Most consumers are unaware of the important role ductwork plays in your air conditioning system. For starters, its primary function is to deliver cool air seamlessly throughout your entire indoor atmospheres. Since your A/C ductwork is out of view and installed behind the walls in your home, in the attic or even in the crawlspace, it is quite easy for homeowners to entirely forget about it and even neglect it altogether.
Maintenance of your A/C ductwork is important to the overall performance of your air conditioning system and surely the expert technicians at South Nashville Heating and Cooling are equipped to perform your ductwork cleaning and take care of all your HVAC needs as well.
There are a variety of reasons why proper maintenance and cleaning of your ductwork is so important for both your air conditioner and your family. For starters, indoor air quality comes in at the top of the list. Even though your air conditioner is equipped with a filter to minimize dust and dirt that enters into your system, these filters simply cannot get it all, especially dirt and dust that has built up inside your vents that can ultimately pollute the air that is delivered into your living spaces.
Further, cleaning your ductwork results in better energy efficiency. Dust and dirt that builds up in your air conditioning vents cause operational problems to your AC system and when these problems occur your air conditioner has to work harder and longer to accomplish its tasks and thereby uses more energy.
Finally, maintaining and cleaning your A/C ductwork helps to remove contaminants such as mold, fungus and mildew spores that can accumulate in your ventilation over time. We all know how harmful mold and mildew spores can be not only to the atmosphere, but to our health which is reason in and of itself to routinely clean and maintain the ductwork on your A/C system.
Determining how often you should clean your air conditioning ductwork is dependent upon a few factors including:
- Smokers in the house
- Pets that tend to shed an awful lot of dander and fur/hair
- Family members that suffer from asthma, allergies or other medical conditions
- Recent renovations or remodeling projects performed in your home
- Prior water damage to your HVAC system or your home.
Regular industry standards recommend cleaning the ductwork every 3 to 5 years, but any of the above factors can greatly shorten that length of time.
