Those who live in Sarasota really put their air conditioning units through a lot of hard work during warmer weather. With fall here and winter on the way, all of that heavy use has probably left your ducts dirty, causing your indoor air quality to worsen and your energy bills to increase. While you might be tempted to clean your air ducts yourself, there are three good reasons to leave it to the professionals.
Your time is valuable. Why waste time trying to find, reach, and clean all the nooks and crannies where dirt and dust can hide in your air ducts when you could have a professional do it for you? Certified HVAC professionals know air ducts inside out; they know where to look and what to look for. Cleaning your air ducts yourself will take more time than hiring a professional, and you may not be able to do the job as thoroughly. A professional can guarantee that every inch of your ducts will be clean.
When your HVAC professional arrives, ask him or her about the craziest things they’ve ever found in ducts. Bugs, spiders, and snakes can all find their way into your air ducts, and some of them may be poisonous or even deadly. Fortunately, trained HVAC professionals know what to do when they find the unexpected—like animals in your air ducts. It’s much better to call a HVAC service than to put yourself at risk.
Professionals know how to find mildew and mold, which can be very resilient even after cleaning. Your HVAC professional can also treat key areas to keep mold from returning, thus saving you money in the long run. A professional is trained to notice potential issues while they are servicing your air ducts—issues that could become an even more expensive problem if not addressed soon. These are things you wouldn’t notice if you went the do-it-yourself route.
