A home’s heating and cooling system acts as a building’s lungs as the system works to take air in and exhaust air out of a building. Through normal daily activities in a home, people generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, pollen and chemicals. This same dust may contain mold, lead and even asbestos if these materials are present in a home and have become airborne. According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living in a typical six-room home.
“Dirty ducts are one sign that an indoor environment may have issues with air quality,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “We hope this video helps to educate people about dirty ducts, indoor air quality and how to improve the energy efficiency of a heating and cooling system.”
