Failing to keep the air ducts in your Pawley’s Island, South Carolina, home can result in poor indoor air quality and reduced HVAC efficiency. Here three signs that you need professional duct cleaning:
Increased Dust or Debris
Have you noticed a large amount of dust or debris collecting in and around your home’s air registers? This may mean you have a blockage in your air ducts, especially if you notice increased dust around your home. If you don’t regularly replace your HVAC system’s air filter, the dust that should collect in the filter may collect inside your air ducts and vents.
While you can wipe down and vacuum your vents to remove visible dust and debris, you should have a professional duct cleaning to properly clean out your air ducts and improve your indoor air quality.
If you have visible signs of bacterial growth in your ductwork, you definitely need to have your air ducts professionally inspected, cleaned, and sanitized. Bacterial growth can cause various health issues, so schedule an inspection as soon as you can to keep you and your family safe and healthy.
Higher Energy Bills
Since dirty air ducts can reduce HVAC efficiency, you may need a professional duct cleaning, especially if your energy bills have spiked. Several issues can cause your HVAC system to use more energy than usual, including a system nearing the end of its average 10-year life. Be sure to have a professional inspect your system and the ductwork to determine the issue. If the issue is the air ducts, having them professionally cleaned will improve airflow and system efficiency.
