May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month
Every year around this time, millions of Americans suffer from seasonal asthma and allergy symptoms. Ah, the comfort of your own home, laying there with the cool air conditioning on, breathing that clean indoor air. It sounds so nice and safe, doesn’t it? Well, did you know that the EPA claims that homes can be up to 5 times worse than the outdoors when it comes to pollution, allergens, dust, dander, smoke, insects, rodents, feces, dead skin, viruses, and more things that add to the irritants that you breathe every minute in your home while the A/C is on?
Every time you light a candle, dust off your counters, shake out a blanket, turn on the fan, spray some perfume, finish a DIY project, cough, sneeze or blow out that candle… a lot of things airborne end up in your ducts. Think of how much dust accumulates if you skip out on cleaning for a week. Now imagine how much stuff builds up, then blows out of your HVAC vents over however many years you last cleaned your vents!
NADCA suggests a thorough cleaning of your ducts every 3 – 5 years to keep the air quality in your home to a healthy standard. General HVAC maintenance every 6 months and changing your filters every 90 days is a general rule to help your air conditioning and heater run efficiently. Not only does cleaning your ducts help with the air that you and your family breathe, but also helps your HVAC system run smoothly to prevent early damage and costly repair bills.
For you and your family’s comfort and health, as well as HVAC efficiency and energy savings, here are a few reasons to schedule your air duct cleaning today:
- It’s been more than 5 years since you last cleaned your ducts
- Your filter is caked with dust and dirt
- You are noticing more dust and having to clean more often than normal
- You or a family member is regularly sneezing or coughing in your home
- You have pets
- Someone smokes in your home
- You see insects, webs, or rodents in or around your home
- You are working on home improvement projects
- You recently moved into a new home with previous owners
- Your home is a new construction build
- You see dust in and around your vents
How to choose a reputable duct cleaning company you can trust:
Hire only an NADCA certified company that is responsible for performing to the highest of industry standards. A proper duct cleaning service costs between $600 and $1,000 and addresses every aspect of the system that air passes over, including the furnace, air coils, vents, returns, registers, diffusers, the full length of accessible air ducts, and the central system.
Reputable cleaners will use negative air machines with HEPA filters, provide before and after photo documentation, and offer a complete satisfaction guarantee.
An air duct company that quotes around an hour or less will not properly clean all aspects of your HVAC system and waste your time and money. It generally takes several hours.
Beware of the $200 specials. Companies will use low advertised prices to bait you, then upsell to much higher prices to get the proper cleaning. These companies start out dishonest and generally end as a bad experience.
Look at reviews and experiences customers have with the company. Look for repeat customers that are loyal and believe in the duct cleaning service provided.
