As the temperatures outside fall we move back indoors to enjoy sweaters, fluffy blankets, and the wonderful miracle that is gas heating. Modern heating and cooling has come a long way from the days of wood stoves and cracked windows. With heating and cooling ducts running through our homes, air is able to be transferred to any part of our homes in a matter of seconds. However, these crisscrossing ducts become a breeding ground for allergens and pathogens, allowing them easy access into your home.
The Environmental Protection Agency reports that indoor air has been found to be more polluted than outdoor air. Contaminants such as dust, pollen, mold, pet dander and bacteria flow through HVAC systems and get recirculated an average of 5 to 7 times per day. This not only increases the risk of illness in the home but it causes build-up in the air ducts over time, which makes them less efficient and increases energy costs. The U.S. Department of Energy research shows that 25-40 percent of energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. It is important to keep them healthy with regular cleanings by a professional air duct cleaning company in order to keep the air in your home clean and safe.
Indoor air quality is of paramount importance. Dirty air ducts and the contaminants they recirculate in the home can be a major contributor to health issues or worsen health conditions like autoimmune disorders, allergies and asthma. Chem-Dry can help by eliminating these contaminants where they live.
The Chem-Dry Air Duct Cleaning process uses a Negative Air Cleaning method that meets the National Air Duct Cleaning Association’s (NADCA) high standards for healthy impact. Negative air pressure seals the HVAC system to prevent dirt, debris and contamination from entering the airflow of the home and helps ensure a more complete capture of contaminants.
Chem-Dry Air Duct Cleaning service providers have been certified to provide a complete and thorough inspection of your HVAC system. Our professionally-trained technicians will then use our Negative Air Cleaning method to clean the air vents and ducts and provide a healthier home for your family.
