The Importance of Air Duct Cleaning
Both heating and cooling units like your air conditioner have air ducts. These also include return and supply ducts for passing and receiving the cooler or warmer air. Other important parts of your air conditioner are its fan house and motor, the condensate drip/drain pains, cooling coils, diffusers, grilles, and registers.
However, as a part of your regular air conditioner maintenance schedule, you should get your AC air ducts cleaned regularly. Otherwise, you could have a slew of issues. Some of these problems include:
Dust Particles from the Ducts Get into Your Home
Air ducts are supposed to transfer cool air from one part of the house to another. When these are clogged up with debris, that stops happening. Instead, dusty particles may be released into the cool air. That air gets breathed in by you and members of your family. If everyone is coughing or sneezing more often than usual, it could be because of dust particles in the air.
Insects and Rodents Can Make Their Homes in the Ducts
This is pretty gross, but it does happen. Insects and rodents will enjoy the haven that is the air ducts. These are hidden out of sight, so these critters can settle down and multiply. By getting your air ducts cleaned regularly, insects and rodents never have a chance to get comfortable.
Mold and Mildew Can Grow
Sheet metal on its own is not a breeding ground for mold and mildew. The moisture that can linger in the metal air ducts is what mold thrives on, though. As you probably know, breathing in mold and mildew is not good for your health. You might be sneezy, congested, and have a hard time breathing.
It can be tough to diagnose a case of mold or mildew in your air ducts since you can’t see these. A technician will know what to look for!
Air Quality in the House Is Poor
If you feel the quality of air in your house is not clean or cool enough, it could be because it’s been a while since the AC air ducts have been wiped down. You deserve to breathe easy every day and night. It’s time to schedule your AC duct cleaning.
