Your Health, Your Home, and Your Indoor Air Quality
May 11, 2023
Indoor air quality is an important feature of your home that affects your comfort and your health over both the short and the long term. When your indoor air quality is poor, it can have far-reaching effects that may negatively impact the performance, longevity, and daily operating costs of your HVAC system. Poor indoor air quality can also affect your ability to keep your home clean and increase your likelihood of suffering from asthma and allergy flare-ups. Air duct cleaning and other indoor air quality services are designed to help you maintain a cleaner, healthier, and more energy-efficient home, allowing you to enjoy a comfortable living environment and a lower risk of HVAC problems throughout the year.
Effects of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality typically refers to air that contains a high concentration of particles or contaminants, such as dust, pollen, animal dander, mold spores, smoke, and other debris. In many cases, poor indoor air quality is caused or exacerbated by a neglected HVAC or duct system, which can harbor buildup that is loosened and carried through your home when your furnace or air conditioner activates. These particles can cause a number of negative effects, often triggering asthma attacks or allergy flare-ups in sensitive family members. Excessive dust, pollen, and other particles in your home’s air also means that surfaces accumulate dust and dirt much more quickly, affecting the cleanliness and appearance of your home, even if you dust regularly. The presence of excessive particulate matter and buildup inside your HVAC system and duct system will limit the efficacy and lifetime of the furnace filters you use, while also dramatically increasing strain on your HVAC system. As a result, your heating and cooling costs will rise, while your HVAC system will be much more likely to suffer from minor and major issues that require professional attention and repair.
Benefits of Indoor Air Quality Services
Indoor air quality services such as air duct cleaning are designed to instantly improve the function of your HVAC system and the health of your home. By removing buildup from your HVAC appliances and air ducts, air duct cleaning restores these systems to their like-new condition. The elimination of buildup means there are no particles available to break loose and circulate through your home’s air, reducing the number of available triggers for asthma or allergy problems. Clearing away buildup also prevents loose particles from lodging in your HVAC system or your air filter, thus increasing their overall performance and longevity while reducing the likelihood of heating and cooling problems. Air duct cleaning will leave your home smelling fresher and ensure your living spaces are easier to clean as well, simply because there is less dirt, dust, pollen, and other particles available to create odors or settle onto household surfaces after cleaning.
