Will Cleaning My Air Ducts Solve My No-Cooling Problem?
During the hot weather or “air conditioning season” as we call it, we often get enquiries related to problems such as not enough cooling. Sometimes the problem is throughout the entire home but usually the problem is that there is just not enough cooling getting to the top floor.
The most common question we hear is, will cleaning my air ducts solve this problem? Call any number of air duct cleaning companies and most people will tell you that it definitely will. But the truth is that cleaning your air duct system for this reason only is kind of hit-or-miss. It may solve the problem or it may not. Before you decide to have your ducts cleaned for this reason, check your air filter. If that’s all the problem is, then you can fix that yourself. A dirty air filter can quite easily reduce the airflow to the point that you get little or no cooling, or no heating in the winter.
It is always a good idea to clean your ducts every few years anyway, whether you are currently experiencing any problem or not, but cleaning your duct system because of poor cooling only is not necessarily the only answer.
