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.

Contact us at (517) 879-2049 to schedule service and experience why we’re highly rated on Google.

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.

Home Maintenance Plans To Keep Your HVAC Equipment Running Strong

Frequently Asked Questions

Would you ask this question about oil changes? Probably not… As complex pieces of machinery, your air conditioner and furnace are not that different from your car. They need regular maintenance to function efficiently and routine inspections can ensure your equipment stays running strong and issue free year round. Annual maintenance inspections will catch small problems before they become major issues and will give you the peace of mind that you have done all you can to protect your investment on your home heating and cooling systems.

You’ll typically pay $80 to $200 for an A/C or furnace tune-up in Jackson. The amount depends on a variety of items including the number and size of your air conditioning units. Accessibility can also be a factor. While this may seem like a decent chunk of change, it’s a lot cheaper than paying for AC repair or replacement in Jackson. For savings opportunities, we suggest checking out our Comfort Club.

You hear your air conditioner buzzing along, but the number on the thermostat keeps climbing. When you check a nearby vent, you find the air from it is temperate at best. The lack of cold air has three likely causes:

  • Condenser Issues: Condensers in Jackson are typically located outside the home. They can sometimes get blocked by plants and other debris. Seasonal tree shedding is notorious. Clean it off. Your equipment should also be kept at least three feet from other objects.
  • Dirty Filters: You’re meant to change your furnace filter on a monthly basis. This is true even during AC season. Have you been doing that? If not, go check your filter. For anything darker than light grey, replace it with a new one. After changing the filter, give the unit time to adjust.
  • Evaporator Coil Issues: Filled with refrigerant, your evaporator coil is responsible for pulling the heat out of the air. If you see ice on it, the coil is likely the cause of your HVAC problems.

If these changes don’t help, give us a call at (517) 879-2049.

A lot of clients ask us this question. They want to know how much a new system or repair will cost before we evaluate your situation. Because of the numerous factors involved in heating and cooling systems, it’s nearly impossible to accurately provide estimates until we are on site and able to diagnose the problem. Once our technicians have been able to properly diagnose your issue, they will provide you with an itemized list of what needs to be repaired and will provide you with a final price to repair your HVAC issue.

With your typical HVAC system counting for roughly half of your energy consumption, you should always be looking for ways to cut down on energy consumption. If your electric or heating bills are giving you the blues, consider:

  • Upgrading Your System: Though this may seem like a counterintuitive way to save money, this move often pays for itself. Newer units not only cost less to run but also tend to be more environmentally friendly.
  • Opt for an Energy Efficient Cooling System: Going for an ENERGY STAR unit can save you hundreds of dollars each year according to data from the US Department of Energy. Rebates are often available to make new installations more affordable.
  • Landscape Around Your Unit: Make sure that the area around your air conditioner is clear of brush and debris. Plants should be kept two to three feet away from the equipment. You should also turn off the unit every so often to hose down the sides. These obstacles can make it more difficult for your unit to perform at an acceptable level.
  • Keep Your Curtains Closed: To limit summer cooling costs in Jackson, make sure to keep your curtains and windows closed. The less heat introduced into your rooms, the more efficiently your air conditioner can do its job.

Below are a few quick tips to help you navigate no heat issues at your home before calling a technician to diagnose your issue:

  • Is power getting to your furnace or heater? Is a fuse or circuit breaker tripped? Make sure your power switch is in the ON position.
  • When was the last time you swapped out your filter? If it’s been a while, try installing a new filter first. This can solve a lot of heating problems.
  • Verify your thermostat is set to “heat” and not “cool”. If you notice the display is dim, try swapping out the batteries on the back of the unit.
  • Is there snow or other debris blocking your outdoor vent? If so, remove the obstruction. This will allow your system to work more effectively.

If you still don’t have heat, give us a call right away at (517) 879-2049 and we will get a technician to your home ASAP to diagnose and repair your heating issue.
