Cleaning your air ducts in your commercial property regularly is an important part of regular HVAC system maintenance and helps ensure your system is running efficiently and effectively. With everyday use, commercial air ducts trap various contaminants that are then circulated throughout your building every time the system runs. Things like dust, mold spores and pollen can all be lurking in your buildings HVAC system. So what happens when these things get trapped and buildup occurs in your air ducts? Nothing good. The reasons listed below are why we believe you should have your commercial air ducts cleaned by a professional on a consistent basis.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
When your air ducts are clean and free of dust, pollen, and other allergens, that means it is not freely distributing these allergens throughout your commercial building. And that means the indoor air quality is improved, and those with allergies in your building will thank you. Regularly replacing the filters for your HVAC system can also result in improved indoor air quality. Having dirty filters makes your system work harder and less efficiently, and having no filters can allow allergens to flow freely.
Longer Lasting, More Reliable HVAC Systems
While there is no guarantee that having clean air ducts will make your system last longer and break down less often, proper maintenance removes buildup and debris and your HVAC system will run more efficiently. This reduces wear and tear that shortens the life of your HVAC system. Clean air ducts mean your system won’t have to work so hard, which is good news for you. Do you remember the last time your HVAC system broke down? Was it on the hottest day of the summer, or the coldest day in winter? Increased system demands due to weather are enough to stress any HVAC system, and there’s really no reason to make it worse by having dirty air ducts.
Greater Efficiency and Cost Savings
We’ve already mentioned that clean air ducts help your system run more efficiently, and while this reduces wear and tear this also reduces your operating costs. When your HVAC system is working at peak performance, you are getting the most bang for your buck. When your system works harder or longer than it has to it is using more energy, driving up your costs. Cleaning your air ducts are just one way to improve the efficiency of your HVAC system, but when combined with the other benefits – improved indoor air quality and improved system durability – it’s easy to see why you would want to have your air ducts cleaned on a regular basis.
