Duct Cleaning or Air Cleaners? What’s Better?

 

There are lots of ways to increase your indoor air quality in Glendale, and using a combination of indoor air quality products and services is the best way to maximize on improving and maintaining healthy indoor air. Part of maintaining healthy indoor air is keeping your ductwork clean. The best way to accomplish this is to schedule a professional duct cleaning with a reputable, reliable company like Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning. So is it better to just schedule a duct cleaning, or install an air cleaner? We’ll outline the benefits of both to help you gain an overall picture of what you may need.

Duct Cleaning

Ductwork can be a magnet for pollutants like dust, dirt and pet dander, and if there is any moisture in your ducts, it can become a breeding ground for biological growth like mold and mildew. Duct cleaning is a service that should be performed every 3-5 years by a professional. Benefits of duct cleaning include:

  • Better indoor air quality
  • Better health, particularly for allergy sufferers
  • Less stress on your air conditioner

Air Cleaners

Whole-home air cleaners are installed directly into your HVAC system. There are several types of air cleaners available, including mechanical filters, electronic air cleaners and UV germicidal lights. Each cleans the air in a different way, and each has some benefits that may be different from others. As a general rule, mechanical filters and electronic air cleaners are used to help reduce allergies, and UV germicidal lights are specifically used to destroy biological contaminants. However, it is best to research each type of air cleaner with a professional to determine what type is best for your needs.

The best way to achieve the highest indoor air quality in your Glendale home is to use a combination of services and products. Duct cleaning is a good choice for everyone as it removes dirt and dust build-up and helps your air conditioning system function better.
