4 Signs that You Need Air Duct Cleaning

If the HVAC system in your Jacksonville, Florida, home isn’t cooling optimally, a component isn’t working properly. Before assuming the worst, consider having a professional HVAC company check the ductwork. Something as simple as dirty ducts could be to blame. Here are some signs your HVAC system needs air duct cleaning:

Increased Energy Costs

If you’ve noticed an increase in your monthly heating or cooling costs but you haven’t increased your HVAC use, the system’s ductwork might need a thorough cleaning. As dirt and dust settle in these ducts, the resulting buildup can affect airflow.

Dust Around the Clock

Every home is susceptible to an infiltration of dust particles. Dust can get into your home any time that your front, back, patio or sliding doors are open. It also happens when you leave windows open to let in a fresh breeze.

Dirt, dust, and debris that get pulled into your HVAC system and settle in the ductwork can result in continuous dust, as well. Every time the system turns on, dust blows out through the vents. As a result, it leaves you with extra cleaning and reduced air quality.

Remodeling or Renovation Debris

If you’ve recently had your home remodeled or renovated, dirt, dust and assorted particles from the project will make their way into the ducts. Once settled inside, the debris will compromise the airflow through your home. As a result, it’ll strain your HVAC system.

A Strange Odor

If you keep your home clean and fresh but still notice an obvious or inexplicable odor, have the ducts checked. Over time, as dust and dirt particles accumulate and cook in the ductwork, they will emit smelly air into your home.
