What is Air Duct Cleaning?
When we refer to your air ducts in this context, we are talking about all of the components of your heating and cooling system that air passes through. This includes your vents and ducts, as well as your cooling coils, drip pans, and more.
When we clean them, we aim to remove any dust, allergens, debris, bacteria, fungus, and more that has collected in these areas. We do that HVAC maintenance through a combination of processes, but it doesn’t take very long. When we are done, the air you breathe should be cleaner.
When Should I Have My Ducts Cleaned?
If you can look at any of the components to your HVAC system and see dust, debris, or something growing, then it’s definitely time to have your ducts cleaned. Be sure to let your cleaners know what you saw, so they can attack that issue in particular.
If you or someone in your home struggles with asthma, allergies, or another lung/breathing condition, it is a good idea to schedule yearly duct cleanings, especially if you live in a dry, dusty place. Even if you don’t see things that could make these conditions worse when you look at your ducts, there’s a good chance that cleaner air would help the sufferer breathe better.
If you don’t have either of these going on, you can still schedule a duct cleaning. After all, it makes sense that dust would build up in the system over time and removing it can make the system work more efficiently, saving you money. However, if there’s not a problem, this is really up to you. People will say you need to have them cleaned at various frequencies, but there’s no hard and fast rule about how often to have it done if there aren’t any problems.
