For expert HVAC service, you can count on All Service Heating and Air. We provide personalized, high-quality duct cleaning service to residents and businesses in Plano, Dallas, Leonard, Richardson, and the surrounding Texas areas.
With high volumes of air moving through your ductwork, it’s no surprise that your air ducts accumulate dust, particles, mold, insects, rodents, and other allergens. To keep these contaminants out of your living and working space, All Service Heating and Air can clean your ducts regularly and seal off potential points of entry to reduce future buildups.
Did you know that the air inside your living areas may contain 100 times more contaminants than the air outdoors? Generally we think of pollution existing outdoors, but fail to realize that the air inside our homes is far more polluted. Today’s homes are sealed tight in order to improve energy efficiency, but this also traps pollutants and allergens inside the home, and they are easily deposited in your ductwork as your heating and cooling systems recirculate conditioned air. These contaminants, combined with the dark and damp conditions which exist inside the duct system, can go on to breed mold, mildew, and other bacteria that can impact your health if you are breathing them every day.
Do I Need Air Duct Cleaning?
A consultation from one of All Service Heating and Air’s duct cleaning specialists will let you know if duct cleaning is right for you. If you can see a visible buildup of debris when you peer through your registers, you should consider duct cleaning. Some health issues can indicate the need to have your ducts cleaned, as the allergens and contaminants inside the system can create such problems. If you or a family member suffers from allergies that worsen indoors, or irritated eyes or nose, call for duct cleaning.
What Should I Expect during a Duct Cleaning Visit?
Our trained specialist will open your ductwork’s access ports and doors, then use special brushes and a high-power vacuum to clean your supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers, condensate drain pans, heating and cooling coils, fan motor and housing, and air handling unit housing. He’ll also look for potential trouble spots that should be addressed to prevent future problems. He’ll follow industry-safe practices and keep debris contained so that you won’t have to clean up after us or become exposed to irritants. When he’s finished, he’ll close, seal, and re-insulate the access ports and doors.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is air duct cleaning really worth it?
Yes, having your air ducts cleaned is worth it but only if there is substantial visible mold located inside hard surface ducts or in other areas of your AC system; the ducts are infested with rodents or insects; and/or they are clogged with a significant amount of dust, debris and other particles that are actually being released into your home.
2. How much does it cost to have your air ducts cleaned?
The average cost of an air duct cleaning is typically between $350 and $1200, depending on the size of your home and those with more ducts. You should clean your ducts every five to seven years to help enhance system efficiency. The size of your duct work, number of vents, level of contamination and ease of access also influence the price.
3. Can I clean my air ducts myself?
Air duct cleaning is not typically a do-it-yourself type of job. It requires tools that the average person wouldn’t have lying around in their garage. Additionally, an improper cleaning job could damage the ducts. The best thing you can do yourself for your HVAC system simply involves a vacuum cleaner. Use the vacuum brush attachment to clean the floor grilles and wall duct registers.
4. How do I know if my air ducts need to be cleaned?
Your air ducts should be cleaned if you haven’t changed your air filter in months, if you see dust on the registers and vent covers, if you detect mold in or around your HVAC system, if the airflow doesn’t feel consistent from room to room, and if you can hear noises in the ductwork.
5. Can dirty air ducts make you sick?
Yes, it is possible that in homes with dirty air ducts, individuals may experience symptoms similar to that of allergies, including coughing, sneezing and a runny nose. Mold, dust and other contaminants in your ducts could also cause a sore throat, headaches and even dizziness.
