If there’s anything humans and bears have in common, it’s the desire for a clean home. Okay, well that’s not necessarily true, but even Comfort Bear will admit that when I’m indoors, I don’t want to be sniffling and sneezing because of dust.
You might be thinking that’s just a fact of life this time of year, as the cooler temperatures dissipate and all the dust and pollen outdoors gets kicked back up again and makes its way into our homes. Well not to worry! In addition to getting you set up with the right indoor air quality services, my team will also make sure that your ducts are so clean you can eat out of them. Not that you would want to, but you catch my drift.
Comfort Bear here, this time with an important PSA for all homeowners:
Duck cleaning is a scam. Don’t trust anyone who comes to your home claiming that your ducks need to be cleaned. For one, ducks are constantly in the water. And two, it’s called “preening,” not “cleaning.”
That being said, duct cleaning is definitely something you should have performed if you want your HVAC system to run efficiently and smoothly. If there’s ever any concern, you can always consult the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. They were founded specifically to establish the standards for what makes a proper duct cleaning in Kansas City.
Duct cleaning is an essential part of a balanced maintenance tune-up, so I don’t want you to forget about it when it comes time to fire up your air conditioner again this year. Don’t worry, I’ll explain everything:
Here at the office during this time of year, when my coworkers are coughing and sneezing thanks to seasonal colds, they always like to point something out to me: “Comfort Bear, you’ve never taken a sick day! What’s your secret?”
The answer has something to do with indoor air quality.
Duct cleaning is not one of those things that homeowners often think about. After all, the ducts are not the flashiest parts of your home. At least, I certainly hope they’re not. Take it from a bear who knows, though, keeping your ducts healthy is just as important as making sure that your air conditioner is functioning properly. After all, they’re two parts of the same system! The ducts serve as the lungs of your home. If they’re not in good shape, your air conditioner won’t be able to cool your home effectively. Poor ducts also have a negative effect on the quality of the air itself. Let’s take a look at why it’s so important to keep your ducts as clean as possible.
The ducts in a home are among those things that, despite being quite important, don’t get a whole lot of attention. The problem is that your ducts aren’t really things that you can afford to ignore all the time. Ducts that are neglected by their owners will have a tendency to develop a couple of different issues that will impact the efficiency of the climate control systems hooked up to them, as well as the health of the homeowners. One of the best ways to make sure that your ducts remain in good shape is to schedule duct cleaning for them. Let’s go over why duct cleaning is a good idea, and when you should schedule it.
Okay, so we’re coming to the end of winter, but summer’s still a little way’s off. You’re probably still relying on your heating system to keep your home comfortable during the day. So, since your heating system is working fine and you won’t need to use your air conditioner for a while, you don’t need to worry about any HVAC stuff right now, right? Nope! There is still one thing that you probably haven’t done for a while, if ever. Something that could both improve your HVAC efficiency and your indoor air quality at the same time: duct cleaning. Let’s take a look at why it’s such a good idea to have your ducts cleaned on a regular basis.
