When was the last time you had your ducts cleaned? According to the National Air Duct Cleaning Association (NADCA), if your air duct appears to be unclean, they most likely are and need efficient cleaning for safety reasons regarding your health. Here at Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we provide different duct services such as duct cleaning, duct sealing, coil cleaning, and even performance testing to make sure your home is a safe and healthy place for you and your family.
WHY DUCT CLEANING?
Your home’s air ducts should be cleaned every 2 years. Air ducts are among the most prominent parts for air filtration, heating, and cooling systems in your residence, which is very important to the health of your lungs! Pollutants exist in our homes for a number of reasons, whether it’s from around the house or tracked in by your pets and clothing. These contaminants re-circulate approximately 5 to 7 times each day! Not only will making sure your air ducts are clean help to ensure that your heating and cooling system functions properly, but it will help keep your air free of pollutants.
SHOULD YOU CONSIDER DUCT SEALING?
It is important to investigate for any holes or cracks in the ducts of your heating and cooling system. Air that is constantly leaking from open spaces in your ducts can cause a surge in energy consumption, leading to higher energy bills. Also, outdoor pollution and gasses can seep through open duct systems, which can worsen asthma, allergies, chronic illnesses, and more for residents. Sealing the ducts in your home could lead to a reduction in your bills and higher air quality in your home.
DO YOU HAVE AN OUTDOOR A/C UNIT?
Condenser coils on outdoor A/C units should also be inspected on a regular basis. As dirt and pollutants pile up, the airflow can be disrupted and this causes the unit to get hotter, which could damage the unit. Here at Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning, our coil cleaning service will help eliminate the debris and pollutants on air conditioning and heating coils.
It is recommended that a coil cleaning should be performed at least every two years depending on how often the air conditioner is used in the summer. Air conditioners that are used May through September may need to have annual coil cleaning.
WHAT DO YOU NEED?
At Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we provide performance testing to help identify any signs to see if your ducts are potentially leaking air. The first step is to schedule a Performance Test for your home to check up on your duct, duct seals, and blower door tests that will follow new building code standards.
