Duct Cleaning Methods
Ducted air conditioning systems require regular cleaning to ensure optimal functioning and to maintain air quality. In Australia, the process for air conditioning systems usually begins with a thorough inspection to determine the extent of dirt, debris, and potential microbial growth.
After inspection, professionals use high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuum equipment to clean the ductwork meticulously. This is followed by the use of brushes and agitators to remove stubborn dirt. For deeply embedded grime, non-toxic sanitising agents approved by Australian standards may be used. Always choose a duct cleaning service that adheres to the AS/NZS 1668.2:2012 standards to ensure the best results.
Much like duct cleaning services, duct repairs are vital for the efficiency of air con systems. Over time, ductwork can deteriorate due to wear, rodent damage, or incorrect installation. Leaky or damaged ducts can lead to energy losses, reduced system performance, and uneven cooling or heating. Air filters may get clogged and require replacement.
In Australia, it's essential to select a professional with expertise in the AS/NZS 1668.2:2012 standards to ensure quality repairs. They will assess the ducts, identify issues, clean or replace your air filter, and employ the right techniques for sealing, reinforcing, or replacing affected sections. We can also conduct a carbon monoxide test to ensure your home and family are not at risk.
Proper duct repair ensures optimum air flow, energy efficiency, and the longevity of the cooling system itself.
