When it comes to indoor air quality, it’s important to keep your HVAC system’s air ducts clean. There will always come a time when you need to check your system’s air ducts to see if the filter needs to be cleaned or replaced. As your local expert on residential and commercial HVAC repair, in this post we discuss how you can keep your air ducts clean. Here’s what you need to know:
Keep Your Ducts Dry
Keeping yout ducts dry means being sure to inspect your system and ducts for any signs of water damage and leaks. Make sure the cooling coil and condensate pan are cleaned and drained respectively as well. There shouldn’t be any wet spots around the coil’s insulation, either. As for the air ducts, they should be properly sealed and insulated in places like attics, where it’s usually not air conditioned. This helps prevent moisture from entering and damaging the system.
Keep Your Ducts Clean
As much as possible, you need to prevent dirt and other particulates from entering your HVAC system. This means ensuring your air filter is working as it should and changing it regularly when it’s become dirty. As air conditioner installation experts, we highly recommend using high efficiency air filters or the air filters recommended by your HVAC unit’s manufacturer.
Use an Air Purifier
Investing in an air purifier can also aid in keeping your air ducts clean. Depending on the model, it can keep the circulating air clean and breathable, which helps keep your air ducts clean as well. With a good air purifier, you’ll be able to effectively extend the lifespan of your air filters, but it’s probably still a good idea to regularly maintain your system.
