Why Do Commercial Air Ducts Need to Be Cleaned?
As you go down your list of maintenance items this season, you may come across “cleaning the air ducts.” While you know it should be done, you wonder if it is really necessary. If it has been at least a year since the last time the job was complete, or if your commercial building is particularly dirty or dusty, chances are you need your ducts cleaned. The following are just a few reasons why.
A clean system is a well-functioning system. When your commercial air ducts aren’t full of dirt, dust, and other debris, they’ll allow greater airflow. With greater airflow, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard, which means you’ll cut down on your energy bill. Clean ducts will also keep your evaporator coil cleaner, which will reduce energy use while running the air conditioner.
When a machine doesn’t have to work quite so hard to do its job, it’s going to last longer. The dirt that collects in your ducts can also find its way back to the motor and other moving parts, which could cause greater wear. Cleaning that out of the ducts will reduce the chance of a breakdown.
Improved Air Quality
Dirty ducts equal dirty air. Chances are your commercial air ducts have a layer of pollen, rodent droppings, dead bugs, mold spores, dust, dirt, and other contaminants. Can you imagine all of those particles being forced into the air you breathe? Clean air ducts will reduce the number of contaminants in the air, which can help individuals with respiratory conditions, asthma, and allergies.
