Air ducts can collect dirt and spread it through your home each time that you turn on your air conditioner. The AC can blow dust, dirt, and pollen into your ducts, creating a dirty, dusty, and moldy problem. At Air Pros, we recommend regular duct cleaning to remove all the filth and help improve your indoor air quality while extending the useful life of your cooling system.
Improving the Efficiency of Your Air Conditioner
Dust, dirt, pollen, and even pest droppings can reduce the energy efficiency of your air conditioning unit, as the air in your home is cleaned, cooled, and recirculated by the AC system. It is the air recirculation factor that is imperative for energy efficiency because the air that has already been cooled does not need as much cooling. Should there is a lot of filth in your air ducts and indoor air, however, it can clog your air filter.
When your air filter becomes clogged, your AC unit has to work harder to pull enough air into the system, resulting in low airflow through your vents and high energy bills. Getting your air ducts cleaned can help prevent air filter clogs and help reduce the risk of excessive wear and tear on your AC.
Removing Allergens and Improving Your Indoor Air Quality
It is estimated that indoor air can be up to six times more polluted than the outdoor air. This is because homes and buildings are designed to be extremely energy-efficient, and this means limiting the amount of outdoor air that enters the building and the amount of climate-controlled indoor air that leaves the building. This means that every time someone opens a door, particulate matter, like pollen, dust, dirt, and sometimes exhaust fumes, enter the building. The good news is that most AC filters are designed to remove these particles. Unfortunately, if the filter is old or clogged, those particles can move through your AC into your air ducts, where they form a coating of filth that can be recirculated through the air, inhaled by the occupants, and sent back through the unit.
