    When was the last time you double-checked your ducts for cleanliness? The majority of people ignore their ducts because they believe they are clean enough. Your ducts, on the other hand, begin to accumulate trash, insects, and even vermin such as rats and mold with time. Apart from just blowing all of those impurities into your home every time your HVAC system is turned on, these elements can block your vents, making them less efficient. As a result, you’ll have to pay extra to cool or heat your building.

    Every two to five years, the average duct system should be cleaned. You can extend the duration between professional cleanings if your system is well-maintained and your filters are replaced twice a year. If your system hasn’t been cleaned in more than three years and has been active on your property, it’s time to clean it. Even a single season can cause your system to become less efficient than it was when it was first installed due to dust and dirt buildup.
