How to Know When and If Your Ducts Need to Be Cleaned

If you have never contracted someone to clean the ducts in your home, it is highly likely that it is time. The National Air Duct Cleaning Association recommends a regular cleaning of the ducts.

You may be asking yourself, “Do I need my air ducts cleaned?” The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends HVAC system cleaning and restoration if:

  • The HVAC system is contaminated with an accumulation of particulate
  • The HVAC system performance is compromised due to contamination build-up
  • The HVAC system has been determined to be a source of unacceptable odors
  • The HVAC system is discharging visible dirt or debris into the conditioned space
  • The HVAC system has been contaminated as a result of fire, smoke, and/or water damage
  • The HVAC system has been infested with birds, rodents, insects, or their byproducts
  • The HVAC system has become contaminated with construction debris or dust
  • As part of the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance practices

When you call Air Care Wizard, we take the time to understand and address your concerns. It’s possible that air duct cleaning may not be the solution for your situation. Rest assured, our team will point you in the right direction.

Other Benefits to Regular Cleanings

In addition to the health benefits of having your air ducts cleaned on a regular basis, there are other major reasons to consider this type of maintenance. When you have clean ducts, your system will not have to work as hard to push air through your dwelling.

A clean HVAC system can reduce your power bills and increase efficiency in heating or cooling your space. Even if you replace the filters on a regular basis, the system coils can become clogged. This requires professional equipment, tools and knowhow.

When your unit has to work harder, it runs hotter. Thus shortening its life expectancy. You can save yourself a great deal of money by maintaining your unit rather than having it fail prematurely. Preventative maintenance is an investment that results in a longer lasting system that works more efficiently.

Some of the things you can expect to see as a result of a clean system include:

  • Cleaner vents
  • Better air flow
  • Lower energy bills
  • Less dust present in the room
  • Consistent temperatures throughout the dwelling

With a clean system, you can expect a reduction of allergens as well as a system that heats and cools your home better.
