If It’s In Your Vents, It’s In Your Lungs
Have you noticed that there is dust accumulating even shortly after you clean? That means that there a good amount of dust floating in your air. If it’s in your air, it’s in your lungs. Dust in the air can lead to coughing, congestion, disrupted sleep, and more.
Allergies? Say Goodbye!
If you have been suffering from chronic allergies, even in the Winter, you could have a large air quality problem. Your home’s air ducts hold a lot and can have large impacts on your health. There can be dirt, dust, mold, and bacteria in your air ducts. This means that every time your AC or furnace turns on your home is being filled with contaminated air. A simple air duct cleaning could alleviate some of these symptoms.
Increased Energy Bill
Have you noticed a spike in your heating or cooling bill? If your ducts haven’t been cleaned in a long time there can be such large accumulations of dirt and dust that can physically block air. If air isn’t able to pass through freely your system will have to work extra hard to accomplish the same task. Duct cleaning can save you big money!
Smelling an Odor
Have you noticed a smell that just doesn’t seem to go away no matter how much you clean or what air freshener you use? If you consistently smell mildew, mold, or other bad smell it is likely coming from your ducts. Your air ducts act as a highway for your air which means they are also a highway for the bad things. Duct cleaning is a way to open that highway back up!
Uneven Air Distribution
Have you noticed that some rooms in your home are more cold or warm and others always have consistent temperatures? If so, you probably need your ducts cleaned. If you have uneven temperatures in your home there is probably a block in your air vents or ducts that are disrupting the flow. The only way you are going to be able to regulate your temperatures better is by removing the blockage that has built up. This blockage is usually an accumulation of dust, hair, and other debris.
If you have any of these issues you should look into have your ducts cleaned so you can be breathing easier and enjoy even temperatures in your home! Additional signs you need your ducts cleaned can be found here.
