When your ductwork is dirty you can expect indoor air quality to suffer. You clean your house, but there are some places you cannot reach. Your ductwork can get very dirty over time. When pollutants begin to build upon the interior surfaces of your ductwork, they can cause the rest of your house to get dirty more often and cause some nasty health problems for you and your family.
How Often Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?
While the NADCA says every three to five years, there are certain factors that may affect when you need to have your air ducts professionally cleaned. This can include mold in your ductwork, pet dander, large amounts of dust exiting the vents, or a pest infestation within the house.
Signs Your Air Ducts Need Cleaning
When your ductwork is dirty you can expect a few different problems.
- Your indoor air quality may suffer. Every bit of air that you heat or cool with your HVAC system passes through these dirty air ducts and is distributed throughout your home, which can lead to health problems.
- Your utility bills are going up. Dirty ductwork can impede the operation of the system and make your unit work harder than it has to in order to cool or heat your home.
