We don’t usually think about our HVAC system until something goes wrong. But if it seems like your central air conditioner and furnace are working in your Paradise, Nevada home but the temperature and air still seem off, it could be an issue with your air ducts.
Stationary air, allergy flare-ups, hot and cold spots in your home, and poor indoor air quality are all symptoms of air ducts that are damaged, unsealed, or poorly maintained. The skilled specialists at Ambient Edge can ensure your air ducts are clean and safe, and are properly repaired, and sealed. Simply call (702) 723-4704 and we can help.
Clean Air Ducts Are Important for Your Health
The thing about indoor air quality is you often don’t notice how harmful your home’s air is until it is truly clean. As you know, Paradise can be a smoky, dusty place with temperatures that vary widely from season to season. This means your HVAC system and the ductwork that delivers warm and cool air throughout your home have to work much harder.
Think about how long you’ve lived in your home. If it’s at least 10 years, and you’ve never had your air ducts cleaned, that’s a decade’s worth of mold, dust, dander, dirt, indoor air pollutants, and allergens thickly lining your ducts. Every time your heat, fan, or air conditioner turns on, that stuff blows around your home.
Regardless of how long you’ve lived in your home, if you’ve never had the air ducts cleaned and you don’t know if the previous owners did either, you could not only be blowing your own dander, dirt, and dust around but theirs too. And maybe even the owners before then.
Ambient Edge Can Make Your Air Ducts Spotless
Here is what happens when Ambient Edge professionally cleans your air ducts:
Cleaner Indoor Air
Rodent and insect droppings, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, mildew, mold, pollutants, and other irritants are dispersed through your home through your air ducts.
Having your air ducts cleaned regularly (every five to 10 years) can help keep the air you breathe clean.
An HVAC System that Works More Optimally
One of the top reasons an HVAC system runs inefficiently is dirty air filters and duct blockages. When you give your furnace and central air conditioner the opportunity to cleanly, clearly circulate air through your home, your HVAC system doesn’t need to work so hard and is more energy-efficient.
You Purchased a New Home or Have Just Completed a Major Renovation
You’ll likely be shocked by the amount of dust and dirt removed from your air ducts. This is especially important when you need to fully rid your home of construction odors (such as paint or building chemicals) and dust.
Sealing Your Air Ducts Can Save You Money
When your ductwork is sealed correctly, it can help your HVAC system operate more efficiently. It can also help keep your indoor air cleaner and healthier by circulating particles through your filter, instead of unfiltered through a leaky duct.
It is very difficult for the typical homeowner to know if their air ducts are unsealed or incorrectly sealed. The seals on ductwork can break down, tear, or wear out. Properly sealing ducts can help save you money on energy bills and make your home more comfortable.
In fact, leaky ducts can reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system by up to 20%, according to the EnergyStar program.
Repairing Your Air Ducts Can Make Your Home More Comfortable
Damaged, leaking ducts can add hundreds of dollars per year onto your home energy bills, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. That’s a lot of wasted air and a lot of lost money. Additionally, damaged ductwork can make your home much less comfortable and even result in cold or hot zones throughout your house.
Ducts that are broken, worn, leaky, or poorly performing must be fixed. They can “backdraft,” which means they can pull dangerous gas like carbon monoxide into a room and poison or kill someone.
If you’re not sure if you have damaged or leaky ducts, a good sign is to check for unbalanced airflow. If one room or area in your home is always cold, no matter how much you crank up the furnace, or a space that is always hot, it indicates a problem.
If your ductwork is faulty and goes unrepaired, your HVAC system will need to work much harder to do its job. When the HVAC system works overtime, it wears down the components, and can even burn out the furnace or central air conditioner.
