Why are clean air ducts important?

It can be easy to forget to clean your air ducts because you cannot see them.  The old saying, out of sight out of mind, can be true when it comes to air duct cleaning.  But what you may not know is that what you cannot see may be affecting the health of you and your family.  In addition to dust and debris in your air ducts, fungi and bacteria can also grow.

clean air ducts are importantThe people in your home who are most affected by unclean air ducts would be the elderly, children, people with allergies or those who have asthma.  If the air ducts are not clean, it will release unclean pollutants into the air every time your heat or air comes on.  When this is released into the air it can irritate those who have asthma and allergies as well as children and the elderly.  In some cases, this can be so severe that a doctor/hospital visit may be warranted.

In addition to affecting your health, unclean air ducts can also have a negative impact on your HVAC system.  If you do not have them cleaned regularly, it can cause the HVAC unit to overextend itself which will increase your power bill, reduce efficiency and eventually kill the unit.

There are also instances where insects or small animals can enter your air ducts.  When they do this, they can leave their droppings or even die.  As the air turns on, it will release this into your air which is not healthy and it also will not smell very good.  In the instance that you have an animal or insects in your air ducts, you will also need to hire a professional exterminator. They will remove the insect and animal and also add a barrier so other animals or insects will not be able to enter the air duct.

So, if you want to keep everyone in your home healthy and extend the life of your HVAC unit, it is important to keep your air ducts cleaned.  To learn more about clean air ducts, visit the website for the Environmental Protection Agency.

How often should air ducts be cleaned?

When it comes to cleaning your air ducts, there is not a set schedule as it depends on several factors that are different in each home.  Some of these factors include the following:

  • Before you move into a new home you should have your air ducts cleaned. This is important because you do not know how the previous inhabitants lived and how they took care of their home.
  • If anyone in the house is a smoker, then you should get your air ducts cleaned regularly. The smoke from the cigarettes can go into and coat the inside of the air ducts.  They should be cleaned regularly to remove this smoke.
  • If there has been water damage in the house or the HVAC system then you need to get your air ducts cleaned. This is important because when there is water, mold can quickly follow.  If mold grows in your air ducts, this can create harmful air to come out when the heating or air is turned on.
  • If you have any pets in your home, then you should get your air ducts cleaned regularly. Pets shed their hair and dander which can end up in the air ducts.  If it is not cleaned out regularly, then it will be dispersed into the air when you turn the air or heat on.
  • If you have done any remodeling or renovations in your home, you should get your air ducts cleaned. This is important because during this time a lot of dust and debris are kicked up in the air ending up in the air ducts.  The only way to remove this is to have the air ducts cleaned.
  • If anyone in the house has asthma, allergies are elderly or an infant, then the air ducts need to be cleaned regularly. When the air ducts are not clean, it can release polluted allergens into the air which can affect their health.
