Your air filter catches a lot of the dust and particles traveling with the air, but it can’t catch everything. A surprising amount of debris stays behind along the walls of your ductwork, and anything restricting airflow in your ducts means your furnace and air conditioner have to work hard to get the air through.

Some of that gunk left behind gets flushed out into the air your family breathes.

This means:

  1. You pay more than you should every month as the HVAC system works overtime.
  2. Your family is breathing in air that might be more damaging to their health than outside air.

It’s worth having your air ducts cleaned from time to time to keep your furnace or AC in good condition and the air in your home fresh.

You should also be sure to get the ducts cleaned…

  1. After home upgrades where any dust was released into the air.
  2. When you’ve been hit with an animal infestation. Bugs and rodents get into the ductwork, leaving feces and other rancid things behind.
  3. If mould is found anywhere in your house. Traces of it will also have migrated to the ductwork.
  4. Annually if family members have any sort of respiratory illnesses.
