Not every homeowner is going to need to schedule professional duct cleaning. However, those who do require duct cleaning must be sure to hire a professional to do the job. There is just no way in which a nonprofessional can hope to clean his or her air ducts in an effective and thorough manner. How, though, does one determine if his or her air ducts are in fact in need of cleaning? Doing so can be tricky, as you cannot simply peer into your ductwork in order to assess the condition within. There are plenty of warning signs which can indicate the need for professional duct cleaning in Tampa, FL, though. Keep an eye out, and contact IERNA’s Heating & Cooling if you suspect the need for duct cleaning in your home.
Reduced Indoor Air Quality
Have you noticed that there is a more substantial presence of dust or dirt floating around in your home? Has it occurred to you that these pollutants seem to be settling on surfaces within your home in greater quantities and shorter amounts of time than before? If so, then it is very likely that you could benefit from professional duct cleaning services. You may also notice that this reduced indoor air quality is leaving your allergy and/or asthma symptoms quite aggravated.
Reduced Energy Efficiency
Does it seem as those your cooling costs are climbing higher and higher? This could actually be due to dirty ductwork as well. No, chances are that your air ducts are not so clogged that air cannot pass through them, driving up airflow resistance. However, your air filters could be clogging up quicker than is usual, and a buildup of pollutants on certain components within your HVAC system could also drag down efficiency levels.
It is possible for pests to infiltrate the ductwork in your home. If and when this happens, you should always have your ductwork professionally cleaned. You don’t want the pollutants left behind by these pests to make their way throughout your home. Contact us if you have any concerns about the cleanliness of your ductwork.
