The ventilation system of homes (The “V” in “HVAC”) is something that people often overlook when it comes to maintenance and upkeep. This isn’t surprising when you consider that the ducts are hidden behind walls and in the attic and ceiling. Out of sight is often out of mind—even if it shouldn’t be. Letting the ducts alone year after year will eventually lead to serious efficiency issues with heating and cooling, as well as other problems.
The solution is to call up our professionals at Lee Heating & Cooling and schedule residential duct cleaning. We have the experience, training, and tools to see that we do a thorough job every time—and that you’ll have a ventilation system in excellent condition. Get in touch with us today. We offer quality HVAC service to Pensacola, FL and the surrounding areas.
We understand that people may feel skeptical about hiring professionals to clean ductwork. It’s good to have some skepticism, since there are outfits that offer suspiciously low duct cleaning work that does almost no good. But when you come to licensed and certified contractors, like us, you’ll discover that routine duct cleaning is enormously beneficial:
You can’t clean ductwork by shoving the hose of a vacuum cleaner into the open vents. That doesn’t even scratch the surface! It takes trained duct cleaners to handle the work. Professionals use power vacuums and rotating brushes to provide the level of deep cleaning that covers all of the ductwork.
The job takes about an hour, and requires the cleaners to attach the power vacuum onto the ductwork near the air handler. The vacuum changes the pressure in the sealed ventilation system, which agitates the dust and other particles from the duct walls. The vacuum can then easily suction up the debris. Rotary brushes are then used for tough individual spots.
