Air Duct Cleaning
When it comes to adding an extra layer of comfort in your Mississippi home or business, start with your air ducts.
Properly maintained air ducts improve your indoor air quality (IAQ) and allow your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment to run more efficiently. In many ways, your ductwork is like a superhighway delivering fresh air to every room in your Picayune home—clean ducts help keep the traffic moving!
At Mike's Heating & A/C Service, our team specializes in duct cleaning and repairs—along with a wide variety of other HVAC services. Since opening our doors in 2000, we have proudly served families and businesses throughout the Picayune area. Your health and comfort is our top priority.
Why Clean Your Air Ducts?
The ducts in your home are a hidden network of tubes traveling to almost every part of your home. Left unchecked, contaminants such as debris, dust mites, pet dander, and pollen will infiltrate the ductwork until the blowing air from your HVAC system carries them into your rooms.
Eventually, your ductwork will develop small tears and leaks that lead to energy loss. The average air duct system loses 25 to 40 percent of the heating or cooling energy created by your furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner, according to the US Department of Energy. That can add hundreds of dollars to your utility costs over time.
How Duct Cleaning Works
To start the process, our professionals will assess your ductwork and go over the work with you before we begin. We only use industry-approved vacuums, blowers, and other tools to clean the air ducts in your Picayune, MS home or business. Our team has the training and expertise to clean your air ducts with minimal disruption to the surrounding areas, no matter what type of ductwork you have in your home or business.
This is not a service you want to attempt on your own. Without any experience, you will likely kick up the dust in the ductwork and allow it to circulate throughout your rooms with ease.
How Often Should You Clean Your Ducts?
Schedule air duct cleaning every few years to keep your HVAC system operating at peak efficiency. Your heating and cooling equipment is a significant expense, so it just makes sense to maintain it.
There are some exceptions to have it done more often:
- Rising utility bills that could indicate leaks in the system
- Remodeling your home recently that may have created dust which settles into your system
- Seeing evidence of mold or animal infestation in your air ducts, which requires a professional inspection by our team
Heating and cooling costs typically account for nearly half your utility bill. The quicker you address these issues, the more money you save over the long run.
Repairs and Maintenance
It is always easier to address an issue early with your HVAC equipment rather than allow it to grow and possibly cause problems with other areas. At Mike's Heating & A/C Service, we promise never to replace a part unless it is necessary or we can demonstrate significant cost savings. We understand that every home or business operates on a different timetable—you can count on us to work around your schedule. If you need us for an emergency on the weekends or holidays, we will be there.
Our company offers an assortment of maintenance plans tailored to fit your budget and needs. Scheduling tune-ups and inspections extend the service life of your HVAC system and allow you to get the most value from it. We do everything possible to ensure you get the best return on your investment.
