For many people across Ontario the start of the new year will mean the start of something new. Many families across the province will have already planned (or are currently planning on) moving into a new home.
Moving is an exciting process. Whether you are excited to grow your family, renovate a property or simply put your own stamp on a house, moving into your dream home is a thrilling new journey in your life.
However, while moving can be fun and exciting, it’s also important that you stay on top of the more boring parts as well. Before you move your family into their new home, it’s first time to think about some of the finer details.
Work can be done much easier, faster and safer when the house is empty, so it’s always a good idea to save a few days before you move into your house to ensure it is in the perfect condition for your family to move into it.
Make sure you have checked if the windows need to be cleaned, the carpet needs to be washed, and most important of all clean your air ducts and replace your furnace filter.
So, why is cleaning your air ducts in your new home so important? Georgian Duct Cleaning has listed three reasons here:
1 - Improve the efficiency of your new home
When buying a new home it’s impossible to know just how much the previous owner has cleaned their HVAC systems, without having a professional come look at it. To ensure they are running efficiently, these systems need periodic cleaning to ensure they are working at their optimum efficiency.
A professional air duct cleaning will make your heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit cheaper to run, and will also prevent the unit from being damaged by debris and dust that has been collecting by the unit over time.
2 - Ensure your family has good air quality
This is particularly important if any of your family members suffer from allergies or asthma, since dirty air filters can lead to poor air quality and exacerbate their symptoms. If air ducts are not cleaned they can collect dust, dirt, mold, bacteria, construction garbage, pet hair, building materials, fungal growth, flakes of skin and hair - which are then blown around your home and contribute to worse symptoms.
By cleaning your air ducts and replacing your furnace filter, you will improve the quality of indoor air within the walls of your house and as a result improve your family’s health.
3 - Keep your new home clean
Once you have moved into your new home, you’ll want to keep it sparkling clean and protect any new furniture you have from damaging mold and dust. By keeping your air ducts clean you will prevent your HVAC unit from releasing dust into your home.
As a result, you'll be able to spend less time cleaning your house and more time with your family and doing the things you love.
