Air duct cleaning is the process of clearing debris from air ducts, registers, grilles, and other components of a forced air system. Since the ducts are hidden behind walls and above ceilings, the only way to effectively clean them is with a high-powered, truck-mounted vacuum and compression system. No other method guarantees a complete clean. Like furnaces and air conditioners, air ducts require proper cleaning and maintenance to perform at their best. Keeping ducts free of dust and debris can also help reduce your energy bill and improve the air quality in your home.
ServiceMaster of Savannah recommends more frequent air duct cleaning in Savannah if you have indoor pets, or are sensitive to indoor air quality. You should also have your ducts cleaned if you have recently renovated your home, as this will increase the amount of dust in your forced air system.
Here are some reasons why proper air duct cleaning is important:
Protects your equipment
A dirty ventilation system can lead to clogged air conditioner coils, contaminated blower wheels, and other issues that may result to costly repairs. Making duct cleaning a part of your maintenance routine will extend the life of your AC / Heating HVAC system.
Maintain clean air
The air passing through the ducts is the same air your family breathes each day. If left unchecked, ducts can get allergens like pollen and pet dander, which can reenter your living space through the supply registers. Though these particles aren’t necessarily a health hazard, they can pose problems for people who have asthma, allergies, or other respiratory issues. Having your air ducts cleaned will help improve air quality and keep your air free from airborne particles.
Boost energy efficiency
Dust and debris restrict the flow of air to and from the components of your HVAC system. When the ducts are clogged, your furnace or air conditioner has to consume more energy to do its job. Keeping ducts clear will ensure that your units can perform at peak efficiency.
