When Should You Have your HVAC Ducts Cleaned?
The general rule of thumb is to have your air ducts cleaned professionally once every 2 or 3 years. This demand may increase if there is work being done in your home that produces more dust, or people in your home have allergies or respiratory conditions.
Some helpful indicators that it may be time for a duct cleaning, are:
- Visible dust blowing
- Visible mold
- Signs of rodent infestation
- Emergence of health problems
- Inflated energy bills
If you can actually see the dust blowing around your house, that is a very strong sign that it is time for a duct cleaning.
If you are continually seeing dust buildup on the furniture, even though you dust regularly, that is also a tip off that an air duct cleaning is in order.
Excessive mold is a health risk for everyone, not just people with respiratory issues. If you are consistently breathing in mold, it can lead to a variety of ailments, like:
- Sore throat
- Eye irritation
- Skin conditions
- Pulmonary issues
If you see mold growing in your air ducts or vents, it is a prime time to call Air In Motion for assistance.
It is usually pretty easy to tell if rodents have invaded your home. There are typically clues around that will indicate animal infestation, like unpleasant odours or animal droppings.
Dirty air ducts present enticing homes for small animals. Keeping your HVAC ducts consistently clean will take care of this problem.
Emergence of Health Problems
If people in your home are starting to get sick more frequently, it may be due to grimy air vents. Especially if asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues start to develop, it could be a result of poor quality.
Inflated Air Bills
Inexplicable increases in utility bills can be caused by an inefficient HVAC system.
Keeping your ductwork clean is good for your health as well as your bank account.
