The Importance of HVAC Duct Sanitization

Every breath you take allows you to continue to live. When you breathe in dirty air, it affects every system in your body, starting with your circulation and continuing straight to your brain. Exercise is great, but in some places with bad pollution, you may actually be doing more harm than good. At Cool Air Mechanical in Buford, GA, we understand the importance of clean air. Here are some things that duct sanitization will help keep out of your lungs.

External Pollutants

Your HVAC is designed to help filter out pollutants, allergens, and, in some cases, pathogens. Depending on the type of filter your HVAC uses, you may have to replace it as much as once a month or once every 6 months. Even so, a filter doesn’t get rid of everything. A good duct cleaning will help to eliminate allergens like pollen and exhaust particles that make it through the system.

Internal Pollutants

You create your own air pollution! Dust is an allergen and where there is dust, there are also dust mites. You can’t get away from them. You can’t eliminate them forever. The best you can do is lower the population living in a certain area for a small amount of time. Washing your pillows and sheets helps, but they can still live in your ducts.

What Lives Above

Yes, your ducts may not be above you. The point is that there are larger creatures that might decide your HVAC ducts are warm and cave-like. Rodents, spiders, and roaches are among the creatures that can be found in your ducts if you don’t have them cleaned regularly.

The cost to replace an HVAC system in Buford, GA, can be expensive, but if you have your ducts cleaned regularly, you’ll extend the life of your system and become aware of any problems before they turn into a crisis. Having your ducts sanitized can help protect your health and your bank account.
