At Reid’s, residential air duct cleaning is one of our specialties. Indoor air quality has become a more visible issue than ever before. It’s a fact that your home’s air ducts accumulate dirt and dust over time. In order to ensure acceptable indoor air quality, it is important to get your air ducts serviced and cleaned occasionally.
According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), a typical six-room home may have up to 40 pounds of dust created annually through everyday living. That’s a lot of dust! To make matters worse, your heating and cooling system takes in this dust through the air ducts and spreads it throughout your home or office.
The experts say that air duct cleaning offers the following benefits:
Less house cleaning, especially dusting. Dust that builds up in home or office air ducts is blown out into the living spaces and leads to dustier surfaces, thus more cleaning needed.
Better indoor air quality. Dirty air ducts can irritate asthma and allergy symptoms for sufferers of these conditions, which increases chances of being sick.
Energy and money savings. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that a buildup of only .042 inches of dust in ductwork can decrease heating and cooling efficiency by more than 20 percent. Clean ducts can save energy and cut your utility bills.
The highly trained residential air duct cleaning technicians at Reid’s are prepared to quickly and professionally clean the air ducts in your home. The condition and age of your cooling and heating system are key factors in your home’s indoor air quality. Having poor air quality can be the result of a variety of issues, including the buildup of excessive amounts of dust and debris and even the growth of mold in extreme cases.
In order to ensure that the indoor air quality in your home is acceptable, cleaning your air ducts should be part of your overall maintenance plan. At Reid’s, we also recommend that you change your home’s air filters once a month as well. It’s important to note that if your air ducts are clogged, your heating and cooling system has to work harder to get air into your home. Having clean air ducts in your home not only improves your indoor air quality, but also ensures that your heating and cooling system do not become overworked.
