Buildup, dust, and debris can cause the air conditioner in your McKinney, Texas, home to work less effectively and raise your electric bills. A professional duct cleaning can help to preserve the air quality of your home and increase your energy efficiency. Here’s a look at three signs that you need urgent duct cleaning.

High Electric Bills

If your system seems to be working at its normal pace but your electric bill is high, your system could be working harder to move air throughout your home. One major culprit could be clogged ducts. You can do your best to prevent any blockages in your ducts by changing your filters regularly and keeping the airway near the intake vent clean. This can prevent debris from entering your system and then getting lodged in your ducts. But this doesn’t fix the issue if you already have a clog — only a professional can help with that.

Poor HVAC Performance

If your HVAC system doesn’t seem to be heating or cooling your air like it used to, you might have an obstruction. Since the air can’t flow properly when your ducts aren’t clean, you won’t be able to get your home to the temperature you want. Have a technician look at the mechanical components and ducts to see what’s causing the issue.

Dust on Registers

One of the visible signs of the need for duct cleaning is dust on the registers. If you can see dust on your vent grille, that means that dust is getting into your system, too. You can easily clean the registers from the outside with a vacuum or microfiber cloth, but you need a professional to clean out the ducts from internal dust buildup, too. Otherwise, you are going to face a problem with your indoor air quality.
