Professional vs. DIY Air Duct Cleaning

There is often a lot of contemplation on the part of homeowners as to whether or not they should try to clean air ducts on their own. Is it truly a DIY task to go forward with air duct cleaning, or it something that should be left up to professionals? A decision like this can be hard to make without considering everything that surrounds the job at hand. Our team of professionals at J&W Heating and Air, one of the premier air conditioning companies Jacksonville homeowners rely on, is here to shed light on the topic.


The DIY Approach


There is something to be said for taking the approach of doing the air duct cleaning on your own. You may feel confident in your abilities to get the job done in cleaning the air ducts thoroughly. When you search online, you will find a lot of step-by-step instructions out there regarding what you should do and what to look out for.  


It is a whole different ballgame, though, between reading directions online and executing the job properly. Sure, you can certainly go forward with cleaning air ducts by yourself, without the assistance of a professional, but some risks will come with that.


Did You Adequately Clean?


The question is always going to about whether or not you properly cleaned the air ducts. Did you do enough to get all of the dust out of them as was needed? How did you do regarding looking for mold inside of the air ducts?  If mold did exist, do you think you would be able to detect it? There are some things that professionals simply are trained for years on learning what and how to deal with air ducts.  


We at J&W Heating and Air have seen it all from an air duct cleaning perspective. It is more than just taking a vacuum, cleaning the registers, and sucking up as much dust as you can in the ducts. You want to be sure the air ducts are being inspected as well so that they are well taken care of and continue to function as you would expect them to.

We are going to be able to help you watch out for mold and be ready to address problems should they arise.

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
