3 Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Air ducts are a crucial part of a building’s infrastructure, and, like roofs, you’re never really aware of them until something happens that gets your attention. Whereas a roof might leak, when air ducts require service, you might encounter an unpleasant odor floating around, poor airflow in the building, or mold or mildew building up in your HVAC system. At R.S. Andrews, we know how air ducts gather debris, and we know that there are benefits to cleaning them clean.
1. It’ll Make Everything Smell Better
When your building is giving off a sour odor, anything from chemicals to machinery exhaust, it tends to get trapped in the ductwork because of the dust, cobwebs, and other debris. This smell will permeate a building, as it simply escapes from any duct’s egress points.
2. It’s Health-Conscious
When fresh, clean air is blowing around, all is well. Dirty air ducts, however, can carry allergens through the building. This might not be something that you realize until employees become symptomatic, their health becomes an issue. A regular air duct cleaning every three to five years certainly beats a visit to the walk-in clinic for a nebulizer treatment.
3. It Cuts Energy and Cleaning Costs
Clean air ducts require less energy to operate than dirty ones. An HVAC system must work harder when the ducts are lined with impediments. Spotless air ducts can also make the cleaning process more effective. Cleaning your ducts should be the first step for any deep cleaning routine because it’s there within the system that reaches your entire building, where dust and debris can get blown around and end up anywhere.
