Summer is almost here, and Mr. Duct Cleaner wants to know if you are cooling the dirt in your HVAC system and ducts.  How is that working for you?

Ever set up a fan and then block it accidentally with something?  That blockage shortens the reach of the air and drastically cuts down on the cooling of the room.  The easiest way to fix this problem?  Remove the paper from the fan.   What about the dirt in your ducts?  That is easy too, contact Mr. Duct Cleaner and schedule a professional cleaning.  Cleaning your HVAC system and ducts can help the efficiency of your cooling system and improve your indoor air quality at the same time.

NADCA reminds us that just as the easy-to-see surfaces in your home get dirty over time, your home’s HVAC system pulls contaminants and air pollutants like dander, dust, soot, and various allergens right into your air ducts — and then recirculates that air throughout your home an average of five to seven times per day.

All those unseen particles are generated through normal, everyday life; despite routinely replacing filters, your home’s HVAC system gets dirty with regular everyday use.  Given a year’s time, the AP news estimates that over 40 pounds of dirt can accumulate. That dirt has been trapped inside during the winter, and now we are getting ready to close the doors and windows through the summer heat, trapping it all again.

Since your air ducts are a favorite hiding place for all that dust, dirt, and allergens to linger, those dirty ducts can contribute to larger health issues — especially for those with respiratory conditions, auto-immune disorders, or asthma and allergies. Indoor air pollutants can also lead to irritated eyes, nose, and throat, as well as headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.

Take the paper away from the fan and get your entire HVAC and duct system professionally cleaned before summer hits.  Contact Mr. Duct Cleaner for your free estimate.
