It has been a rather wet winter this year here in New Orleans. Since you may not have been running your AC unit as much, mold may have collected in your ducts. Dirt, pet hair, and even spiders also may have moved into your ducts over the winter months. That is why right now, just before it gets hot again, is the perfect time to clean out your ducts and make sure they are ready for the hot summer months.
What You Need To Do
Before you start taking a closer look at your AC unit, make sure you turn its power off before getting started. Use the vacuum brush attachment to clean the floor grilles and wall duct registers. Then, unscrew the grills and hose out the visible interior of the ducts. Wash the grilles and registers with warm soapy water and let them air dry. Attach a dryer vent brush to the end of a cordless drill. Make sure it’s firmly attached before feeding it into the ducts because since you don’t want it to fall in. Don’t forget to clean the cold-air returns. If you clean your ducts yourself, you won’t get as deep into the system as a professional company. Experts suggest you should have your ducts cleaned at least once every two years. If you are not sure if your ducts are in good shape, contact the professionals at Air Conditioning Ambulance New Orleans.
