Why is clean ductwork important?
The ductwork in your home is an essential part of your home’s ventilation. In fact, it is the delivery system for the entire house. And if it is dirty, your AC system will be pumping polluted air to all the rooms of your home.
How often should AC ducts be cleaned?
Most recommend you get your air ducts cleaned every three to five years. However, suppose you have family members in the home that struggle with asthma and other respiratory problems. In that case, you may consider having them cleaned more often. Clean air ducts can make a significant difference in the wellness of your family.
Will repairing and cleaning ductwork help with dust in the house?
Yes, leaky ducts and vents pull in dust, mold, dander, and allergens. Then it is blown into the rooms of your home. Once you get those leaks fixed, be sure to keep your air filters changed as well.
Will I save on my utility bill if I clean the AC ducts?
Yes, you should see a reduction in your utility bills. With less pull on the system and less air escaping, your HVAC system will work more efficiently.
Why is there dust on my ceiling and vents?
When you have dirty filters and dirty ducts, dirty air is pushed out of your vents too. Cleaning the filters, vents, and ducts will eliminate this problem.
What is the difference between a supply and a return vent?
Return vents pull air into the AC unit to be conditioned. There are 3 – 5 on average in a home. Then, the supply vents supply each room with clean air. There are approximately 14 – 15 in the average home.
AC Blower Housing Cleaning Service FAQs
AC Blower Housing Cleaning is vital for maintaining optimal airflow. Here are just a few of the common questions we hear about this service.
Does AC Blower Housing cleaning increase efficiency?
It sure does. Without all the dust, dirt, and debris, your blower wheel will move freely and pull less amperage on the motor. In turn, a clean blower wheel and energy efficiency will lower your utility bills as well.
Will cleaning the housing improve my AC's airflow?
Yes, it will. If your blower housing and wheel are full of heavy debris, the airflow will be inadequate or even stop altogether.
When the motor is free to run as it should in clean housing, there is less wear and tear on the engine, making the unit last its whole lifespan. So, for optimal performance from your AC blower housing, wheel, and motor, keeping the system cleaned is essential.
It is just one more way BreathE-Z ensures homeowners and their families that the air they breathe in the home is clean.
Dryer Vent Cleanout FAQs
Is there a never-ending cycle of laundry in your home? If so, you probably only think about getting it done, not how your dryer works. But each day, we are asked questions from our clients on the function of the dryer and, more importantly, dryer malfunctions. Just remember that dryers need servicing now and again to work well for you and your family.
What is the dryer vent? Hint: It’s NOT the lint filter.
Believe it or not, many people mistake the lint filter for the dryer vent. And that can be a big problem. The tube behind your dryer connected to the wall and dryer is the vent that needs cleaning. And a dirty dryer vent can cause a dryer fire.
Do clogged dryer vents actually cause home fires?
Yes! When your dryer vent is obstructed, airflow is restricted allowing the heat to build up in the dryer and vent. This situation can quickly escalate into a fire.
How often should I have my dryer vent cleaned?
Experts recommend that homeowners have dryer vents inspected and cleaned annually. However, some factors may alter the number of months you can go between cleanouts. Here are some that we have encountered.
- Older dryers may need to be cleaned more often.
- When your dryer vent has several elbows, bends, and elevations to reach the outside, you may need to have it cleared more often.
- Compact or stackable dryers have lower airflow and may need service more often.
- Large households with lots of laundry may need cleaning every six months.
- Long dryer vents need cleaning more often.
Does dryer vent cleaning affect my utility bill?
Why yes, it can. It can save you up to $20 per month on your electric bill, that’s up to $240 annually. And, you are using less electricity, which is good for your dryer’s efficiency and the planet.
Can I clean my dryer vent on my own?
Dryer fires are nothing to play around with. So, yes, you can clean your vent if it is less than 4 feet long. But anything over that should be professionally cleaned for safety’s sake.
