Air Duct Cleaning

A Home Health Necessity

Air duct systems get a workout in most homes and commercial buildings. The transfer of heat or cooled air through an air duct system creates a buildup of dust particles from one season to the next. Keeping air ducts clean and free of particle buildup is a health necessity to keep lungs from being compromised and congested.

To Keep HVAC in Top Operating Condition

An HVAC system that is well maintained annually operates in top condition. All mechanical equipment requires regular maintenance to insure highest quality performance. Heating and cooling equipment that’s inspected regularly and properly maintained also offers greater durability. Air duct cleaning is part of a comprehensive maintenance plan. When air ducts become overloaded with debris and dust particles, the HVAC systems work harder to bypass clogged air ducts. In more humid climates air ducts also collect a certain amount of moisture in the cyclical air streams as air travels through the duct work system. When moisture is added to dust, these particles build up over time and may create a bigger problem. To keep air ducts from this type of build up, it’s important to have them cleaned annually.

Dust Mites in Air Ducts

Air ducts are a breeding ground for dust mites. These are microscopic arachnids that often go unnoticed until start causing allergies in humans. When air ducts are not properly cleaned, dust mites settle into the particles in the duct system. As air is expelled into the room, these dust mites find other areas to nest, such as beds, furniture and carpeting. Keeping air ducts clean is one way to avoid this problem.

Save Energy – Keep Air Ducts Clean

When air ducts become overburdened by high volumes of dust and other residue particulate, the HVAC system works harder to do its job. This generally means higher energy bills. In addition to the discomfort of compromised air in a home or commercial facility, the increase in utility bills for heating or air conditioning becomes another unnecessary burden.

The cost of an annual air duct cleaning is actually a savings compared to the cost of replacing or repairing an HVAC system. The cost of air duct cleaning is also less than the annual cost of health problems related to clogged air ducts loaded with a multitude of microorganisms and impurities.

FAQ

Q: Why do I need to have my air ducts cleaned?
A: Air duct cleaning is crucial to your health and your budget. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that an average six-room home collects 40 pounds of dust, dirt and other allergens throughout the year. If left uncleaned, the allergens are then circulated into the air inside your home, being especially harmful to those with asthma and allergies. The buildup of dust and debris also weakens the performance of your HVAC unit, causing it to work harder which results in higher energy bills. If left alone, this could cause you to have to replace your entire HVAC unit.
Q: How often should air ducts be cleaned?
A: It is recommended that you have your air ducts cleaned at least every three to five years. You should also have your air ducts cleaned if you’ve recently had furnace or ductwork completed, if you’ve recently remodeled or constructed your home and if there has been recent flooding or water damage, as all of these scenarios can cause excessive build-up of sediment, dust and bacteria.
Q: How do I know when my air ducts should be cleaned?
The signs you should look for when determining if you need your air ducts cleaned are: dirty vent covers, dark lines on walls or ceilings, excessive dust on tables and objects, difference in temperature from room to room and a spike in your energy bill.
Q: How does Stanley Steemer clean air ducts?
A: After technicians complete a thorough inspection, they use a HEPA-filtered vacuum system to clean the furnace, evaporator coil, blower and vent covers. Then the vacuum is attached to the main trunk line in combination with agitation tools that loosen and pull out debris that has settled deep within the duct system. After all of that is completed, compressed air is blown through each duct to ensure the vacuum effectively removes all debris.
Q: Why is being asthma and allergy-friendly important to air duct cleaning?
A: Stanley Steemer technicians are asthma and allergy-friendly certified, meaning we provide cleaning methods that have been rigorously tested and proven to effectively remove the majority of allergens in the air, which is one of the main reasons to get an air duct cleaning. We also offer asthma and allergy-friendly certified HVAC filters designed specifically to trap pollutants and allergens while prohibiting the spread and growth of bacteria on the filter.
