When was the last time your ductwork was cleaned?
It’s important to do all you can to make sure your indoor air is as clean as possible. And, clean air starts with your heating and air conditioning equipment. When was the last time your ductwork was cleaned and/or inspected?
What is your ductwork?
Your ductwork is responsible for transporting air to and from your HVAC system. It can be either hard or flex, insulated, located in your floor or ceiling, and more! The important thing to remember about ductwork is that it must be properly designed for your home to achieve optimal airflow.
If you’re noticing uneven temperatures throughout your home, higher utility bills, more frequent headaches or loud noises coming from your floor or ceiling – it could be due to an issue located inside your ductwork.
A good duct cleaning can alert you to several issues…
- Air leaks
- Mold and mildew growth
There are obvious health and monetary concerns associated with these problems. The presence of mold, insects, and/or rodents can reduce indoor air quality and leave your family in poor health. Air leaks can lead to hot and cold spots, inefficient performance, reduced comfort, and higher utility bills. It’s not always easy to see what is going on behind your walls.. But, having your ductwork inspected is a good way to peak behind the drywall “curtain.”
Don’t delay. Talk to your local contractor about scheduling a duct cleaning appointment this fall.
