Disadvantages without Ductwork System at Home


Studies show that a typical six-room house can attract up to 40lbs of dust in a year through everyday living. Your ductwork acts as the home’s lungs by taking in air from the environment and passing out that which is in the rooms. While performing its work it generates a lot of contaminants and air pollutants such as dust, dander, and chemicals.

These contaminants get pulled up the system and are re-circulated around 5 to 7 times a day, with time this re-circulation causes a steady buildup of pollutants. Dirty ducts can contribute to serious health problems within the home such as respiratory conditions, autoimmune disorders, and environmental allergies.

Dust, mold, and bacteria accumulate inside the ductwork system and continuously blow inside your home. If not regularly cleaned and maintained the problem gets even worse with time leading to sinus issues, asthma attacks, inflammation, and other related conditions.

Similarly, home dwellers may encounter allergies through pollen grains swirling in the air and entering their lungs. Allergens are also pushed into the vents where they can easily be released onto surfaces of your chairs, tables or other household items.

Frequently Asked Questions: 

Where does the sealant leaking from my ductwork go?

Sealant leakage is a major issue in most Kingwood TX homes and has been ranked as one of the top 3 energy wasters. When this substance spews over it usually accumulates inside the air passages, where it blocks free flow of air. The only way to remove it is through duct cleaning and replacement with a new sealant that does not leak.

How regularly should I clean my ductwork?

Experts recommend that this should be done every 3 to 5 years, be wary of those who recommend more frequent cleanings than what is already mentioned here. Nevertheless, if moving to a new home the process should be done immediately unless you are sure that the previous owner serviced these ducts within the last 3 years.

Likewise, after constructing a new home or doing a remodeling job, it’s likely that the ducts have accumulated debris from drywall dust or other related material. Such building projects also spread sawdust into the home, unless you actively protect the ducts by applying something on top then dust will certainly spread inside. Cleaning should be done immediately after the project is complete. Our technicians are trained to handle all types of ductwork design models.

Why is it important to clean the duct?

A clean ductwork increases its longevity, the system doesn’t have to work very hard to maintain a steady temperature as per your liking. Consequently, less energy is expended leading to enhanced cost-effectiveness.

Contaminants found inside the system impede on efficiency hence shortening the lifespan of your system. If you suspect that mold has grown inside your vents then call us to look at the situation, we will check for unusual odor coming from the air passages.

A dirty ventilation also makes it susceptible to vermin infestation since insects or rodents can easily climb up the system and enter your home. If you notice dark debris on the outside, it means pollutants have been recycled throughout the duct system and this is a clear indication of contamination.
