The ductwork in your home circulates thousands of cubic feet of air throughout your home each day. It’s inevitable that some dust particles or allergens get caught in the airflow— especially if your HVAC filters haven’t been regularly changed. Other sources of contaminants in your ductwork could be caused by gaps and cracks in the ductwork that can suck in dust and allergens. What it really comes down to is that properly connected and clean ductwork is one step to ensure your home’s indoor air quality is healthy.
Are My Ducts Working Right?
Our customer service representatives receive a fair amount of calls from homeowners asking about having their home’s ductwork cleaned. Some of the symptoms we hear about include:
Increased dust or dirt in the house
Increased allergies or other respiratory problems that disappear when not at home
Concern about outside pollutants or smoke getting into heating and cooling systems
Start with a Ductwork Inspection
While it’s perfectly reasonable to want to have clean ductwork and a healthy home, we may not be solving your air quality problems by cleaning the ductwork. That’s why the REE Mechanical technician will begin with an inspection of your ductwork and associated heating and cooling systems. In this inspection, he or she will check:
Furnace or AC unit filters
Poor ductwork design or connections
Inspect for damaged or poorly sealed ductwork
Get to the Root of the Problem
Often we find that the symptoms our customers experience are not the result of ductwork in need of cleaning, but of HVAC systems with dirty filters, disconnected ducts in attic spaces that are sucking in dusty air or poorly maintained systems.
While we have the tools and the experience to perform duct cleaning, it’s much more essential to diagnose the root of the problem and improve your home’s indoor air quality. If family members have allergies or respiratory problems, it may make sense to install an air purification system to improve your home’s indoor air quality.
