Why should I keep air ducts clean?
Indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air and air filters remove only a small percentage of these pollutants. Over time they tend to accumulate in the ductwork and Air Duct Cleaning South Pasadena experts recommend cleaning them at least once a year. This way the pollutants do not enter the living area through the HVAC unit.
What parts of the air duct system should be cleaned?
There are specific parts of the air duct system that have to be cleaned and they include supply and return grills, the furnace or air conditioner air handler, and the interior of the supply and return vents. All of them must be cleaned at one go and even if one is ignored, it can contaminate the other components.
Why is the dryer overheated?
Clothes dryers will be overheated when air circulation is not possible. When lint is concentrated in the dryer vents, airflow will be difficult according to our experts in South Pasadena. The dryer won't work efficiently without sufficient air but actually twice as hard to dry the clothes. Consequently, it will be overheated and dryer vents cleaning will be required.
Why is the dryer duct filled with dust and debris?
This happens when the outdoor flap or hood is damaged or hasn’t been cleaned regularly. Generally, metal hoods with mesh cover are best for keeping debris and pests out of the duct. Another possible cause is the lack of draft damper, which works to prevent outdoor drafts from pushing dirt and debris into the duct. It is an important component.
When is it mandatory to use more efficient HVAC air filters?
If a member of your household suffers from allergy and/or asthma, you should consider using air filters which have a MERV rating of 10 or higher. These filters will trap the highest possible number of particles causing allergies and irritation such as dust and pollen. People who have children, pets and/or smokers in their household will benefit from using filters with greater efficiency also.
