Clean air is important in any environment; a duct that has never been cleaned could cause breathing issues over time. There could be mold spores and bacteria building up which could be extremely problematic for people with respiratory problems such as asthma. Aside from health issues, over the years duct can tare, tape comes loose and the pressure in your system can slowly fade causing cold air to escape into places where it shouldn’t go such as an attic.
When an Air Duct is inspected, a simple repair on a duct that had a small tear in it could save you a lot of money on your electric bill. If you take a flashlight and look inside your supply register you may see a buildup of dust and particles, maybe even vermin such as rodents or insects. There is special equipment that is used to clean and reach the places you can’t even see. This type of service is especially recommended to someone living in an old house that can honestly say they have never had their Air Ducts inspected or cleaned. Maintenance Contracts are great to look into as they usually provide yearly or biyearly inspections and tune-ups.
