Since your air ducts deliver cool or warm air from season to season, they must be cleaned out. Scheduling your duct cleaning is simply one phone call away, but when should you schedule your consultation?
Air Tech of Houston AC & Plumbing wants to help our clients become aware of what they might face when their air ducts need to be cleaned. Here are four signs that your air ducts need to be serviced before your air becomes unhealthy or harmful.
Clogs And Unstable Airflow
If your air ducts are clogged with debris, it’s time to get them cleaned out. Your air ducts could force out a small puff of dust when the system turns on or your air filters may have debris buildup. This is the opportune time to get your vents cleaned and your air filters replaced so you can have better airflow in your home. You should change your air filters every 1-3 months depending on debris buildup.
Unstable or poor airflow is another serious indicator that your system could have debris clogs in it. Your airflow should be consistent in every room and deliver the same quality air throughout your home. If you have some warm spots in your home or feel like the air isn’t circulating well enough, contact Air Tech of Houston to clean out your vents.
Strange Or Unusual Noises
Strange noises can be a symptom of many different problems with your HVAC system. Your system shouldn’t be making any unusual sounds while it’s running, so it’s important to call in a specialist to get a look at your system.
Sometimes, dusty air ducts can lead to other problems in the system. It can increase the amount of buildup on important parts of your system. If you’re concerned with the sounds your cooling system makes, get in touch with our team.
Foul Odors Or Humidity Problems
Your air conditioner is in charge of filtering out debris so you can have healthy ventilation in your home. If you start to smell odd odors coming from your air vents, there may be some buildup that’s causing those unpleasant smells.
Debris and dust can trap moisture in your vents, which can lead to harmful growths like mold and mildew. These can spread throughout the vents and cause respiratory problems for you and your household. If your home has a musty smell to it, get these growths cleared out before they create a harmful environment.
High Utility Costs
Every season should have a predictable utility bill if you have lived in your home for a while. If you notice your utility bills suddenly rise, you could have a problem with your air conditioner. It could be overworking to push through the dust and debris in the system, which makes your system consume more energy.
The best way to save on your utility costs is to schedule professional AC maintenance. Our team at Air Tech of Houston can help you get a more energy-efficient home by taking care of your ductwork.
