Ash and Smoke Residue in Your Air Ducts
During fire season, ash and smoke fill the air and find ways to settle inside your home. Two of the ways that ash and smoke particles get into your home and decrease indoor air quality are through your fan and vent points as well as your HVAC and cooling/ heating systems.
What’s the big deal? Inhaling ash can result in breathing problems, trigger asthma, irritate eyes/skin and worsen pre-existing medical conditions. You also might notice that dust is collecting quickly on the surfaces in your home, requiring you to clean more often.
Smoke and ash do not go away easily. And along with ash, other substances such as tar, melted plastics, and metals, may be present in smoke and leave deposits on the surfaces of your home and in your air ducts. Since our area went through a particularly intense or long fire season this summer, it may be an indicator that it’s time to clean out your air ducts from the ash particles and grim from the smokey summer as we transition into the fall and winter months.
Cleaning your Air Ducts Benefits Your Health
Clean air ducts and proper HVAC maintenance are an important part of taking care of your home after ash build up from fire season and to ensure that you and your family are breathing clean air in your home. It’s estimated that the average American spends 93% of their lives indoors. Having professionals clean your HVAC and air ducts guarantee that you are spending time at home breathing in clean air.
Air ducts that have never been cleaned or have been left to collect vermin, dust and germs can cause allergies and circulate pathogens in your home. Long term exposure to poor indoor air quality has been associated with increases in risks for cancer, lung disease, and developing cardiovascular disease.
Your home is your space, and you deserve to breathe in air that you can trust and does not lead to any unnecessary ailments.
Cutting HVAC System Costs this Winter
Studies show that one of the biggest sources of energy consumption in your home is the HVAC system. Heating a home can be expensive – especially in the colder months, but it doesn’t have to be this way. There are ways to lower those pesky monthly utility bills. Families can cut their energy bill by as much as 25% to 40% simply by doing proper equipment maintenance and keeping the air ducts clean. When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness. Air duct cleaning is a great way to save money on energy bills as you stay cozy and comfortable in your home!
