All specialists at Air Duct Cleaning Placentia are of the view that effective air Duct Maintenance is important both in the homes and the offices in order to keep healthy and safe air circulating indoors which is free from contaminants and pollutants that may cause health complications for the patients who suffer from chronic respiratory problems or allergies etc. This article discusses some of the scenarios when it is important to clean the air ducts in the homes and even offices. Some of these scenarios include but are not limited to;
1. There is visible mold growth in the sheet metal or other parts of the heating or the cooling systems that are installed. Even the parts of the system that are not visible must be checked in order to detect mold growth. At this point it is important to remember that the mold will reappear in the air ducts if the conditions that stimulate its growth in the first place are not corrected.
2. Air Duct Sanitizing also becomes vital when the ducts become infested with rodents or insects or become clogged due to buildup which may be a result of debris, contaminants or allergens. Sometimes the clogging of these ducts results in reduced airflow which also causes the heating or cooling system to overwork and consume more energy to maintain the desired temperature of a room.
3. Residential duct cleaning is a must in the cases when there is an increase in the stale or musty odors every time the air conditioner or the furnace is switched on. In some cases due to the buildup of debris in the air ducts, the furniture in the room become coated with a layer of dust after cooling or heating systems are run.
4. The cases in which the individuals experience an increase in their energy bills for no apparent reason, is the time to get the air ducts checked. An overworked or lethargic heating or cooling system is one of the main causes of increase in the energy waste. These systems lose their efficiency due to the clogged ducts or buildup which make the system work harder than required to maintain a certain temperature in the room.
It also has adverse effect on the productive life of the system and causes it to consume more energy thus increasing the energy bills.
An efficient system, with clean air ducts will work in lesser time and consume less energy to maintain the same temperature.
