‘Tis The Season To Get Your Air Ducts Cleaned
If you live in Ottawa, there is a high chance that construction is going on somewhere near your home.
Since we have cold, harsh winters, summer is the busiest time for construction. With construction comes lots of dust and dirt in the air. You may not notice that your air ducts are taking in a lot of construction dust in the summer. Accumulated dirt and dust can decrease the air quality of your home and lead to health issues and higher energy bills. Consider a consultation with professional duct cleaning companies in Ottawa to make sure that you and your family are breathing in healthy air in your home.
The following are just a few of the benefits to having your ducts professionally cleaned:
Better Air Quality, Better Health
Since your air ducts are the passageways for air going in and out of your home, they are sure to pick up a lot of dust, dirt, and contaminants. If your neighbourhood has construction work going on, then there will be even more dirt buildup in your air ducts. When dirt, dust, and contaminants build up in your ducts, the air you breathe in your home becomes filled with those contaminants. This can be especially harmful to people who suffer from respiratory health issues and allergies. The contaminants can also be harmful to those without pre-existing health issues if bacteria and mold have built up in the ducts.
Less Strain on Your HVAC System and Your Wallet
Air ducts filled with dirt are strenuous on your HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system, requiring more energy and forced air to ventilate the air through your home. Just like a vent fan in your bathroom, air ducts need to be cleaned of dust and contaminants that are blocking the vent. More strain on the HVAC system means more energy is used—resulting in higher energy bills—and over time, the system will not function properly. Getting your air ducts professionally cleaned will save you money in the long run because your bills will be cheaper, and you won’t have a faulty HVAC system to repair.
If you’re concerned about the air quality of your home and the condition of your air ducts—regardless of whether or not there is construction—contact a duct cleaning company in Ottawa. Professional duct cleaning will help you and your family breathe easier.
