Routine AC maintenance can be the difference between a long-lasting air conditioning unit and one that requires constant AC repair. Among the many maintenance items is air duct cleaning. This quick and easy chore has many benefits for your air conditioning unit as well as your health and your bottom line. In this article brought to you by Rooter Hero Plumbing, we will go over some of these advantages as well as some signs that it is time to clean your air ducts. If you prefer to leave AC maintenance to qualified technicians, then call Rooter Hero to speak with a friendly representative and schedule an appointment. We are also prepared to arrange an emergency dispatch.
Why Clean the Air Ducts?
Air ducts are the conduits, or passages, used to deliver and remove air to and from the building. However, air is not the only thing you might find in the air ducts. All kinds of nasty things, such as dust, pet hair, and dirt, can accumulate in the ducts and vents over time.
Cleaning the air ducts and removing these things will improve your building’s air quality and result in a cleaner home. Getting rid of the dust and filth in the air ducts means less cleaning for you, but a dirty, dusty, and fur-filled air duct can also create health issues. This is especially important if you have guests or household members who have allergies or breathing problems.
Cleaning the air ducts is also good for your wallet and bottom line. The cost of hiring a technician to handle your AC maintenance is a drop in the bucket when you consider the costs of neglecting your air conditioning unit. Dirty ducts allow less airflow to reach the vents, meaning the system must work harder to achieve the same goal of cooling the building. Clean air ducts mean less energy costs.
Staying on top of maintenance is also good for the unit’s service life. Dirty vent systems can significantly reduce the life expectancy of your air conditioner as ducts corrode more quickly. If you want to avoid costly repairs or a premature replacement, then schedule your routine AC maintenance today.
Air ducts do not have to be cleaned as frequently as filters need to be changed. While we recommend that property owners change their air filters once every few months, an air duct cleaning once every two to three years should be satisfactory. Obviously, situations vary. It can be that the air ducts need cleaning urgently. So, how do you know it’s time to sweep those ducts? Consider these signs:
