AIR DUCT CLEANING
Cleaning your air ducts regularly is one of the most important services that Pro Ace Heating is proud to provide. Not only is air duct cleaning good for your central heating system and removing dust and allergens from your home, but it is also a great way to save money by reducing energy consumption by allowing your HVAC appliances to be more efficient.
Five reasons your heating and cooling system and your air ducts should be cleaned as part of a regular home maintenance routine are:
- Money Saving
Removing as little as .4 inches of dust from heating system will reduce energy consumption up to 21 percent. This can save you considerable money on your utility bill.
- System life
It is estimated that nearly nine out of ten central heating and air conditioning systems fail or breakdown because a proper maintenance routine was not performed. Airduct replacement parts in an HVAC system can be very expensive and total replacement can cost thousands.
- Indoor Air Quality
Many consider air duct cleaning vital to maintain healthy indoor air. Dust, allergens (pollen, pet dander) and toxins (mold, mildew, rodent droppings) are commonly found in air ducts. If air ducts are not cleaned regularly these particles can be released into your home. Even if family members do not suffer from allergies the particles can cause severe respiratory problems, among other things.
If family members suffer from allergies, air duct cleaning may be necessary to provide a safe haven for allergy sufferers. Air duct cleaning can drastically reduce the amount of allergens that are present in a home.
Dust, mold and bacteria in an air duct system will create a musty smell in a home that no amount of air fresheners or candles can eliminate. Regular air duct cleaning can eliminate this problem almost entirely.
There are also specific events for which a professional air duct cleaning is recommended:
- Water or other liquid inside ducts (broken/leaky pipe or roof)
- Condensation from air conditioner building moisture inside ducts
- Flooding or other natural disaster
- Major Fire in home or nearby
- Mold or fungus buildup in home
- Animals or insects found in duct system
- Home remodeling
- Moving into a new home
- Major appliance installation
