Is it Necessary to Have My Ducts Cleaned?

One question that we get from clients occasionally is whether or not they should bother having their air ducts professionally cleaned. The answer, in truth, varies. The best way in which to determine if you require professional duct cleaning services in your Land O’ Lakes, FL home is to have a trained professional assess their condition in person. Not every HVAC system is going to require duct cleaning, and those that do may not require it on a regular basis. All this being said, those HVAC systems which do need to have their air ducts cleaned can benefit greatly from the process. While you cannot really inspect your air ducts on your own, there are a few different indicators to be aware of which can signal the need for professional duct cleaning in your residence. Contact Ierna’s Heating & Cooling today if you notice these warning signs in your home.

  • Your Heating and Cooling Costs Are Too High: One indicator that your air ducts may need to be cleaned is a steady climb in your heating and cooling costs. It is highly unlikely, of course, that pollutants in your air ducts will build up to the point that air has a difficult time making its way through them. However, it is possible for pollutants in the ductwork to clog up your air filters as they try to pass through, putting excessive strain on your HVAC system. These pollutants can also collect on vital components within your HVAC system itself, rendering it incapable of functioning at peak performance levels.
  • Decreased Indoor Air Quality: Does it seem like there is a higher concentration of pollutants than usual in the air surrounding you? Does it look like dust and dirt is building up on surfaces throughout your home, even though you are cleaning regularly? Well, this could be due to your ductwork distributing pollutants to every room in your home, along with the conditioned air intended. Contact us to have the problem alleviated.
  • Aggravated Allergy or Asthma Symptoms: As you can imagine, air ducts blowing pollutants throughout your household can really impact those residents therein with allergies or asthma. If you start to notice more frequent flareups of such conditions, scheduling professional duct cleaning services can help to resolve the issue. Call now for more details about our comprehensive duct cleaning services.
