Your air handler and ductwork, just like everything in your home, over time, gets dirty and needs to be cleaned. Even with a high efficiency filter, eventually your air duct cleaning will need to be done. The process of air duct cleaning greatly varies from company to company. Some air conditioning companies only clean the ductwork and grilles, others only clean the return side of the ductwork system. According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, all internal components of the air handler (liner, evaporator coil, drain pan, blower assembly), supply ducts, return duct, branch lines and all grilles should be hygienically cleaned by a certified contractor when an air duct cleaning is performed.
A dirty air handler and ductwork can result in poor indoor air quality, debris coming from your supply vents, a dusty environment, high utility bills, and a decrease in the life of your equipment. In certain cases microbial or “mold” contamination within the air handler and ductwork has been linked to respiratory difficulties and skin rashes. An air duct cleaning could greatly help prevent these things.
Along with many other benefits, air duct cleaning under NADCA guidelines can reduce equipment power consumption, dust and allegories in the home, and increase the life of the equipment. Call us today at 904-356-3963 to schedule your FREE inspection to see if you need an air duct cleaning.
