Without proper cleaning, contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder, which shortens the life of your system and wastes energy. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of energy used for heating or cooling is wasted. Having a proper commercial air duct cleaning can eliminate these unneeded costs. Even with filters, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through daily use, making it harder to maintain the temperature you desire. With a cleaning your system will improve cost effectiveness. According to a report detailing office cleaning services in Toronto, dirty air ducts are linked to increases in the frequency of overall cleaning services required.
Indoor Air Quality
Every day as employees, managers and other building inhabitants occupy your building, they generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants like dander, dust and chemicals. These contaminants enter your heating and cooling system and on average are re-circulated around six times a day. This can affect your building’s air quality as over time this creates a build-up of unwanted contaminants in the ductwork.
While these contaminants doesn’t exactly mean unhealthy air, the situation can trigger larger health issues and create problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders and environmental allergies.
How The Process Works
Through an air duct cleaning process the entire heating and cooling system is placed under continuous negative pressure with a vacuum to stop the spread of contaminants. This pressure allows the removal of fine particles ensuring that they are not released into the living space when the cleaning is finished. This pressure also extracts the loosened contaminants, which can then be collected and removed.
All of these issues are important to consider when hiring a professional for a commercial air duct cleaning. It’s important to protect your business employees and customers, as well as save money on heating and cooling costs. Give us a call so we can take care of it and you can breathe easier!
