Fast & Thorough Duct Cleaning in San Diego
When is the last time you had your ductwork cleaned? If it’s been more than 10 years, you’re due for a thorough duct cleaning. There are plenty of good reasons, starting with your indoor air quality.
If there is dust in your ductwork, every time the blower motor kicks on and sends a blast of air through your ducts it dislodges that dust and sends it directly into your living spaces through the ducts. Is there dust in your ductwork? Here’s a quick way to check. Grab a trusty flashlight and turn off the lights in your living room or bedroom. Now have someone else turn the blower motor on (flip the switch on the thermostat to “on”). If there is dust in your ducts you’ll immediately see a puff of particles forced out of your vent.
What’s In My Ducts?
That dust is probably made up of dust mite feces, human and pet dander and a variety of common household chemicals. Basically, all the things that make you cough and sneeze. If your system turns on 5 times a day, you’re getting blasted with those allergens 5 times more than necessary. In addition to dry particles, mold and mildew can also cause problems in duct runs. If water has collected in a duct for any reason, it becomes a perfect habitat for mold and mildew. The dark, warm area will allow it to grow, then when it dries out, mold spores can be sent right into your living space. This can be a huge concern if you or a member of your family has asthma or other lung problems. A thorough duct cleaning will stop that immediately.
Duct Cleaning Saves You Cash
Duct cleaning will make your HVAC system more efficient. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that 25 to 40 percent of heating and cooling energy is wasted. Part of this problem comes from the build-up of contaminants on your blower motor and inside the duct runs. In addition, when we do a full duct cleaning we can identify potential leaks in your duct work. Sealing these leaks will significantly increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling units. Instead of conditioning the air between the walls and under the floorboards, you’ll be getting that air right into your living spaces.
See the Difference
Our duct cleaning service takes about 3 hours on average, starting with a visual inspection with a fiber optic snake. You’ll see exactly what your ducts look like before we start. Then, when we are finished, you’ll get another look. The difference will be clear to see and you’ll be able to relax knowing that your ductwork is as clean as the rest of your home.
