We hear on the news what the day’s air quality is going to look like. This lets those of us living with allergies or sensitivities prepare ahead of time for how we will go about our day, if leaving the house is necessary. A predicted poor air quality index typically sets the stage for us as citizens to spare the air—drive as little as possible to not release harmful vehicle emissions, don’t burn in fireplaces or the like which sends unhealthy particles into the air. Stop and think for a minute: is poor air quality just outside?
Anyone with the mindset that indoor air is always healthier than outdoor air will be shocked to find out otherwise. The air quality in your home can be just as poor as the outside air, but it does not seem like a huge concern to homeowners until they start feeling ill. Unless an Internet search is done or a home inspector clues you in to your home’s air quality being the culprit, a homeowner may never know the problem—dirty air ducts.
Why clean them, and what does my home’s duct system have to do with indoor air quality?
Improving the air quality in your home begins with professional air duct cleaning in Village. Your home contains an intricate design of vents and ducts, which act as air distribution channels throughout the home or building. What this means is that all the breathable air pumping through the vents and ducts leads to every room in the house, hence your home’s air quality is largely determined by these channels.
A home’s ducts have a lot to do with air quality. If the insides of the ducts look dirty, you notice a lingering odor when the HVAC system is in use or simply suspect poor home air quality, then you must get your air ducts checked. Since new dust is created every day, it has to settle somewhere—like in vents and ducts—before it gets recirculated several times over after being pulled back into the HVAC unit. In order to give you and your family the best air quality possible, cleaning ducts yearly is essential.
It’s true that dirty ducts don’t always mean unhealthy air is floating around. However, such air contaminants can lead to other health issues for individuals with respiratory problems, serious environmental allergies or certain autoimmune disorders. Or, new health problems can be developed from breathing in air duct contaminates over a period of time.
There’s also a pretty big bonus to keeping your HVAC and air duct channels clean. When you have a clean HVAC system and you maintained it, it does not overwork itself to keep you cool or warm. If the HVAC unit is using less energy, then you too are using less energy, in turn you save money on your energy bills!
