Ask a Madison HVAC Contractor: Should I Have My Air Ducts Cleaned?

To Clean or Not to Clean? Read to Find Out What’s Best for You

Before all the heaters start kicking into full gear, customers across the board seem to want their air ducts cleaned. While it seems no one can agree on whether or not regular air duct cleaning is necessary, it is recommended to have it done in special circumstances.

Such situations include:

  1. A lot of visible mold growing within the heating ducts or on other parts of your HVAC system
  2. Pests – mice, rats, or insects – infesting portions of the duct system
  3. Excessive amounts of dust or debris that are clogging the duct system and releasing that debris into your home through the vent registers when the system is operating

There are some other factors to consider when deciding whether or not to have your ducts cleaned. If you have smokers in the household, pets that shed a lot of dander, water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system, or just remodeled there’s probably a lot that needs to be cleaned out. Residents with allergies or asthma would probably benefit from a reduction in the number of pollutants in your HVAC system also.
