How To Extend the Life Of Your Forced Air System

Posted on: May 14, 2015

Did you know that upgrading to high efficiency windows and doors can actually lead to a decrease in indoor air quality? While we do believe energy efficient products are a great way to keep heating and cooling costs down, we think having your ducts and vents cleaned are equally important. Why? Find out below:

How High Efficiency Can Hurt

Because high efficiency windows and doors help prevent the transfer of air, they’re able to keep the cool air in and the warm air out in the summertime. This can cause indoor air to become stagnant. Why is this a problem? Poor ventilation can cause pollutants to build up and remain inside your home instead of being able to escape to the outdoors.

How Duct Cleaning Helps

There are two ways to clean air ducts: one system involves a high-pressure hose that passes through the ducts to remove particles and the other system uses a specialized vacuum. As the vacuum passes through the ducts, a brush cleans the inside and the particles are sucked into the vacuum.
By getting rid of harmful particles, such as mold, fungus and other microbes, it allows you and your family members to breathe fresher, cleaner air and can extend the lifespan of your heating and cooling systems.
Is it time to have your ducts cleaned? The indoor air quality experts at ABC have the tools and technology to take care of even the dirtiest jobs so give us a call today to make an appointment!
