Do Your Air Ducts and Vents Need to be Cleaned?

A lot of homeowners tend to overlook duct cleaning, but it’s a very important task that is crucial to maintaining your home’s heating and air conditioning system. If you neglect it, your energy costs can increase, your system will perform inefficiently, your home’s air quality could decline, and your HVAC system could break down.

So, how can you tell if it’s time to clean your air ducts and vents?

One thing to look at is your home’s energy bills. Have they been going up? If so, that could be a sign your HVAC unit isn’t operating as efficiently as it used to, which might mean that the ducts and vents need to be cleaned to improve air flow.

Another thing to look at is your indoor comfort. Are you having a difficult time getting your home to be comfortable? When your ducts and vents are clogged up, your HVAC system has to work harder to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, so it might be time to have the ducts cleaned.

Finally, the easiest way to determine if it’s time to clean your air ducts and vents is to figure out how long it’s been since you’ve done it last. At minimum this needs to be done once a year.
