A clean ductwork allows the distribution of hot or cold air throughout your house. Your supply ducts deliver the conditioned air, while the return ducts gather the air back to the furnace or air conditioning system. Have you been keeping it cleaned?
Despite changing filters regularly, your Home’s HVAC system becomes filthy with frequent usage, and your air ducts are a popular hiding spot for dust, grime, and allergies.
The toxins and air pollutants like dust and grime may not only damage your indoor air quality, but also make your system work harder.
Condensation in your heating and cooling system may lead to mold development in your ducting. Mold may be visible around your vent covers. Still, many parts of your HVAC system can be hard to reach, making a mold in your air ducts particularly difficult to detect visually. On the other hand, mold may be difficult to detect, although it typically has a musty stench.
Is your house always dusty, regardless of how frequently you clean it? While dusting isn’t a very pleasurable job, it’s one that we all have to do from time to time. You should get your ducts cleaned if you find that every flat surface in your house is covered with dust very soon after you’ve put away your cleaning tools!
Mice, squirrels, and insects may get into your air ducts from time to time. These rodents, of course, leave behind a slew of germs. For example, when rats get into your ductwork, they build nests and leave droppings, spreading microscopic fecal spores throughout the system. These spores may then find their way into your house, contaminating the air you breathe.
Construction is messy. Dust and debris will always make their way in, even if contractors are careful about cleaning up and sealing off work areas to keep the rest of the site neat.
Furthermore, that dirt and dust will almost definitely find their way into your ductwork unless the HVAC system is shut off and maintained fully covered during the building period (which isn’t feasible for most homes).
When ductwork becomes too filthy, air cannot move freely and effectively through your Home’s HVAC system. As a result, both your furnace and air conditioner will have to work harder to maintain a reasonable temperature when this occurs. In addition, you and your family may face higher utility costs due to this increased energy use.
