Keep your HVAC system’s air ducts clean

As we move into the heating season, now’s as good a time as any to ensure your heating and air conditioning system’s air ducts are clean. Mold, dust, hair and bacteria can all build up in your home’s ductwork, leading to an unhealthy environment and reduced heating/cooling efficiency.

First things first: hire a professional. They have the tools, know-how, and expertise to understand just what your system needs. Make sure you find someone with proven experience, though. Certified RESNET EnergySmart Contractors  are a good place to start.

 

The professional will examine and test your home’s ductwork to determine just what level of cleaning is needed. Then they’ll use a HEPA vacuum equipped with special wands and brushes to scrub the ducts, furnace, air conditioning and blower units clean. All the wall and floor registers will be removed, cleaned and disinfected as well.

 

Finally, the technician will use a fan to blow a specialized treatment through the entire system to kill any mold and bacteria.

 

The result will be better smelling, cleaner air, and a more efficient system. If you haven’t had your home’s ducts cleaned recently, don’t wait. You’re risking the health of everyone in your home, and the longevity of your HVAC system. To find out more about duct cleaning, read this article from the EPA.
