Duct Work in Rhode Island
Ensuring Your Air Moves Efficiently
Keeping Your Air Moving Easily
Ductwork is an important feature in your home that you probably never see, especially if your basement is finished. That is the point: ductwork is supposed to remain unseen, doing its job of transporting your heated and cooled air throughout your home. However, just because it's not seen doesn't mean you can ignore it. Ductwork requires regular cleanings in order to promote clean air in your home and ensure your HVAC system is running smoothly and efficiently. Atlantis Comfort Systems offers residential and commercial ductwork installation and cleaning services to keep your ductwork in tip-top shape. Call our HVAC company to get started today!

WHAT IS DUCTWORK?
HVAC ductwork is the flexible, oval, round or rectangular metal, plastic, or fiberglass structures that hang out near your ceilings in your home or commercial building. Their job is to transport air throughout your home or office, keeping you comfortable no matter the weather outside. Since all of the air that has been conditioned (either by your air conditioner or your furnace) moves through your duct work, it's super important that your ductwork is in tip-top shape, meaning there are no leaks or dirt in your system that can cause inefficiencies. Do note that ductwork only carries air. Water and gas in your home are usually transported through pipes.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DUCTWORK
To ensure your optimal comfort. While your air conditioner and furnace cool and heat air respectively, if there is no way to move that air, it's in essence wasting its time. Ductwork transports your air, and when there are leaks or clogs, that air can't move as well. This means your residential or commercial HVAC system will have to work harder to heat or cool your home. This can lead to an increase in utility bills, and it can shorten the lifespan of your HVAC system considerably.
To ensure excellent air quality. Since your ductwork is moving all of the air inside your home, it's important to keep your ductwork clean so that you are not breathing in pollutants, contaminants, allergens, and other substances that air carries. These bits can accumulate quite easily in your ductwork, so regular cleanings are a must to ensure fresh, clean air in your home or office.
To keep your home or office clean. Since dust and dirt can be borne by air, they can quite easily get caught up in your HVAC ductwork. When they do, this dust and dirt can then be blown throughout your home and be deposited on surfaces throughout, making for unsightly areas as well as extra work.
To save on costs. Atlantis Comfort Systems recommends regular inspections of your Rhode Island residential or commercial ductwork in order to find any leaks, kinks, or damaged air ducts, such as from insects or rodents, that can cause your heating and cooling bill to go up. When air escapes from your HVAC system and is not going where you wish it to go, you are conditioning an area that probably doesn't need it. Your HVAC system will run longer, costing you money that could be used for other more important things, such as coffee with friends or more inventory in your business.
THE BENEFITS OF DUCTWORK CLEANING
Helps keep allergy symptoms down. If you have allergies, you know that any type of dust, pollen, pet dander, dirt, and other contaminants can exacerbate your condition. By keeping your air ducts clean, you will be able to better keep your allergy symptoms under control. Atlantis Comfort Systems recommends that you invest in professional air duct cleaning at least once a year to ensure your ductwork is clear.
Gets rid of critters. You'd be surprised how resilient critters are once they find a good spot to live. Your residential or commercial air ducts are the perfect place for critters to make their home, most notably rodents. Rodents leave droppings that can be harmful to humans. In addition, insects love your air ducts as well. However, since their lifespan is extremely short, they can build up quickly once they die. Having your ductwork cleaned will ensure you are preventing sinus issues, rashes, and other problems.
Removes smells. Your home or office can collect smells as easily as you collect junk mail. While adding in an air freshener, a scented candle, or incense helps, these are only temporary solutions. By investing in air duct cleaning by Atlantis Comfort Systems, you'll eliminate the stale, disagreeable smells, such as cooking smells, cigarette smoke, mold, and more and replace it with an inviting, warm smell instead.
Prolongs the life of your HVAC system. Your HVAC system works incredibly hard to condition your air to make you comfortable. Dust and contaminants can build up at a surprising rate, which block air flow in your system and cause your HVAC system to work harder. This raises your energy bills and creates wear and tear on your HVAC system. The longer your HVAC system works at this level, the more likely you may need a costly repair. HVAC air duct cleanings are affordable and easy ways to ensure the health of your heating and air system, prolonging its lifespan, and save you costs over the long run.
