Chimney Repair Questions, Including Caps & Dampers

Q. How often should I get my air ducts cleaned? A. There isn’t a hard and fast schedule we can provide; air duct cleanings should be scheduled on an as-needed basis.

So when are they needed? Once a lot of dust and debris has begun to clog up the system—dust and particles coming out of the vents are a sign of this heavy build-up. The time it takes for air ducts to reach this stage can really vary from home to home and region to region.

Now, we recommend cleaning before you start to see that amount of build-up—an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, after all. Plus, a heavily clogged system is forced to work harder, which can mean higher energy bills and a shorter lifespan for the system.

Q. What are warning signs that my air duct cleaning system needs attention? A. If you see dust or particles coming out of your vents, that means you need a Fresh Sweeps air duct cleaning. At that point, the system is likely getting choked by impacted debris, which can lead to more allergens and reduced HVAC effectiveness.

Q. How long does an air duct cleaning normally take? A. For many average-sized homes, the time ranges from two to four hours. Larger homes, especially those with multiple furnaces, take longer, ranging from four to six hours. It’s an intensive process, but we’ll do everything we can to minimize our impact on your home and your day.
