Common Problems with Ducts

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

Your central air conditioner relies upon a series of ducts to do its job.

The Benefits of Professional Duct Cleaning

Monday, November 18th, 2013

Cleaning your ductwork sounds like an enormous amount of work. And it is, we won’t lie to you about that. However, you need to have it done for a number of important reasons, which we’ll outline here for you. But you don’t need to do the hard work; in fact, it’s better if you don’t. Leave the job of duct cleaning in Hammond, LA to experts. A–Professional Heating and Air Conditioning offers comprehensive duct cleaning in Hammond, LA, in addition to other services that will improve your indoor air quality and your HVAC system’s performance.

Here are the major benefits of professional duct cleaning:

Improved air quality

Because Americans on average spend 85% of their time indoors, the quality of the air inside homes and buildings is especially important. The U.S. Department of Health has determined that poor indoor air quality is one of the major health threats in the country.

One way that you can improve the quality of the air you breathe in your home is with annual duct cleaning. Because your ducts are sealed along their length, there isn’t anywhere for the dust inside them to escape once it starts building up. A faulty or clogged air filter will also cause more dust contamination—and eventually this will blow out through your vents. A thorough cleaning will cleanse these pollutants and improve the air you breathe daily.

Better energy efficiency

Ducts covered with dust will increase resistance to the air moving through them. This will force your air conditioner and heater to labor harder. The more stress placed on your HVAC system, the faster it will wear down and require repairs, or even a full replacement.

A cleaner house

The dust blown from dirty ducts through vents does more than contaminate the air you and your family breathe. It also spreads over carpets, furniture, and household surfaces. You’ll struggle keeping your house looking clean and pleasant if clogged ducts continue to waft dust everywhere.

Duct cleaning involves more than using a whisk broom to sweep out the visible surfaces. Professionals need to access the difficult to reach sections of your ductwork and apply tools such as power vacuums, chemical sanitizers, and rotary brushes to give you the best cleaning. If you should have a microbacterial infection, duct cleaning specialists have UV germicidal lights that can eliminate the problem.
