Uneven Air Conditioning? Have an Air Conditioning Technician in Gilbert Check the Air Ducts
The average high temperature for Gilbert, Arizona in July is 106 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s no wonder that residents there keep their air conditioning systems in good shape. Most of them have an Air Conditioning Gilbert contractor inspect and service their air conditioner in the spring, before the hottest summer months arrive. While they may diligently take care of their air conditioning unit, they may be less fastidious about their air ducts. Many homeowners may not have had their air ducts cleaned since they were installed.
That’s unfortunate because these areas are dark and moist and can breed many dangerous types of bacteria. To make matters worse rats, mice, bats and other rodents can make air ducts their home. Their droppings can carry deadly diseases, if inhaled. If a homeowner starts to hear noises in the ducts, it may be a signal that animals are in the air ducts. Unfortunately, if the homeowner doesn’t act at this point a few weeks later the small of a decaying rodent may capture their attention. At this point they will probably need to hire both an exterminator and air duct cleaner. Many Air Conditioning Contractor Gilbert clean air ducts as well as maintain the mechanical parts of the system. They may already be cleaning and sterilizing the air ducts in hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers.
Air ducts don’t just get dirty, they can leak as well. If a homeowner notices that some rooms aren’t ever cool in the summer or that their electric bills have sky-rocketed, then a leaky air duct might be to blame. Poorly designed, constructed or maintained air ducts can lose up to 40 percent of the cool air produced by the air conditioning system. It makes sense for a homeowner to incorporate a duct inspection by Arizona Refrigeration Service Inc. technicians in every annual maintenance call.
After they have the ducts cleaned, they should have them cleaned again in two years. The technician can report how dirty they got within two years. If the homeowners have asthma or COPD, they may want the cleaned more frequently. People with allergies will also find that they can breath much easier.
