Tips for Air Duct Maintenance
The air ducts in your home play a crucial role in maintaining good indoor air quality. Neglected air ducts can harbor dust, allergens, and even mold, which can negatively affect your health and comfort. Here are some tips to help you take care of your air ducts:
Your HVAC system’s ductwork functions behind the scenes, carrying warm and cool air to every room of your home and keeping you and your loved ones comfortable year-round. Over time, the ducts themselves collect dirt, debris and airborne pathogens that are then spread throughout the rest of your home.
Contaminated ducts are not only a potential health hazard, but can also have a significant impact on your HVAC system’s efficiency. When ducts and vents are partially blocked by dust and dirt, the system has to use that much more energy to perform its job, and this can end up costing you money on your monthly utility bills.
Fortunately, United Home Services offers professional air duct services to keep them clean and your HVAC working at its full potential so you and your family can breathe easy and save on energy costs!

Air Duct Inspection
Just like any other part of your home, your air ducts experience wear and tear over time that can result in significant damage and impede their overall functioning. The ducts may become separated at the seams or develop holes or gaps that allow air to escape and unwanted contaminants to enter, wasting energy and diminishing your air quality.
Though there are some telltale signs that could indicate an issue in your air ducts (a spike in energy usage, a foul odor from your vents, etc.), the best way to make sure they are in peak condition is to have a professional thoroughly examine them. At United Home Services, our team of air quality experts provides comprehensive inspections to ensure your air ducts are clean and working properly. Following the inspection, we can provide you with a free estimate to remedy any issues we uncover.

Air Duct Cleaning FAQ’s
How does air duct cleaning work and why do I need it?
Air duct cleaning is a somewhat complicated process if you do not have the equipment or expertise to get the job done properly. In the simplest terms, the process involves attaching an industrial strength vacuum to your air duct system and sealing off the various registers around your home to create what is called negative pressure.
Then, rotating brushes and air compression tools are used to free the dust from one duct at a time so it can be collected by the vacuum. This process must be repeated for both the supply side, which pumps treated air throughout your home, and the return side, which returns the air to the air handler.
Having your air ducts cleaned every few years is crucial to your household health because the dust, dirt, debris and even airborne pathogens that get trapped there will continue to circulate throughout your home. This diminishes your indoor air quality and can result in health problems like allergies, asthma and even certain respiratory conditions.

How long does A/C duct cleaning take?
The duration of the job depends almost entirely on how extensive the ductwork system is (typically determined by the size of the home) and how dirty the ducts are.
A small to moderate sized home that has had a duct cleaning performed in the past 3-5 years can take as little as an hour or two. With larger homes and those that have not had an air duct cleaning in a long time, it may take up to an entire day to clean the entire system properly.
How much is HVAC duct cleaning going to cost?
The cost of having your HVAC duct system cleaned varies depending on the size of your home and how extensive the system is. Some larger homes even have two separate A/C systems, which will impact the overall cost. With that said, smaller homes typically range between $150 and $350 whereas larger homes with more complex systems tend to fall more in the $7-800 range.

How often should I have my air conditioning ducts cleaned?
Contaminants will gather at different speeds depending on usage and location, so United Home Services suggests having your ducts inspected or cleaned every three to five years. However, in areas where there is a significant amount of pollen like Connecticut or Pennsylvania, your household would benefit from having your ducts cleaned every 2 years. The Environmental Protection Agency suggests that homeowners have their ducts inspected by a professional HVAC technician to determine whether or not they are in need of a cleaning.
I’m renting - who is responsible for air duct cleaning?
By law, landlords are not required to have air duct cleaning performed nor are they responsible for reimbursing a tenant who wants to have this service performed themselves. However, the definite answer to this question can be found by going through your leasing agreement.
Even in cases in which air duct cleaning is not the landlord’s responsibility, many are reasonable enough to compromise with their tenants and split the cost if an HVAC professional deems a cleaning as necessary. If you are interested in having your ducts cleaned but don’t want to get stuck with the bill, you should contact your landlord first and come to an agreement about who will pay for the service and how much each party will be responsible for.
