AIR DUCT CLEANING

Having a safe, secure and healthy living environment is important for you and your family. While you may work hard to keep your home clean and free of bacteria and germs, other dangers may lurk in your home that you aren’t aware of. Bacteria, mold and other harmful contaminants can hide in your heating and ventilation and cooling (HVAC) system. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) states that indoor air has been found to be up to 70 percent more polluted than outdoor air. Failure to regularly clean and maintain your HVAC system can lead to an increase in health complications. AAA Duct Cleaning has the know-how to keep you and your family healthy and safe every day!

Air Duct Cleaning Facts

  • EPA claims indoor air has been found to be up to 70% more polluted than outdoor air (EPA)
  • Children are more likely than adults to be affected by polluted indoor air (Dept. of Consumer Affairs)
  • The average 6 room house collects 40 pounds of dust a year (Discover Magazine)
  • Air ducts have more germs than a chicken coop (American Lung Association)
  • A build up of 0.42 inches of dirt on a heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease in efficiency of 21% (EPA)

  • Duct Cleaning Does More Than Clear the Air

Dirty ducts circulate dirty air. They can also provide a breeding ground for a variety of microbial growth such as mold and bacteria, and can even shorten the life of your furnace and air conditioner. Having your ducts professionally cleaned can enhance air quality, eliminate built-up dirt and improve overall air circulation. Your service can also include sanitizing to minimize any microbial growth within your duct work. Best of all, ducts cleaned by qualified service technicians continue to provide all these benefits for an average of 3-4 years.

By having your air ducts cleaned regularly, you’ll help improve the indoor air quality in your home, and enhance the efficiency of your heating/cooling system, which may reduce energy bills. Since the ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality, inspecting the ductwork should be the first order of business. Dirty ducts can circulate odors, contaminates like mold, and irritating dust throughout your building or home.

Dirty duct systems are a major source of indoor air pollution. Airborne contaminants are pulled into the ducts every time the heating and cooling system runs. Over time, these contaminants build up inside the ductwork, creating an ideal breeding ground for mold, bacteria, fungi and other microbes.

Particles drawn into the air ducts also pass through fiberglass filters and infiltrate into HVAC equipment, undermining the performance and energy efficiency of these systems. That can lead to higher repair and maintenance costs, and shorter service life in the long run. According to the EPA, a build-up of only 0.42" of dirt on a heating or cooling coil can decrease efficiency by 21%.

Air duct cleaning is a proactive solution to these problems. It can enhance indoor air quality, improve overall air circulation, eliminate built-up dirt and contaminants, and extend the life of heating and cooling systems.
