Most of us never think about what is in our air ducts, yet we should. Air ducts are a critical part of your homes heating and cooling system. Wojo’s offers complete duct cleaning.
We start with a video inspection which lets us inspect your duct system and diagnose problems within heat exchangers and other difficult to access components. Up-close video inspection allows us to accurately determine: debris levels; sources of airflow problems; and locate cracks or leaks.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Excess contaminants, and leaks in your air ducts contribute to your HVAC system working harder and shorten the life of your system. Although furnace filters help, your air ducts still gets dirty through normal use.
When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.
A moderate amount of dust and dirt is normal in your air ducts. Much of the dirt and dust that accumulates in your ducts adheres to the duct surfaces and to the furnace and air conditioning components. This does not mean the dust and dirt will become airborne and enter your breathing space. However, over time, your air ducts can become contaminated and become a breeding ground for mold, bacteria, dust mites and other fungi that are sources of indoor air pollution.
