Indoor air pollution is a growing concern for home and business owners. While dirty air ducts don’t necessarily pose serious health risks to your visitors, employees or staff, if not properly installed, maintained and operated, your building’s heating and cooling system may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris.
Especially after construction, mold, mildew, dust mites, pollen and animal dander are just some of the contaminants that may be circulating through your central air system.
Major benefits of duct cleaning include:
1. Increased energy efficiency
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 20 to 40 percent of the energy used to heat or cool a building is wasted. Contaminants in the HVAC system, such as dust and cobwebs, cause it to work harder, shortening the life of your system. When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness for you and your business.
2. Improved air quality
Think of your HVAC system as the lungs of your building: it takes air in and breathes air out. Contaminants likes dander, dust and chemicals can get pulled into your HVAC system and be recirculated five to seven times per day. Overtime, your air ducts will have a build-up of contaminants, which can aggravate allergy or asthma symptoms in people with respiratory heath conditions.
3. A longer-lasting HVAC system
Even with filters, your heating and cooling systems get dirty from normal use, harming your HVAC system’s components and shortening its life. Duct cleaning, in conjunction with regular maintenance, keeps contaminants out of your system, preventing breakdowns and reducing your potential costs for repairs.
LCS Facility Group uses the Rotobrush® system, a video-assisted air duct cleaning system, that can maneuver around right angle turns, reducers and multiple bends found in most types of duct systems, in addition to cleaning:
- Flex ducts
- Round metal ducts
It’s the only available system that brushes and vacuums at the point of contact, eliminating the use of harsh chemicals, such as sealers, so offices and buildings are left with clean and virtually contaminant-free air.
