Your duct system is a vital component of your overall HVAC system. Every day, the system moves huge quantities of air between the air handler and the rooms of your home. However, if the ductwork is not clean, it becomes less efficient at moving all the air needed. This is a major issue for homeowners as it poses a health threat and causes a decrease in the efficiency of their HVAC systems.
The Importance of Duct Cleaning in South Florida
Your air conditioning system ductwork already loses some effeciency between air handler and vents. This natural air loss is factored into the efficiency ratings of your air conditioner to overcome through proper design and installation of the duct system minimizes the loss of efficiency.
However, the problem is made worse by ductwork that has a layer of grime and debris inside. This grime, consisting of dust, dander, pollen and other airborne contaminants is a natural part of forced air comfort control but it only takes an eighth of an inch to reduce air flow enough to cost you money. In addition, those contaminants can circulate in the air and present a health risk regardless of how how well your air filtration operates. For all these reasons, we highly recommend regular duct cleaning in Sunrise, Kendall, Coral Gables, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Hollywood, and all other South Florida areas.
Duct Inspection and Maintenance
Beyond basic duct cleaning which should be performed every year or two, there are other maintenance tasks you should consider having performed. We recommend you have your system tested and sealed, especially if it is more than 10 years old. We also recommend you have your dryer vents cleaned and that you check your ducts on a regular basis for possible issues that might lead to air loss. This processis conducted by a trained technician that has the tools to inspect your system. Our trained AC professionals are able to test and determine the level of cleaning, repair, retrofit, or replacement your duct system requires
