How do I know if I need to have my ducts cleaned? That is one of the most common questions Mr. Duct Cleaner hears. The answer? Look Up.
Look at your supply duct registers, those vents with the slats and the open and close switch on them. Are they dirty? Can you see dark spots? Look at your furniture. Is there an unusual amount of dirt and specks accumulating?
If you just moved into your home and you are not sure when the last time your HVAC system and ducts were cleaned, take a closer look at the supplies and the returns, the bigger vents that don’t typically have an open and shut switch on them. If you can see the dirt in there, it is probably a sign you should have the system cleaned.
If someone in your home is sensitive to pollens, VOC’s, dander, and dust mites it is a good idea to have your HVAC system and duct system cleaned on a regular basis. Hopefully this will give them comfort and cut down on doctor visits.
Cleaning your HVAC and duct system can increase your energy efficiency and help save money on utility bills.
