Air ducts supply cooled and heated air throughout your home to improve your comfort. However, dirt and debris can accumulate in your ducts, lowering their efficiency. Here are four signs your air ducts in Catalina Foothills, AZ, are dirty and require cleaning.
1. Recent Renovations
Construction work usually produces a lot of dirt and debris that may find its way to your ductwork. The dust from construction contains air pollutants that may cause respiratory issues if you don’t cover your HVAC system during major renovations. Cleaning your air ducts will help remove these particulates and improve your indoor air quality.
2. High Energy Bills
Energy bills are usually consistent and predictable throughout the year. A steep rise in your energy bills could indicate signs of dirty air ducts. Dirty air ducts restrict proper airflow, which forces your furnace to work harder to heat your home.
Having your air ducts cleaned by a professional service technician will improve airflow in your home. This will increase your system’s efficiency, reduce your monthly energy bills and increase your home comfort.
3. Poor Health
Increased allergy triggers, asthma attacks and other respiratory problems can be signs of dirty air ducts. Chemical emissions from furniture and building components may also enter your air ducts and cause serious health issues. Cleaning your air ducts helps improve your general health and improve your home’s air quality and comfort.
4. Strange Noises and Odors
You may experience strange noises or shuffling sounds coming from your ducts. Debris, insects, rodents or other critters may enter your air ducts and make these sounds. Cleaning your ducts eliminates the presence of insects or debris that may cause unusual sounds.
Insects and rodents may also die and decompose in your air ducts and produce unpleasant odors. Cleaning your ducts will help remove any rodents in your ducts and improve your indoor air quality.
