How To Increase Air Quality With Duct and Ventilation Systems
Air pollution is often considered a risk that we confront outdoors. But do you know that pollution levels in our homes and offices can be two to five times higher than in many outdoor spaces? Further, according to the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA], Americans spend nearly 90% of their time indoors. Highly hazardous indoor pollutants include pesticides, toxic household cleaners, exhaustion fumes, smoke, lead or asbestos. However, there are other more common indoor pollutants that are difficult to avoid or even detect. They include dust, dust mites, mold spores, pollen, pet dander etc. Persistent exposure to these indoor pollutants can cause irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. Poor indoor air quality can aggravate respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis and asthma. Further, according to the EPA, the long-term exposure to indoor air pollutants can increase the risk of respiratory diseases, heart diseases, and cancer. There are several factors that contribute to indoor air pollution, including poor ventilation system and dirty ducts associated with home cooling and heating systems. Here is how you can increase the air quality with duct and ventilation systems!

Duct and Ventilation Systems for Better Air Quality
Do you notice a musty smell when you walk into a room in your home? Are there water marks on the ceiling? Is mold accumulating in your kitchen, closets or bathrooms? Are the walls in your house damp? Maybe air in your living room feels stale? These are signs of inadequate ventilation i.e., not enough clean air is circulating through your home and the unclean air that a household typically generates is not leaving the home. As a remedy:
- Install a new ventilation system or renew the existing one.
- Opt for natural ventilation i.e., install additional doors, windows or trickle vents to allow outdoor air to enter and flow through the house.
- If natural ventilation is not an option, rely on mechanical ventilation to improve indoor air quality. Mechanical ventilation typically includes ductwork associated with home heating and cooling systems.
- If possible opt for hybrid ventilation system i.e., the combination of natural and mechanical ventilation outlets.
- Opt for a mechanical ventilation system that offers quality ducts, pure air, clear airflow, easy to use and installed by a trusted technician.
- If a functioning mechanical ventilation system already exists, make sure the ductwork associated with it is cleaned periodically.
While there are no EPA issued guidelines, it is recommended that the ducts of a ventilation system are cleaned when the accumulated mold, dust and debris in the ductwork starts to clog the air supply. The aforementioned infestations inevitably accumulate in the ductwork. However if traces of such infestation appear in the air released from the ventilation system, it is a strong indication that your ductwork needs cleaning, repair or in some instances replacement.
Air filtered and circulated through a clean ventilation system lowers humidity, controls condensation, circulates pure hair, saves energy, removes odors and dampness and protects your building structure and assets. More importantly, it improves the indoor air quality and guards the health of your family.
We will make your home air cleaner, healthier and safer. We even offer free air duct inspections so you can see just how much dirt is inside your ducts.
