Breathe Easy…Breathe Healthily
In the summer months, we close the windows and turn on the AC. During colder seasons, we close the windows and turn up the furnace. It makes for a comfortable environment… but not a healthy environment. Very little fresh air from outside makes it into our homes due to such factors as the thermal efficiency of windows, doors and home insulation, as well as energy-efficient building materials used in modern construction. According to EPA studies, most homes lack sufficient mechanical ventilation to ensure adequate air exchange.
That means we continue to recirculate stale, polluted air in our homes. Odors can’t escape, so they’re absorbed by carpeting, paint, furniture, and air ducts. All the synthetics in building materials and furnishings, as well as personal care products, pesticides, and household cleaners, are collected and recirculated over and over again. These contaminants and pollutants collect in your HVAC system, especially in your vents and ductwork. Equally intrusive are natural substances that include radon, pet dander, and mold.
Clean Air Services offers solutions that help you achieve and maintain a cleaner, healthier home environment by removing contaminants, allergens, and pollutants from your HVAC system.
HVAC Cleaning and Dust Removal
Six Benefits To Cleaning And Maintaining Your Residential Air System:
1. Improved Health
Regardless of your current health, breathing clean air makes a substantial difference. It’s especially important for those suffering from any type of respiratory ailment or seasonal allergies. Consider the facts:
- Americans spend approximately 90% of their time indoors.
- Concentrations of some indoor pollutants are often 2 to 5X HIGHER than outdoor concentrations.
- 50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air.
- People most often susceptible to the adverse effects of pollution (very young, older adults, individuals w/ cardiovascular and/or respiratory disease) tend to spend more time indoors.
Clean Air Services proprietary process provides odor control. Our cleaning techniques eliminate odors, providing a clean and fresh smelling air environment while removing the contaminants that can aggravate existing health problems…and cause new ones.
Common house dust is more dangerous than outdoor dust. House dust contains dirt, textile fibers, pollen, hair, skin flakes, residue from chemicals and household products, decaying organic matter, dust mites, bacteria, fungi, viruses and a variety of other contaminants.
3. System Efficiency
A buildup of .042 in of dirt on a heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease in efficiency of 21%.
By maintaining clean vents and a clean HVAC unit, you can greatly reduce your heating and cooling costs by increasing system efficiency. Anything that can collect on your heating or cooling coil can act as an insulator, thus retaining harmful heat that’s detrimental to your system’s Efficiency.
4. System Maintenance and Longevity
According to the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service, nine out of 10 AC system failures are caused by dirt and dust. The professionals at Clean Air Services can help keep your system clean. This is one of the most cost-effective ways to maintain your HVAC system for years to come.
5. Fire Hazard Reduction in Duct System
Air is heated through the burners and heat exchanger of your furnace. Burners heat the heat exchanger’s to an extremely high temperature. The plenum located above your furnace accumulates dust over time which will often drop onto the top of the heat exchanger. This creates an ideal situation for a fire within the furnace.
To reduce a fire hazard due to dust, you must reduce the dust. Cleaning air ducts is the most cost-effective way to eliminate dust and reduce fire hazards in your furnace.
6. Reduced Heating and Cooling Costs
Your ductwork can account for up to 20% of your energy usage when you run your heating and cooling systems. excessive dirt and blockages can reduce airflow, which leads to greater energy use and higher utility bills. Air duct cleaning is the first step towards increasing airflow while at the same time removing harmful pollutants, contaminants, and allergens.
