Is Duct Cleaning Necessary?

Is Duct Cleaning Necessary?

We’ve seen a lot of questions out there on air duct cleaning, wondering if the service is a scam or waste of money. We understand the skepticism because it requires enlisting professional help, which can be both timely and costly. We’re here to put the rumors to rest and give you our honest answer. Air duct cleaning is not necessary on a regular basis like HVAC maintenance; however, we offer this service because there are times where it is needed. At Legacy Air, our customers are our number one priority, and we would never deceive you for financial gain.

Today, we’re going over when you should sign up for this service and why it’s important.

When should you get your air ducts cleaned?

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends having the air ducts in your home cleaned if:

  • There is substantial visible mold growth inside the ducts or on other components of your HVAC system.

  • The ducts are infested with vermin, rodents, or insects.

  • There is an excessive amount of dust and debris in the ducts.

If you believe you are experiencing any of these issues but are hesitant to call a professional, you can perform a quick investigation yourself. Start by inspecting your duct register or grille — is it discolored or covered in dust? Next, remove the cover and use a rag to wipe at the sides of the inside. Did it come out filthy? If you answered yes, go ahead and consult a trusted HVAC company. While there’s no substantial evidence of duct cleaning improving air quality, clogged ducts can impact the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, which can be unsafe and pricey.
