When you live in Ponte Vedra Beach, you know the air outdoors may be an ideal temperature, but the air quality is often less than ideal. Poor outdoor air quality often drives residents indoors to protect their health. However, if your air ducts are filthy, you won’t be realizing the benefits of breathing safely in your home.
If you’ve lived in your home for more than five years and have not had your air ducts cleaned, the time is now. Call (904) 383-7721 or text (904) 712-2674 and the skilled local technicians at First Coast Home Pros can give you a fresh start and help you breathe easier.
Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned for Your Health
You breathe the air inside your home every day. Even if you have health or breathing issues, allergies, or asthma, you may not notice the level of indoor air quality in your home until something changes.
First Coast Home Pros hears from our customers all the time, marveling at how much better they feel and how much easier it is to breathe in their homes now that the ductwork is clean. They hadn’t even noticed how their home was affecting their health until the issue was corrected.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends having your air ducts cleaned, particularly in cases where mold, excessive dust, and rodent or insect droppings are found in your air ducts.
When You Should Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned
If you’re purchasing a new home, check with the sellers and ask when the last time they had the air ducts cleaned. If their answer is never or if they don’t remember, plan on getting the air ducts cleaned right away upon taking ownership of the home.
If you’ve lived in your home for five years, ten years, or more, and you have never had an air duct cleaning, think about how much filth is built up along the walls of your air ducts. You could have more than a decade’s worth of bacteria, allergens, dust, mold, and pollutants blowing back into your home each time your HVAC system turns on.
If you have recently completed a renovation or construction project, having your air ducts cleaned will help get rid of the chemical and paint fumes, and dust built up around your house and in your ducts.
The Benefits of Having Your Air Ducts Cleaned
Your HVAC system “breathes” hot and cool air in and out. Many homeowners even keep the HVAC fan running when the system is not heating or cooling. When the system, ducts, and filter are clean and operating optimally, the HVAC system does not need to work so hard to pump clean air throughout your home.
However, just through the course of “normal life,” we create a lot of items that negatively affect indoor air quality and are unhealthy to breathe.
- Mold and mildew
- Rodent droppings
- Viruses, germs, and bacteria
- Insect droppings
- Human, pet, and animal dander
- Household chemicals
- Pollutants and particulates
- Smoke or secondhand smoke
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) created by paints, cleaners, aerosol sprays, chemicals, pesticides, and more
Experts recommend cleaning your air ducts every five to 10 years. Waiting longer than that can cause excessive dirt and bacteria build-up that potentially cause severe health issues. Having your ductwork cleaned can improve your indoor air quality.
Be More Energy Efficient and Save Money
A large percentage of the energy you use in your home is for heating and cooling. This makes your HVAC system and related ductwork one of the hardest working mechanisms in your home. When the system, filter, and ducts are dirty, it restricts airflow and the system has to work even harder. The HVAC system pushes harder, is less effective, and costs you more money to run. No one is winning in that situation.
