We receive an uptick in calls during the summer or late spring. After all, this is the season of maximum AC use. With spring coming to an end, now is a good time to get a head start and make arrangements for summer duct cleaning.
Why Summer Duct Cleaning Matters in King County
HVAC use tapers down at the end of winter and resumes at the onset of summer. During the time in between, dust buildup occurs in the air ducts. This includes contaminants like outdoor pollen, which is circulated indoors when the AC comes on.
Even minor dust buildup can significantly inhibit airflow, forcing the AC to exert more energy. This increases power use and leads to HVAC wear and tear in the internal components.
How Dirty Is an Uncleaned Air Duct?
The dirtiness comes down to when the ducts were last cleaned, if ever. The average homeowner spends between 60% and 90% indoors. This means you spend the majority of the time exposed to recirculating contaminants.
This is especially worrisome because some estimates suggest indoor air is about 70% more polluted than outdoor air. Many illnesses like respiratory issues are linked to indoor conditions.
We recommend an air duct cleaning at least once every two years. This should also include professional carpet cleaning because the fibers can also trap pollutants, such as pet dander and cigarette smoke.
