Your Air Ducts Could be Causing Water Damage - Rochester 02770
Have you checked your air ducts recently?
With all of the talk about indoor air quality and ventilation, there’s another important aspect we must consider: what exactly is going on in your air ducts?
Aside from the regular HVAC system functioning, there’s no clear way to know what exactly is going on in your system unless you are regularly maintaining it. And now more than ever, it’s important to make sure everything is functioning properly.
One of the most important things to look for when servicing ducts, aside from any unexpected visitors (i.e. rodents), is the potential for water damage. This is especially important because you don’t want it to lead to mold growth and have mold spores flowing through your ventilation system.
Water in your ducts accumulates when the draining coils aren’t working properly. When these coils aren’t working, the condensation settles in the ducts. This drainage issue could lead to leaks in your ducts and ceilings, and if not addressed, mold growth.
By regularly maintaining and cleaning your air ducts, not only can you prevent water damage, but it’s also a great way to ensure that what you’re breathing is clean and quality air.
