Before moving to the answer let us analyze the point ‘why do we need to clean the AC duct?’

NADCA ACR 13 recommends that HVAC system should be inspected by a qualified duct cleaning service provider annually or biennially depending on the type of facility. If your ducts are clean all the air that flows out from your ducts will also be clean. Prevention is always better than cure. Duct cleaning on a regular basis will remarkably enhance the air quality indoors and will allow you to relish the freshness and healthier ambience. It may be crippling to live with allergies, but one can definitely curtail the risk of exposure to hypersensitive causes that may lead you to exhaustion or suffer from allergic ailments

When we take the case of Dubai, everyone uses air condition 24/7 during summer season and thus it is always advisable to clean your ducts with the help of qualified and certified air condition duct cleaners. Always keep in mind that the air passing through the duct is the air you and your family breath.

Due to the hot and humid weather conditions in the Middle East 90% of the population often spends their time indoors. Because of the lack of natural ventilation and dust accumulation in the ducts and living space, it is seen that the pollutants in the air are 3-5 times higher than outdoors.

Below are the benefits of AC duct cleaning:-

Indoor Air Quality

Your heating and cooling system is considered as the lungs of your building. It is a system, which takes the air in and out. The habitual occupancy increases pollution inside such as dander, smut, chemicals. These contaminants pulled into the HVAC system circulate multiple times a day. As an extension to this re-circulation, contaminants accumulate inside the duct. 

Unclean ducts do not necessarily bring unhealthy air inside your home, school or workplace but it may lead to health issues or the accumulation of contaminants can cause serious problems to the respiratory system or autoimmune disorders.

Save Electricity and boosts efficiency

According to the survey conducted among AC cleaning service providers in Dubai, most of them claimed that 20 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling your home is wasted. System clogged with dirt, debris and dust pushes the AC compressor to work harder and longer increasing electric consumption and shortening the lifespan of the heating and cooling equipment. A clean Air condition system does not need to work hard to maintain the desired temperature and leads to cost-effectiveness.

Protects the equipment

If you keep the duct, cleaning as a part of your routine property maintenance this will extend the life of your system.

Apart from these, the other benefits of AC duct cleaning are mold remediation, thermal comfort, reduced irritants, bacteria sterilization inside ducts and removal of unpleasant odors.

Dust may get accumulated anywhere inside your living space: the sofas, furniture, bedding, floor , lights and so on. However, all these areas can be reached easily but the air duct cleaning needs help from professional AC duct cleaners because the duct is hidden behind your ceiling or walls, and A/C system is a mechanical system that needs mechanical skills.
