Air ducts can get dirty and clogged over time. This can affect how well your HVAC system works, which can lead to higher energy bills and poor indoor air quality. You may also experience symptoms like allergies or asthma attacks when your air ducts are dirty or clogged.
You may also notice that your HVAC system is running longer and harder to keep your home comfortable. This can shorten the lifespan of your system, which can be expensive to replace. Having your air ducts cleaned on a regular basis can help prevent these problems. We offer air duct cleaning for both residential and commercial customers in the Falls Church area. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
The frequency with which you should have your air ducts cleaned is dependent on a number of factors, including how often you use your heating and cooling system and the type of filters that are installed. In general, however, it’s a good idea to have your air ducts cleaned once every three to five years.
If you have a pet, smoke in your home or suffer from allergies, it’s recommended that you have your ducts cleaned more frequently. You can also call us for an estimate if you’re unsure how often to schedule your cleaning.
Our technicians will start by inspecting the condition of your HVAC system and walk through your home with you to identify potential problems with your vents, fans, wiring connections and other components that could be contributing to poor indoor air quality or decreased energy efficiency that could lead to high utility bills. They’ll then use specialized tools and equipment to clean your ducts, vents and other parts of your system. If there are any issues with the inside of your ducts or vents, our technicians can identify them and recommend solutions.
The process of cleaning your ducts should be as simple and clean as possible, leaving you with a system that’s fully functional and ready to keep your home comfortable. Our technicians will put down protective drop cloths around your home before starting work and use specialized equipment that blows the dust and debris from your ducts into a vacuum. Afterward, we’ll thoroughly clean up the area and leave it in better shape than when we arrived.
A chimney that isn’t cleaned properly can lead to fires and other issues that could cause your house to burn down. Chimneys are also prone to getting blocked with dead birds, leaves, and other things that get into them, which causes smoke to get into your house instead of coming out of the top of the chimney.
A blocked chimney can also cause carbon monoxide to leak into your home, which can lead to headaches, dizziness and other health problems. If you’re not sure if your chimney needs to be cleaned, then call TJK. We can inspect your chimney and let you know if it needs to be cleaned or not.
One common sign that your fireplace needs cleaning is when it smells like a campfire. This is usually due to a build-up of soot and ash in the fireplace. Another sign is when fires burn oddly. This can be due to a blockage in the fireplace, which prevents the fire from getting enough oxygen. Additionally, it may take more effort to get a fire going and keep it going. This is because the build-up of soot and ash makes it difficult for the fire to ignite. If smoke starts filling the room, this is also a sign that the fireplace needs to be cleaned. This happens when the air can’t circulate properly, and the smoke gets trapped in the room. The fireplace damper being black is another tell-tale sign that it’s time to clean the fireplace. Lastly, if there are oily marks on the fireplace walls, this is also a sign that soot and ash have built up on the surfaces. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to clean your fireplace as soon as possible.
