Spring is here, and warm weather won’t be far behind it. You want your AC unit ready for those long, hot summer days, and one thing to consider to ensure it can operate efficiently is having the air ducts cleaned.
Throughout the seasons, your heating system is going, or your air conditioning unit is running. Both of these operations cause your air ducts to fill up with foreign material, such as dust, pollen, or other debris. If you are wondering if it’s time to clean out your ducts, here are some of the most common signs.
Clogged With Debris
When you turn your HVAC system on and you see particles floating in the air in front of your vents, there is a good chance that your ducts and vents have debris in them. You will want to get them cleaned so that you have good air quality in your home.
Air Filters Are Clogged
Your air filters should be cleaned out every few months, but if you are continuously having to change them, this is a good indication that there is a bigger problem. Your ducts are likely clogged and need a deeper cleaning.
Mold and Mildew
If you see mold or mildew around your vents, you need to have your ducts cleaned out immediately. Mildew can cause allergies to flare up, and mold exposure can lead to a variety of serious health issues. Once mold and mildew are spotted, it’s also suggested that you purchase a home dehumidifier to help dry up any moisture.
If you have poor air flow throughout your house, it’s an indication that your ducts are clogged and need to be cleaned out. Air quality should be consistent and even, and if yours isn’t, a cleaning needs to take place.
