With winter fast approaching here in Ontario, it’s time to think about undertaking some office maintenance chores. These will ensure your business is energy efficient and help save you money on those expensive utility bills.
Getting your commercial air ducts cleaned may be the last thing on your mind as the temperature begins to drop, but there are actually huge benefits attributed to having a professional air duct cleaning.
So, what actually is an air duct cleaning, why do you need to get your air ducts cleaned and how can your office benefit from getting it done before winter truly sets in? Georgian Duct Cleaning answers your questions here.
Why do I need to get my office’s air ducts cleaned?
The vast majority of business owners either forget or never even realize that they need to get their air ducts cleaned. However, air duct cleaning is a crucial aspect of ensuring your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) unit runs efficiently, and that your indoor air quality is healthy for employees.
Without an air duct cleaning, your air ducts will develop a buildup of bacteria, mould, blockages, objects and dust over time. Without cleaning this buildup away, your HVAC unit will have to work significantly harder to warm your office during winter, and your indoor air quality will suffer greatly.
How will my business benefit from an air duct cleaning before winter?
There are a variety of benefits that your business will realize from an air duct cleaning before winter, we have listed the four key benefits here:
1 - Save money with more efficient heating
No matter how small or large your office building is, if you own and manage the property you’ll know just how expensive those monthly utility bills are. This is particularly true in the winter when you’ll have the heating on almost constantly.
Dirty air ducts will only make this worse. It takes significantly more energy for your HVAC system to push air through clogged ducts, meaning your heating system will be working harder to produce less heat.
Clean air ducts, however, allow air to circulate freely and more effectively. This means your HVAC system will be able to warm every room in your office with ease, saving you money on those monthly energy bills.
2 - Reduce the need to dust
Office cleaners are expensive, but if your office is small then you may even take this chore on yourself. Either way, getting your air ducts cleaned means less dust in your office, either saving you money on cleaners or the time it takes to clean the office yourself.
3 - Improve the health of your employees
Dirty air duct filters will lead to poor indoor air quality, which results in a lack of productivity in the workplace and even employee absenteeism. From poor indoor air, employees can develop side effects such as catching the flu, headaches, fatigue, sinus congestion, exacerbation of bad allergies, coughing, sneezing and much more.
Thankfully, an air duct cleaning will significantly improve your indoor air quality and the health of your employees. Air duct cleanings are particularly important for the health of those who suffer from allergies, asthma and respiratory diseases.
4 - Extend the lifespan of your heater
HVAC units are expensive, and, unfortunately, that can significantly impact your company’s bottom line. With an air duct cleaning, however, you will ensure your system is able to live as long as possible.
A heating system that’s clean and well-maintained will last significantly longer than one that’s dirty and poorly cared for.
