HVAC & Air Duct Cleaning

Your home's air quality and energy efficiency rely on a well-maintained HVAC system. If you want your AC and heat to flow efficiently, you must ensure the way is clear, unblocked, and clean. This is why HVAC and duct cleaning are essential to home maintenance.

Over time, dust builds up inside your air system and must be removed. This build-up could have your unit working harder than it previously had, leading to higher electricity bills, lower efficiency, and, at worst, the need to replace your entire system sooner than anticipated. Fortunately, air duct cleaning is something that a skilled HVAC team can take care of quickly.

Is Air Conditioning Duct Cleaning necessary if I Change my filters Frequently?

While regularly changing air filters is essential for maintaining good indoor air quality, it does not eliminate the need for air conditioning duct cleaning. Dust isn't the only contaminant that can accumulate within the ductwork. Over the years, we've seen not only dust but also mold and, at times, animal droppings in vents.

That build-up can cause issues not just with your home's central unit but anyone living there can also suffer negative health effects.

According to the EPA, indoor air quality is one of the highest environmental risks to public health. Professional cleaning thoroughly removes these accumulated pollutants, producing cleaner and healthier air.

How Often Should Air Conditioning Duct Cleaning be Done?

The frequency of air conditioning duct cleaning depends on various factors, such as the HVAC system's location, usage, and condition. In general, it is recommended to have the ducts professionally cleaned every 3-5 years.

Common Signs Your Vents Need Cleaning

If you're wondering if your air ducts require professional cleaning, there are some easy ways to tell.

If you've noticed dust building up around the register covers around your home more than average or find yourself replacing filters more frequently, it might be time to call in the experts.

Some severe signs could include things like unpleasant odors.

Persistent unpleasant odors emanating from your vents could be a sign of accumulated dirt and possibly mold or even dead animals within the ductwork.

Another potentially severe sign is if your family has regular respiratory problems or off-season allergies from trapped contaminants circulating in the home, lowering indoor air quality.

How do Air Ducts Get Cleaned?

We use the Roto Brush Brush Beast system at Bill Kutz Heating and Air Conditioning to rid your air ducts of any pollutants.

Our technicians start by taking a video of your ducts and showing you the results.

Afterward, we'll remove all the register covers (air vent covers) around your home.

A combination hose and rotating head brush are then inserted into the ducts. This will clean and vacuum any debris previously spotted, removing any potential harm to you or your household.

As a final measure, the cleaned ducts are treated with an antimicrobial mist, helping to ensure no microbes are left behind. This mist also leaves a pleasant smell, so your home won't smell like a disinfectant.
