While the HVAC system is used everyday for transporting heat and cool air, not much thought is given to the condition of the system or the air ducts. However, they often become blocked from a number of debris, including dust, pollen, and even leaves when bringing in outside air to be treated and distributed throughout the property. Lint can also be trapped within the ductwork from the clothes dryer.
But RestorationMaster is available in the Longview, WA area to provide professional air duct cleaning services for residential and commercial properties. Each of our technicians is licensed and experienced to fully clean all components of the HVAC system, from drips pans to grilles and diffusers.
Problems with Dirty Ducts
In addition to clogged air ducts, there are a number of problems associated with a dirty HVAC system. Dirt and debris will often travel throughout the ducts and be pushed into breathing air, triggering a number of allergies and breathing problems. In addition, the clothes dryer will need to work harder in order to provide heated air to the clothes, increasing the electricity bill. This is not to mention the risk of a fire hazard from the dryer overheating.
RestorationMaster recommends a professional air duct cleaning every 3 – 5 years, depending on the living situation, type and size of air ducts, and outside weather conditions. For example, families living with pets will need more frequent cleanings due to the spread of hair and dander. But during the cleaning appointment, our technicians cover all parts of the system, followed by a final inspection to ensure that air is able to flow freely throughout the ducts.
All of the following parts of the HVAC are cleaned within our services:
- Air vents and registers
- Fan motor and housing
- Drip pans
- Cooling and heating coils
- Grilles and diffusers
- Air ducts
- Air handling unit housing
- Heat exchangers
When finding dirt air ducts, you may notice it by experiencing more allergies than usual, higher electricity bills, or the dryer is not fully drying the clothes after one normal-sized load. While it can also be caused by other factors, be sure to check the condition of the system on a frequent basis in order to protect your health and safety and mechanical problems in the future.
