When is the last time you thought about cleaning out your heating and cooling system? If you’re like most homeowners, the answer is either not lately or maybe even never. If you’ve never hired a professional for air duct cleaning services (or it’s been a little while), then you could potentially have poor indoor air quality and have dust and debris floating around in your duct system. Dirty air ducts can also be a good way to waste energy, leading to higher electric bills and an inefficient system.
Kiwi has been performing HVAC cleaning services for over 30 years and our process is fine tuned to ensure that your system will run efficiently, increase good air flow throughout your home and ensure that your ducts are clean.
Want to learn more about how to clean your air vents? Read on for more information about Kiwi’s air duct cleaning process and how it can benefit you and your whole household.
Kiwi’s Duct Cleaning Process
A dirty HVAC system requires more energy for it to run, and the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling your home is wasted. National air duct cleaners like Kiwi Services will thoroughly disinfect your HVAC system, including the air supply vent, return vent, cooling coils, heat exchangers so that the system will run better and to prevent health problems within the home.
Your Kiwi Services HVAC professional will remove the dust and debris in your system by completing the following:
- Cleaning out the unit, squirrel cage, fan, and all the accessible air handling components in the furnace
- Removing and hand washing of vent covers
- Vacuuming individual ducts to remove debris
- Applying an antimicrobial treatment throughout the system to disinfect
- Cleaning surrounding vent areas
- Reinstalling the vent covers
- Cleaning or replacing the filter or installation of a new filter
After a professional cleaning from a duct cleaning company, you should start to notice that the air circulating within your home is fresher, cleaner, and that your energy bills should take a significant drop because all of the ducts and equipment have been cleaned and disinfected.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
In addition to HVAC cleaning, Kiwi Services also offers dryer vent cleaning. You may be thinking “cleaning my dryer vent is something I can do on my own”—just like changing out your air filters—but our dryer vent cleaning tools can reach better and get the job done faster than a tool you may have at home.
Cleaning your dryer vents is not only something to do to keep your home fresh, but it can also be a life-saving measure. Over time, a significant amount of lint can build up in your dryer vent and if it’s not able to circulate freely then it could potentially ignite a fire.
