Studies have shown that indoor air can be anywhere from two to five times more polluted than outside air. Most disposable filters remove about 10% of these pollutants allowing 90% to enter the air system, That’s why Blue Team Carpet & Air Duct Cleaning of Seatac, WA recommends installing a permanent air filter that remove over 90% of pollutants The pollutants contain dust, pollen, mold spores, animal dander and much more. These materials collect in the furnace, air conditioner and duct surfaces, just as they do on the furniture and floor surfaces.
From Where does the Dirt in your Vents Come?
All inside air was once outside air, so all of the dust, chemicals, pollen, insects and mold spores in the outside air can be pulled into your central air system. People shed millions of tiny dead skin cells every hour. Cooking smoke, household insect sprays and personal care products are also a source of pollutants. Many construction materials, carpets, wood products and plastics give off pollutants as well. Blue Team Carpet & Air Duct Cleaning of Seatac,WA has seen how much dust construction or remodeling activities can create, many types of dust are produced and can find their way into your duct work. If the duct components were stored outside prior to construction, they may have collected dust, rainwater and even mold before they were even installed in your system.
Clean Systems Use Less Energy
The air in your home circulates through the air ducts of your heating and cooling system five to seven times daily, carrying with it the dust and debris of everyday living. There are three major parts to your air system:
The supply and return grills;
The interior surfaces of the supply and return vents;
The furnace/air conditioner air handler.
All three components need to be cleaned periodically. If only one or two of the components are cleaned, the contaminants from the third component will rapidly contaminate the ones that were cleaned. Depending on the amount of contamination and its location, energy consumption could be increased. If the fan blades, evaporator coil or other control components of the system are heavily contaminated, the system may have to run much longer to cool or heat the occupied space, thereby wasting a lot of energy in the process.
