As homeowners, we often forget how important it is to clean our air ducts. As time passes, air ducts begin to collect unclean and unhealthy pollutants, like dust, pollen, pet hair, mold, fungus, mouse droppings, and more. Breathing in these substances can have a negative impact on your living environment and potentially lead to health issues.

That is why it is important to have HVAC experts conduct regular air duct cleanings. At Home Comfort Experts, we provide Northern Indiana and Southwestern Michigan home and business owners with comprehensive air duct cleaning services. To see how we can help you, contact us today.

The Importance of Duct Cleaning

When pollutants begin to build up in your air ducts, the air being pushed into your home can become dangerous to breathe. Additionally, if there are major blockages, your HVAC system will work harder, increasing your energy costs.

By cleaning your air ducts, you can maintain good air quality in your home, as well as reduce energy costs and prevent potential health hazards.

Warning Signs Your Air Ducts Need Cleaning

Regular air duct cleaning is important for maintaining a healthy and efficient HVAC system in your home. Here are a few signs to look for when determining if your air ducts need cleaning or not:

  • The Outside Condenser or the Indoor Coil is Iced Over
  • Musty Smell
  • Clogged Ducts, Vents, and Air Filters
  • Weak Airflow

There is a lot more than meets the eye when it comes to cleaning your air ducts. For affordable air duct cleaning, contact our team at Home Comfort Experts in Indiana or Michigan.

6 Reasons to Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned

While cleaning your floors and shelves may be easy, air ducts are a bit trickier. However, when cleaned, you will notice a big difference in the quality of your heating and cooling systems. Here are the top reasons why you should consider scheduling a duct cleaning:

  1. Newly Constructed Building: If your house or office was recently renovated, there is a chance that dirt, sawdust, or moisture is caught in your air ducts.
  2. Asthma or Allergies: Mold, pollen, and pet dander can trigger allergy symptoms, making air duct cleaning essential for relief.
  3. Your Ducts Haven’t Been Cleaned in Years: Your air ducts should be cleaned roughly every three to five years. If it has been a while, call our experts.
  4. Replacing HVAC Equipment: When upgrading your furnace or air conditioner, it’s the ideal time to clean the ducts to prevent contaminating new equipment.
  5. Pets in the Home: Pet hair and dander can accumulate in air ducts, causing poor air quality.
  6. Energy Savings: Cleaning ducts and coils can improve heating and cooling efficiency by up to 25 percent and lower energy bills.

Our Air Duct Cleaning Process

When deciding to clean your air ducts, go with a tried and tested method. Our team at Home Comfort Experts has a seven-step system we follow when conducting air duct cleanings in Indiana and Michigan. During each air duct cleaning, we:

  1. Inspect the air ducts for dirt, debris, cracks, and leaks.
  2. Cover filters and vents to prevent dust and debris from spreading.
  3. Gain access to the vacuum hose by using existing openings or drilling a small hole.
  4. Insert compressed air nozzles, brushes, and whips into the supply and return vents to agitate and remove stubborn dust and debris.
  5. Use specialized UV equipment to kill bacteria, germs, mold, viruses, odors, and toxic gases.
  6. Clean all parts of the ductwork, including the indoor cooling system, furnace, filter area, and blower compartment.
  7. Seal all openings using inspection panels attached to the ductwork with screws to ensure minimal to no air leakage.
