It is beginning to get chilly throughout this month and we begin to turn on our heating systems. However, mold and allergens can get trapped in the vents over the summer. Right now is one of the best times to service your system if you haven’t so. According to the Air Duct Cleaners Association, the average household collects 40 pounds of dirt, dust and allergens in its air ducts each year. Over time the build up of mold, dust and debris can affect your health and your wallet. The system does not work the same when the system has not been maintained regularly and even worse the air travels through your house contaminating your air. Your system in addition works harder to maintain the air circulating throughout the home.
