St. Louis HVAC & Air Duct Cleaning Company
The furnace and air ducts act as your home's "respiratory system". Your system "inhales" through the return system and "exhales" through the supply side. Your system can become "congested" when filled with contaminants and debris. Clean and open, the system can breathe and function properly. Allergy sufferers can benefit greatly by reducing the amount of "triggers" that are present in ductwork....

Read below to see how the benefits of having your air ducts cleaned by St. Louis Air Duct Cleaning and HVAC Service Company outweigh the costs.
Hey St. Louis! Clean Air Ducts Result in Safer, Healthier Air for Your Family to Breathe
Most Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors. Therefore, indoor air quality can have a significant impact on a person’s health. In addition, our exposure to pollutants is 5 to 10 times greater indoors than outdoors. This is because outdoor air will dilute the allergens in the air, while indoor air traps and intensifies harmful pollutants.
If someone in your family suffers from respiratory allergy symptoms, the removal of unwanted dirt and allergens in your air ducts can significantly improve your family’s quality of life. Dust and other harmful pollutants enter your heating and cooling system through the return side of the system as well as from some exterior sources. Since most homes have inefficient air filters, which trap often less than 10% of particles, an average of 40 pounds of dust can collect in your ductwork per year. These harmful allergens are then distributed throughout your house when your heat or air conditioner is turned on.
Dangerous indoor and outdoor allergens that can build up in your air ducts and throughout your heating and cooling system include:
- Pet Dander
- Dust Mites and feces
- And much more
To best reduce your allergy symptoms, St. Louis Air Duct Cleaning and HVAC Service Company recommends frequent cleaning and sanitization of your entire heating and cooling system.
Clean Air Ducts Benefit by Lowering Operating Costs and Increasing System Efficiency
Research has shown that cleaning you air ducts can allow your entire heating and cooling system to run more efficiently. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a buildup of 0.042 inches of dirt on your heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease of efficiency by 21%. Since dirty air ducts can become clogged with dirt and debris, cleaning your air ducts will increase the amount of airflow and reduce friction within your ducts allowing your heater and air conditioner to run easier.
The Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service found that 9 out of 10 heating or air conditioning system failures are caused by excess build up of dirt and dust. Therefore, cleaning your air ducts along with the rest of your heating and cooling system can actually extend the life span of your furnace and air conditioner. This means fewer hassles and costly repairs or replacements for your heater or air conditioner.
In addition, you will also save money on your monthly energy bills if you have your air ducts cleaned. Clean air ducts result in shorter running times for your heating and cooling system since the systems can more easily deliver the air throughout your house. Therefore, with clean air ducts, you will save money on air conditioning costs during the humid St. Louis summers and save on heating bills during the chilly St. Louis winters.
