Why Should I Have My Ducts Cleaned?
You wouldn’t want to pay extra money every month to breath dust, dander or mold would you? Mr. Green Jeans specializes in cleaning the ducts of your home or business because it is important for both indoor air quality and also energy efficiency. Our insulation seals your home off from outdoor pollutants but it is also equally important to filter the air that is currently circulating within your home. Below are the two major reasons we feel duct cleaning is a vital part of your home’s overall comfort and sustainability.
Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system taken air in and breathes air out.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.
Improved Cost Effectiveness
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.
