Bad air quality in the home can cause allergies and the spreading of illness especially during flu season. One of the leading contributors to bad indoor air quality is the home air duct system. Air ducts can be full of dust and other contaminants that are spread each time the HVAC system runs a cycle. To help improve the air quality in the home and eliminate allergies and illnesses inside your home. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning will share why air duct cleaning is important, and signs that it is time to clean your home’s air ducts.
Is Air Duct Cleaning Necessary or a Waste of Time?
Living in Southern Nevada, our homes HVAC systems are exposed to a ton of dirt due to our surrounding environment. Within one year, air ducts can accumulate 40 pounds of dust simply by living in a windy desert climate. Along with the contaminants brought into the home, simply we have then added to the accumulation. There are a number of elements that can help contribute to the air ducts contamination. For those that smoke inside their home or have pets often find their air duct system needs more frequent cleaning. Smaller households with no pets can easily go 5 years between air duct cleaning. For larger families, those with pets, and or smokers, the household often needs air duct cleaning every 2 to 3 years. However, at times, certain situations can occur that require air duct cleaning more often. For example, mold, pest infestation, or an obstruction can require an emergency air duct cleaning as all of the cooled or warmed air travels through the air duct system and into the home. Therefore, it is essential they stay clean or every cycle guarantees the spread of dust and other contaminants throughout the home.
Air Duct Cleaning Process
When air ducts need to be cleaned, it requires specialized tools to ensure a thorough cleaning. Additionally, proper air duct cleaning involves more than just the air ducts alone. It includes other components as well. When air duct services come to a home, they clean the supply and return air ducts. They also clean all the grills, registers, and vents. Some companies will also clean the heat exchangers, fan motor and housing, the air handler and condensation pan. However, all air duct cleaning services vary on which components are cleaned. After the air duct systems are cleaned, some dust and contaminants can still be in the home. It is strongly recommended to regularly maintain the air filters as they play a vital role in cleaning the air in the home and much more. To help improve the indoor air quality in the home and extend the need between air duct cleanings, be sure to change the air filters.
