CLEAN YOUR AIR DUCTS AND REDUCE YOUR HEALTH RISK
There has been growing awareness of the health issues and respiratory problems that can arise from the pollutants in interior spaces. Indoor air quality solutions begin with a complete duct cleaning. If you are seeking to reduce pollutants in your home or to create a healthier work environment, cleaning your duct system is an important action to take. Frosty’s Heating and Cooling, Inc. provides a thorough cleansing of your building’s entire duct system with a focus on safety and protection.
Effects of Ducts on Indoor Air Quality & Health
We often think of pollution as something that happens outside the home or business. But according to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is one of the top five risk factors to public health and can be anywhere from two to five times more polluted than the outdoors. Some of the primary factors contributing to poor indoor air quality can be pollutants building up in the air ducts of your home or business. Dirty air ducts can lead to polluted air circulating through your home and affecting the quality of the air you breathe.
Poor indoor air quality in your home or workplace can have significant impacts on your health, including both short-term and long-term effects. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 90% of respiratory problems can be attributed to poor air quality. It can also lead to headaches, dizziness, fatigue, exacerbated allergies and irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. Long-term effects can include heart disease and even cancer if certain pollutants are present.
Importance of Air Duct Cleaning
Your air control system recirculates the air you breathe five to seven times a day, so it’s extremely important to ensure that air is clean and healthy. Air duct cleaning consists of thoroughly cleaning all components of your air control systems, including registers, grilles, diffusers, heating and cooling coils, ducts, fans and more. Our experienced technicians at Frosty’s Heating and Cooling, Inc. will work to ensure all of the elements of your heating and cooling systems are clean and pollutant-free. We’ll also identify whether there are potential problem areas in your system that are contributing to a buildup of pollutants. Areas with moistures present, for example, can lead biological growth that can contaminate the air in your living space.
While air duct cleaning can be beneficial for most homes or businesses to improve the indoor air quality, it’s particularly important if:
- You’ve noticed substantial biological growth on elements of your heating and cooling system
- There are rodents or insects that have infested your air duct system
- Your air ducts are clogged with dust and debris
All of these issues point to significant pollution flowing from your vents and require prompt action. In addition to cleaning the ducts, we’ll work to help you identify why these issues occurred in the first place so you can help prevent further contamination down the road.
