When was the last time you got your air ducts cleaned? It’s not really something most homeowners often think about. You can’t see ductwork. Plus your air is cool in summer and warm it winter, so it may not even cross your mind that your air ducts needs to be cleaned, but they do. It is definitely something you don’t want to forget to do as dirty air ducts aggravate allergies, exacerbate breathing problems, filter dust throughout your home and make your HVAC system work harder. King Ray Air Duct Cleaning outlines some of the tell-tale signs you need to get your air ducts cleaned below.
Dirty Air Ducts Causes Excessive Dust in House
Living in Florida’s Gulf Coast, you are bound to get dust in your house. With the wind and the dirt, dust will inevitably end up in your home. But if you are noticing that your house is even more dusty than usual and the weather hasn’t changed much, then you might just want to consider that your air ducts need to be cleaned. With all the dust entering your home, it can get your air ducts dirty quickly, and unfortunately your HVAC system just recirculates it through the air vents into your home in an endless dusty cycle.
Can Dirty Ductwork Cause a High Electric Bill?
When your air ducts are dirty or clogged, your system has to work extra hard to cool down your home in summer and warm it in winter because the air can’t get through as easily. If your air conditioner and furnace have to work too hard, then your energy bill will be higher. If you get your air ducts cleaned, you will not only extend the life of your HVAC equipment but you should see your energy bills go down too.
Health Problems Caused by Dirty Air Ducts & Vents
If you are noticing you are always feeling like your allergies are acting up or you have a cold, it could be because you need to clean your air ducts. Having dirty air ducts can cause coughing, sneezing, headaches, sore throat, running nose and even a low grade fever. These are not fun symptoms to have, especially on a long term basis. If you are noticing that this is happening to you or your loved ones more often, then get your air ducts cleaned and see what a difference it can make!
Can Dirty Air Ducts Cause Mold?
Dirty air ducts not only cause health problems and make your house dustier, it can cause mold and mildew to grow as well. When this happens you may be able to smell that something musty in the air when your air conditioner or heater turns on. You don’t want to be breathing in mold because that can also make you sick and you most likely also don’t want to have an unpleasant smell throughout your home. Get your air ducts cleaned to get rid of that mold and smell.
Noise in Ventilation Ducts
Have you been hearing strange noises when your air or heat turns on? You have probably been living in your house long enough to know that some sounds aren’t normal when the air starts. Odd noises could be caused by blocked air filters as well as dust and debris resulting in the air ducts needing to be cleaned.
