Is Air Duct Cleaning Necessary?

Air ducts are hidden away in the walls of your Idaho home, making them all too easy to forget.

Don’t let that happen to you. Air ducts play a vital role in your comfort and health.

Over time, ductwork collects dust and grime that can impact your indoor air quality (IAQ). Additionally, leaks can contribute to energy losses. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates most homes lose up to 30 percent of the airflow in their ductwork because of leaks and tears.

Western Heating & Air Conditioning is pleased to offer professional air duct cleaning and maintenance. We’ll ensure healthy air flows through your Eagle home at maximum efficiency.

When Should I Schedule a Cleaning?

Routine air duct cleaning helps prevent dust, pollen, dander, and other harmful airborne contaminants from circulating throughout your home. Clean ducts also increase the efficiency and lifespan of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment.

The team at Western Heating & Air Conditioning also recommends changing the filter for your furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner based on the manufacturer’s recommendation. Inspect your filter—if no light passes through, it’s dirty and needs to be replaced.

Sometimes, there are pressing matters that warrant immediate duct cleaning. Call for service right away if any of the following scenarios apply:

  • Water got into your ducts.
    Did you have a leak or flooding that got into your vents? There’s likely standing water left over, an open invitation for mildew and mold growth. This can harm your air quality, particularly if members of your household or guests have allergies.
  • Youve had a pest infestation.
    Mice, rats, and cockroaches are all small enough to fit into your ducts. They also leave behind droppings that can carry disease and spread airborne allergens. If you’ve had a recent pest infestation, duct cleaning is critical for ridding your home of contaminants.
  • Your home recently had work done.
    Was there a recent renovation in your Eagle home? Even if the crew did an excellent job cleaning up your living space, don’t forget about your ducts. When construction happens, dust and debris fly up in the air and settle in your ductwork. These harmful particles can circulate through your forced air system without proper duct cleaning.
