When Should Duct Cleaning Be Performed?

Understanding the benefits and potential issues of air duct cleaning can be quite challenging for a homeowner. Conditions in each home are different so it is tough to discover if air duct cleaning in your home would be beneficial.

If you notice random allergies or unexplained itchiness of the eyes or throat, it may be time to have your air ducts cleaned.

About five to seven times per day, the air circulates into the air ducts of the home and carries dust and debris. While the furnace filter catches most of the debris, there can be a buildup for dust inside your ductwork that ruins the efficiency of the system.

It may be easy to use a vacuum cleaner hose into the duct but if you see a long trail of junk and thick coat of dust, your house may be ready for a duct cleaning.

Pay Attention to the Following Symptoms:

  • Clogs of dust and debris
  • Mold on the inside surface of ducts
  • Rodent droppings or dead insects inside of the air duct system

Homeowners can actually save a significant amount of money when having their air duct cleaned. Clean systems are not as likely to break down and will save you a bundle on your energy bill. Contact Nashoba Air & BoilerWorks today at (978) 540-8676 .
