor air quality. Through normal living, humans and pets generate dust, chemicals, dander, and other pollutants. Your HVAC system sucks up these contaminants and, on average, recirculates them throughout your home between five and seven times a day. Each time you breathe, you breathe in airborne pollutants. Cleaning your ductwork eliminates the contaminants that can seriously affect the health of those who have allergies, immune disorders, or respiratory conditions.
- Greater efficiency. Clean ductwork improves airflow, which, in turn, improves the efficiency of your HVAC system by reducing its workload and wear and tear. Enhanced efficiency means fewer repair costs and more energy savings.
What's Involved with Cleaning Duct Work?
At Thermacon Service Company, we follow the cleaning guidelines established by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. We start the process by inspecting your ductwork through several access points. In addition to visual inspection, we use imaging equipment such as cameras and mirrors that allow us to identify holes or cracks as well as debris buildup. Using special brushes, we dislodge the buildup. A high-powered vacuum collects the debris as it's knocked loose. The last step is applying a sanitizer to destroy bacteria and a sealant to plug cracks or leaks.
