duct cleaning: a good
Most people are aware that
indoor air pollution is an issue of growing concern and increased
visibility. Many companies market products and services intended to improve
the quality of your indoor air. You have most likely seen an advertisement,
received a coupon, or been approached by a company offering to clean your
air ducts as a means of improving your home's indoor air quality. These
services typically range from $450 to $1,000 per heating and cooling system,
depending on the services offered and the size of the system.
is normal for the return registers to get dusty as dust-laden air is pulled
through the grate. This does not indicate that your air ducts are
contaminated with heavy deposits of dust or debris; the registers can be
easily vacuumed or removed and cleaned. Many people consider having
their air ducts cleaned simply because it seems logical that air ducts will
get dirty over time and should occasionally be cleaned. Duct
cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems. Nor do
studies conclusively demonstrate that particle (e.g., dust) levels in homes
increase because of dirty air ducts or go down after cleaning. This is
because much of the dirt that may accumulate inside air ducts adheres to
duct surfaces and does not enter the living space.
Additionally, many service providers fail to
follow proper duct cleaning procedures and can actually cause indoor air
problems. For example, an inadequate vacuum collection system can release
more dust, dirt, and other contaminants than if you had left the ducts
alone. A careless or inadequately trained service provider can damage your
ducts or heating and cooling system, possibly increasing your heating and
air conditioning costs.
