Is duct cleaning necessary in Toronto?
Duct cleaning is typically not necessary in Toronto or elsewhere in Ontario, however, it does offer several benefits. Though a certain amount of dust in your ducts is not only normal but safe, a visible build-up of dirt, dust, and grime can be hazardous to your health. For example, in some cases, a major build-up of dust can attract pests or lead to mould. If you suspect the presence of mold or pests in your air vents, professional duct cleaning may be necessary. In addition, if you own a pet or recently moved into a new home, you may wish to schedule a duct cleaning for peace of mind. Ultimately, regular duct cleaning is one way to ensure the air in your home is safe and healthy. Please note that duct cleaning is complex and requires special equipment. Therefore, Toronto homeowners should never attempt to clean their air ducts themselves. Instead, you should hire a professional to do the job for you. A professional technician, like those at AtlasCare, will ensure your duct cleaning goes off without a hitch.
How often should home ductwork be cleaned?
Experts recommended that the ductwork in your home be cleaned by a professional every two to three years. However, some Toronto residents may wish to clean their ducts more frequently. For example, if you have pets or someone in your home suffers from allergies or a respiratory illness, you may want to consider having your ducts cleaned annually. Further, no matter when you last had your ducts cleaned, if you notice a build-up of dirt, mold growing, or you suspect your ducts might be infested with pests, you should call a professional HVAC company to clean your ducts immediately.
How do I know if my ductwork needs to be cleaned?
The most obvious sign that your ductwork needs to be cleaned is if you take a peek inside and notice a significant build-up of dirt, dust, and grime, or if you see mould or pests. That said, looking into your ducts isn’t always easy. Therefore, a few other signs that your ductwork needs cleaning is if the rooms in your home are not heating or cooling evenly, if your energy bills have risen without explanation, if you notice an unpleasant odour emanating from your ducts, or if there is unstable or poor airflow throughout your home.
If you still aren’t sure whether the ductwork in your home needs to be cleaned, contact AtlasCare today. One of our technicians would be happy to answer your questions over the phone or come to your home to do an inspection. From there, we can offer our professional opinion as to whether your ducts require cleaning.
What are the benefits of duct cleaning in Toronto?
Duct cleaning offers all kinds of benefits to Toronto residents. First, it can increase the energy efficiency of your home. This is because when your ducts are clean, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to do its job, thereby lowering your monthly energy bills. Second, regular duct cleanings may extend the life of your HVAC system. The dirtier your ducts, the harder your HVAC unit has to work to heat or cool your home, and the more it wears down. Conversely, if your air ducts are clean, you can rest easy knowing you’re getting the best possible performance from your HVAC units, minimizing the cost of HVAC-related repairs in the future and prolonging the lifespan of your system. Lastly, duct cleaning can reduce the amount of dirt, debris, and toxins that make their way into the air in your home. This may be especially beneficial to people with allergies or respiratory illnesses.
In contrast, Toronto homeowners who fail to clean their ducts when needed may face a whole host of consequences. For example, never cleaning your ductwork can lead to restricted airflow in your home, a less efficient (and therefore a more expensive) HVAC system, and unnecessary wear and tear on your existing HVAC units. In extreme circumstances, a build-up of dust, dirt, and grime can become a breeding ground for mould, mites, and other vermin. To prevent a pest infestation, along with mould growth, be sure to clean the ducts in your Toronto home regularly.
What are ducts in a house?
Ducts are a system of tubes, typically made of a rigid metal like aluminum or galvanized steel, that connect the HVAC system with the air vents in your home. The HVAC units in your home, whether they be an air conditioner or a furnace, pull air in through an intake vent, heat or cool the air depending on the thermostat setting, and then force that air to blow through the ducts and air vents to reach every corner of your home. Some people like to think of air ducts in your home like lungs in a person. They exist for air to pass through them and as long as they remain clean, they can continue doing their job. Air ducts that are clear of debris will continue to circulate safe, healthy air. However, if they become clogged or dirty, serious problems can arise. For example, the air quality in your home may become poor and your HVAC system may have to work harder to do its job, shortening its lifespan and increasing your monthly utility bills.
