How to Tackle Your Indoor Dust Storm

ductwork-being-cleanedDo you remember watching Saturday morning cartoons and seeing a character plop onto an old chair and having a dust cloud emerge from said chair? Have you noticed the same thing happening when you sit down on your own furniture? If you are noticing a small dust storm brewing in your home, it may not be due to a lack of cleaning. The presence of excessive dust can actually indicate that you are having a problem with build up in your ductwork system.

When you believe that you may need help with duct cleaning in Sugar Land, TX, you should make sure that you reach out to the professionals at Fresh Air, L.P. to ensure your duct system gets the best care possible. But first, lets figure out what exactly duct cleaning is and how it can help you.

Did you know that you need to have your ductwork checked and cleaned every now and again? If you didn’t before, we are happy to be the ones to let you know. Cleaning your ducts is actually pretty important not only for the sake of your indoor air quality but also for the sake of the efficient operation of your HVAC unit.

What is Duct Cleaning?

Duct cleaning is the process of having a trained service technician come by and use tools such as brushes or a special vacuum to clear dust and debris from your ductwork. This may sound like something anyone can do but it is actually very important that this be done by a professional as someone who is untrained runs the risk of damaging their ductwork.

What Role it Plays in HVAC System Care

So you may be wondering, “Why should I bother with duct cleaning? I can just dust a bit more often and the issue gets resolved right?”

Actually no. When there is a build-up of dust on your furniture and surfaces around your home, this is actually a sign that duct cleaning most definitely needs to be done because even your filters have become overloaded. What’s more, ductwork that is clogged with dust and debris can impact the efficiency of your HVAC system’s operation.

Your ductwork is the delivery system for the air that is heated and blown into your home. While there are filters that help to capture a large amount of the debris from the air being heated, they won’t catch everything. The dust and contaminants that are able to get through settle throughout your ductwork and eventually build-up in your ducts. When this build-up becomes bad enough, it can affect the airflow throughout your house, forcing your HVAC system to work harder and increasing the level of wear and tear it goes through. Ultimately this can lead to increased repairs and even an early replacement.

In short, dirty ducts cost you a lot more cash.

Duct cleaning helps by getting all of the build-up out of your ducts and leaving those pathways free and clear for air to flow through.

If you are interested in getting duct cleaning scheduled for your home and tackling the dust storm that kicks up when you turn on your heat, make sure you reach out to the NATE certified technicians at Fresh Air, L.P.
