Think of the HVAC unit as the heart of the heating and cooling system and the duct system as the veins. Much as veins distribute blood,
ducts disburse air that is generated by the main HVAC unit throughout a house. Because air is being continuously circulated, it’s very easy for ducts to accumulate dirt and other buildup. Dirty or improperly installed duct work can lead to a myriad of challenges, including the circulation of unclean air which can cause potential health problems. Poorly designed or improperly cleaned ducts can also impede the airflow that is getting into the house, causing the system to waste energy (because it’s running more often) and raising utility bills unnecessarily. Further, all of these issues could result in larger problems in the future – including the increased potential for substantial, frequent repairs.
