We built our house 3 years ago and my wife, who is sensitive to sheetrock dust, thinks we should have all of the air ducts cleaned out. While I’m not sure this will really help, she claims that her allergies kick up whenever the heater goes on. Who am I to argue.
I have never cleaned out air ducts before… even in houses that I have built in the past. I assume they use some kind of vacuum device to suck out whatever is in your air ducts.
A few questions:
Has anyone bothered to have all of the air ducts cleaned out and did it help with a dust issue they were having?
The estimate we got for our 4,000 sf house is around $400. Does that sound reasonable?
Is this usually a one time thing or are you suppose to clean out your ducts on a regular basis?
I should mention that we live in Northwest Montana so our windows are shut tight from about November through April.
Any past experiences would be greatly appreciated!
