One of the downsides with a forced air system for heating your home is that you have to deal with ductwork. All the air from your HVAC unit needs to travel through ducts to get to all the rooms of your home, and this can lead to problems with air quality. Over time, dust and other particles can build up inside of your ducts, and there could even be mold or bacteria growing, causing a health hazard.
Since you will be unable to access the majority of your ducts to clean them, what can you do? Fortunately, there are professional duct-cleaning services out there that can help you out. They have the equivalent of a giant vacuum cleaner for hooking up to your HVAC system which will clean the ducts out. They will also make sure that the system is treated with antibacterial and antifungal chemicals to prevent future growth and make sure that you have clean, healthy air to breathe.
