The ducts that supply your Tucson home with conditioned air are easily forgotten. Ductwork is hidden away in attics, behind walls and in crawl spaces. However, ducts are an essential part of your HVAC. They need maintenance as much as the rest of your system.
What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality
Why You Might Need Ductwork Cleaning
Ducts should be inspected every few years for dirty buildup, dust, debris, pests, microbial contaminants and leaks. Your ducts may be fine as they are, but you won’t know unless you look. The consequences of not maintaining your ductwork can be serious.
Dirty ducts can impact everything from health and indoor air quality to home comfort and energy costs. Obstructions, dust and leaks can even affect the cleanliness of your home and the condition of your heating and cooling equipment. A ductwork inspection may reveal that your ducts are dirty, obstructed, excessively dusty, contaminated or leaking.
Our advanced air filter and duct cleaning uses infrared lights. It helps to kill bacteria and other particulates that contribute to:
- Pneumonia or bronchitis
- Viruses and infections
- Headaches and migraines
- Trouble breathing
Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
- Improved airflow and increased indoor comfort: A heavy buildup of dust, dirt, debris and other obstructions in your ductwork can restrict airflow. Restricted airflow can decrease indoor comfort. It can also make your HVAC overwork to push treated air through the system.
- Better indoor air quality: Ducts can collect an assortment of toxic particles that can cause unpleasant symptoms. These impurities can exacerbate allergies and respiratory disorders. They can also cause headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue and irritation of the nose, throat and sinuses. Ductwork cleaning removes these contaminants so they can’t blow into your living space and adversely affect your health.
- Conservation of heated and cooled air: As ducts age, they can develop cracks and holes, especially at the joints. These leaks can allow up to 30 percent or more of your home’s heated and cooled air to escape. Your HVAC must then overwork to cover the losses, and that drives up utility bills. Sealing ductwork leaks can significantly reduce your utility bills.
