Because Of Their Positioning

Heat ducts are positioned just above the skirting and sometimes right at the ground level. Have you ever wondered why is it’s position opposite then that of the air vents?

Heating Vents are positioned lower because (high school science) and also that warmer air is thinner and it tends to move upwards. Since these ducts are positioned down below one can only imagine the amount of grime, dust food crumbs, dirt, tiny things dropped in by your pets and babies would have gotten collected inside them.

Now when you switch on your ill-maintained heating duct, infested with fungus, moulds, dust and other allergens when the weather is already weakening your health, you just are bringing home more trouble.

Some Air duct cleaning studies have shown that on average an American’s interior air can often be from two to five times more polluted than external air. When ducted heating systems, vents, and furnaces get contaminated with fungus, mold, construction debris, bacteria or insulation fibers, air quality inside becomes compromised.
