Your home’s air conditioning system performs better with routine maintenance. Duct cleaning assures efficient operation of the HVAC system and better indoor air quality. Here are some of the telltale signs your ductwork needs duct cleaning in Corona Hills, CA:
If your home is dusty no matter how much you clean, it’s likely your ducts are full of dust. The ducts collect dust, pet dander, pest waste and other contaminants. If the ducts hold too much dust, you may see the dust coming from your vents when you switch on the AC system.
You can check how much dust the vents have by flashing light through the vent. If the sides of the vents are full of dust, our comfort advisor can clean the ductwork and replace the filters to enhance indoor air quality.
Rodents and Insect Infestation
Vermin might find their way into your air ducts and leave bacteria, droppings, hair and nests. This results in tiny fecal matter through the ducts, which enter your home and contaminate the air you breathe. If there are rodents in your ductwork, you’ll see their droppings, find chewed up material or notice unpleasant smells coming from your vents.
Duct cleaning will get rid of the vermin debris from your ducts, but it won’t exterminate the vermin. You need to deal with the vermin first, then request our duct cleaning services. This way, the debris won’t come back to your system after the cleaning.
Rising Energy Costs
Your cooling costs should be predictable. If your bill goes higher than normal, dirty ducts might be the problem. Dirty ducts obstruct the free flow of air, forcing the air conditioner to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature.
You might also notice that some of the rooms don’t receive the same airflow as other rooms. This also is a sign that the system is failing.
