The summer months may be officially over, but in South Florida summer temperatures are persistent all year long, meaning our air conditioners are constantly running. If you’ve never had your air ducts cleaned or haven’t had them cleaned in over a year, you may be putting your health at risk and spending more money each month on preventable expenses. According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), professional air duct cleaning should be completed at least every two years, depending on the circumstances. Due to high temperatures and humidity, air duct cleaning in Miami is crucial to the maintenance of not only your air conditioning unit, but your home and health as well.
Constant use of your air conditioner causes debris, dust and other allergens to accumulate in your ducts, restricting the air flow from your HVAC unit. This causes your air conditioner to use more energy and work harder to achieve a desired temperature, which in turn, causes your energy bill to go up. Clean air ducts increase the efficiency of your HVAC unit which will save you money on your monthly energy bill.
The dust and allergens that get trapped in your air ducts contribute to indoor air pollution. According to the EPA, indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Air duct cleaning in Miami allows you to breathe cleaner, less contaminated air which can also save you money on potential health bills in the future from respiratory issues that are caused by air pollutants.
