Expert Air Duct Related Advice
These professional cleaning tips have been proven effective by our veteran technicians. Many of our customers follow them and if you will too you won't regret it.
Check the visible parts of your HVAC system for mold
If there is mold on the outside, there's certainly mold on the inside as well. A thorough inspection will reveal the size and root of the problem. Mold should be removed without delay. The next step involves taking measures for the prevention of future growth.
Close the windows when your HVAC unit is running
Whenever the HVAC unit is running, especially at full blast, see to it that the windows of your house are securely closed. If they are left open, even just a little, air will escape through them and your HVAC unit will have to compensate for this by working harder, leading to more wear and tear damage as well as higher energy costs.
Protect your air ducts during renovations
The great amounts of dust and dirt produced during home improvement projects will easily find their way inside your HVAC system and start circulating all over your house. That's why you need to seal off all of your air duct system's entry and exit points before starting any work.
Regular air duct cleaning
Having your air ducts routinely cleaned is important as mold and dirt may start to accumulate over time. This can negatively affect the efficiency of your system's ability to heat or cool your home, as well as your energy spending. According to our experts, air ducts should be professionally cleaned at least every six months or so.
The importance of air duct filters
Air duct filters are incredibly important as they trap dust and other pollutants and prevent them from contaminating your indoor air. But after a while, these filters will become clogged with accumulated dirt and will not be able to keep these contaminants at bay as effectively. If this happens, you need to have them replaced.
