The Benefits of Clean Air
The Air in Your Home or Office Could Be Making You Sick
Indoor air pollution is now listed as the fourth greatest environmental threat to Americans by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Airborne pollutants are pulled into your duct system each time your heater or air conditioner pumps air through it. These dangerous contaminants eventually collect inside your air duct system over time, causing your indoor air supply to be increasingly polluted.
Indoor contaminants may include: dust mites, tobacco smoke, household mold, chemicals, airborne allergens, bacteria, animal dander, and carbon monoxide. These contaminants are proven to affect the health and comfort of individuals who are exposed to them in excessive amounts, or over long periods of time. Therefore, failing to regularly remove contaminants from an air distribution system can lead to asthma, allergies, colds, sore throats, headaches, and various respiratory problems.
Improve Your Family’s Health
According to the EPA, indoor air is found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air. Air duct cleaning by USA Pro-Vac removes airborne contaminates such as bacteria, fungus, mold spores, pet dander & pollen, which may help to alleviate allergy & asthma symptoms.
Extend the Life of Your Equipment
9 out of 10 System Failures are Caused by Dirt and Dust
One of the functions of the fan, located inside of your air handler, is to keep the heat exchanger cool. Accumulated dirt and debris can reduce the CFM (cubic feet of air per minute) as much as 50%. This is the most common cause of cracks in heat exchangers. By having your system cleaned, you may prevent pre-mature breakdown & aging of your heating and cooling system.
Reduce Your Energy Costs
According to the EPA, a build up of only .042 inches of dirt on a heating coil can result in a decrease of efficiency of 21%. A clean air conveyance system may help to increase efficiency and therefore may help to reduce heating and cooling costs.

Source removal duct cleaning can help to reduce household dust by removing the dust where it travels most - through your air duct system.
