Air Vent Cleaning Services in Goodyear, AZ
At Williams Air and Heating, we know how important it is to keep air vents and ducts clean. The primary reason is the air quality and cleanliness in your home.
Vents are the openings to the ducts that carry air to and from your heating and cooling system. For air to enter and exit the ducts, many vents are positioned throughout your home.
When your heating or cooling system is on, it is blowing conditioned air through your home while at the same time, pulling air back in. Supply vents and return vents are the openings that enable air circulation and are openings in the walls of the rooms in your home. If you haven't paid much attention to them in the past, you should start!
The supply vents are the openings where conditioned air enters a room from the furnace to warm you up in cold weather, and of course, in the summer, cool air enters the rooms of your home to cool you off. The return vents act to circulate air back to the source of heating (furnace) or cooling (AC unit).
If any of your return or supply vents are blocked, the system's entire balance is thrown off. Make sure none of your vents are closed or blocked by furniture or other objects. Another good practice is to keep doors to rooms open to improve air movement.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) it is very important to keep your home’s forced air systems clean. Forced air systems include the supply and return air vents and ducts as well as "registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers, heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing."*
The EPA also warns that if not "properly installed, maintained, and operated, components of forced air systems may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris."* Williams Air and Heating employs professional technicians for expert installation of systems, as well as proper maintenance so you know you are in good hands. We consistently get 5-star reviews, because we stand behind our work.
Regular vacuuming of the outside of vent openings and as much around the inside as possible with a vacuum attachment tool helps to keep additional dust and debris from getting trapped inside.
