Ducting is what carries the air from the unit to the rooms of your home. The air is drawn in from the outside where you can be sure there are pollutants, dust, mold, and allergens present. The air is passed through the filters, which are not regularly changed will not perform sufficiently. The air travels along the ducting, leaving behind any debris that settles. Just think if you leave your heating & air conditioning system unattended and uncleaned, only so much debris can be deposited before it begins to be picked up then carried by the passing air. This is what enters your home and the lungs of your family members.
The EPA recommends having air ducts cleaned only as needed. That is, when there is substantial visible mold growth inside, if the ducts are infested with rodents or insects, or if they’re clogged with excessive amounts of debris. Studies show 6 out of 10 homes are hazardous to their occupants health. Every time your air conditioner or heating system is on, airborne contaminants are being drawn into your air vents.
