Scorching days are almost upon us in the Twin Cities, which means your air conditioner better be in tip-top shape! Though routine A/C cleaning doesn’t cross many homeowners’ minds, it plays an integral role in maintaining HVAC efficiency and high-quality indoor air.

At Dust Doctors, we know how important it is to maintain healthy indoor air quality, especially during summer, when many people beat the heat by spending time indoors. So how can you ensure your A/C is performing its best? We’re delving into the details below.

Consider Professional Duct Cleaning

Whether you realize it, your ductwork plays a major role in the efficiency of your HVAC system and the quality of your indoor air. Because your A/C system continually forces air through your ducts and into your home, your ductwork must be as clean as possible to achieve maximum A/C efficiency. When your ducts are dirty, dust, hair, pollen, and other particles circulate through the system, clogging the intake and return, and reducing cool airflow.

Worse, when your ducts contain significant buildup, forced air carries innumerable microscopic particles into your home’s ambient air. Unfortunately, simply spending time indoors forces you to inhale these health-harming particles, which can negatively affect your respiratory system and trigger indoor allergies.

So how do you mitigate the problem? With routine duct cleaning! At Dust Doctors, we recommend professional duct cleaning at two-year intervals, but if you own pets or have allergies, you may require annual cleaning. Professional duct cleaning ensures your ducts are free from all manner of buildup, which allows your A/C system to efficiently cool your home throughout the summer months.

Schedule Professional A/C Cleaning

Depending on the current state of your ductwork and the age of your outdoor A/C unit, sometimes, duct cleaning isn’t enough to maximize HVAC system efficiency. That’s where professional A/C cleaning comes in.

According to most A/C manufacturers, you should have your outdoor unit professionally cleaned at least once per year, but many homeowners fail to follow recommended cleaning schedules. Unfortunately, neglecting routine A/C cleaning leads to substantial debris accumulation within the condenser unit.

Over time, this buildup reduces system efficiency, increases your energy bills, and can even cause premature burnout. If you haven’t had your system cleaned in the last year, now is the time to schedule your appointment.

Maintain Your A/C With Routine Coil Cleaning

How does A/C coil cleaning differ from routine A/C cleaning services? Unlike routine A/C cleaning, the technician won’t address the outdoor condenser unit, only the system’s indoor coil.

Your A/C coil is the component that allows the refrigerant within the system to absorb heat from inside your home. When the coil becomes coated in dirt, dust, and other debris, your air conditioner cannot efficiently absorb and direct heat away from your home. Ultimately, you’ll have trouble keeping your house at a constant, comfortable temperature, and you’ll also notice rising energy costs. We recommend having your A/C coil cleaned at least once per year, perhaps more often if your system is reaching the end of its functional life.
