Dirty Air Ducts?

Modern gas furnaces depend on a system of ducts to distribute hot air throughout your house. Over time, dust can build up inside those ducts. We live in a dusty part of the country, and over time that can create severe problems with your indoor air quality.  Even worse, dirty air ducts can affect your furnace’s ability to heat the household, making it work harder to do its job.   If you need duct cleaning, give Air Conditioning Guys a call today.

In the first place, air flow through the ducts can be restricted when the build-up gets high enough. Reduced air flow means that the heated air doesn’t circulate through your home as quickly as it should be. This slows the heating process and forces your system to work harder to get to the temperatures you called for. That means higher monthly heating bills as well as increased wear and tear on the components.

What Happens?

Dirty air ducts can also lead to clogged air filters, which can cause your heating system to heat less effectively. Really dirty filters can restrict air flow so much your furnace will shut down to prevent overheating! If you have to change your furnace filters often because they keep getting dirty, it is a good sign you need your ducts cleaned.

Furthermore, dust and dirt can lead to poor air quality. This can exacerbate allergies and increase irritation in the nose and throat, which you certainly don’t want to accompany a cozy temperature.
