Did you know that the same dirt, pollen and contaminants deposited in the carpeting can also be collected and distributed by your commercial facility’s HVAC mechanical system? The HVAC system is at the heart of your facility, affecting indoor air quality and climate control.
If your air ducts remain clogged for too long, they will work harder to circulate air and your HVAC system will run longer throughout the day, shortening its lifespan. Removing the health hazards at the source can improve the health of your employees, visitors, tenants and customers, as well as increase the efficiency of your HVAC system, saving you money and maintenance.
Indoor air quality can be compromised by dirty air ducts. Everyday occupancy of a building produces contaminants and air pollutants, like dander, dust and chemicals. These are recirculated many times a day through the HVAC system. The contaminants also build up in the ductwork over time.
If the building experiences a catastrophe, like fire, floods, water damage or mold, all of the residual smoke, debris and other air contaminants will further affect the air ducts. It’s important to have the ducts cleaned as soon as possible if you experience such a disastrous event. If left to accumulate, these pollutants can contribute to health issues, especially for people with respiratory issues, autoimmune disorders or environmental allergies.
Another disadvantage of dirty air ducts is the increased energy used. The contaminants in the HVAC system cause the system to work harder and will shorten the life of the system. Cleaning the ducts will improve the efficiency of the system, reducing energy use, thus costs to heat or cool the building.
