Air ducts are part of the heating and cooling system in residential homes and commercial businesses. Depending on the time of year, the air being returned and pushed out is either hot or cold, and as the air circulates throughout the house, it picks up dust and debris which is either pushed out into another room or it falls and collects at the bottom of the air duct. Really, you’d be shocked if you took a close look at what’s circulating in your home through your air ducts!
At some point, the air ducts must be cleaned because, ultimately, you and your family are breathing air that’s full of dust and debris.
When to Clean Air Ducts
Seasonal changes, like winter to spring or fall to winter, are a good time of year to clean your air ducts. In addition to home dust and debris, there are many allergens in the outside air that also find their way into your air ducts, particularly in the spring.
Who Should Clean the Air Ducts
There are many companies that offer residential duct cleaning services, but it’s important that you do a little research before choosing a company to ensure they are properly equipped to provide a thorough cleaning and that they have a good reputation. Air duct cleaning may include using specialized blowers, vacuums, and brushes to clean out the supply, intake, and return ducts throughout the home.
Residential duct cleaning providers, like ourselves, really get into the HVAC system of your home. We clean the air handler, registers, grills, fan, motors, housings, and coils of the HVAC system.
Other Reasons You Need to Clean Your Ducts
In addition to the fact that the air you’re breathing could be filled with dust, allergens and other debris, dirty heating and cooling coils, motors, and air handling units make HVAC systems less efficient and susceptible to breakdown. Annual duct cleaning helps keep areas clean and free of debris.
