What happens when you feel perfectly fine outside but come home and allergy symptoms take over? In this case, the allergens affecting you might not be related to spring’s pollen-filled air but to your ductwork. Schedule professional duct cleaning in your Port St. Lucie, Florida, home to enjoy improved indoor air quality.
Avoid Health Risks
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, people spend more than 90 percent of their time indoors, which makes indoor air quality a vital factor in staying healthy. Increased exposure to indoor pollution can have immediate and long-term effects on you and your family. These include persistent allergy symptoms like sneezing, coughing, itchiness, dizziness and fatigue. More serious long-term health risks can include respiratory and heart diseases.
If you feel any of these symptoms when you’re home, your indoor air quality might be suffering due to dirty ductwork. Your air conditioner works by circulating air through your ducts. This air contains pollutants like dust, pet dander and other biological contaminants. After some time, these pollutants start to get clogged inside your ducts. That’s when professional duct cleaning matters.
Reduce Your AC System’s Workload
Do you clean often and your home still seems filled with dust? That’s because as your AC unit cools your home, the air circulating spreads all the pollution clogged in your ducts around the house. Scheduling a professional duct cleaning won’t only keep your family healthy and improve your indoor air quality. It’ll also lower your AC system’s workload, which reduces energy waste and breakdowns.
Call an HVAC Professional
There are simple DIY tasks like changing your air filter that’ll help improve your home’s air quality. But duct cleaning isn’t one of them. Having a professional check and clean your ducts will promote a healthier indoor environment and boost your system’s efficiency.
