DUCT CLEANING – WHO NEEDS IT?
Because we do not see the inside of our AC/Heating duct system, we don’t often think of the contaminants that might be accumulating and spreading through the system for your family to breathe every day. Cleaning system components of your air duct system can make a substantial difference to the health and safety of your family. It takes a professional to clean your air duct system which includes cleaning: air supply and returns; air ducts and registers; grilles and diffusers; heat exchangers; heating and cooling coils; condensate drain pans (drip pans); fan motor and fan housing; and the air handling unit housing. Duct cleaning is something you might consider having done every 2-3 years, depending on the amount of contaminants that flow through your space.
Here are a few telling signs that your ducts need cleaning:
- When family members are suffering from allergies, asthma or unexplained symptoms or illnesses
- When you have had major renovation work or construction in the home. Heavy debris can be deposited inside the ductwork
- When the outsides of your registers and ducts show above normal deposits of dust or bacteria
At Sunrise Mechanical, we found out for ourselves how valuable duct cleaning is for our family.
