Is It Time for an Air Duct Cleaning?
During these seasons, air conditioning and heating systems have accumulated dust, dander, pollen, lint, and other allergens that can affect the respiratory health of the family.
That’s when air duct cleaning is in order. Cleaning your air ducts will ensure that the heating and air conditioning system will work optimally, creating the most comfortable indoor climate for homes. Regularly cleaning your air ducting will also extend the functional lifespan of the system. Investing in air conditioning systems for comfortable home living does not come cheap, so it’s very important to get the most use out of them.
At Ventwerx, our San Jose air duct cleaning service is performed with utmost care and great attention to detail by our highly trained technicians.
Professional Air Duct Cleaning
That’s not all — our air duct cleaning service always includes a thorough inspection of the system. Our technicians keep an eye out for any signs of damage in the air duct and other potential concerns. We take note of each and every one of them and report these issues to homeowners so they can decide to have repairs or preventive work implemented in order to ensure complete and proper functioning.
If clients are ready for repair or preventive work to be carried out, then we at Ventwerx are also ready for the task because our technicians are properly trained for this additional work as well.
Air duct maintenance is definitely a must, it should be performed during the spring, before the AC season, and in the fall before the furnace season. Along with replacing air filters every 90 days.
We always say it should be done more frequently for good indoor air quality year-round, especially for households that have a menagerie of pets and severe allergies.
Animals attract and release allergens that can make their way into the system and compromise air quality. A quarterly air duct cleaning is recommended to keep a healthy HVAC system and good indoor air quality.
We Also Do Dryer Vent Cleaning
According to the National Fire Prevention Association, between the years of 2010 and 2014, local fire departments responded to 15,970 house structure fires involving either washing machines or clothes dryers. 92% of these fires involved dryers.
These laundry room fires resulted in 13 deaths, 440 injuries, and $238 million in property damage.
You should get your dryer vents cleaned at least once a year, removing lint, dust, pet dander, and other flammable material.
Because dryer vents are flexible, they are also somewhat delicate. Attempting dryer vent cleaning without the proper tools will almost always cause damage to the vents, which then need to be replaced or repaired. Most dryer vents can be cleaned by our team of professionals in less than hour.
Dryer vent cleaning is one small preventative maintenance technique that is often overlooked, but can save you money in energy bills, clean the air in your home, help your clothes dry faster, and reduce the potential for fire in your home.
Most dryer vents should be cleaned once a year. However, depending on the age of the dryer, frequency of use, and the length of the vent, a dryer vent may need attention more frequently.
