Duct cleaning removes contaminants trapped in your air ducts. Doing so boosts your indoor air quality (IAQ) and protects your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment.
Your ductwork, for the most part, hides behind your walls, ceilings, and floors. It’s easy to forget these ducts need cleaning. If your ducts are dirty, the contaminants get circulated by your air conditioner (AC), furnace, or heat pump. Pollen, mold, dander, and pest infestations can trigger allergic reactions.
Service Edge Heating & Air is proud to offer quality HVAC products and top-notch service to our valued customers in the Fayetteville area. Get in touch with us today to schedule a duct cleaning visit.
How Do I Know If My Air Ducts Need Cleaning?
You may not be able to spot the issue with your eyes, but your immune system will likely pick up on it. People with allergies or asthma are especially sensitive to poor IAQ.
Members of your home may experience symptoms like:
- Runny noses
Other factors that can contaminate your ducts include:
- Smoking tobacco products indoors
- Indoor renovation projects that produce fine dust
- Flooding or leaks
How Did My Ducts Get So Dirty?
Dirty ducts are often caused by another issue that should be addressed. For instance, mold needs water to grow—it could be forming in your ducts due to excess humidity or a leak from your plumbing fixtures or water heater. Pest infestations leave droppings that trigger allergic reactions.
In addition to cleaning, Service Edge Heating & Air can diagnose the source of the problem and either repair it or recommend the next steps. We believe prevention is key. That’s why we recommend that our North Carolina, customers change their HVAC filter every 90 days. Doing so maximizes air quality and ensures your equipment doesn’t get overworked due to stifled ventilation.
How Often Should I Schedule Duct Cleaning?
Service Edge Heating & Air recommends having your ducts cleaned every two years. Doing so is ideal for your indoor air quality. It also leaves an unobstructed airway for your heating and cooling equipment. However, if you suspect your ducts need cleaning sooner, give our Fayetteville office a call right away.
Schedule duct cleaning right away if one or more apply:
- Inordinately high utility bills
- Signs of pest infestation
- Mold or mildew in your vents
- Recent indoor construction
Why Is Maintenance Important?
It’s always easier to address problems sooner rather than later. When our specialists spot something wrong with your HVAC equipment during a maintenance visit, they can quickly address it. As a result, you’ll avoid a costly repair.
Over time, it's pretty common to find small tears in your ductwork. Leaky ductwork losses can reduce your energy efficiency by up to 20 percent. Our team can detect leaks with thermal technology and patch them, saving you money on utilities. Maintenance also helps you get the maximum mileage out of your home comfort system, extending its lifespan.
