When the rain is pattering on the roof and all your windows are closed tight, you want your home to stay cozy and fresh — not stuffy. If you are starting to notice dusty vent covers, musty smells, or worsening allergies symptoms, dirty ducts could be the culprit. Regular air duct cleaning can help keep your HVAC system in top shape so it provides you with clean, comfortable air all day and night.
Air duct cleaning can remove mold, allergens, dust buildup, and other pollutants from your HVAC system. But duct cleaning needs to be done properly. Otherwise, it can kick up dust and pollutants instead of removing them, so it’s important to hire a professional who knows how to get the job done right. In some cases, that involves cleaning all parts of your HVAC system, not just ducts. Plus, if an underlying problem made your ducts dirty in the first place, a professional can resolve the issue so it doesn’t happen again.
When dust and pollutants have built up in your ductwork, cleaning them out can have a big impact on your comfort level. It can even help your whole HVAC system run at peak performance.
Contaminants often spread through the air in homes and offices. They can potentially even cause issues like allergies, headaches, fatigue, and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. An air duct cleaning helps ensure the air you breathe is clean and healthy.
Duct cleaning can improve your system’s overall efficiency. Clean systems typically don’t need to use as much energy to maintain the ideal temperature in your home. The result is a win-win: a more comfortable environment and lower energy bills at the same time.
Pollens, pet dander, and other allergens can build up in your HVAC system — especially if it has been a while since you changed the filters. If someone in your home is experiencing allergy symptoms they can’t explain, it might be time to have an expert check your ducts.
If your indoor air is stale or smelly, you may already suspect you need professional air duct cleaning. There are a few other surprising signs to look for that could indicate buildup in your ducts:
