The ducts in your home are critical in maintaining the ideal temperature. Make sure to take proper care of them to ensure they will continue running efficiently for years to come. Through proper maintenance, you will save more throughout the year on heating and cooling bills.

What is it?


For those who have forced air systems, duct cleaning should be done every three to five years to keep the heating and cooling system running efficiently. If you have a smoker in your home, pets that shed, or kids in the home, you may want to consider doing it more frequently. This will include the cleaning of supply and return ducts, grilles, diffusers, heat exchangers, various coils, drip pans, the components of the fan, and the air handling unit housing.


All this will work to ensure everything is properly installed and maintained. In addition to these benefits, a duct cleaning will remove dust, pollen, or other particles that have been congregating in your air ducts. Although your air filter should be removing most of this, some particles in the ducts are normal, especially if you don’t change the filter often enough.


If there is any moisture within the ducts of your system, it is possible that mold could be thriving in your ducts. Not only can this be a growing problem for the system, but it can cause sickness in your home, spreading through the air. Make sure to get this taken care of through duct cleaning, and learn how to reduce the moisture here.
