Indoor air pollution is responsible for over 3.8 million deaths worldwide each year.
That’s because a whole bevvy of pollutants and potentially harmful materials can build up in the indoor spaces where we spend much of our lives. We see these things often when we conduct our air quality testing services.
Just how common are these pollutants?
Well, thanks to the modern conveniences in society today, we spend up to 90% or more of our lives indoors.
With that in mind, is it not worth doing everything possible within reason to help reduce or eliminate the bad things that you or your family could be breathing? That’s why you’ll want to consider having air duct cleaning performed every year – popular times for duct cleaning in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario being at the start of spring or at the end of fall.
Duct cleaning can bring an abundance of benefits and can help significantly improve your quality of life. Let’s take a look at just what Ottawa duct cleaning can do for you.
Duct Cleaning to Improve Indoor Air Quality
In the past few years, there’s been a rising concern for pollution and outdoor air quality.
Major cities monitor pollution levels, sending out warnings when pollution is too high and when it’s best to stay indoors. However, what’s not talked about as much is indoor air quality.
As stated earlier, poor indoor air quality can lead to all kinds of health issues, affecting day-to-day quality of life as well as long-term health and wellbeing.
If we want to improve indoor air quality, we’ll need to work on eliminating the common pollutants found in our homes – chief amongst these being:
- pet hair
- tobacco smoke
- chemicals from cleaning agents
… and many others.
Since these are airborne pollutants, they easily get stuck in the air ducts and spread once again through your home every time you turn on your HVAC system.
Duct cleaning can give you peace of mind – removing the significant pollutants from your home, improving indoor air quality and keeping you in better health.
Air Duct Cleaning to Save Money
When there’s too much debris inside the ducts that’s blocking the airflow, your HVAC system needs to work much harder to move air around your home.
Whether you’re turning your HVAC on for heating or cooling, you’ll notice a higher electricity bill at the end of the month.
That’s because you’ll be using much more energy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, fighting the blockage that’s building up in the ducts.
However, with duct cleaning, you’ll ensure that your HVAC can keep the air moving without less effort or energy waste.
Catch Problems Before They Arise with Duct Cleaning
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of regular duct cleaning is that it will help you catch potential issues before they get out of hand.
During the duct cleaning visit, your technician will examine every nook and cranny of the ducts, noticing any minute problem that could quickly turn into an expensive issue.
Catching HVAC and air duct problems early on and fixing them on time can save you time, money, and effort and keep your home maintenance costs to a minimum.
