Air ducts are essential to the efficient operation of your air conditioning and, in some cases, heating systems. The problem is they are hidden away, and you most likely rarely pay much attention to them. With this sort of domestic – and commercial – installation we tend to have them installed, and then simply leave them to get on with the job! But, there are problems that come with air ducts, and they can lead to you needing repairs or replacement, and at great expense.
Common Air Duct Problems
Air ducts thread through your home and carry air in and out of rooms, as well as from the air conditioning unit out into the open. This act of withdrawing the warm air from the room is the purpose of the system. However, within that air there will be very small but very real particles. These can be dust and dirt, pet and human hair, and any other debris that may flow around or be kicked up from the floor when we walk across it. What happens to these particles?
Over time, the particles will settle in the ducts clinging to the sides. This results in a build-up of dirt that effectively narrows the passage that the air can pass through. In fact, it can narrow quite considerably as you will see in the pictures on this professional HVAC duct cleaners website. As the air cannot get through in the volume it is intended to, the air conditioning unit itself has to work harder. This can put strain on the unit, and lead to failure. Expense is required to replace your air conditioning unit. How can you avoid this? By getting the professional HVAC cleaning and maintenance company in to give your ducts the attention they need.
What Will an HVAC Cleaning Company Do?
The professional team from your local HVAC cleaning company will attend your premises and assess the situation. They will give you a free quote for the job at hand, and will be fully trained and ready to tackle the situation. They don’t just deal with air conditioning but also dryer vents, which are similarly prone to blockages. You’ll find that they work as quickly as possible so as to cause you as little disruption to your daily routine.
They will use the latest and most efficient equipment to clear your ducts of dirt, and will also check for leaks and damage to both your ducting, you’re a/c unit and any fans and other areas of the system. All of these can lead to impaired running of your system, and need repairing before they get to the point where replacement is necessary.
This is one job that, should you endeavour to have it carried out regularly, will cost you less than if you neglect your ducts and allow your equipment to become overworked. Give your local duct cleaning company a call now and arrange for them to check out your system, you’ll find it’s worth it.
