Imagine what would happen if air did not circulate and flow through your Boulder City home. Too hot, too cold, stale, smelly, humid, dusty – all consequences of lack of proper airflow. While you may not think about it very often, your HVAC system helps prevent all of this and keeps your home at a comfortable temperature too.
When our air ducts are not in good working order, we do start thinking about them. Stagnant air, dust and allergy issues, poor indoor air quality, and more are the result of air ducts that are poorly maintained. The experienced technicians at Ambient Edge can help. One call to (702) 723-4704 can cover your air duct repair, sealing, and cleaning needs.
Repairing Your Air Ducts Can Save You Money
The majority of your ductwork is likely hidden behind walls, under floors, and in ceilings. Concealed air ducts can mean problems with them can be obscured and go unnoticed for years.
Up to 30% of your home’s air circulated through ducts is lost due to issues like holes and leaks, according to EnergyStar. Not only is that costing you money in higher energy bills, but it can also result in very poor air circulation, “hot spots” or “cold spots” in your home, and more.
Poorly performing ductwork and torn, leaky ducts need to be repaired. Even if you’re okay with wasting energy and spending more on energy bills, damaged ducts can be hazardous. They can pull gases such as carbon monoxide into rooms causing poisoning or even death. This is called backdraft.
If there is a particular room in your home that is always sweltering or constantly freezing, it’s a good sign that you have a duct leak or damage. Unbalanced airflow is a symptom of ductwork issues.
When broken, torn, or unsealed ductwork is left to further deteriorate, your HVAC system (your furnace and central air conditioner) has to work much harder to circulate cool and warm air throughout your home. This can strain the system, lead to premature wear and tear, and even burn out your HVAC system.
Properly Sealed Air Ducts Keep Out Pollution
If your air ducts have always been unsealed or improperly sealed or the seals have worn, torn, or broken down, you can save money and increase your home’s comfort by having them properly sealed.
Correctly sealed ductwork can improve your home’s air quality by helping keep allergens and pollutants out of the air you breathe and circulated through your HVAC filters. Duct sealing can also ensure hot and cold air are more evenly distributed through your home.
Because sealing your air ducts makes them more energy-efficient, you can even save up to 20 percent on your energy bills with properly sealed ductwork.
Clean Air Ducts Improve Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality is important and a big part of indoor air quality is the cleanliness of air circulated throughout your home. Since we live in a very dusty climate with wildly variable temperatures, you know how hard your HVAC system (and associated ductwork) works.
If you have lived in your home for, say, 10 years, you have at least 10 years of dust, dirt, dander, allergens, pollen, mold, and other indoor air pollutants caked up inside the ducts. This blows into your home every time the air conditioning, heat, or fan turns on.
If you purchased your home from someone else and do not know when they had the ducts cleaned, or if it was ever done, you could have many more years worth of grime caked up in your ducts than you realize. That’s affecting your indoor air quality and potentially causing or inflaming breathing issues.
How Ambient Edge Can Improve Your Air Ducts
Here’s why it’s important to have Ambient Edge clean your air ducts:
Your HVAC System Will Work More Efficiently
When your air ducts are clean and free from blockage, your furnace and central air conditioner do not need to struggle to circulate cool and warm air throughout the house. Clean air ducts allow more air to circulate better.
You’ll Have Better Indoor Air Quality
When pollen, animal dander, dust mites, mold, and other allergens and irritants circulate through your home’s air, it can cause allergies or make breathing conditions like asthma and COPD worse. Breathing in accumulated dust, dirt and allergens can be harmful to your health. The fact that they’ve been building up for many years can make it even worse.
You’ll Have Peace of Mind After Your Renovation or New Home Purchase
If you’ve recently completed a home renovation project or moved into a new home, it’s a good idea to have the air ducts cleaned. Many pounds of dirt and dust will be removed and you can breathe easier. Any remaining construction dust or odors from previous occupants (such as tobacco or paint fumes) can also be alleviated with a thorough duct cleaning.
