Professional Vent Cleaners in Hoffman Estates
As homeowners, we spend a lot of time thinking about the maintenance of our air conditioners but sometimes we forget that the mechanical equipment is only part of the system. Your air conditioner has a system of (usually) flexible hoses that carry the air throughout your house. However, these passageways, or air ducts, are hidden in the attic or under floors or behind walls, we never really know if they’re working the way they’re supposed to. Calling Ducts R US is the first step in finding out if air flow through the vents is being impeded by dirt or debris. Even so, you still may be thinking, why is it so important to have your air ducts inspected and cleaned?
1. To improve indoor air quality – We spend so much time inside our houses, breathing in recirculated air, that it is important to keep allergen, mold and contaminant levels low. Regular inspections of your system are essential if you have furry pets, a smoker in the house, or you live in an area with a lot of outdoor, airborne allergens.
2. To improve air circulation – In older homes, dust can build up in our ductwork over time. Aging ducts can tear, allowing everything from rodents to old insulation to enter the vents. In new construction, drywall dust or sawdust can settle in the air ducts. Ducts R US will remove anything keeping your air conditioner or heater from circulating as much air as possible
3. To save you money – Keeping your ducts free of dust and debris means you are keeping your system running at peak efficiency. Anything that is blocking air flow through the ductwork causes your unit to work harder, which means your electric bills go up. A clean system means the HVAC doesn’t have to work as hard.
4. To uncover system performance problems – Many times homeowners who experience problems or fluctuations in the proper functioning of their A/C call in a specialist because they assume that airflow through the ducts is the issue. Though this is the problem much of the time, the rest of the time the problem is elsewhere in the cooling/heating system. An experienced technician can spot problems that have nothing to do with dirty air ducts.
Over 40 pounds of dust, bug parts and pet dander is generated in the average home annually. Calling Ducts R US is can keep those pollutants from recirculating in your home.
