How Do Air Ducts Get Dirty?
It’s very easy for contaminants to end up inside your HVAC system. The can fall through vents in the floor, and small particles can be sucked in along with circulating air. Everything from dust to mold, pet hair, pollen, and even garbage can end up inside your ductwork. Sometimes you’ll notice that your HVAC vents look dirty and dusty. If you want to see if your air ducts are dirty, you can conduct a simple visual inspection using a flashlight. Usually, you’ll be able to see a layer of dust on the inside of the vents. If you do, that’s a good sign that you’re probably due for a professional cleaning.
The Health Risks of Dirty Air Ducts
Having clean air ducts isn’t just about maintaining a clean appearance. Dirty air ducts can actually pose a significant health risk. The built-up contaminants don’t just stay inside your air ducts. Whenever you turn on your heat or air conditioning, they get circulated around your home or office. This means that you’ll be breathing in dirty air, even if you’re proactive about cleaning the other areas of your home or building. The constant exposure to dust, mold, and allergens is bad for your health and can increase your risk of sinus problems and respiratory infections. If you have a mysterious cough that seems to get worse whenever you’re inside, dirty air ducts may be the culprit. The contaminants can also lead to more severe symptoms for anyone who has asthma or allergies. Having your HVAC air ducts professionally cleaned, therefore, is an important step for keeping your family or your employees and customers healthy.
Lowering Your Energy Bill
Having your air ducts cleaned can also decrease your long-term utilities costs. When an HVAC system is clogged with contaminant build-up, it cannot run efficiently. This uses up more energy to provide heating and cooling. Thoroughly cleaning your ductwork enables your system to work efficiently again, which will lower your monthly energy bills. The cleaning also helps to keep your HVAC system working for longer.
