According to the EPA, the quality of indoor air can be 7-10 times worse than outdoor air. You can help counteract the effects of poor indoor air quality by scheduling a heating system duct cleaning with the Penn-Mar Oil Company professionals.
Clean Ducts Promote Better Air Quality
The air ducts in your heating system can become contaminated with dust, debris, and pollen over time. Ducts are also susceptible to mold growth if there is moisture present. When your heating or air conditioning system is on and hot air is pushing through the ducts and out the registers, these particles can come along for the ride and decrease the quality of air in your home. These contaminants can also cause health problems for you or your family members, particularly those who are susceptible to allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues.
Lower Your Energy Consumption
In addition to reducing the number of air contaminants in your home, cleaning dirty air ducts can help reduce your energy consumption. When contaminants such as dust particles and mold build up in your ducts, your system has to work harder to push the air through your ducts and out the registers. This means your system becomes less efficient and uses more energy to heat your home.
