What Are Air Ducts?
An air duct is a type of pipe, tube or passage used in some types of air conditioning, heating and cooling systems to provide warm or cool air to an indoor area.
Air ducts take in all of the unwanted air from inside of your home, and at the same time pump warm or cool clean air back into your home, all while providing your house with ventilation. It's fair to say that air ducts are an important piece of equipment for your heating and cooling.
Air Duct Cleaning - Why Get It Done?
Have you heard about cleaning your air ducts but not sure why you would need it?
Air ducts are an integral part of your heating and cooling system. They breathe in all of the dust from inside of your home so you don't have to.
Due to this, it's unavoidable that dust entering the system will eventually settle within the ducts, building up over time.
As well as dust, air ducts can be the perfect breeding ground for dust mites and insects such as cockroaches, which means that when your heating and cooling is switched on it's likely that those nasties are dispersed into the air and into your home.
These harmful particles can lead to respiratory problems, particularly for people with allergies, causing asthma-like symptoms, or worse.
That's why at Jim's we recommend professional air duct cleaning every two to four years. This will help to manage air duct build-up so that your air conditioning can continue to provide your home or office with clean, breathable air, free from nasties.
Common Ducted Heating and Cooling Problems
If you have a ducted heating and cooling system you may have come across some obvious signs of dirt. There may be some not so obvious signs too. Whatever the problem, your air ducts are likely in need of a good cleaning. Request an inspection if any of the following common problems occur:
Noise - The build up of dust within air ducts and air filters can make it difficult for the system to circulate air correctly, causing air movement to become noisier.
Bad odour - Rotten and dirty smells coming from your ducts can be due to mould and mildew, animals and insects (not alive), gas leaks, and mechanical fires.
Stains - Marks and stains around air ducts and vents may be signs of a system malfunction, poor installation, condensation and dusty rooms due to various reasons including water build-up, lack of ventilation inside your house, dirt, animal fur, cigarette and candle smoke, and more.
Allergies - Symptoms such as sneezing, asthma, breathing difficulties and hay fever could all be reactions to dirt and dust build-up in your air ducts, recirculating the polluted air back into your home causing these allergic reactions.
If you're experiencing any of the above at home or business, it may be time for our duct cleaners to pay you a visit. Call Jim's today!

Importance of Heating Duct Cleaning
Come wintertime, we heavily rely on our ducted heating to keep the chills at bay. To keep your family healthy and running costs down, heating duct cleaning is more important than ever.
Having a heating duct cleaning service by a fully qualified air conditioning technician will ensure your filters are clean and there are no obstructions in your air ducts. This means your home will maintain high air quality, so those with allergies or asthma can worry less about their symptoms.
Then there are the energy savings you can make with heating duct cleaning. Air ducts with obstructions or clogged filters use more energy than clean air ducts, meaning you'll be paying more on your energy bill than you would if it was cleaned.
On top of that, components in your ducted heater will also have to work harder to do the job they once did with ease when clean. This means you'll be up for repairs earlier too!
While heating duct cleaning might be the bottom of your priority list, there is a lot of long-term health and monetary benefits you can gain. Jim's Air Conditioning have expert technicians who specialise in heating duct cleaning available 24/7 just for this purpose!
