Do you know that you can save money on allergy medicines and frequent doctor visits by checking the air ducts in your home?
Here are 5 things you should know about cleaning and maintaining air ducts.
- Air ducts are components of a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system in a building. If you have central air or central heating in your home, the conditioned air is being routed to various rooms courtesy of a number of air ducts. You can find these ducts connected to air vents in your ceilings, floors and walls.
- You should clean air ducts at the beginning of the allergy season (March/April/May) on when you have your HVAC system serviced. Removing any build-up, dirt and debris can also help to improve the flow of air in your home, allowing your system perform more efficiently. This will prevent from turning the heat up in the winter and blasting the air conditioner in the summer.
- Household and outdoor allergens are not always captured by our air filters. HEPA air filters will keep allergens from being redistributed around your home. However, if these filters are not replaced regularly, they will not do their job effectively, which may impact your health.
- It is not recommended to clean your own air ducts by yourself. It is possible that you will release an excessive amount dust, debris, mold or allergens into the air, which will then settle all over your home. It is best to leave this job to the experts.
