Air Duct Cleaning in Calgary
Duct cleaning has become popular in recent years, with commercial cleaning services popping up everywhere. True professionals, like Just In Time Furnace Inc., use specialized blowers, vacuums, and brushes to clean out the supply, intake, and return ducts throughout your home including the air handler, registers, grilles, fans, motors, housings, and coils of the HVAC system. There is evidence that dirty heating and cooling coils, motors, and air handling units can make your HVAC unit less efficient.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use. When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.
Duct cleaning is recommended on a needs basis with some indications being:
Renovation: Ducts should be sealed off during home renovations– especially if there was asbestos abatement, lead paint removal, or significant dust – if not, and often just in case, dangerous dust and debris may become lodged inside the ductwork that needs to be cleaned.
Contaminants: Evidence of animal infestation or nesting in your ducts, visible mold growth inside the ductwork, noticeable debris like pet hair, or if odors or other contaminants are being released into the room through the ducts after the registers have been cleaned and vacuumed - then the ducts may need to be cleaned.
Illness: If someone in your family is suffering from an unexplained allergy-related illness, and you’ve taken every other possible step to decontaminate your home, you may want to consider having your ducts cleaned to see if the HVAC system was the culprit for your own peace of mind.
