Ductwork That Improves IAQ: The Benefits of Green Safety Ductwork
The ductwork in your home is a crucial element in your overall heating and air conditioning system. Without ductwork, effectively distributing heated and conditioned air throughout your home would be incredibly difficult.
While air ducts are designed to distribute air about your home, there is a problem that for many can be quite significant: The particulates and contaminants floating in that air is also being pushed around. For anyone this can be a concern, especially as homes are being built more and more airtight every day. But for individuals who suffer from allergies, asthma, or are particularly susceptible to infection, indoor air quality can be a big concern.
While there are now a fair number of products on the market that help to improve indoor air quality (IAQ), more recent advancements have come in the type of ductwork you have installed in your home. One of them, Green Safety Ductwork, is one of the latest IAQ products that are also environmentally friendly.
Benefits of Green Safety Ductwork
In addition to doing an excellent job of air distribution, Green Safety Ductwork offers significant benefits towards the improvement of your IAQ.
- Agion® Coating – The inner core of the ductwork is coated with a special antimicrobial lining that contains silver. This helps to inhibit the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria in your new ductwork – growth that can occur rapidly without effective treatments. Because this coating inhibits the growth of molds and fungi, the offensive odors that often accompany them are also eliminated.
- GREENGUARD® Certification – The materials used to make up the ductwork all pass the most stringent of standards for low chemical emissions. The ductwork uses Johns Manville Formaldehyde-free™ insulation, which helps make for a healthier home.
- Green Vapor Barrier – The outer layer of the ductwork is wrapped with a green polyester vapor barrier which strengthens the ducts against tearing and helps to prohibit moisture from entering the ductwork.
Green Safety Ductwork can make a big improvement to your overall IAQ. If you’re considering replacing your air ducts, or want to know more about this exciting new product, contact a Service Champions expert or schedule a free estimate today!
