Air ducts are a vital component of your air conditioning/heating unit—and a vital part of ensuring your home has high air quality.
On average, there is often more than 100 feet of ductwork installed throughout your home to support your air conditioning system. Over time, mold, allergens, and dust build up if not cleaned out of the duct system on a fairly regular basis. When running, the air is pulled into and through the vents, cleaned (or conditioned), cooled/heated, and sent back through the air ducts. As part of this process, the installed air filter blocks dust and dirt from recycling through the system—but it's important to remember that even the most efficient air filter is not 100% effective and anything that gets through moves through your air ductwork.
Benefits of Clean Air Ducts
