Have you been thinking about getting your air ducts cleaned? Maybe you’re not really sure it’s worth your money. If you’ve been doing your research on this service then you’ve probably seen all kinds of opinions.
The truth is air duct cleaning is a valuable service that can improve the air quality in your home and save you money by making air circulation easier throughout your home.
So does every home need air duct cleaning? At some point, your air ducts are going to need to be cleaned. How often you need the service will depend on several factors, like where you live, whether or not you have pets, and if there are people in your home who suffer from allergies.
There are several signs to look for to determine if your air ducts are due for a cleaning. Here are a few of the most obvious ones.
If you’ve found mold or mildew in your furnace or AC system, then chances are your air ducts are full of it and they are helping to spread it throughout your home.
You might think that a new home wouldn’t need an air duct cleaning, but the truth is a lot of dust gets in your ducts during new construction or a renovation.
If your home seems to be always dusty even though you clean it regularly, that’s another sign you need your ducts cleaned.
Lastly, if your energy bill is going up without any obvious reasons, then dirty ducts could be the reason. Dirty ducts make your HVAC system work harder, which drives up your energy costs.
