When Do Air Ducts Need Cleaning?
A surprising amount of dirt and dust builds up in the ducts of your heater or air conditioner over time. Our technicians often find dead birds and rats that have found their way in and couldn’t find their way out. So if you don’t clean your ducts, you are probably breathing in air that is not as clean as you might imagine. If you are sensitive to allergens, this can be a problem. In addition to this, when your ducts become clogged with dust and debris, the fans have to work harder to move air through them. It affects the efficiency of the unit, which has a couple of consequences. The unit doesn’t work at its best and it is more expensive to run.
At Mr Emergency, we believe that regular air duct cleaning is a vital part of servicing your ducted heater or cooler. Keeping your system running optimally by cleaning the ducts regularly is a good way to head off potential.
- The air filter hasn’t been changed or cleaned for an extended period
- The registers or vent covers are covered with dust
- There is mould in the system
- The airflow is weaker in some rooms and stronger in others
- Noise is coming from the ductwork
When Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?
The beginning or the finish of the heating or cooling season is an ideal time to clean out your HVAC ducts. When you are retiring your evaporative air conditioner for the winter, it is not only a good time to clean the unit on the roof, but to also clean the air ducts. The autumn is also the perfect time to get your reverse cycle ducted heating and cooling ready for the new season.
A reverse cycle system has been working hard cooling your home during summer could do with a spruce up for the change to heating in the coming winter. Autumn is also the best time to clean the air ducts of your gas ducted heater. The gas heater has probably been sitting idle for a number of months after working hard through the previous winter.
Cleaning up the ducts just before the cold weather sets in will give you cleaner air from a more efficient system right when you need it. You really don’t want to start it up on the first cold and rainy night and have a stale musty odour throughout the house.
How Often Should I Clean The Air Ducts?
It depends how much dust and pet hair is drawn into the system. Generally, you clean your air ducts every 2 to 5 years, but it makes sense to make it part of the maintenance schedule for your heater or cooler on an annual basis. That way it’s easy to remember.
Keep in mind that it is the respiratory system of your home and that you don’t want poor indoor air quality. It’s often necessary to clean air ducts after renovating. If you have been creating a whole lot of dust, the ducts will suck in a lot of that material. Having pets who shed a lot of hair also shortens the time between air duct cleans.
