Duct Cleaning

Duct cleaning is a very important part of maintaining air quality in your home. All of us at Moore Mechanical Heating and Air Conditioning want to make sure that your home is the safest and healthiest environment for your family to live in. We recommend duct cleaning if you are noticing a lot of dust or dander in your home, if you have recently had a remodel or any construction done to your home, if family members suffer from allergies or asthma or simply if you are looking to increase the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning system.

According to the NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association)

“A good rule of thumb is…’if your ducts look dirty, they probably are,’ and that dirty heating and air conditioning system should be inspected by a reputable, certified HVAC professional. Below are some other reasons homeowners choose to have their air ducts cleaned.

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system taken air in and breathes air out.

Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.

While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.

Energy Savings

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.

When a heating and air conditioning system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.”

When should you clean your dryer vent?
If you notice that your dryer is taking longer than usual to dry, this is a sign to have your dryer vent cleaned out. Another sign is, if the top of the dryer is very hot when the dryer is in use. If you notice lint on the walls, ceiling, or under your dryer. This may mean that your dryer vent came loose or is clogged up.

How often should you have your dryer vent cleaned?
We recommend cleaning your dryer vent at least once per year. However, depending on the age of the dryer, the usage and the way your dryer ducts are installed, it may need to be cleaned out more frequently.

Why could a clogged dryer vent be a potential fire hazard?
A dryer may catch on fire when its vent system is not cleaned out regularly. Lint or debris that is collected inside the vent, blocks air movement through the dryer and out the exhaust. When there is slower air movement than more lint collects on the dryer drum, on the motor and sometimes on electrical connections inside the dryer. That is very bad!! Dry lint is highly combustible, and will catch fire next to heat sources inside the dryer. It is estimated that over 15,000 dryer fires occur each year as a result of poorly maintained dryer vents.
