For many Chickasha and Duncan homeowners, their heating and cooling ducts are out of sight and out of mind. Yet, whatever might be hiding in your ducts may have a negative effect on your home’s indoor air quality. After all, your ductwork is supposed to be circulating fresh air throughout your home. When your ducts aren’t as clean as they could be, your health and comfort could be at risk. Professional duct cleaning services from DeHart Air Conditioning can improve your home’s indoor air quality.
What Are Signs My Home’s Ducts May Need Cleaning?
Many homeowners wonder how often their ductwork needs to be cleaned. While the signals your ducts need cleaning can be subtle, if you notice any of these common signs of dirty ductwork it’s probably time for a clean-up:
If your home seems to require constant dusting or dust seems to build up quickly, your heating and cooling ducts could be circulating dust that’s accumulated over the years.
Allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itchy eyes, or asthma
Do your allergy symptoms get worse inside your Duncan home? Then your ducts may be harboring allergens, bacteria, and viruses, and spreading them around inside your home.
Dirty or dusty air vents
Take a look at the vents in your home. If they seem extra dirty or have lots of dust, the buildup could be coming from inside the ducts.
Air filters that become clogged too soon
If you find you’re swapping out air filters more and more frequently, it could be a sign of dirty ducts.
Ineffective heating and cooling systems
Is your home not feeling as warm or cool as your thermostat indicates? Dirty ducts can clog up the air flow and waste energy, making your furnace or AC work harder than it needs to.
Visible signs of insect or rodent infestation
These signs may be in the attic or around vents, and could include dead insects or animal droppings in the attic or crawl space. In these instances, your duct sanitation may need attention!
How Does Duct Cleaning Work?
The DeHart Air Conditioning duct cleaning team uses specialized equipment to clean your ductwork and remove dust, allergens, and other pollutants that live inside your HVAC ducts. Using industry-leading Rotobrush equipment, our duct cleaning team will stir up dust and particles inside your ducts, and then safely vacuum them up before they can circulate inside your home.
Once your ducts are cleaned, you may opt to have duct sanitization done to eliminate bacteria and other harmful substances that may still reside in the ducts. To sanitize, the duct cleaning pros at DeHart Air Conditioning will “fog” a specialized sanitizing mist into the ductwork to eliminate harmful bacteria.
How Can Dirty Ducts Affect My Home’s Indoor Air Quality?
With today’s tightly sealed and well-insulated homes, paying attention to your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) is more important than ever! Duct cleaning by the professionals at DeHart Air Conditioning can be the first step to a cleaner and healthier home. By removing air pollutants like germs, bacteria, and allergens, your family can breathe easier.
Once your ducts are cleaned and sanitized, you may want to add an air filtration system or humidity controls to enhance your home’s HVAC performance. Many families with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions enjoy healthier and cleaner indoor air with an IAQ upgrade.
