WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CLEAN YOUR HVAC SYSTEM and AIR DUCTS?
Anytime, but Winter is often cited as the most necessary time for duct cleaning. Have you ever smelled a damp musty odor when turning on your heating system? If so, you may want to consider cleaning your HVAC system, including the air duct systems. Over time dust, mold spores and debris can accumulate in your duct system.
Warm, moist air from summer months act as an aid in fungal growth. These contaminants in ducts can be distributed to the breathing zone creating a cycle of unhealthy indoor air. Air ducts are a major source of contaminants in the workplace. Removing these allergy triggers will result in a cleaner, healthier indoor environment.
There is also the cost benefit of a properly maintained system. Through normal operation, dust and particulate gradually collect on HVAC components. Particulate build up on coils leads to: • Longer heating times and additional energy consumption • Restricts airflow overtime • Restricts airflow through dampers and diffusers Cleaning the entire HVAC system restores the system to its’ original operating conditions, saving energy costs and extending the life of the system.
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) document “Assessment, Cleaning and Restoration, 2016” defines very specific procedures related to HVAC system cleaning. PROAC Corporation is a proud member of NADCA. All HVAC system maintenance projects are supervised by NADCA certified Air System Cleaning Specialists (ASCS).
