The air inside your home is transferred throughout your indoor living spaces through your ductwork. And, because the very air that you’re breathing in passes through these air ducts, it is crucial for your ductwork to be clean and free of dust, debris, dander, mold and pests. The presence of any of these contaminants can impact your indoor air quality as well as your HVAC unit’s performance.
Here’s how to prevent dirty ductwork.
Schedule Professional Cleaning on a Regular Basis
To ensure the proper and thorough cleaning of your ductwork, it’s highly recommended to hire a professional to do the job. Professional HVAC technicians are trained to handle HVAC units and air ducts with care. Plus, they have the appropriate tools and equipment to carry out the job properly. They can also perform an inspection of your ductwork to see if there are problems that need to be addressed.
Clean Your Home Regularly
Apart from scheduling an air condition service on a regular basis, it’s also important to dust or vacuum your home regularly. Dust, debris and fuzz can accumulate on various surfaces in your home within a short span of time. These pollutants can easily get into your air ducts and potentially cause dirt buildup in your ductwork. But if there are only small amounts of such contaminants in your home, then your air ducts won’t have to deal with so much dirt as well.
Change Your Air Filter on Time
Replace your air filters at regular intervals so that dirt won’t be able to clog your ductwork. Typically, experts recommend changing air filters every one to three months. If you have pets at home or your area is prone to dust storms, it’s best to have your filters replaced every month.
