Duct Cleaning In Peoria, AZ

Why You Should Consider Having Your Air Ducts Cleaned in Peoria, AZ

If you’ve never considered getting your home’s air ducts cleaned, perhaps it’s time to do so. There are many reasons why, of course, but the main one is to keep your air flow clean and pure in your home. Cleaning your air ducts regularly should be done for anyone, but especially those who deal with:

  • Pets
  • Cigarette or cigar smoke
  • Home renovations or remodeling
  • Those with asthma or allergies

Those that suffer from allergies or asthma, as well as young children and elderly people, tend to be more affected by the contaminants that get collected in your air ducts. Your air ducts collect so much dust and other contaminants that not cleaning them is prone to creating health problems for you and your family. A common, six-room house can collect up to 40 pounds of contaminants in a single year. What are those contaminants you ask?

  • Dust
  • Dirt
  • Pollen
  • Pet hair
  • Dander
  • Chemicals
  • Bacteria
  • Dust mites
  • Fungi

Some of these, such as bacteria and fungi, can pose a serious health risk to everyone in your household. Every time you turn on your air conditioner or heater, you blow those contaminants throughout the house, and they’re recirculated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Your air quality suffers, which in turn could cause your health to suffer, although there are other causes that would pose more of an issue to anyone, not just those with respiratory issues.

You should definitely consider getting your air ducts cleaned, as soon as possible, if:

  • There is visible mold growing inside the ducts or on your HVAC system
  • Ducts are home to insects or rodents
  • Ducts are clogged with excessive dust or debris

If any of these three are an issue, there’s usually some underlying problems that need to be fixed on top of the cleaning. Having professionals, such as Morehart Air Conditioning & Heating, come in and clean your ducts is a lot easier and, in the end, more cost effective than trying to do it yourself as well. If you’ve never cleaned your air ducts before, you’re at risk of injury or damaging your ducts (or just spreading the contaminants further).

On top of the air quality, if your air ducts are dirty, you’re likely spending more on energy costs than you should be. Dirty air ducts cause your systems to have to work harder to fulfill the same job that a clean duct would provide, causing your machines’ life pan to shorten, and more energy (sometimes nearly 40% more energy) needing to be used. Filters can only help so much (especially if they aren’t replaced regularly), and your ducts will still get dirty. So, cleaning your air ducts will not only save you money in energy costs, but keep you from needing to replace your HVAC system earlier than you should have to.
