Duct Cleaning

Duct cleaning is a service aimed at improving indoor air quality and HVAC system efficiency by removing dust, debris, and contaminants from air ducts and vents. Over time, ducts can accumulate dust, mold, pet dander, and other pollutants, which can negatively impact air quality and exacerbate respiratory issues. Professional duct cleaning involves using specialized equipment such as high-powered vacuums, brushes, and air whips to dislodge and remove accumulated debris. This process not only improves airflow and system efficiency but also reduces the circulation of allergens and pollutants, creating a cleaner and healthier indoor environment for occupants. Regular duct cleaning can also help prevent potential HVAC system issues and extend the lifespan of the equipment.

In the 21st century, indoor air quality has emerged as a significant concern, both locally and globally. With homes becoming increasingly airtight to conserve energy, the importance of maintaining clean indoor air has never been higher. However, many homeowners may be unaware that their air duct systems harbor harmful contaminants.

Every time your HVAC system operates, it can distribute dust, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, and bacteria throughout your home’s air. Here are some compelling statistics highlighting the indoor air quality (IAQ) crisis faced by residents of Jackson and beyond:

  1. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental risks to public health.
  2. According to Total Health magazine, one out of every four allergy sufferers attributes their symptoms to fungi and bacteria present in their air duct systems.
  3. Indoor air can be 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air, as reported by various studies and research sources.

Are you frustrated with the air quality in your home? Are seasonal allergies becoming more troublesome? In Jackson, neglecting duct cleaning can transform your home into a haven for dust and allergens, making it a never-ending battle to maintain cleanliness. However, regular ventilation system cleaning offers more than just a clean living space:

  1. Reduced Dusting: Over time, dust accumulates in your ductwork, only to be circulated throughout your living area when you use your furnace or AC. Regular duct cleaning minimizes this occurrence, resulting in less dust settling on your floors, furniture, and surfaces, allowing you to extend the intervals between dusting sessions.

  2. Allergy Relief: With over 50 million Americans suffering from allergies, many attribute their symptoms to mold and fungi thriving in their ventilation systems. Proper duct cleaning removes these allergenic substances, leading to fewer sneezing fits and less itchy eyes for allergy sufferers. Aspen One Hour’s duct cleaning services also eliminate irritants that can trigger coughing in otherwise healthy individuals.

  3. Elimination of Odors: Every home has its own unique smell, but unpleasant odors like pet odors, paint fumes, mildew hints, and tobacco smoke can linger in your home and ducts for extended periods. Professional duct cleaners can effectively remove these odors, leaving you with a fresher, healthier indoor environment.

Before commencing the cleaning process, our technician will introduce themselves and conduct a brief walkthrough of your home. This enables them to locate the registers accurately. Once identified, they will proceed with the cleaning procedure.

Using a rotary brush, we meticulously scrub away accumulated dirt and debris from the ductwork. A powerful vacuum, attached to the brush, swiftly removes dislodged particles. To access the air ducts, the technician carefully removes each register, allowing them to insert the vacuum hose for thorough cleaning. Once each branch is cleaned, the registers are reinstalled.

Accessing the main air duct trunk lines may require removing an end cap or creating an ‘access opening,’ which is later sealed and repaired post-cleaning. Should any issues with your ductwork be detected during the process, our technician will provide recommendations for necessary repairs.

Tips From The HVAC Professionals

Frequently Asked Questions

Contrary to what you may believe, there is no set parameter for sizing a system to the precise square footage of your home. Because homes are all built so differently, your home’s HVAC system will depend on its specific construction. 

To determine the size HVAC system you need, you need to have a licensed HVAC professional from Aspen One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning evaluate your home. Our expert technicians will examine your home’s layout and make recommendations depending on your home’s individual needs. Many factors go into calculating the size of a furnace or air conditioning system your home needs. Factors include the size of your home, the number of windows in your home and which direction they face, elements surrounding your home, and expectations your family has for the comfort of your home.

With all of this information, Aspen One Hour can propose a range of energy-efficient options for perfectly heating and cooling your space all year long. Call us today for your appointment!

Increasing the efficiency of your home’s HVAC system can be relatively easy. Most importantly, be sure to change your filters regularly and with the Aspen Comfort Club membership, you have peace of mind knowing that your filters are replaced at your annual tune-ups! Also, make sure your thermostat is set at higher temperatures in the summer and lower temperatures in the winter. It doesn’t take the body long to adjust to incremental changes of 2-5 degrees, and these changes can save you a lot of money on your energy bills.

Lastly, you’ll want to make sure you keep blinds closed on windows that let in direct sunlight, or use curtains to shade your home while still letting in some light. Though natural light is something we all crave, keeping your blinds and curtains closed during the hottest days of the year, especially if you are not home, can drastically decrease the effort your AC system is required to make. 

Regular maintenance on your HVAC system should be performed twice a year. The licensed professionals at Aspen One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning recommend having your system serviced in the spring before the weather heats up again, and in the fall before the weather cools down. If you’re a member of our Comfort Club, this is included in your pre-paid services along with many other services we offer.

Having regular maintenance performed on your system allows for a longer system life, higher efficiency, and proactive service to stop issues before they happen. Call us today at (517) 879-2049 to schedule your maintenance or to join our Comfort Club!

In older homes that either have boiler or baseboard heating, there may not have ductwork run throughout the home, making it difficult and costly to add a traditional central air conditioning system. Therefore, a ductless heat pump, sometimes called a mini-split air conditioner or a ductless air conditioner, is a cooling system that does not utilize ducts for moving treated air throughout the space. It takes warm air from one area and moving it to another. There is an outdoor compressor unit as well as air handling units indoors to allow the system to function.

The heat is transferred through the system. It goes through the cycle of evaporation and condensation. A refrigerant substance is used through a compressor pump to help achieve this cooled air. The system contains two heat exchange coils. One of those contains the necessary refrigerant material. The other works to evaporate it. This allows the refrigerant to absorb the heat from the area. This happens during the evaporation process. They work to maintain the specific temperature a person desires by using a thermostat to control the movement of the air between the coil systems. If you’re looking to upgrade your home’s comfort but don’t have ductwork, a heat pump can be an excellent option.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the condition of the air within and around homes/buildings, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of the occupants. Good IAQ implies that the air is free from pollutants and contributes to a comfortable and safe living or working environment.

How Can I Improve My IAQ?

To enhance indoor air quality, you can:
  • Change air filters regularly
  • Use air purifiers
  •  Ensure proper ventilation
  •  Control humidity levels
  •  Keep the living space clean and dust-free

How Often Should I Change My Filters?

Regular filter changes are vital for maintaining optimal performance. It is generally recommended to replace filters or clean reusable filters every one to three months. However, the frequency may vary based on factors like the type of filter, the level of usage, and the indoor air quality of your home.

Call Aspen One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning today to schedule your appointment to see how you can improve your air quality.
