Air Duct Cleaning
Central air conditioners have two separate components: the condenser and the evaporator. The condenser unit is usually located outside the house on a concrete slab. The evaporator coil is mounted in the plenum or main duct junction above the furnace.
Both the evaporator and the condenser are sealed. Therefore, a professional service person should be called for almost any maintenance other than routine cleaning. Central air conditioners should be professionally inspected and adjusted before the beginning of every cooling season. However, don’t let your maintenance end with this annual checkup. While there aren’t many repairs you can make yourself, there are specific maintenance procedures you can follow to keep your system operating at peak efficiency
Dirty air ducts can be a scary sight. Over time, dust, hair, mildew, and soot collects on air duct surfaces and falls into the crevices of your once-clean air duct system. The truth is that the same factors that help to make today’s homes more energy efficient also result in the air inside becoming dirtier. And no amount of good housekeeping can reach into the dirtiest part of many homes: the duct work carrying heated and cooled air throughout the house.
Some of these reasons include:
- To restore the home after fire or water damage
- To reduce the possibility of a home fire
- To lower energy costs
- To eliminate allergy-causing agents
- To breathe cleaner, healthier air
- To eliminate musty odors
- To eliminate the amount of dust in the home
