The air ducts in a central air conditioning system are perhaps one of the most important parts of the system because they are responsible for supplying heated or cooled air to different parts of the building as well as carrying air from different rooms in the house to the HVAC system to be heated/cooled and filtered. Over time, these systems usually get dirty as a result of accumulation of dust and other types of debris inside the air ducts. This can lower the efficiency and performance of the HVAC system in a number of ways. First, the dirty air ducts will contaminate filtered air, which will lead to a low indoor air quality in the building. As a result, the occupants of the building may develop allergies or asthma attacks. Sinusitis cases may also be exacerbated. This will make the indoor environment unsafe and extremely uncomfortable, even if temperatures are right.
Duct Cleaning Service from J.J. Air
The best way to deal with a dirty air duct system is to hire an experienced HVAC company, such as J & J Air Conditioning Inc. to offer a duct cleaning service. The company has NATE certified technicians and high-tech equipment that can be used to properly clean air ducts without causing any damage to the ductwork or contaminating indoor air quality any further.
To prevent the air ducts from getting dirty in the future, you may want to have the entire ductwork sealed and the air filtration system in your HVAC system looked at. In some cases, the spaces around the air filters can be blamed for the dirty air ducts since they can allow unfiltered air to bypass the filtration system. Air filters should also be replaced or cleaned on a regular basis to ensure the unit traps all airborne particles, thereby preventing them from getting into the air supply ducts.
