Heating And Air Conditioning Cleaning

Because air ducts are behind the scenes, it’s easy to be unaware of the dust and contaminants that build up inside. Yet they have a large impact on the air you breathe, any allergies or sensitivities, and the utility bills you pay. Heating and air conditioning cleaning, also know as residential HVAC cleaning, is an important part of healthy air quality and home maintenance.

Why Is Heating and Air Conditioning Cleaning Important?

As air passes through the air conditioning unit, furnace and ductwork of the home, particles collect on the duct interiors, fan, cooling and heating elements, filters and registers, making them dirty. These include everything that floats in the house or comes in from the outside, from regular use of the home:

  • Dust and dirt
  • Hair
  • Skin flakes
  • Pet dander
  • Mold spores

Residential HVAC cleaning substantially improves air quality, reduces or eliminates microbial growth, and saves on costs to heat and cool your home.

SCHEDULE A FREE 3-POINT INSPECTION

We’ll come to your home to inspect your furnace, air conditioner and duct work at no charge, to see if they even need cleaning or service.

Do You Need Heating and Air Conditioning Duct Cleaning?

Action Duct will do a complimentary inspection of your ducts, air conditioner and furnace without any obligation to schedule service. Or, if you prefer, you can inspect your air ducts yourself, as described below, to see if you need AC duct cleaning.

  1. Using a screwdriver, remove a wall, floor or ceiling register.
  2. Use a small mirror and flashlight and take a picture inside the duct.
  3. If there is more than a light coating of dust, dirt, or debris, you should have your ducts cleaned.

Also, in some instances odors develop in the ducts or air handler due to particle buildup. In other cases, dirt may begin blowing out of the registers.

Doing a heating and air conditioning cleaning every 3 to 5 years is recommended, to prevent the continuous buildup of dirt and other particulates in the unit and ductwork.

Factors that Increase the Frequency and Need for Cleaning

  • Occupants who have allergies or asthma
  • Young children or elderly residents
  • Pets, especially those that shed a lot
  • Cigarettes, vapes, cigars or marijuana use
  • Water contamination or damage to the home
  • Home renovation or remodeling projects
  • Living in a smoggier area like Los Angeles
  • Frequent use of the AC and/or heating system

For those who suffer from asthma, allergies or sensitivities, having a dirty HVAC system can exacerbate their symptoms, especially when the heating or cooling turns on in the home. Microbial growth in air conditioning systems can result in higher air concentrations of microscopic organisms (fungi, bacteria, algae, etc.). This can result in illness or symptoms such as:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Sore throats

If any of these symptoms occur most often at home rather than outside the home, or when you’re running the AC or heat, you most likely need your HVAC system cleaned.

There Is a Difference Between Residential HVAC Cleaning Companies

Membership in NADCA, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, matters. Members follow much more stringent standards and technical protocols. Action Duct has been a member since 1991. In fact, our President, Dan Stradford, plays a large role in establishing these guidelines in his role on the NADCA Board of Directors.

It’s vital that all components of the system be cleaned, not only the ducts and registers. Many companies don’t actually do comprehensive work. Action Duct cleans everything, with meticulous attention to detail.

HVAC cleaning scams abound. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Some businesses advertise rock-bottom deals and then deliver incomplete service or engage in aggressive upselling. We don’t.
