Although there are some aspects of your business’ air conditioning system that you can maintain yourself, one area that really requires professional attention is the ductwork. It’s something that many people neglect, but it’s actually one of the most important components of the whole HVAC system.

Read on to find out why you should have your ductwork professionally serviced every year.

Ductwork – what’s the problem?

The ductwork in your business premises forms the pathway from your heating and air conditioning systems to all the rooms in your building. It’s via this important pathway that fresh or warmed air is circulated. During the course of this process, particles of dust and debris can be sucked into the ductwork too where they can accumulate to form a thick coating on the duct walls.

Why have your ductwork professionally maintained?

Perhaps the most important reason for having your ductwork professionally cleaned is to improve the quality of the air that’s circulating in your premises. This is especially important if members of your workforce suffer from allergies caused by dust or pollen or if you run a business where animals are present, such as a veterinary clinic or a dog grooming parlour.

Improved HVAC system performance If there is a coating of dust and grime within the ductwork, friction can occur. This can compromise the circulation of air and often means that the air conditioning system doesn’t work properly. In cases where the ducting is heavily blocked by dirt, extra strain is placed on the mechanics of your air conditioning unit, and this can lead to breakdowns and expensive repair bills. When the ducts are cleaned properly, air can circulate more freely and your air conditioning system will run more smoothly. Reduced monthly power bills Although you might be reticent about spending money on routine duct cleaning, the outlay will save you money in the long term. When the ductwork is blocked, the fan in the air conditioning unit has to work much harder in order to keep your building cool, and this can result in higher energy bills. It’s very important that you use a firm of experienced, professional air conditioning contractors to carry out duct cleaning work, as their operatives will be fully trained and will have the right tools to carry out the job properly.

I can unconditionally recommend Inn-House Technology Ltd as a thoroughly excellent provider of all aspects of domestic air conditioning from initial contact, design development, through detailed site work to contract administration and on to maintenance. I speak as a hard-bitten Chartered Engineer and project manager who has probably seen it all; but Inn-House Technology has restored my faith that there is a British company which does it right to time, cost and quality. The initial site visit was by an experienced technician who has turned his hand to sales and was followed up by a further detailed visit with a staff specialist because the 4-unit multi-split installation is in a high-quality residence so that pipe concealment and silence in operation are crucial – and achieved. The two-man team left home at 0555 to arrive exactly on time for 3 consecutive days fully supplied with all the tools and plant required from their preferred but not exclusive partner supplier – Fujitsu. All indoor debris from numerous drillings was cleaned up as soon as it arose causing negligible dust- even embroidered curtains were kept in place. No shoes were worn indoors. The quality and fit of the pipework, cabling and trunking was exemplary and the indoor units were positioned exactly as specified. Outside, the wall penetrations and resealing of this Passivhaus were accurate and the heat pump connections neatly concealed by a black trunking beside a downpipe. The two installers, Jim and Sam, were professional, knowledgeable, personable, strong, agile and 100% committed to my job – not once stopping for lunch. The back-office handling of the sales, contract, procurement, invoicing and maintenance were each impeccable and the team are clearly loyal to their company which has strong systems to give quick response and confidence to the customer. The whole installation experience was an exemplar of how to run a company well and I have no hesitation at all in recommending Inn-House Technology.

Excellent and Faultless Experience with our Air Con Install. We reached out to I-HT among other Installers in the area, within a couple of hours they had made contact and arranged to visit to provide a quote within the same day. The quote was sent quickly and competitively priced. Lee who visited was very friendly and helpful and provided a good insight into what could be done and how with regards to our property. On install day we had 2 of their team pop out to complete the install and I can't explain enough how polite, friendly and considerate they were. Not only this but they were also very tidy and cleaned up behind them at every step. The day after I also had a follow up call from the office to make sure we were happy. overall 10/10 and can't believe how simple and perfect the install went. Thank you so much and look forward to recommending them to everyone in the future!
