Vents are Clogged With Debris
If your vents are clogged with debris, like pet dander or dust, have them professionally cleaned. Not only are full air ducts preventing your home from breathing clean, high-quality air, but it’s also reducing your HVAC system’s efficiency.
Strange Odor When HVAC is On
Musty, stale odors are possible signs of mold and mildew in your ductwork. Duct cleaning can remove mold and mildew, eliminating possible health risks. Other odors, like burning or chemical smells, can signal issues with your HVAC system that require the attention of a professional.
Poor Airflow in the Home
Your air ducts act as the transportation system for air throughout your home, carrying heated or cooled air from your HVAC system to each air vent in the home. If airflow feels weak throughout the home, it could be a sign of air duct blockages that need to be cleaned. Over time, air ducts can accumulate dust, dirt, pet hair, and other debris, which can obstruct airflow and reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system.
Excessive Dust Throughout the Home
Small amounts of dust throughout the home are normal. But, if high amounts of dust quickly build up, your ductwork might be excessively dusty and require a thorough, professional cleaning. If you notice dust buildup around your registers, it’s time for an air duct cleaning. Excessive dust can cause a range of issues, including worsening allergies or asthma symptoms.
