Can Duct Cleaning Help My AC?

Certain areas of your air conditioning system can be more prone to attracting and accumulating dust and dirt, and one of these areas is your ductwork system. You don’t need to have your ductwork cleaned every year, but it is recommended that you schedule your ductwork for cleaning every 3-5 years. This is because dust and dirt can build into a significant layer that can, and will, adversely affect your air conditioning system. The experts at Bartels Heating & Cooling have been cleaning ductwork for a long time, and they have the latest tools and training to ensure that the job is done thoroughly and correctly. If it’s been more than 5 years since your last duct cleaning appointment, give us a call today!

How Duct Cleaning Helps Your AC

Duct cleaning has a number of benefits, including helping your air conditioning system run well. Why? First, a significant layer of dust and dirt in your system can restrict air flow, which is essential to the air conditioning cycle; without proper air flow, your system will operate under stressful conditions that can lead to malfunction and even breakdown. Second, once dirt and dust become lodged in your ductwork, they continually cycle through your system and coat other components, including the coils. A layer of dust and dirt on various components will hamper their ability to work which can reduce the efficiency and capability of your air conditioning system. When you hire a professional to perform duct cleaning, any excess dirt and dust are removed from your ductwork, enabling the ducts to operate efficiently and putting a stop to any cycling dust and dirt.

Can I Do It Myself?

Professionals have specialized tools, including visual aid equipment, to clean your ductwork thoroughly. Odds are, you won’t have these types of tools, nor will you have access to them. Additionally, professionals are trained on how to clean effectively and how to use these tools, making them experts in the field. As such, it’s always best to hire trained professionals, like the ones at Bartels Heating & Cooling, to clean your ductwork in Hamilton, OH.
