If the air in your home has grown musty and filled with dust, it is time to get the ducts cleaned as soon as possible. Dust and debris can easily build up in the ducts of your home without anyone noticing it. It is extremely common for families to be breathing unclean air due to either forgetting or neglecting to get their air ducts regularly cleaned.
At 72 Degrees Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing, maintaining indoor air quality and cleaning ducts are our specialties. Our duct cleaning team cares about our customers and we want to make sure that you and your family have the highest standard of air quality in your home.
A few signs that you may be in need of duct cleaning include:
Your air filter is supposed to eliminate the dust, dirt, and debris that is sucked into your air intake vents, but they’re not perfect, and over time they become more susceptible to intrusion as they wear out. Contaminants that get through your air filter can get stuck to your heating and cooling coils or continue to circulate through your system, possibly getting stuck in your air vents. Accumulations of dust and other allergens can gradually continue to blow and circulate throughout your home, leading to poor air quality and symptoms like triggered allergies and asthma attacks.
Mold can grow in all sorts of different situations, but most often likes to settle in damp, dark places where it can easily make root and spread. Air ducts are an ideal place, especially during summer months when cool air is often blowing through your system. Some of the most dangerous types of mold will often take root and penetrate all the way through the surface of whatever they latch on to, making it visible from the outside. If a brief look at your ducts reveals mold, the inside is probably far worse than what you see, meaning you should contact a Fredericksburg duct cleaning service as soon as possible.
Ducts that have not been cleaned for some time are not nearly as proficient at allowing air to flow as ducts that are clean and clear of blockages. This means your air conditioner will become less effective and make it more expensive to cool your home. Your air conditioner will run longer in order to get to the temperature you desire, which will consume more energy, and give you a nasty case of sticker shock when your monthly utility bill arrives. Dirty ducts could also be hiding even more serious issues, such as holes, cracks, or collapsed sections which allow air leaks or further inhibit air flow.
Ducts accumulate fungi, mold, bugs, and bacteria, regardless of the type of unit you have in your home. If you and your family have pets, you may also have fur particles circulating and adding to your discomfort.
There are other pollutants in the environment which could be accumulating in your ducts, causing you to breathe unclean air. Having a HVAC service professional clean out your ducts can reduce your risk of developing respiratory issues or other common side effects.
If you would like to make sure that your ducts are being properly clean, our team would be happy to come out and ensure that the air you’re breathing is safe. Contact us at any time to ask questions or set up your first appointment.
