The Importance of Your Ductwork
Ductwork plays an essential role in distributing heated and cooled air to the different areas of your home. When debris and dust build up inside the duct system or there is a problem with the ducts, HVAC equipment performance is affected, and indoor air quality is reduced. There are some signs you can watch for to know when it’s time to call for our duct services in Hoffman Estates.
Signs of a problem with your ductwork include:
- Air filters getting dirty faster than usual
- Dust, pet hair, and debris in the air vents
- The house is dustier than normal
- An increase in allergy and asthma symptoms
- Uneven heating and cooling in different rooms
- Weak airflow
- A musty, mildew odor
- High energy bills
The work that is needed will depend on the problem with your duct system. If the ducts are dirty and the airflow is weak, duct cleaning can remove dust and other debris. Clean ducts allow the air to flow freely and reduce the contaminants in the air. If the ducts have holes, separated sections, or leaks, duct repair will be recommended to restore your system.
The duct system helps keep an even temperature in your home. As the air moves through the ductwork, it can carry dust, pet dander, animal hair, lint, pollen, and other airborne contaminants. The presence of these pollutants can create excess dirt in the air, make your heating and air conditioning equipment work harder, reduce home comfort, and cause physical symptoms in your family members.
Professional duct cleaning uses specialized equipment to clean the ducts and remove dust and other debris that has accumulated in the air ducts. If there is another problem, such as holes, gaps, or damage to the ductwork, your technician will recommend duct repair. Fixing problems improves comfort and reduces wear and tear on your valuable heating and air conditioning equipment.
