Air Duct Cleaning
Your duct system is a vital component of your overall HVAC system. Every day it moves huge quantities of heated or cooled air between the air handler and each room of your home. However, if that ductwork gets dirty, it becomes less efficient at moving all that air. This is a major issue for homeowners that are seeing a decrease in energy efficiency for all of their HVAC systems.
If your home’s ductwork isn’t moving air as efficiently as it should or if allergen levels are high despite the filtration devices you have installed, call Sunny Service today for commercial and residential duct cleaning services.
The Importance of Duct Cleaning
Your ductwork already loses quite a bit of heating and cooling between air handler and vent. This natural air loss is factored into the efficiency ratings of your air conditioner and furnace and is hard to overcome, though insulation and proper duct sealing can certainly help.
However, the problem is only made worse by ductwork that has a layer of dirt and debris inside. This dirt, consisting of dust, dander, pollen and other airborne contaminants is a natural part of forced air comfort control but it only takes an eighth of an inch to slow air flow enough to cost you money.
In addition, those contaminants can circulate in the air and present a health risk regardless of how good of an air filtration system you have. For all these reasons, we highly recommend annual or bi–annual duct cleaning in and surrounding areas.
Traditional indoor air pollutants can cause health concerns and even home structural problems. Conventional indoor air pollutants include radon, molds, pet dander, pollen, lead dust, and asbestos. These are all threats to a person's health. Poor indoor air quality can cause:
- Dry eyes
- Nasal congestion
- Lung cancer.
If you experience any of these or are afraid of the risk, contact us today.
Aside from health concerns, poor indoor air quality can also result in structural rot in the walls, window condensation, peeling paint, back-drafting appliances, damp floors, musty odors, and mold growth. Regulating the source of pollutants and appropriate ventilation can help indoor air quality.

Duct Inspection and Maintenance
Beyond basic duct cleaning which should be performed every year or two, there are other maintenance tasks you should consider having performed to avoid or delay the need for duct repair. We recommend you have your system tested and sealed, especially if it is more than 10 years old. We also recommend dryer vent cleaning, and that you check your home's ductwork on a regular basis for possible issues that might lead to air loss. This can be done in any number of ways by a trained technician that has the tools to inspect your system.
Because ductwork is hidden from sight and will continue to work whether it is clean or not, it is important that you schedule duct cleaning in advance regardless of how it operates now. This preventive maintenance will ensure your system does not develop problems in the future and that small problems it has now can be caught and fixed before they start to cost you money.
