Why You Should Have Your Ducts Cleaned
A vital part of your home HVAC system is your ventilation. The metal piping that runs throughout the walls and flooring of your home is ductwork, or air ducts. In the winter, your ductwork sends warm air from your heating system to the rooms in your home. It is also responsible for the constant circulation of that air. The same holds true with cold air in the summertime. For top efficiency and indoor air quality, you should get your ducts cleaned often.
How Often Should You Clean Your Ducts?
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association says you should clean your ducts every 3 to 5 years. This helps to remove unwanted allergens inside of your ducting. If anyone in your home has allergies, you should get your ductwork cleaned every three years. The Environmental Protection Agency also says to get your ducts cleaned if you find mold. Mold spores can be dangerous when they circulate through the air ducts inside of your home.
Why Should You Call an HVAC Professional?
Ductwork is often found behind walls and underneath your flooring. It looks nice not to have exposed metal piping running through your home. But, this makes it hard for you to access all the ducting in your home. HVAC professionals have special equipment that allows them to access all the ducting. Professionals will use a brush to remove any debris that is present inside of your ductwork.
What’s Included in a Duct Cleaning Service?
When you think of duct cleaning, it’s crucial to think about your entire HVAC system. Cleaning the ducts isn’t going to have a huge effect if you don’t clean the other parts that attach to your ducting. Without adequate cleaning, it would only take one cycle for the dirt and grime to build-up. From there, it can transfer right back into your ductwork.
It’s best to have your entire HVAC system cleaned by a professional. This includes your ducting, vents and registers, heat exchanger, condensate drain, and more. By cleaning your entire HVAC system, you can rest assured that your air ducts stay clean for a while.
