In this blog entry, the Chicago air duct cleaning and Chicago dryer vent cleaning team here at Air Flows Chicago will detail the most important ways to clean your ductwork to prepare for Autumn and Winter.
Cleaning Air Ducts and Air Vents
The most important thing to do in early Autumn is to check every single one of your air vents and air ducts. If you haven’t already done so, look over your home ventilation system outputs and wipe them down or vacuum them. Debris that can be trapped inside outputs can be blown into the air that you breathe. Trapped debris can also cause serious clogs, cause ventilation issues, and can even spark fires when heat is turned on.
HVAC system tune ups are always a good idea, especially if it’s been a few months since the last time your HVAC system received maintenance. HVAC systems are going to be your heat source as it turns into Winter, and you want to make sure that your system is working properly.
When cleaning or attending to your HVAC system if you notice that your heat isn’t generating or blowing the way it used to or should be, you should consider replacing your HVAC system. When ventilation systems blow out, they are very hard to fix. If your home is around 20 years old, and still works on its own HVAC system, we recommend asking a professional about the possibility of an HVAC system upgrade.
