Cut Your Utility Costs
Excessive buildup of dirt in your air ducts has proven to obstruct airflow in and out of your home. In turn, it puts pressure on the HVAC system causing it to use more energy to function efficiently. The extra pressure eventually leads to increased utility bills and a shortened lifespan for your HVAC system. That is why regular air duct cleaning is important.
Dust Coming Out of Your Vents
Failure to clean your air ducts in a long time will result in dust and debris buildup. Pet fur, for example, can quickly collect in air ducts. In the long run, excessive debris buildup will compromise your HVAC system’s performance, polluting the air in your home. While filters can capture some of the dust, small particles can still pass through. With that in mind, if you have pets or you notice dust coming out of the vents, consider having your air ducts cleaned.
Mold Growth in the Ducts
Accumulation of mold within the ducts can be dangerous to your health. To avoid breathing mold spores every day, consider getting your air ducts cleaned. However, to completely rid of mold, remember to change the conditions that initially caused mold growth.
Suffering From Allergies
Air ducts and vents have spaces that facilitate the accumulation of dust, bacteria, mites and all other nasty allergens. The circulation of dust around the house only exacerbates the symptoms, especially during the warmer months when allergies are particularly severe. That is why having your air ducts cleaned in the summer can significantly improve the air quality and reduce any allergy symptoms.
Infestation of Ducts by Vermin
Before and during the cold season, vermin such as insects, rodents and other small animals seek warmth and shelter in your duct system. In the process, they leave behind droppings which can negatively affect the air quality in your home. Professional cleaning of your ducts will eliminate any pests that have been invading your space.
