If you’re like many homeowners, you may take an “out of sight, out of mind” approach to your home’s HVAC system. However, doing so can pose some problems when it comes to dust and debris buildup in your home’s air ducts. Not only can dusty ducts lower the quality and breathability of the air in your home, they can also limit the lifespan of your furnace or air conditioner. Read on to learn more about some of the problems that can arise from dirty air ducts, as well as how Spot Free’s state-of-the-art HVAC services can help.
Spot Free Air Ducts
Although your home’s HVAC system contains a number of air filters designed to keep dirt, dust, and debris from the outside air from passing through your ducts, these filters won’t always prevent the buildup of dust and dirt from other sources. Often, the same air can be recirculated through your ducts a number of times before it ever passes through a filter.
Over a period of years, your ducts will naturally accumulate large deposits of dust, pollen, and other environmental contaminants that can be tough to remove without special tools.
Not only can this dust impede the efficiency of your air conditioner by requiring it to work harder to push air through your vents, it can present allergen hazards to a home’s occupants. Even those who aren’t normally sensitive to dust and other air particulates can find themselves dealing with a scratchy throat, runny nose, or other allergy-like symptoms on days when the amount of dust or particles in the air is particularly high.
If this isn’t enough to convince you of the importance of cleaning your air ducts, consider this: the dust and dirt that can accumulate in your air vent can also act as food for bacteria and other small organisms (like dust mites). Eliminating this food source can ensure your home’s ducts are pest-free.
