If you’re like most Americans, you spend a lot of your time inside protected from the elements and issues like smog. However, indoor air can also be cause for concern. Indoor air quality problems are often due to the dust, dirt, and pet dander that occupy dirty air ducts. Below are four signs you could need duct cleaning for your Viera, FL, home.
Higher Energy Bills
It’s normal for your energy bills to fluctuate some on a month-to-month basis, but if you have stable weather and your bills are still going up, you may have an HVAC issue. If you don’t have new fees or service charges on your utility bill and you haven’t used more energy, then you may need your ducts cleaned.
House Is Always Dusty
While encountering dust is a natural consequence, you should only need to take a feather duster to the home once a month. However, if it seems as though dust and pet hair is taking over and there’s no change in your cleaning schedule, there’s a chance that dust is building up in your vents.
Unpleasant Odor from Ducts
If you notice unpleasant odors from your ducts, such as a musty odor, you may have some dust or bacterial growth. Both of these cause respiratory issues, so it’s best to have a technician address it as soon as possible, at your next maintenance appointment. If you need to schedule maintenance services, give us a call.
There Are Health Issues
While some members of the household may have allergies and asthma, poor indoor air quality from dirty air ducts makes allergies and asthma worse. Not only that, but some indoor air pollution sources cause more than just a headache or throat irritation. Having us clean your ducts goes a long way towards controlling allergies and asthma.
