Your HVAC system serves as the respiratory system for your residence. The HVAC system works best when it is free from dirt and airborne contaminants. With this in mind, having professional air duct cleaners assess and clean your air ducts using high quality air filters in your HVAC system and sealing your ducts with aerosol will help bring down the levels of airborne contaminants in your home. This will, in turn, improve your indoor air quality.
Do I Need to Get My Air Ducts Cleaned If I Just Installed A New Heating and A/C Unit?
Getting your air ducts cleaned is a good choice for whenever you change or upgrade your HVAC system. In addition, a new or upgraded fan may operate at wind speeds higher than your old system.
It is best to clean the air duct system just prior to having the new unit installed to cut down on the amount of debris caught in your duct system. This also significantly improves you indoor air quality. Contact the experts at Fresh Air Technologies today at 704-270-2721 to schedule your air duct cleaning service!
Why Should I Clean My Ducts?
According to the EPA, a home can accumulate up to 40 pounds of dust annually. At some point, some of the dust will eventually find its way into the duct system. If your vents are in the floor, you are at a greater disadvantage since dust tends to accumulate more on or near the floor. In addition, construction debris can also cause more dust. Contaminants in the air can affect allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments. In this case, simply changing your air filter may not be enough.
Depending on the quality and condition of your air filter, many airborne contaminants such as pollen, dog hair, and skin dander may pass through your filter and end up in your ductwork. When this occurs, it compromises your entire home’s air quality. Professional air duct cleaning will not only remediate the issue, but will also increase the efficiency of your system, lowering your energy bill.
The experts at Fresh Air Technologies will provide professional air duct cleaning as outlined in the standards established by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. Contact our air quality professionals in Charlotte today to get your FREE estimate!
