Duct Cleaning - Cousins AirCousins Air

Duct Cleaning

AC_DuctLike any sensitive, sophisticated machine, air conditioning units must be serviced from time to time. For window and portable units, changing the filters and cleaning the inside coils before periods of heavy usage should suffice. But if you have a ducted central heating/cooling system like most homeowners, you need to call an air conditioner professional. Why?

In addition to cleaning coils, changing filters, and checking your outdoor condenser unit, a NATE certified technician will also examine your ductwork. This hidden network of conduits helps move hot and cool air throughout your home more quickly and efficiently than any other modern method. But when it moves that air, it can also take dirt, dust, pollen, and other undesirables with it. This can make turning on your heat or air potentially dangerous for people with allergies and respiratory issues.

Improve Air Quality

Metal air ducts are magnets for dirt, dust, pet hair, dander, and debris, whether they’re running or not. Pollutants and particles that make their way into the system often get trapped there, where they accumulate over time. When they finally find their way out of the vents and into your abode, these contaminants can make the air your family breathes unsafe. The only way to end the vicious cycle is to go to the source—the ducts!

When completed by an AC professional, cleaning your air ducts should remove most of the contaminants that build up in the system and get caught on the inside. It may also help you save money in the process. How?

Improve AC Efficiency

When ducts get really dirty, they can cause blockages that inhibit airflow, which makes your entire AC system work harder to keep you comfortable. The result? Higher utility bills and a much greater risk of premature wear on vital parts and components. A professional cleaning helps improve overall airflow, which will keep your system running as it should.

Preventative Maintenance

When an AC system has a serious leak, it can lose up to 30 percent of the energy it uses. Depending on the size of your home and your energy usage, a small leak could add hundreds of dollars to your utility bills in a single season. Unfortunately, most homeowners have no idea what’s causing costs to escalate at an alarming rate until they’ve already thrown that money out the window… literally! You can prevent this waste by simply scheduling a professional duct cleaning today.

Why Call Us?

With year-round warm weather, residents of South Florida expect and demand more of their AC systems compared to the rest of the country. Many of them use their air on a nearly continuous basis during the scorching summer months. As a result, these units require more maintenance than those that are used less frequently. Unfortunately, many homeowners either ignore or forget to schedule annual maintenance appointments until it’s too late.

Here at Cousins Air, Inc., we’ve seen countless cases of AC damage that could have easily been avoided had we been called. In addition to checking all major parts and components for signs of damage and wear, our service professionals will clean your ductwork from top to bottom. And if they happen to find a leak, they will seal it up to prevent any further energy drain. Additionally, sealing leaks also helps prevent pollutants and other contaminants from being released in huge quantities into open indoor spaces.


John - just wanted you to know about the installation of my new air conditioner yesterday. Your installers Alex & David showed up on time (a feat for contractors), removed my existing equipment, prepared the house for the new installation, and then installed the new equipment. They were efficient, personable (another feat for contractors) and completed the job on time (need I say more). I've been with Cousins through two houses over about 13 years and I've never been disappointed. So kudos to your firm and the people who you employ. I'd be remiss if i didn't comment about Joe...

Owners usually only hear from their customers when there is a complaint. However this is a “complement" about your company and some of your associates……….My wife,Theresa, and I, wanted to let you know your installation team of Kohrie, Alex, Rob, and Omar did an outstanding job installing our new air conditioners. They were professional, polite, neat and clean. It was a big job as far as we were concerned, with short notice and tight attic space, but they put me and my wife at ease immediately. When finished everything was neat and clean with the new air conditioners working [READ MORE]

We woke up Saturday morning and the house was hot. No air, no circulation via the fan . . . nada. Who passed the law that your a/c unit can only break during the hottest part of the summer AND on a weekend? As our previous a/c guy has now retired, we were at a loss as to who to contact. Fortunately, we have a good friend "in the business" (wholesale side) and he told us that Cousins was (by far) the people we wanted to deal with. A technician (Thomas) came out later that day (he called several times during the day to make sure we knew what [READ MORE]

I have nothing but good things to say about Cousins. We had so many problems with both our AC units in our new home and Cousins came to our rescue every time. We hired them after trying to get ******* (the company who installed the units to fix our AC). ******* gave us such a run-around, wrong information, and no call backs (even when Carrier called them on my behalf). We lost days without AC because of *******'s incompetence. Cousin’s was efficient, reliable and their techs knew their stuff. They came to fix my AC even before [READ MORE]

-Chart C.

Thank you so very much for sending your team out to evaluate our broken air conditioning system.Furthermore, thank you for the thoughtful presentation of options for replacing the system.Three choices were explained, and after input based upon your many years of experience, we confidently selected the Carrier 17 SEER, 4 Ton, two-stage system. Installation was professionally done by two installers and two separate supervisors stopped by to make sure everything was installed correctly.So far so good, and so quiet. We will monitor [READ MORE]
