Why you should clean your ducts this spring

You should have your ducts cleaned every two to three years to ensure good airflow and reduce dust and pollutants in your home. Dust, pollen, mould, and other debris accumulate within the ducts, impacting air quality and your family's health.

Contact Fagnan’s Furnace Service this spring for HVAC maintenance and duct cleaning. We are Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer with expertise working on all major HVAC systems.

Signs you should clean your ducts

The vents and ducts are clogged

Dust and debris accumulate within the ducts and reduce airflow. You may notice puffs of dust being expelled from the system when it comes on or see dust accumulating on surfaces faster or more than usual. Also, sometimes dirty ducts can result in inconsistent airflow.

The air filter is clogged

A clogged air filter forces your HVAC unit to work harder, making it less efficient and more expensive to run. If there’s a sudden spike in your energy bill, check the filter first. Typically, you should replace the air filters every three months. However, if the air filter clogs within a few days, there’s probably too much dust, and debris stuck in the ducts.

Your home smells musty

This odour can indicate mould or mildew in your HVAC system. Mould has serious effects on your health, and you should deal with it quickly. Be sure to check for discolouration or mould growth around vent covers and air conditioning units. If there’s a mysterious and unpleasant smell in your home, call in a professional for an inspection.

Benefits of cleaning your ducts

Improves indoor air quality

Your HVAC unit will be able to work effectively, filtering out contaminants like pet dander, dust, chemicals, mould, mildew, and pollen. Duct cleaning can make a significant difference for people with asthma or allergies.

It boosts your HVAC unit’s efficiency and saves you money

Clogged ducts restrict airflow, causing your HVAC unit to work harder than it should. Consequently, this leads to increased energy usage and higher energy bills.

Your HVAC units and air filters last longer

Dirty ducts strain your HVAC system and wear it down faster. Ongoing strain means it’s more likely to need more repairs and has a shorter lifespan. Cleaner air ducts also mean you don’t have to replace the air filters as frequently.
