3 Signs You Should Have Your Ducts Cleaned

3 Signs You Should Have Your Ducts Cleaned

10509201_sThe HVAC system for your home is extremely important to the comfortability of your family. Having a warm home during the winter and a cool home during the summer can make all the difference between enjoying your time inside … and, not.

But, there are many things that need to be done to keep your HVAC system working well. Things like proper maintenance and filter changes. In addition, keeping the air ducts clean is a big part of keeping the system working well.

The duct system is the infrastructure of your HVAC system that pushes all of the air to the various rooms of your home. The vents are usually found in the floor or up near the ceiling. If a room does not have a vent in it, then the temperature in that room will be obviously higher or lower than the rest of the home.

A good way to avoid this and, to ensure that your HVAC system is working in top condition is to have your duct system cleaned on a regular basis. Some additional reasons you might want to schedule a maintenance and cleaning appointment for your HVAC system is:

  • You’ve never had it done. If you have never had the duct system of your home cleaned, you should call and schedule an appointment right away. The amount of dust and dirt that has accumulated could be making you and your family ill with allergies and dermatitis.
  • You or a member of your family has allergies. This time of year is especially difficult for those who have allergies. And, staying indoors is the only refuge to avoid pollen and allergens from outside. But, if your indoor air quality is low because of a dirty duct system – you could be avoiding the outdoors for no reason.
  • You have had a flooded basement in the past. If your basement has ever flooded or if it is very damp, you might have mold or mildew in your duct system. When you turn the air on, you are pushing mold and mildew spores all around your home.

The duct system is also the perfect place for dust and dirt to build-up. Or, worse, for insects, spiders, and small rodents to crawl around and live. When you turn the air or heat on in your home, it blows through the duct system and can carry any of the things in the system into the rooms of your home.
