Never take your duct system for granted. As with any important component of your home, it needs to be continually maintained in order to keep your home safe and comfortable for everyone. Consider calling a HVAC expert to inspect your ductwork if you notice any of the following issues:
If one or more rooms in your house never seem to be at the right temperature compared to adjacent rooms, it could mean that there is a blockage somewhere in the duct system. It could also mean that your HVAC system has been struggling to get the blocked-off room to the right temperature, wasting both energy and money.
Poor Air Quality
If you notice particles of dust and other debris coming out of a vent, have it inspected by a professional. The particles could be due to a clogged air filter or leaks in the ductwork. Either way, this is a sign of poor air quality in your home and it should be checked out before it causes respiratory problems.
If you or somebody in your household who is allergic to dust, mold, or other airborne particles has been sneezing or coughing more than usual, call a professional right away. Outside irritants can easily be sucked into ducts through leaks, or the HVAC system could be spreading the substance from a source in your home via the ductwork.
If you have recently had a construction or redecorating project performed in your home, consider scheduling an inspection, just as a precaution. Whether you’ve had new carpet put down, a room repainted, or a Jacuzzi installed, construction projects can introduce countless hazards to your ductwork that can spread through your home, from sawdust and mold to fibers and even rodents, if your interior was left exposed during the project.
