Indoor air is often filled with more pollutants than outdoor air, mainly because it becomes trapped inside your home, permitting bacteria and contaminants to accumulate. Homeowners know that air duct cleaning and repair costs can add up quickly, particularly when potential problems are not discovered immediately. At Duggan's One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning®, we recommend taking the following steps to improve indoor air quality and keep your air conditioning system performing at optimal levels.

Clean Consistently

Regular, professional cleanings allow a technician to detect early issues with your duct system. Besides, allergy sufferers, pet owners, asthma patients, and smokers all report that scheduling air duct cleaning and repair every three to five years reduces allergens and creates cleaner indoor air. Other reasons to have your HVAC system cleaned include visible mold growth, pets, or excessive amounts of dust in your home. When relocating to a new house or remodeling or renovating your current home, we recommend that you consider hiring an air duct cleaner.

Control Your Ventilation

Multiple sources of indoor air pollutants exist in every home. In fact, some sources, including furniture, air fresheners, and building materials, release pollutants on a constant basis. Other sources of intermittent pollution include smoking, furnaces, space heaters, cleaning products, and pesticides. If sufficient ventilation is unavailable, the exchange rate between outdoor and indoor air is low enough to allow pollutants to accumulate to unhealthy levels, leading to a dirty duct system or other issues. Increase the ventilation by utilizing fans and opening windows whenever possible.
