Do you use a forced air heating or cooling system in your home, such as a furnace, a heat pump, or a central air conditioner? If so, then you are dependent upon that system’s ductwork in order to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. For this reason, you really need to know that your air ducts are in fine working condition. What you may not realize, though, is that ensuring that your ducts are not damaged or leaking is not the only concern that you should have.
Dirty ductwork is a serious problem that many homeowners face, made all the more problematic by the fact that many homeowners fail to realize that they are even facing this problem to begin with! Fortunately for you, our Mount Vernon, WA duct cleaning professionals are here to help. We’ve got some tips to help you recognize the warning signs of dirty ductwork, and we offer exceptional duct cleaning services to guarantee that your air ducts are in the great condition that you deserve.
Signs of Dirty Ductwork
If you think that dirty ductwork is no big deal just because you don’t have to look at the mess within it, think again! As you’ll see below, there are a number of ways in which dirty ductwork will start to negatively affect your comfort, your indoor air quality, and your HVAC system itself. Contact us the moment that you notice any of these warning signs of dirty air ducts in your home.
- Increased levels of airborne pollutants.
- Increased heating/cooling costs.
- Dirty air filters more frequently than normal.
- Aggravated allergy/asthma symptoms.
- Low airflow.
- Dusty/dirty vents.
The Benefits of Duct Cleaning Are too Good to Ignore!
You cannot just clean your air ducts on your own. Ductwork is often difficult to access, meaning that you could damage your property even when simply trying to access them. Should you be able to do so successfully, however, there is no way that you can do a thorough job of cleaning your ducts with household equipment. We’ll clean your ducts exceptionally well for longlasting results, including the following benefits.
- Reduced heating and cooling costs.
- Less frequent need for changing/cleaning air filters.
- Improved indoor air quality, as the ducts are no longer spreading pollutants throughout the house.
- Less strain on the systems, as they won’t be combatting increased airflow resistance.
- A cleaner home, with less accumulation of dust and other settled pollutants.
There are various reasons why your air ducts may become dirty. It’s possible that you don’t change your air filter enough, and that air is bypassing the filter as it creates more and more resistance. You may also have a leak somewhere in your ductwork, which is allowing pollutants to make their way into the system. That will require professional duct sealing or repair if you want to solve the problem successfully.
Whatever the cause of your dirty air ducts, cleaner ducts will benefit you across the board. Be sure to dial our number when the time comes to schedule your duct cleaning with trained professionals that will do the job right.
