Considering the National Air Duct Cleaners Association estimates 40 pounds of dust, including allergens and dirt, is created each year in the average six-room home, the air in your home can be polluted as well.
And more can be floating around if you have pets, smoke cigarettes or cigars indoors, are in the midst of a home remodeling project, or have any sources of mold or mildew–visible or unseen.
When it comes to your heating and cooling system, ducts act as the entry and exit points. Air is pulled through the return ductwork to be heated or cooled and then is pumped back through the supply ductwork back into your home. Air coming through the return passes through a filter, which can help to trap dust, pet hair, and other allergen sources. However, it is not a catch-all system, even when changing regularly at the recommended four to six weeks. Over time, pollutants can build up on the internal components of your heating and cooling system, including the blower, heat exchanger, and cooling coils.These can increase the dust and dirt passing through your ducts and entering into your home. And since your HVAC circulates the air within the home, the pollutants never escape–that is, without a thorough cleaning.
Whether you or someone you live with has asthma, allergies, or health concerns, or you are just interested in keeping your home as clean and pollutant-free as possible, cleaning the indoor air you breathe is important. In addition to good health, keeping a clean heating and cooling system will also help to ensure that it is working properly and as efficiently as possible. With ductwork hidden behind walls, knowing if they’re dirty isn’t as apparent as other, more visible areas in your home. Eliminate the guesswork, and use these indicators to know when your air quality might not be at its best.
Keeping your home clean, regularly replacing furnace air filters, and wiping down supply and return vents are all routine ways to help keep indoor air quality at its best.
