FAQ about Air Ducts
What is air duct cleaning?
Usually included in the cleaning of air ducts are supply and return ducts and registers, heat exchangers and cooling coils, fans and air handling housing. Duct cleaning services will of course vary depending on which AC company in Dallas, TX you choose. Though, each company will have the same goal in mind: to rid your home of contaminated air.
Why should an air duct cleaned?
Dirty air ducts can result in contaminated air, health problems, high electric bills, and HVAC malfunctions. Need we say more?
Will a dirty air system result in higher energy costs?
Yes. The more dust, pollen, or overall debris that builds up, the less space air will have to filter through. As a consequence, your air conditioning system will have to put forth extra effort to get the proper amount of air through to cool your home. This extra effort will result in a longer-running unit and ultimately higher energy costs.
How often should I have my air ducts cleaned?
If it’s been a few years then it’s probably time to have your home’s air ducts cleaned. A thorough professional cleaning can maximize clean airflow for the next 3-5 years. That is, if you maintain the system through yearly tune-ups and quarterly air filter replacements.
What does it cost to have a whole air system cleaned?
Factors include size of the home and the amount of time it has been since your system’s last cleaning. Generally speaking, a system cleaning will cost anywhere between $100-$500. AC professionals in Dallas, TX should clean air ducts, along with all other integral parts of the air conditioning system.
How do air ducts get dirty?
Think about air ducts…they are tight, dark funnels that often go months, if not years without being attended to. Thus, they are popular areas for mold and mildew to grow. Any malfunction within an HVAC system can expedite the build up of unwanted debris in the ducts.
What health problems can dirty air ducts cause?
As you’d imagine, the primary health issue that dirty air ducts cause is allergies. If ducts are dirty or air filters have been in place longer than they should be, the percentage of contaminated air that enters into your living space will vastly increase. Again, this can cause bad allergies and even asthma attacks.
If I have my air ducts cleaned, will it solve my air quality problems?
It won’t rid of them entirely; however, it will certainly help. Clean ducts mean cleaner air…it’s that simple. Air produced by the AC unit will not surpass mold, dust, mildew or pollen. Rather, it will have a clear, uninterrupted bath to your home.
