Duct Cleaning Morton Grove, IL
Poor indoor air quality can pose a health risk for respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies and COPD. Given that people spend 90 percent of their time indoors, pure air is essential to creating a healthy indoor environment. Regular duct cleaning helps you maintain the quality of the air in your Morton Grove, Skokie or Niles, IL, home or business as well as extend the life of your HVAC system.
Indoor Air Quality
Tobacco smoke, pollen, dust, mold, aerosols and mites are just a few of the contaminants found in indoor air. At Gartner Heating & Cooling, we carry a full line of indoor air quality solutions that can eliminate these harmful pollutants. Our air quality inspectors will check for allergens, measure carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide emissions, check for water which can lead to the buildup of mold and mildew and measure the particulate and humidity levels in your building.
Air ducts distribute heated or cooled air throughout a home or business. If mold or dust accumulates in the duct work, every time the furnace or air conditioner runs it circulates these contaminants as well as the conditioned air. Periodic duct cleaning pays dividends in several ways:
- Stops the spread of pollutants
- Eliminates stale odors
- Increases the efficiency of your HVAC system
- Creates a healthy indoor environment
The buildup of dirt and debris in air ducts creates resistance to air flow, which means your HVAC system will have to work harder to distribute the conditioned air. In addition, dirt and debris can build up on components of your HVAC system. An overworked system does not last as long and leads to damaged parts and early HVAC repairs.
Our technicians have experience cleaning residential and commercial air ducts and have the equipment to handle ventilation systems regardless of size. We clean the registers, grilles, filters, air conditioner evaporator coil and furnace as well as the main supply and return ductwork. Our technicians will inspect the ductwork for leaks or cracks that may have developed and require sealing. Leaky ductwork means conditioned air can escape to the outside and that unconditioned air and pollutants can enter the building. Both of these scenarios lead to your HVAC system running more frequently and result in higher utility costs.
The quality of the indoor air you breathe is as important as the temperature when it comes to indoor comfort. Duct cleaning protects the health and comfort of family members, employees and customers and maintains the effectiveness of your heating and cooling system.
