Whether or not you routinely replace filters or clean your HVAC system, your home also requires periodic air duct cleaning. Having your air ducts cleaned will result in better air quality, better energy efficiency, and will help to reduce dirt and dust buildups that will prevent your HVAC system from doing its job.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for air duct cleaning in your home, here are some helpful ways to know you need it!
- This may be an obvious one, but if you notice mold in your HVAC system, it is a dead giveaway that your air ducts are dirty and not circulating air properly. Mold is a clear sign that something is wrong and that your air ducts need to be cleaned.
- Rising Energy Bill. If your energy bill has increased recently, it can mean that your HVAC system is working harder than it needs to and isn’t able to heat or cool your home properly. Regular air duct cleaning can help prevent the rising cost of your energy bill.
- Extreme Dust. Is your house filled with dust no matter how often you clean? This is a sign that there is a serious build-up of dust and debris in your HVAC ducts. Reducing the dust in your home may be as simple as having your air ducts cleaned.
- Home Renovations. If you are renovating your home, it is a good idea to have your air ducts cleaned as soon as the renovation is over. The construction of your new kitchen or bathroom likely resulted in a build-up of dirt and debris that can be harmful to your HVAC system. Get your air ducts cleaned as soon as you can after the renovation to prevent any damage to your system.
