Benefits of Good Indoor Air Quality
Improved Indoor air Quality
The quality of the air you and your family breathes is an important component in your family’s health. Because
Minnesota’s climate necessitates that we keep our windows closed for much of the year, we chiefly breathe air that
has cycled through our HVAC system. If any components of that system are dirty, that can translate into air that is
full of dust, pollen,allergens, odors, pet dander, and more. In fact, the average six-room home produces up to 40
pounds of dust annually - and that’s just through everyday living. If you’ve had construction work recently, extra
dust and debris can enter the system, further contaminating the air.
Getting your air ducts cleaned regularly will help to keep the air you breathe clean and pure.
Aside from the health benefits, regular air duct cleaning helps make your HVAC system more efficient. Air filters
help, but they don’t capture everything. Eventually there is a buildup of dust in your heating and cooling system,
and this grime makes your system work harder. When it’s clean, your system doesn’t have to work as hard, and that
means lower energy bills.
Longer Lasting Equipment
Most equipment failures are due to dust and dirt. When the fan, for example, accumulates dust and debris, it doesn’t
work as effectively to keep your heat exchanger cool. This can cause the fan to burn out, or even for the heat
exchanger to crack. Regular cleanings will keep your system running as it should.
Yes, another benefit of having your air ducts cleaned is that you’ll have to dust less. Because we remove all of the
accumulated dust from, the main pathways air travels through will be clean, resulting in cleaner air throughout your
home. There simply won’t be any dust to be blown about.
