Do Your Air Ducts Need Cleaning? Here’s How to Know

For most people, their attitude towards their ductwork is out of sight, out of mind. However, be mindful of the following clues that indicate it’s time to give your ducts a thorough cleaning.

  • You see dust covering the registers and vent covers.
  • There is mold buildup in or around your HVAC unit.
  • The airflow between the rooms is inconsistent.
  • You hear strange sounds coming from the ducts.
  • You’ve had pests in the house, such as mice or other rodents that may have taken up residence in the ducts.

Although not all of the above signs mean your ductwork is dirty, it’s worth checking out. Call Home Squad, and we’ll inspect your ducts.

  • Do I Need an Earthquake Valve?
    Depending on where you live, you may be required to have an earthquake valve in place by law. However, even if it is not legally required, putting in an earthquake valve is still a good idea if you live in areas prone to this type of seismic activity. Home Squad Home Services and Repair has been installing these devices for our customers all around the Bothell, WA area for years. We would be happy to discuss your individual situation with you and help you determine whether or not an earthquake valve is a reasonable precaution for you to take.
  • What Are Earthquake Valves?
    Earthquake valves automatically shut off the gas supply to your home in the event that major seismic activity is detected in the area. When motion of a certain magnitude is present underground, a mechanism in the valve will be triggered and cut off all gas flow to your home. The action of an earthquake can cause damage to gas lines and pipes. Cutting off the gas can help prevent any fires or explosions caused by those damages, potentially saving your home. These fires and explosions are often more damaging than the actual earthquake.​
  • When is a Ductless Mini Split System a Better Choice?

    You’ve probably heard of a ductless mini split system but aren’t sure if one of these systems is right for your home. Well, sometimes these are actually the better choice and here’s why.

    The mini split system provides more flexible solutions as opposed to the standard HVAC. Heat pumps and central air systems force cold and hot air through ducts while mini split systems deliver air directly into the desired room, which makes it easier to get the precise temperature and requires less energy.

    Because ductless mini split systems don’t lose energy through improperly sealed ductwork, they operate more efficiently, which saves you money. Also, as mentioned, these units require less power to do the same job that an HVAC system does, which also increases your energy savings.

    Since HVAC systems and heat pumps force air through ductwork, it’s not uncommon for people to experience poor indoor air quality if the ductwork gets dirty. With a mini split system, you get the option of multi-stage filtration that drastically reduces the amount of allergens, particles, and dust that goes out into your home.

    Finally, if your home doesn’t have ductwork, or you’re living in an apartment, a ductless mini split system is easier and cheaper to install since you don’t have to worry about cutting holes for ducts.

  • What Should I Check Before Calling an HVAC Contractor?

    The warm summer nights here in Washington mean that residents’ air conditioners are working overtime to keep everyone cool and comfortable, and it’s bound to happen that some systems can’t handle the load and break down. If your system isn’t putting out the cold air you desire, or if it’s not firing up at all, here are a few troubleshooting tips to check before you call an AC contractor.

    If the air isn’t as cold as you desire, check that the air filter is clean and make sure there aren’t any obstructions near the outside compressor. Also, check for moisture as it may be a refrigerant leak.

    If the air isn’t blowing, check the thermostat and make sure it’s set a few degrees lower than the room temperature. Also, make sure the thermostat is set to ‘cooling mode’. Check to see if any circuit breakers have been tripped, and of course, make sure the air filter is clean.

    If you experience frequent on/off cycling or a system that won’t shut off, check and make sure an air register isn’t blowing directly on the thermostat, which can cause it to malfunction. Also check your refrigerant levels, and the air filter.

    If you notice ice on the system, it could be that dirty air filter that’s to blame, or check to see if the coils are dirty. Also inspect the vents for obstructions.

Benefits to Duct Sealing

Most residential HVAC systems leak through the ductwork, making your HVAC inefficient and costs you money in wasted energy bills. When you’re paying good money to heat and cool your home, you want to make sure you get the best bang for your buck. To ensure your system performs at its peak, consider these benefits to having your ducts sealed.

  • BETTER AIRFLOW - Leaking ducts prevent air from reaching the places in your home where you need it, which may leave the room too cold. Sealed ductwork improves the airflow to make your home more comfortable.
  • REDUCED ENERGY BILLS - Properly sealed ducts keep the conditioned air in your home where it belongs. The more conditioned air that stays in the house, the less hard your HVAC system has to work to do its job.
  • CLEANER EVAPORATOR COIL - Leaking ducts can bring the air from the crawlspace or attic into the HVAC system, causing dirt to build upon the evaporator coil. A wet, dirty evaporator coil attracts microbes, which can create a foul odor and are unhealthy to breathe.

To ensure that your ductwork is clean and your household air is healthy, contact Home Squad for all of your ductwork needs. In Bothell, call (425) 312-6767.
