My family then breathes them in and is at risk of all kinds of health issues
Living in Orland Park means relying heavily on both the furnace and the air conditioner. The furnace runs from sometime in October until the beginning of May. We start up the cooling system in early June and keep it going until the end of August. While the furnace and air conditioner share the year round workload, the ductwork operates all the time. The supply ducts deliver the conditioned air to the various rooms of the house. The return ducts pull the stale air out of the rooms and send it back to the furnace or air conditioner. When I noticed higher utility bills, inferior comfort and a lot more dust and other particles blowing around in our breathing air, I knew there was a problem. There was definitely an unpleasant smell coming from the vents. I googled my complaints and realized that the issues were most likely caused by dirty ductwork. Over time, it’s not unusual for contaminants to build up inside the network of pipes. Dust, dander, pollen, bugs, webs, rodent feces and even decomposing rodents can be concealed within the ductwork. This buildup restricts airflow, forcing the air conditioner and furnace to work harder, run longer and use more energy. Along with higher monthly bills, the added wear and tear on the equipment increases the risk of malfunction and shortens service life. Plus, when the air passes through the ducts, those pollutants can become airborne and get spread throughout the home. My family then breathes them in and is at risk of all kinds of health issues. Fortunately, I had no trouble finding an HVAC contractor in Orland Park that specializes in duct cleaning services.
