What’s In Your Ducts?

From allergens to pet dander to viruses, bacteria, pollen, and mold, various contaminants can be lingering in your ductwork. This can be especially problematic for those who suffer from spring or fall allergies.

The ducts are the network of pathways that move the air from the AC unit to the rooms throughout your home. They’re responsible for keeping the air flowing and circulating, so it’s important to ensure they’re regularly cleaned. 

When ducts are not cleaned, dirt, allergens, and other contaminants can keep circulating throughout your home, negatively impacting your health. Ducts that are not properly maintained can cause allergic reactions, breathing problems, and aggravate chronic conditions like asthma.

When Should You Have Your Ducts Cleaned?

Much like maintaining other parts of your HVAC system, ductwork should be cleaned and inspected to ensure everything is working properly. A good rule of thumb is every 2-5 years, depending on various factors. If something isn’t functioning how it should, regular maintenance visits allow you to catch and treat any problems early before they can cause more damage. 

If you’ve just moved into a new place or are not quite sure if you should have your ductwork cleaned, here are some telltale signs that it’s time:

Your Home Is Always Dusty

Have you ever noticed after deep cleaning your entire place, there seems to be a fresh layer of dust that has already settled by the next day?

A perpetually dusty environment is a big sign that your ducts could use a good cleaning. If your ducts are filled with dirt and dust, those particles are being moved around by circulating air and getting carried through the ducts and out through the vents into various rooms in your home.

Your Allergies are Getting Worse

Has it been a few years since your air duct system has been cleaned? It might be time to schedule a cleaning.

When humidity is too low, it can cause dry skin and nose bleeds, but when humidity is too high, it creates a breeding group for mold, mildew, and dust mites. All of these can make allergies worse and aggravate other respiratory conditions like asthma.

More frequent appointments should be made for those who have asthma and other respiratory problems.

Your Utility Bills are Increasing

If you’re living in the same place, your utility bills from year to year should stay about the same. But if you notice that yours have been steadily increasing without your usage habits changing, it could be your ducts. 

Ducts can become so dirty and built up that the air from your HVAC system has trouble passing through them. As a result, the AC system has to use much more energy to cool your home to the desired temperature.
