According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Americans, on average, spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are often two to five times higher than typical outdoor concentrations. Even more so, people who are often most susceptible to the adverse effects of pollution, including the very young, older adults, people with cardiovascular or respiratory disease, tend to spend even more time indoors.
Breathe easy this summer, improve the air quality inside your home, increase your system’s life, and reduce your energy bill when you schedule a duct cleaning appointment with the experts at Schebler Heating and Air.
Improve Air Quality
Combustion sources in indoor settings, including tobacco, wood heating, cooking appliances, and fireplaces, can release harmful combustion byproducts such as carbon monoxide and particulate matter directly into the indoor environment. Additionally, cleaning supplies, paints, insecticides, and other commonly used products introduce many different chemicals, including volatile organic compounds, directly into the indoor air.
These harmful pollutants can have many health effects on you and your family, including:
- Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat.
- Headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.
- Respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer
Getting your ducts cleaned with the professionals at Schebler Heating and Air can help clear out harmful pollutants, lint, fur, chemicals, and more from your air ducts, helping to overall improve air quality and, most importantly, your family’s health.
Increase Your System’s Life
Dirty ductwork can significantly reduce the efficiency and lifespan of your heating and cooling system.
Over time, toxins and dust can build up on your heating and air conditioning systems. The dirtier these systems become, the harder they have to work to push air through the ducts and keep it circulating. Without proper duct cleaning to prolong the life of your HVAC system, you may end up having to replace compromised ducts, or, worse, entire systems.
