What Are Signs Your Ducts Need Cleaning?

Generally, dust buildup is slow. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, homeowners only need to worry about duct cleaning as needed—certainly if you detect mold, an animal or insect presence, or large amounts of visible dirt and dust in your system. In addition to these problems, activities like sanding, remodeling, or paint-stripping could cause a buildup of particles in your system and merit a cleaning.

How Often Should You Have Your Ducts Cleaned?

Duct cleaning is a very often overlooked part of HVAC maintenance and is necessary to improving indoor air quality. Homeowners should have their ducts cleaned at least every 3 to 5 years to avoid problems with their indoor air quality such as allergens and dust polluting the air. For those who are concerned about allergens or dust for health reasons, it also makes sense to go the extra step and schedule a cleaning, just to make sure your ducts aren’t another source of airborne particles in your home.

Comprehensive Duct Cleaning Process for Waukegan Residents

Some studies have shown that duct cleaning results in a drop in dust circulation—others show a slight increase shortly after cleaning. This demonstrates that duct cleaning needs to be done right, or you’re just kicking up dust in your system rather than removing it from your ducts.

You want to make sure your Waukegan duct cleaning service is done properly instead of just blowing dust around your home. At Kern Heating & Cooling Co., we make sure your system is clean, and we do it the right way, caring for your home and your comfort every step of the way. Having a weakened HVAC system could be a sign that it is time for a cleaning or it could indicate the need for a new heating or AC system installation.

We ensure each part of your HVAC system is clean and in working order, including:

  • Supply and return ducts
  • Air registers and grilles
  • Heating and cooling coils
  • Fan blades
  • Air handling unit housings
