Putting Your Home’s Ducts in a Row

While homeowners and heating contractors understandably focus on your home’s HVAC efficiency, one area that is often overlooked is your home’s ducts. Your HVAC ducts provide the conduit connecting your furnace and air conditioner to every room in your home. And the internal condition of your home’s hundreds of feet of ducting impact the air quality within your home – the air that you and your family breathe.

Galvanized HVAC ducts and their metallic appearing, flexible duct cousins may appear rather benign, but these same ducts can be home to not only dust, pollen, and debris, but to mold, fungi, and bacteria as well. During construction and renovation, dust and debris are pulled into your home’s HVAC system. Some of the dust, pollen, and debris are trapped by furnace filters, but no furnace filter can trap 100% of dust and debris. Over time, this same dust and debris begins to accumulate in your ductwork, becoming the perfect breeding ground for mold, fungi, and bacteria. And if you have pets at home, the addition of pet hair and dander can make life difficult for family members with allergies and breathing disorders. If you’ve noticed family members sneezing when your home’s HVAC operates, it’s likely that all of this accumulated “stuff” in your ducts is the source of their discomfort.
