A homeowner’s list of monthly “to-dos” should include changing the air filter in the furnace. It’s good practice to remove dust and debris from your air, and most furnace manufacturers suggest monthly or even semimonthly cleanings if you have pets or allergy sensitive people in the home. There’s another component to keeping your furnace and your family healthy: professional air duct cleaning.
There are a variety of reasons that having professional air duct cleaning is important for your Lexington, Cozad, or Gothenburg, NE, home.
How often should you have your air ducts cleaned? Generally home maintenance guides suggest every 3-4 years. However, homeowners who have pets that are prone to shedding, family members with asthma or allergies, or residents who have recently had home remodeling or home improvement done should consider biannually. To reduce the frequency of professional duct cleaning, keep a schedule with frequent vacuuming and yearly professional carpet cleaning to reduce dust, dirt, pollen, and allergens in the air.
The amount of time it takes to clean your ducts will vary on the complexity of your duct system as well as the makeup of your HVAC unit. There’s no need to try and “prepare” your home. Our friendly technicians will walk you through all components of the cleaning and give you an estimate on how long you can expect it to take, but a general rule of thumb is 3-5 hours. We use the latest technology and methods of removing the dirt and debris in both your ducts and HVAC system, which allows your system to operate at greater efficiency. You’ll notice a reduction in surface dust and of odors in your home after the cleaning!
