Air Duct Cleaning and Sealing Frequently Asked Questions
Studies have shown that indoor air can be significantly more polluted than outside air. Most standard air filters only remove about 10% of the pollutants it encounters letting 90% enter your home. When these pollutants are allowed to pass through the filter they can accumulate in your home’s ductwork which can create hazardous indoor air quality issues in your home.
There are quite a few warning signs that indicate that it is time to sell your home’s air duct system. A few of these signs include difficulty adjusting the temperature in specific rooms of your home, a decrease in your HVAC system’s overall effectiveness, and a buildup of dust and debris. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is a good time to have a professional check your ducting system to assess for leaks and inefficiencies.
Mold requires a stable temperature and food source to thrive. When dust and dirt make it through your air filter and into your duct system, it gives mold a perfect environment to thrive. Proper air duct sealing and cleaning can create an environment that will make it more difficult for mold to live and reproduce.
If cleaned properly air ducts should stay clean for three to seven years as long as a high air resistance filter is installed.
Air that is pulled from outside brings with it all of the contaminants outside your home. These contaminants can include pollen, insects, mold, etc. Indoor air is also contaminated by dead skill cells (dust), construction materials, and volatile organic compounds (VOC) from household products.
It is always recommended to clean air ducts before sealing. If ducts are not cleaned before sealing it becomes possible to trap pollutants within your system which can lead to them being introduced into your home.
Just like a dirty air filter will cause the entire system to have to work harder, all aspects of your system should be kept up, kept clean, and maintained to keep your HVAC system working at peak efficiency with as little energy wasted as possible.
