Air Duct Cleaning in Birmingham, AL
Your ductwork functions as the lungs for your Birmingham home. Keeping it clean increases the likelihood that your family — and your HVAC system — will always have fresh, clean air to breathe
How A Dirty Air Duct Affects Your Health
There is no scientific evidence that duct cleaning alone prevents health problems, but it certainly makes sense that the cleaner your air ducts are, the less chance there is for microorganisms to breed and spread throughout your home. Following are some health conditions that contaminants hiding in your ductwork can aggravate:
- Sinus infections
- Respiratory infections
A thorough cleaning every three years or so goes a long way toward eliminating the worry that a dirty AC air duct will affect the health of those you love.
Get Better HVAC Performance With Periodic Duct Cleaning
Although the debris that collects in dirty air ducts often adheres to the metal and never becomes airborne, this buildup does affect the efficiency of your HVAC system. The more buildup you have, the greater the resistance to airflow. This resistance means your system has to work harder to push the conditioned air through your ductwork. This increased workload means more wear and tear on your equipment. Periodically cleaning dirty air ducts benefits your HVAC system in several ways:
- Increases the energy efficiency of your system
- Extends the lifespan of your equipment
- Reduces repair costs
- Lowers utility bills
Signs Your AC Air Duct Needs Cleaning
