Air conditioner ducts

One of the most common problem with air conditioning system ducts is the accumulation of dust. That’s why it’s important to clean them at least once a year. Many people do not understand the importance of cleaning the ducts, because of their priorities.

The air ducts have an important effect on the overall performance of the system and also of their health.

These ducts are made from sheets of metal, or sheet metal tubes that carry the cold and hot air through the rooms of your house. They are usually distributed through the entire house and provide ventilation. So think of it as using your ventilation system but with all the dust particles in the ducts. These can cause serious health problems.

If you have a central air conditioning system then you will need to clean it at least once a year. You can do this by yourself. In case of commercial air conditioners the cleaning will need to be done by professionals because the system is a lot bigger than those for household.

These companies have special cleaning equipment. It can cost you $400 to $1500. It depends on the size of the air conditioning system and on the length of the duct work. This will also include changing the filters, cleaning the fans and air ducts. It’s very important to hire a professional for cleaning your air ducts because they are actually a maze of pipes. They are almost impossible to clean by hand.

You should know the ducts need some cleaning when you:

  • see mold formations on your ceiling or walls, near the air ducts
  • find rodent and insect infestation inside your air conditioning ducts
  • have a clogged air duct. Dust buildup or debris can be the cause of that.
