When constructing a new home, one of the first things that is installed in the home is the HVAC system. That includes not only the furnace and its components, but also the ductwork. We all know that the process of building a new home is a dusty, dirty job. Therefore, everything that is installed in the home after the HVAC system is known to leave behind dirt and dust that can get in the ducts of the HVAC system and cause problems for it in the future if it’s not properly cleaned out.
In an effort to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, many contractors will turn on the HVAC units once they have them installed and use them while they are working inside the home and finishing the construction process—that means the dust and dirt will get into the ducts. This is especially true if sheet-rock or painting contractors have the units running when they are trying to cure their materials quickly. So even though your home is brand new, the dust, solvents, and other airborne chemicals used in the building and construction process will be in your home’s air ducts the moment you move in.
Air is Circulated in Your Ductwork All Day Long
The air in a home is recycled throughout the home between 9 and 12 times a day, so beginning preventative maintenance on HVAC units as soon as they are installed is essential to keeping them clean and contaminant-free.
If preventative maintenance on ducts doesn’t begin right away, then the air that the new homeowners breathe in could be contaminated and unhealthy.
