When your energy bills are sky high.
Have you noticed a big jump in your monthly energy costs but haven’t changed the way you use your HVAC system? This can be an indication of air loss, which is a common problem with faulty ductwork. In fact, it’s estimated that faulty ductwork can account for up to 30% of your home’s total air loss, so if you are seeing sudden, high bills, call for help today.
When you are seeing too much dust and dirt in your home.
Your ductwork can accumulate a great deal of dust and dirt, especially if they haven’t been cleaned in a long time. If the build-up is large enough, the air blowing through your vents will start to bring the excess dust and dirt with it, and deposit it into your living spaces. This can be particularly bad for allergy sufferers.
When you’ve had an infestation.
No homeowner wants to think about “things” inhabiting the ductwork, but it does happen, and when it does, the ductwork needs to be thoroughly cleaned and it’s a good idea to also sanitize. Critters and insects leave a lot behind when they take up residence in your ductwork so it’s important to remove all traces of them completely so they don’t return.
