The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) claims that there is a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.
Air ducts accumulate deposits of dusts as well as other contaminants throughout the years. These deposits can decrease the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning system. It may even lead to physical discomfort as well as illnesses through the degradation of the air quality that you breathe indoors. Additionally, dirt deposits in the air ducts can become food for dust mites and other organisms. It only makes sense to have your ducts cleaned, especially if you or anyone in your home are experiencing allergies or other respiratory problems and/or excessive dust accumulation.
Dryer Duct Cleaning
Dryer ducts that are clogged with lint not only cause your dryer to work harder and longer which shortens the life of the appliance but are a major fire hazard. It is estimated 2900 home dryer fires happen every year causing death, injuries and the loss of your home. Contact Ductworks Heating and Cooling to schedule your dryer duct cleaning today. We recommend it is cleaned annually.
In houses with forced air heating and air conditioning systems, the ducts are utilized to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a conventional home, however, around 20% of the air that will move through the duct system will be lost because of leaks, holes, as well as poorly linked ducts. The consequence is higher utility bills as well as problems in keeping your home comfortable, regardless of what the thermostat is set on.
A duct system that has been designed well and sealed correctly could make your house more energy efficient, comfortable, and the air safer to breath.
Duct systems leak at fittings, joints, register boots, and other connections.
Leaky ducts could increase the energy bills significantly over time, seriously lowering equipment capacity as well as its performance. Duct leaks may also lead to indoor air quality issues since it pulls irritants and pollutants directly into the house. Air duct leakage is almost always the reason behind the comfort complaints that are experienced by homeowners.
A typical duct test requires sealing of the register openings and pressure testing the duct system to a defined pressure (typically 25 Pascals) through a calibrated fan where leakage can be measured. Then our professional duct specialist will go over the findings, answer any questions you may have and present a solution.
