What’s Lurking in your Ducts?

You spend the whole day cleaning, and you’re finally done; you vacuumed the rugs, wiped the countertops, and scrubbed the shower… everything that the eye can see has been cleaned! But, what about the inner workings of your home that aren’t so easily seen? 🤔

Air ducts are tubes that connect your HVAC system with air vents that push hot or cool air throughout your home, keeping you comfortable all year long. When your air ducts are clean, your HVAC system can run smoothly & efficiently, improving indoor air quality and cutting down wasted energy and high utility bills. When your air ducts are dirty, they can host mold, mildew, insects, dust… the list goes on.

What could be lurking in my ducts?! 

Here are possible signs of mold growth within your home’s HVAC ducts:

  • A musty or mildew-like smell throughout the house when your system is on
  • Coughing and sneezing when you turn on the AC or come inside
  • Runny nose, rashes, and watering eyes
  • Headaches that ease when outside
  • Nausea, fatigue, and dizziness when at home
  • Mold outside of the air handler, on the outside of ductwork, or drip pans

Umm, gross!

What does it mean to have my ducts cleaned?

If you or your family members are experiencing any of the symptoms above, having your air ducts professionally cleaned could be in your best interest. With a Duct Cleaning Service by Shipley Energy, our experts will –

  • Ease the severity of allergic reactions within your home 
  • Reduce the build-up of mildew, most, & dust in your ductwork
  • Improve the efficiency of your heating, air conditioning, and ventilation equipment

We implement a highly effective & safe process for cleaning your ductwork. Our experts will begin by testing your heating/cooling system to ensure peak operating conditions. We’ll then use technologically advanced high-efficiency particle air (HEPA) vacuuming equipment to clean the heating unit, evaporator coil, blower, and vent covers. Next, we’ll connect the vacuum to the main trunk line to collect deeply embedded dirt and debris. We’ll also use various agitation tools to dislodge clogs. Upon completion, we’ll conduct a final inspection to ensure all dirt and debris have been removed.

If you notice mold growing on hard surfaces inside the ducts or other heating/cooling system components, you should have them cleaned as quickly as possible to prevent the mold from spreading to other areas of your home.

We offer two ways to schedule your duct cleaning service – online or by phone! Call us at 717-308-9540 or submit your information above – we will reach out to you!
