It is sometimes easy to forget about the important role that the behind the scenes components of our heating and air conditioning systems play. When there is a problem that impedes the operation of your home comfort system, though, it becomes much more difficult to ignore these components. If your air conditioning and heating system relies on a forced air distribution system to cycle air throughout your home, the condition of your air ducts is extremely important. Dirty ductwork can lead to a number of problems. Here are some tips from the Bryson City duct cleaning professionals at Premier Indoor Comfort Systems.
While not every home that uses air ducts will require professional duct cleaning service regularly, it is always a good idea to have them inspected during routine maintenance service. You can wipe clean your duct registers and even vacuum out the exposed area a bit. However, only a qualified, professional duct cleaning technician has the specialized tools and years of experience necessary to ensure a thorough cleaning of your air ducts.
A number of factors will affect your duct cleaning needs. Everything from the presence of pets in your home to the general cleanliness of your house will help determine whether or not you need to schedule professional duct cleaning. If poor indoor air quality is a persistent problem in your home, duct cleaning can help clear the air.
Dirty air ducts can even reduce the effectiveness and efficiency with which your heating and air conditioning system operates. While it is not likely your air ducts will become so clogged that they block off airflow, they can suffer from increased airflow resistance and can clog up air filters. This puts excess strain on your home comfort system, which can cause it to work inefficiently and even damage the system. Plus, the dirt and debris can make its way into your HVAC equipment, causing further operational problems.
If you notice a general decline in the performance of your air conditioning system, you may need to schedule professional duct cleaning. Do not let dirty air ducts have a negative impact on your indoor air quality and comfort. Contact the Bryson City duct cleaning pros on our team today for more information.
