Call Aire Serv if you see:
- Thick layers of dust on your vent cover
- Thick coatings of fuzz on your return air register
- Large amounts of debris in your air filters
- Dust or debris in your A/C coil housing
- Any amount of dust near your A/C motor
Another sign to watch out for is if your HVAC system takes a long time to cool or heat your room. Consider how long it took your AC to work when you last cleaned it. It’s not just a matter of age—large amounts of dust clog up your air filter, forcing the system to work harder to push air through the filter. Dirty ducts overstress the system, leading to more wear and tear over time.
If your heating/cooling system is far less efficient than it used to be, the other problem might be leaky ducts. Wear and tear over time is natural, but if your ducts are leaking, that will stress the system even further. It is far better to replace your ducts than to replace your whole system in a year or two.
The Advantages of Clean Ducts
For one thing, clean ducts are more efficient. Your machine will take less time to cool your home, thus reducing its running time. That will save you money every month on your energy bill as well as save you money on costly repairs in the future. No homeowner wants to turn down savings.
More importantly, however, clean ducts create healthier environments. Dust is made of bacteria, pet dander, dead skin, and other contaminants. When left in your air filters and ducts, they become a breeding ground for ailments and allergenic particles. If your family always seems to be sick (or if you have a medically vulnerable person in your home), cleaning your ducts could prevent health issues.
