Regular maintenance for air duct longevity

Posted on Feb 13, 2019

As a homeowner, you know there is maintenance that you should do on a regular basis to keep your residential property up to snuff. One aspect of this upkeep is regular maintenance that helps prevent duct contamination, like mold or a vermin infestation. Here are our top recommendations to keep your air ducts in working condition for as long as possible:

Change filters

This item should be a staple on your regular home maintenance schedule. Changing filters in your home helps ensure your machinery, such as HVAC units and air ducts, continue to work at their maximum capacity for as long as possible.

Vacuum regularly

Cleaning your home, such as vacuuming and dusting, on a regular basis can help alleviate the amount of dust and debris that accumulated in your air ducts. This one is especially important if you have pets that shed, or if there are a lot of people living in your home. A quick once-over with a high-powered vacuum every week or a few times per month can drastically cut down on the pressure on your air duct system.

Use high-efficiency filters

In additional to changing your filters regularly, ensure you are using high-efficiency filters that will add another level of cleaning power.

Seal HVAC systems when necessary

If you’re doing work on your home, such as large-scale painting or renovation projects, make sure you seal your HVAC systems. This prevents any additional debris or chemicals from making their way into your air ducts, which could cause future issues.

Clean your ducts regularly

Having your ducts serviced regularly by a professional HVAC cleaning team will help increase the longevity of your units and help save money. It can also prevent health conditions and keep your home cleaner!
