Should You Get Your Ducts Cleaned and Sanitized?
Posted: August 24, 2020
The air ducts in your home or business serve as an essential component of your HVAC system. They assist in circulating the air flow from your cooling and heating equipment to the rest of your Melbourne, Florida home. It is important you ensure this component of your HVAC system is in working order and as clean as possible.
If not properly maintained your ducts can create the perfect environment for bacteria, mildew and other biological growth to thrive.
What is Ductwork?
To understand how its cleaned and why its necessary, a good start is learning what ductwork is and how it works. Ductwork references the metal venting that connects your central HVAC system to the vents that distribute air to each and every room of your home.
Here at Brevard Cooling, we use highly specialized equipment to introduce and move a safe sanitizing solution through your duct work, our solution quickly and efficiently removes dangerous deposits, odors and more.
Benefits of Duct Cleaning & Sanitizing
- Improved Air Quality - The most popular reason for having your ducts cleaned / sanitized is to improve the air quality in your home. Airborne particles, dust, and biological growths like bacteria can build up in your ductwork over time. Every time your AC is running, these particles are flowing throughout your home and into your lungs. Poor indoor air quality can lead to a slew of symptoms, including more severe allergies, headaches, sinus issues and even higher instances of catching colds.
- Fewer Repairs - Having clean and clear ducts can improve the efficiency of your HVAC unit, mainly by reducing the strain on the system.
- Improved Energy Efficiency - Adding to the point above, when your ducts are professionally cleaned and operating with improved efficiency, it will consequently lead to a lower cost of the utility bills! Ductwork that is clogged with any kind of dirt or debris will impede the airflow, and cause the system to work harder to reach the temperature set on the thermostat.
