Do I Need Duct Cleaning for My Home in the Summer?

Duct cleaning is a necessary regular service for your home’s ventilation system to help improve your home’s indoor air quality. Keeping ducts free from dust, dirt, pollen, dander, dust mites, carpet and furniture fibers, and debris from construction is an important part of maintaining your indoor air quality and keeping your air conditioner and forced-air heater in good, efficiency working order.

This job requires the work of specialists armed with the right tools—power vacuums, agitators—and isn’t something you should try yourself with a few rags, spray cleaners, and the hose of standard vacuum. For duct cleaning in Nashville, TN, contact the experienced team at Mid-State Air Conditioning and Heating. We will do the job fast and thoroughly.

Is it Time to Schedule Duct Cleaning This Summer?

There is no “season” for duct cleaning…you should schedule it as soon as you need it. If you have delayed too long with arranging for cleaning—and more than two years has passed—then this summer is as good a time as any to have the work done. If your ductwork has thick layers of contamination inside it, you need to have the cleaning done as soon as possible; the clogging of dust, dirt, and other pollutants will already have a negative effect on your indoor air and likely is raising your costs to cool your home by obstructing the passage of air from the AC.

There are some ways to know if you should schedule duct cleaning this summer. The first and easiest is to perform a visual check on the ductwork. Unscrew the vent cover from one of the registers in your house, preferably one along the ground. Then, holding a digital camera, reach inside the ductwork as far as you can and snap a picture of the interior. If the image shows you something that looks like the lint filter in a dryer after running a load of gray sweaters, then you are overdue for duct cleaning.

There are also some environmental conditions to watch for that will tell you it’s time to call for summer duct cleaning. Continual dust and dirt inside your house that doesn’t seem to go away no matter how much cleaning you do; a spike on your power bills from the AC overworking; and an increase in allergy-like symptoms among people in your household. And, no matter the conditions, if more than two years has passed since the last time you had duct cleaning, you need to consider calling in the professionals right away.
