Call Wiz Team in Illinois (IL) today! All Air Duct System’s should be inspected by a reputable, certified Air Duct Cleaning professional.
Just by everyday normal use of your home or business, a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants are created. Your air duct system acts as the respiratory system of your home or business, continually re-circulating the air on average 5 to 7 times per day into every room throughout your entire space. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants within the duct work. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living.
Think of it this way: Your heating and cooling system acts as the lungs of your home. The system breathes air in and breathes air out.
Although you can’t always see them, these contaminates cause indoor air pollution and may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune diseases and some environmental allergies.

According to the EPA on average, Americans spend about 90% or more of their time indoors and indoor levels of pollutants are occasionally more than 100 times higher than outdoor levels. Now you can see how your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is important, and having a clean, properly functioning heating and cooling (HVAC) system is vital to maintaining a clean healthy and comfortable indoor environment.
Cleaning your HVAC system has several benefits not only for the quality of the indoor air, but for the efficiency of the system itself.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25% to 40% of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the HVAC system such as dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other airborne contaminants cause it to work harder and shortens the life of your system. Although filters are used, your HVAC system still gets contaminated with micro dust through normal everyday use which can cause dirt and debris to get trapped within your Air Duct system and should be removed regularly.
When an Air Duct system is cleaned correctly, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to an improved cost-effective budget. If you decide to have your Air Duct system cleaned, it is important to make sure the service provider is qualified.

Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer Vent Cleaning is an important part of your home maintenance and fire prevention. Dryer vent cleaning may not seem like a priority, but the truth of the matter is that this oversight can be very costly. It is estimated that approximately 15,600 fires are associated with clothes dryers per year. Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct blocking air flow, causing excessive heat build-up.
Recent industry studies have shown that an excessive amount of lint in the dryer vent may add an additional $15-$25 per month to your electric bill, which is about $300 a year in unnecessary energy cost. Typical dryer vent cleaning services cost less than $300, so it just makes sense to follow the manufacturer recommendations and have your dryer vent professionally cleaned at least once a year.
If you have not had your dryer vent cleaned in the past 12 months, Call us Today, you’ll be glad you did!
