When to Schedule Duct Cleaning

Right now, this very minute while you look at a browser window, dust is gathering inside the ventilation system of your home. The air entering the return ducts draws in dust and dirt from your home, and it settles inside the sealed environment of the ducts, where it will begin to build up. Given enough time, this contamination will cause a drop in your indoor air quality and will put strain on your heating and cooling system.

To combat the problems of dirty ductwork, you need to schedule duct cleaning in Jacksonville, FL. Look no further than the technicians at J & W Heating and Air to provide you with the cleaning services you need.

Times when you should schedule duct cleaning:

  • When your ducts are extremely dirty: This sounds obvious… but how can you tell you have dirty ductwork? Go to one of the vents in your house (the ones located on the floor are easiest) and unscrew the grill from the front and take a look inside. If they are covered with dust and dirt—something like what you might see inside a full vacuum bag—then you definitely need duct cleaning.
  • When you notice an increase in allergy and flu-like symptoms: If your ductwork is lowering the quality of your indoor air, it will begin to cause conditions like dry and irritated skin, runny noses, headaches, nausea, and breathing problems. People with allergies will be especially susceptible, but you don’t need to have allergies to suffer from similar problems due to poor air quality.
  • Once a year: Annual duct cleaning is the best way to keep your ductwork in the cleanest condition. A year is enough time for a layer of dust to build-up along the interior of the ducts, and even if it isn’t yet affecting your indoor air quality, this contamination will start to restrict the flow of air and reduce the effectiveness of your air conditioner, furnace, or heat pump. Make professional duct cleaning a yearly habit.

Only professionals can truly clean your ducts

Duct cleaning is much more than pushing a broom through an open vent. Your ductwork system is extensive and much of it is out of your reach. You will need professionals with agitation equipment and power vacuums to perform the job. They can also inspect your ducts to see if you need other help, such as UV purifiers or filters.

In Jacksonville, FL duct cleaning specialists at J & W Heating and Air are ready to help you with cleaner air and a more efficient HVAC system. We offer not only duct cleaning but a variety of services to improve your indoor air quality.

I will be recommending J&W to my friends and family. They were very professional and on time. Did a very well job in... a quality manner. Dustin, Mark, and Robert. Worked very well together and was in and out with no cleanup for me to do. Thanks so much for getting my home back to a cool environment.read more

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 again.read 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 men.read 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
