Air ducts are responsible for circulating warm or cool air throughout your Thomasville, GA, home. They can attract and collect dirt or dust that will lower the efficiency of your HVAC system and the quality of your indoor air. Here are four ways you can tell that you need your air ducts cleaned.
Presence of Rodents and Pests
Firstly, rodents may find their way into your air ducts and decompose, releasing bad odor. This may lower the quality of your indoor air and cause discomfort. Contacting qualified service technicians to clean your ducts will remove any rodents in them and restore their efficacy.
Recently Built Homes or Major Renovations
Constructions or major home renovations leave a lot of dust, dirt and debris that may find their way into the ducts. Other construction materials can also get into the air ducts and cause serious problems. It’s important to have the air ducts covered during major renovations or have professional service technicians clean them after construction.
Older homes may have ducts rarely or never cleaned. They have a lot of dust and dirt accumulation, which affects the quality of your indoor air.
Biological Growth and Contaminants
Humid environments provide a favorable environment for the growth of biological pollutants. Biological growth, dust or dirt can trigger asthma attacks, allergies and other respiratory issues. This may indicate that your air ducts need cleaning. Hiring a professional service tech to clean your air ducts will help to improve your health and comfort.
High Energy Bills
Finally, the presence of dirt, dust and other air pollutants can lower the efficiency of your system, which leads to high energy bills. Hiring a qualified service tech to clean your ducts will restore efficiency to your system. As a result, it’ll help to lower your utility bills.
