What’s Lurking in Your Air Ducts?

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) units are designed to maintain comfortable temperatures. They can be adjusted using either a manual or programmable thermostat. The conditioned air, whether heated or cooled, travels throughout your home through a system of air ducts. Over time, these air ducts can accumulate substantial amounts of dust and potentially even harmful microorganisms, such as mold, making air duct cleaning necessary.

Mold is a frequent problem in North Carolina homes due to the state’s relative humidity (RH), which according to the National Weather Service, averages about 70 percent. Making sure that your home is adequately ventilated can help prevent mold growth. Another common issue that can lead to the formation of mold results from flooding or water damage that is not quickly mitigated.

If you or a member of your family suffers from allergies or asthma, then you may want to strongly consider having your air ducts inspected for visible signs of mold growth or pest infestations. If there is a mold problem, you may also smell a musty odor emanating from the vents. Having your ductwork cleaned after home renovations, as these projects often result in a substantial amount of dust, is also recommended.

An essential home maintenance task that you should do to help maintain the performance and efficiency of your HVAC unit is to change the air filters routinely.
