The unit can be seen as your home’s circulatory system, transporting cool or warm air from the air conditioning unit through the building’s air ducts in order to create a comfortable environment. Just like any other system, every part needs to work accordingly in order to yield the best results. If something goes wrong, the results will be less substantial. If your building’s air ducts are dirty or damaged, your air conditioning unit will have a harder time pushing air through the ducts. Air duct cleaning and sealing eliminates this issue.
It’s normal for air ducts to naturally accumulate sizable deposits of dust and other contaminants throughout the years. These deposits can reduce the efficiency of any building’s HVAC system.
Not only do deposits lead to a loss of quality, they can also degrade the quality of the indoor air. This can cause physical discomfort and illness. Moreover, the dirt deposits in air ducts can be breeding grounds for organisms such as dust mites. Simply put, air ducts should be cleaned regularly so your HVAC unit can work as efficiently as it’s supposed to.
More often than, air conditioning units have inefficient filters that trap less than 10 percent of the particles that are circulating in the system. Particles that aren’t trapped by the system’s air filters will accumulate in the ductwork and on the internal components of the furnace or fan coil. By cleaning the ductwork, you can safeguard your health by eliminating potential causes of allergies and respiratory issues. By eliminating dirt, microorganisms such as dust mites, bacteria, and mold won’t have anything to feed on.
Once the air ducts are cleaned properly, B&G Air Conditioning can switch out the old, inefficient filters and replace them with better filters that will filter out a higher percentage of dust particles. This will lead to a healthier, cleaner indoor environment.
Since El Paso is a desert city, it’s easy for homes and businesses to see a fair share of dust particles throughout the year. For this reason, it’s best for home and business owners to make air duct cleaning a priority. Regular cleanings will allow your HVAC system to run smoothly, while using clean, comfortable air.
