Have you cleaned your air ducts in the past few years? If you can’t remember, then you’re not alone. Because they are essentially hidden “behind the scenes,” some people rarely think of the potential hazards of dirty air ducts. We cannot stress enough the importance of ensuring that your air ducts are free of dust, dirt, and contaminants, especially when they’ve experienced years and years of buildup.
Given the amount of dust particles and allergens that can get trapped in your home’s air ducts, indoor air quality can be a major concern when they haven’t been professionally cleaned in a while. Your air ducts keep fresh air circulating, which means they are the pathways that allow air to enter and exit your home. The air that you and your loved ones breathe must be able to travel freely throughout your home so that it can be ventilated properly. Over time, too much debris can clog your air ducts, increasing the chance that the air moving through these pathways could release dust or contaminants into your home from the supply registers.
For those with allergies or respiratory health issues, the trapped dust in your air ducts can be extremely harmful. Areas where there is an accumulation of dust and dirt also encourages the growth of mold, bacteria, and other fungi—things that have been proven to cause health problems.
Your air ducts are an integral part of the HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system present in your home. Understandably, many homeowners have concerns about the energy efficiency of their home’s HVAC system. One way to help ensure its function and longevity is to maintain your air ducts. Contaminants in the ducts could negatively affect the system by forcing it to work harder, subsequently shortening its lifespan.
