Why Get a Furnace Tune-Up?If you don’t know this already, regular maintenance for your heating units is very important. The people who don’t realize this are often those whose systems unexpectedly break down, leaving them without any heating during some of the most uncomfortable times of year. For the small amount of money it costs to schedule a professional tune-up, the return on your investment can be huge. Besides helping avoid unexpected breakdowns, tune-ups are important for helping your unit recover lost efficiency, operate more safely, increase the overall lifespan of the unit, improve your overall level of comfort, and reduce your operating expenses. Ideally your heating system should be inspected at least once a year.

Lubrication of all moving parts to eliminate friction and wear that can increase your energy costs. A full calibration of your thermostat to verify proper operation. An inspection of the duct work for possible energy loss. Tightening and inspection of all the electrical connections to verify safe system operation. Evaluate performance of the blower motor and the condition of the blower belt. These are just a few of the standard checks that should be performed by a reliable HVAC technician.

How Does Anderson Mechanical Do Air Duct Cleanings?Our technicians will come into the home. The tech will go to the furnace room. Once in the furnace room the tech will make an 6 inch opening for the vacuum hose to be connected and create negative air Flow inside the trunk line/system. We do have sheet metal plates to cover this opening that can be reused in the future. We do make a few 1 inch openings (covered with 1 inch cap plugs) for the air snake to enter the trunk line and sweep the surface of the trunk line and force the dust/small debris to our vacuum bag located out side the home. But not until after each vent is completed. If existing openings are present upon arrival we do use the exiting openings. Once the openings are made or opened, and the vacuum is in use, we will use 175-200 lbs of air pressure to force/loosen dust/small debris from each individual heat or return vent and push to the trunk line that the vents are connected to. We use a 1 inch air hose that will go throughout the home to each individual vent (heat and returns). Once the dust/small debris is in the trunk line, we use reverse air pressure to push the dust/small debris the where the Vacuum hose is located. When entering the vacuum hose all dust/debris is going to a 8 foot dust bag behind/attached to our vehicle. We clean the registers/grilles and the inside of each return and supply opening using a van-mounted vacuum along with specialized air tools. Using an assortment of air tools, we clean your entire air duct system, including air filter (depending on style). When cleaning is complete, we put everything back together again and clean up our work area.
How Does Pricing For Air Ducts Work?Call Us For Pricing Air Duct Cleaning is Priced By 2500 sq feet or less, 3200 Square Feet Or Less, 4000 Square Feet Or Less, 4400 Square Feet Or less. We Do Not Count Number Of Vents Or Trunk lines
What are the Benefits of Duct Cleaning?Your furnace and duct-work serve as your home's respiratory system, pulling air from inside your home through the return ducts, where the air moves through the filter into the furnace to be heated before passing through the supply ducts and back into your living space. Dust, pet dander, debris, pathogens, allergens, chemicals, dust mites—all of these contaminants become trapped inside your air ducts over time, and as the air moves through the system, it passes through these dirty ducts, redistributing the dirt throughout your home or simply depositing it in the ducts where it builds up over time. Air duct cleaning can dramatically reduce the number of contaminants present in your home's indoor air. Cleaning the air ducts in your home increases air flow within the system, helping to improve the efficiency of the heating system by distributing air throughout the house more quickly and with less effort. Regular cleaning of the air ducts also minimizes dust and debris entering the furnace, thereby helping to prevent clogging of the unit.
How Do I Prepare My Home Before You Arrive?Help us work quickly and efficiently by taking care of a few things prior to our arrival. We need a place to park our van close to your home so that our equipment can reach your furnace room. We require room to work around the furnace so it needs to be free from clutter. Every vent in the home must be accessible. If we need to move furniture, we will move and move back. If you have animals in the home that may exit without permission, please contain them in an area of your choice, for we will have an entrance open about 6 Inches for our equipment to enter. If you are not concerned about them exiting the home, they may stay where ever they feel comfortable.
