Are the members of your house frequently falling ill? How good is the quality of your house? Do you know that the air quality in your house is responsible for the health and well-being of you and your family members? The HVAC system of your house if maintained properly can be a great contributor to good health as it is responsible for circulating cool and fresh air across the household.
The HVAC unit of your house is composed of complex system of ducts. Over a period of time, dust and other contaminants build up in these ducts. Research suggests that on an average, an average home accumulates around forty pounds of particulate matter annually. These particulate matters clog the flow of air across these ducts, which in turn exert undue pressure on the system.
This calls in the need for well-trained professionals for the purpose of duct cleaning. By delegating the task of HVAC maintenance to a professional service provider, you can ensure a clean and hygienic indoor environment while keeping your system up and running for years to come. A clean and well-maintained system will not just ensure an efficient system but also conservation of energy allowing your equipment to run unimpeded.
A professional company is usually licensed and is certified by the NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaner’s Association). The guidelines set by the association require service providers to open all vents and doors of the entire system to clean each and every component of the system including fan motor, drip pans, heating and cooling coils etc. The two step process first requires dirt and other debris to be loosened followed by removing the dirt using a high-powered vacuum. Failure to clean even a single component may result in contamination of the whole system.
However, before you engage the services of a particular company, makes sure you seek estimates from at least three different providers to evaluate the price and the services offered. Besides ensuring that the company is licensed and certified make sure you engage a company that uses specialized tools and equipment’s. Duct Cleaning is an intricate job and requires the assistance of professional service providers. However, you need to beware of companies that claim to be EPA-certified and make uncorroborated claims about the effect of regular air duct cleaning on health.
You will witness marked improvement in the indoor air quality of your homes after proper cleaning of the air ducts of your HVAC unit. All you require doing is engaging a qualified HVAC contractor to ensure that the right job is done.
