Three major ways that dirty ductwork affects the health and comfort of the people living in your home.
- Allergies and respiratory issues: If you or your family members suffer from bad allergies or are sick frequently, dirty ductwork might be a contributing factor.
- Reduced airflow: All that buildup in your ducts will hinder the airflow in your home. This will result in the air from your vents being weaker than normal and it will also take longer to cool or heat your home.
- Irritated skin: Different irritants like dust or mold spores circulating in the air can cause or worsen skin issues such as eczema, rashes, and hives.
When to Schedule Duct Cleaning ?
Duct cleaning isn’t needed annually like maintenance. However, it is a good idea to schedule this service every one to three years. How frequently you need duct cleaning will vary depending on your use of your HVAC system, the solidity of your ductwork, and your indoor air quality.
