Windsor Air Duct Cleaning
Do you suffer from allergies? What about having to constantly dust your home? Our Windsor air duct cleaning service takes care of both and more. Over time, dust and debris settles within your duct work and begins to collect within your duct work. As more dust collects this allows for it to be blown into the air lessening your indoor air quality.
Restoring Efficiency With Air Duct Cleaning
Dust and debris in your HVAC system can not only increase your allergy suffering and lessen your indoor air quality. It can also decrease your HVAC system’s efficiency by not allowing the maximium amount of air flow. This can lead to higher heating and cooling bills along with causing strain and increased wear and tear on moving parts inside the HVAC system.
How Our Air Duct Cleaning Process Works
First we identify which vents are return vents and which ones are supply vent. We close off the vents and bring in our power negative air machine(or really large vacuum) and attach it to either the supply or return side close to your HVAC system. Our negative air system has a 3 stage filtering system to completely filter all dust and debris that we remove from your air duct system, and release nothing by clean air back out.
We turn it on and put the HVAC system under vacuum and then bring in our air washing equipment. We start with one side of the system(return or supply) and go to each vent opening and air wash it with compressed air down to your trunk lines. Your trunk lines are the main air duct lines that your air vents branch off from. Once we air wash all of the vents to the trunk lines, we air wash the trunk lines pushing the dust and debris into our negative air system. We repeat this process with the opposite side of the HVAC system until the entire system is cleaned.
Tips For Clean Air Ducts
- Have your air ducts cleaned once every 2-3 years. For those with pets and/or allergy sufferers, having your air ducts cleaned every 1-2 years can greatly help with that.
- Vacuum your carpet often. We not only talk about vacuuming your carpet with our carpet cleaning service, but we highly recommend it to limit the amount of dust in the air. Your carpet is a filter and dust and allergens settle in the carpet. When you walk on the carpet you’re kicking all of that up into the air you breath. Of course we also recommend annual carpet cleaning to clean and rinse the carpet of those things as well.
- Change your HVAC filters often. Many people forget to do this and it can greatly decrease your HVAC system’s efficiency. For allergy sufferers, changing your filters every 1-2 months can help greatly, otherwise changing them every 3 months is sufficient. A good rule of thumb is when the seasons change, change your furnace filters as well.
Preventing Fires With Dryer Vent Cleaning in Windsor
Many people are not aware that you can have your dryer vent cleaned. There are two main benefits to having your dryer vents cleaned. 1) A clogged dryer vent blocks air flow which means the humid air isn’t removed from the drying chamber and clothes take longer to dry. This can cause you to have to run your dryer longer than what is truly needed. This added run time can increase your utility bills significantly over the course of a year. 2) Dryer lint is extremely flammable and is in the top 3 causes for house fires. Having your dryer vents cleaned can significantly reduce the chances of a dryer fire happening.
