It is common for vermin such as insects or rodents to make their homes inside a ductwork system. This can create a blockage in your system and spread germs from droppings or dead pests. If you notice or hear pests crawling in or out of any part of your HVAC system, schedule an air duct inspection and cleaning as soon as possible.

During a scheduled AC maintenance service, a technician may recommend duct cleaning. That is because dirty ductwork can impact your system’s efficiency as it heats and cools your home.
As dust and debris build in your system, they can block passages and make it difficult for air to travel through. When air filters and ducts are clogged up, your air conditioner and heater need to work twice as hard. That means wasted energy for your home and wasted money for you.
Many factors contribute to the condition of the interior of your air ducts—from daily wear and tear to improper installation and prolonged exposure to moisture or contaminants. A thorough duct cleaning might be just the thing your home needs.
