The Importance of Air Ducts
You may be reading this and think “why is it important that I have clean air ducts?” The truth is that air ducts are critically important to the quality of the air in your home. On average, it’s generally assumed that air cycles (through your ducts) and your entire home roughly seven times a day. So, that’s a little more than every three hours. If there’s something in there that’s causing a problem or is otherwise unsanitary, that’s a massive health problem in your home. You trust that the place you and your loved one’s life is going to have high quality, healthy air – clean air ducts can make sure that’s the case.
Signs Your Ducts Need To be Cleaned
One of the clearest signs that you need to have your air ducts cleaned is that you see dirt and other kinds of debris around the vents. Air ducts are so susceptible to picking up dirt and other kinds of grime. Often, if you see that dirt and debris, it means that something’s blocking your ducts. Inside them, there’s some kind of blockade (in all likelihood) which is why you’re seeing the dirt and debris at the edge. When we show up, we can get rid of the debris you can see as well as the blockade that you can’t.
Other Signs Ducts Need To be Cleaned
Living in southern California, there are going to be months where you have higher energy bills. For many of us, those are the summer months – when we have our air conditioning on for what feels like all June, July, and August. However, if you see that your bills are extremely high when you maybe didn’t run your energy that much, then this could be a sign that your air ducts could use a clean. What happens is that debris and other kinds of problems get into your ducts and then make them less efficient. That shows up on your bill as more energy being used.
Another often overlooked sign of air ducts that could be cleaned is if you or other members of your family start having bad respiratory, sinus, allergy or even asthma problems. Obviously, this isn’t always the fault of the air ducts. In southern California, one’s allergies can pick up when the seasons change, that kind of thing. However, if everyone in your home suddenly has the worst allergy or respiratory concerns than they might during other times of the year (or even in comparison to people they know) then it might be time to bring in the professionals to clean your air ducts.
