Duct Cleaning in Tucson, AZ
What Does a Duct Cleaning Service Involve?
Duct cleaning is a vital part of maintaining your HVAC system. When you call Brenovations HVAC for an air duct cleaning, our technicians will inspect and clean your home’s duct system. Before we start the cleaning process, we will provide a thorough inspection of your ductwork. The inspection is an important part of the service. If your ducts have holes or gaps in them, the cool or warm air will escape before it reaches your home. We will also ensure that your ducts are in good condition. Not only do we inspect your ducts, but we also inspect your vents, dryer ducts, and air registers.
Over time, your ducts may fill up with mold, dust, debris, animal droppings, pests, mildew, stains, pet dander, and other forms of dirt. By the time we are done, your ducts will be as good as new, and you will notice it the very next time you use your HVAC system.
5 Signs That You Need Duct Cleaning
Your ducts are well hidden. It may not always be easy to know when you need duct cleaning. Here are 5 signs that indicate your ducts are dirty.
1. Dirty Air Vents
If you open your vent covers and see dirt or debris, it is a clear sign that your ducts have the same things in them.
2. Dusty Return Air RegistersYour ducts definitely need professional cleaning if your return air registers have a fuzzy layer of dirt and dust on them.
3. Dirty Air Filter
When your air filter gets clogged with dust, it means your airflow is likely being choked off. This leads to more dust settling in your ductwork.
4. Dirty Inner Components
If you open your AC or furnace and see a build-up of dirt and gunk, it may mean that your ducts are filled with the same kind of dirt. It is worth it to have your HVAC technician check your ducts for this dirt.
5. AC or Furnace Blowing Dirt
Of course, if dust and dirt are blowing out of your HVAC unit, it’s not a good sign. Air comes from your ducts, so if dust is coming out of your vents, it could mean that your ducts need cleaning.
The Consequences of Dirty Ducts
When there is a build-up of dust and debris in your AC ducts, it restricts your airflow. This means that your HVAC system is not able to heat or cool the air adequately. This will increase your unit’s run time and eat more energy to do the same amount of work. If you want to keep your electricity and gas bills down, you should check your AC ducts for a build-up of dirt.
In addition to higher utility bills, a clogged HVAC system will undergo more wear and tear. As we mentioned, when the airflow is blocked, the run time is increased. The longer your HVAC unit works, the more worn out the components become. This will also decrease the lifespan of your unit. A duct cleaning costs much less than a new HVAC unit.
There are a whole bunch of different kinds of dirt and contaminants in your ducts. Not only dust and pet dander, but also some more unsettling things, like bacteria, fungi, and dead skin. This is dangerous for your health and well-being. Not only can this increase allergy symptoms, but also respiratory problems.
When your ducts are clogged, your home and furniture will get dirty and damaged. Not only will there be visible signs of dirt, but microorganisms will spread all over your home too.
How Often Should Ducts be Cleaned?
HVAC experts recommend having your ducts cleaned every 2 to 3 years to play it safe. However, if you have family members with health issues or allergies, or many pets, this should be done sooner. On the other hand, if you notice some of the signs we spoke about, you can call for an air duct cleaning service.
