Your HVAC system distributes hot or cold air throughout your house via air ducts. Just like other components of your HVAC, air ducts require regular maintenance to ensure maximum efficiency and improve the air quality in your home.
Part of maintaining your air ducts involves cleaning them regularly. Over time, dirt, dust, allergens, hair, debris, mold, and pollutants can collect on the insides of these ducts.
This not only decreases the efficiency of your HVAC unit, but also contaminates the air in your home. However, many homeowners and business owners do not give much thought to their air ducts until their AC unit stops working, perhaps because the ductwork is out of sight.
As a rule of thumb, you should clean your air ducts every 3 to 5 years. However, the cleaning frequency depends on several factors, including location, climate, health conditions, and HVAC use. If you have pets, you may have to clean your air ducts more frequently.
Regularly cleaning your air ducts helps to optimize your HVAC’s performance, saves you money, and creates a cleaner living environment.
If you notice any of these signs, do not hesitate to call a professional HVAC company to help you clean your air ducts.
