The Importance of Duct Cleaning

Feb 8, 2022

Believe it or not, your home needs to “breathe” just as much as you do– and air ducts are its way of doing so. Duct systems inevitably collect airborne paraphernalia the same way humans end up drawing bacteria into our lungs. Eventually, the duct will become congested, affecting the quality of the air you breathe inside your home.

Got Any Pets?

Animal dander can be sucked into duct systems in the same way dust and dirt can. With the added source of congestion (along with possible increased dirt from floors muddied by little paws!), it’s a good idea to check up on your duct system often to ensure it’s clean.

Allergies in the Household?

Breathing low-quality air day in and day out is harmful for anyone, but the issue becomes even worse for those who suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems. Allergens like pollen, dust, and pet dander are easily taken into a functioning duct system, then distributed out again if the duct becomes congested. Additionally, any household member who experiences headaches, nasal congestion, or other sinus problems at night or in the morning is likely impacted by a congested vent. Low air quality is a key factor in consistent issues like these.

How You Know It’s Time for a Cleaning

If your HVAC system takes on a musty or stale odor every time it runs, it’s probably time for a cleaning. Rapid dust buildup in your home shortly after you’ve cleaned is another sign your air quality has decreased. As a general rule of thumb, homeowners should have their duct systems cleaned every two to five years, but it’s important to schedule a professional cleaning more often depending on any respiratory issues in your household.

"Rob Will is the owner of Will Air and was very responsive. I got several quotes for this project and he
was the only one that did a very through inspection of my existing setup, taking pictures, measurements
and notes before he gave me an estimate. He provided many options and was easy to negotiate with and gave me a lot of information about BGE rebates (which no one else had mentioned). He also had the best attitude, for what it's worth. Regardless, I believe I got a fair price and that he offered a better system for my money compared to others. He arranged a time and date a week out to perform the install. I got a call the day before the install to remind me of the next day, and the next day his crew showed up 15 minutes early. They were very professional and I had heat by the evening and they were finished the next day. I paid and signed that I was happy with the work, and afterwards - as the guy was opening the furnace to show me the insides - he noticed a leak - and stayed an extra hour, late on a Friday, to further repair the new system. This was a lot of money to spend and I believe this type of work proves its-self over time, but all-in-all I think the install service went about as well as it could have. I would hire Will-Air again."

"Rob was extremely knowledgeable and anticipated the problem based on the call, picked up the part needed prior to arrival at our home so that he was completely prepared to fix our heater."

"I came home to discover that my air conditioning was not working, which sent me into an immediate panic because I had a baby who was going to be super cranky and I don't fare well sleeping without AC either. I sent out inquiries to several places and hoped for the best because I anticipated most HVAC companies would be slammed during the heatwave responding to similar calls. Fortunately, Sherry from Will-Air was prompt and courteous in replying to my dire request. She even texted me, because she didn't want to risk waking a baby with a phone call, and told me she could have a technician out the next day. The owner came out the next day and walked me through everything that was going on and was very professional. I was so impressed with their service that I've scheduled fall and spring maintenance with them."
