It’s cold and flu season, and keeping yourself and your family healthy means taking some basic precautions, such as maintaining household cleanliness, washing your hands, and covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze. But one thing that a lot of people don’t think about is their household air quality. Even if you maintain a clean home and change your air filters regularly, your ducts can collect a surprising amount of dust, pet hair, mold, fungi, and bacteria.

According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) you should have your household air ducts professionally cleaned every 3 to 5 years. In addition to lessening the impact of airborne allergens, clean ducts reduce household odors, and can help lower your energy costs. And if you’re looking for professional duct cleaning services in central Arkansas, DASH Heating & Cooling has the experience to . Here are a few of the services that we offer:

Air duct cleaning – There’s more to cleaning air ducts than simply deep cleaning ducts and removing accumulated dust particles and debris. Doing the job right also involves thoroughly cleaning your furnace or heat pump intakes and exhausts.

Ductwork repair – Over time, seals on ducts can separate, leading to a significant reduction in energy efficiency. While we’re cleaning your ductwork, we’ll also make sure that you have a tight seal on all connections, and repair any holes or damage that we find.

Heat pump and furnace inspection – Most units have an expected operational lifespan of 9-12 years, which can be shortened if they have to run longer to compensate for blockages or leaks. Keeping your ducts clean is an easy way to prolong the life of your unit, and we’ll also inspect your unit to help you anticipate future service needs.
