Is Dirty Ductwork Hindering My Heater?

*DuAll Heating & Cooling no longer offers duct cleaning services. Take a look at our other indoor air quality services to find the best solution for your needs.

A lot of homeowners use forced air heating systems in order to warm their homes effectively and quickly. The problem is  that the ductwork that these systems use can sometimes wind up with considerable amounts of dirt, dust, and other pollutants therein. This can lead to a number of problems within the household, including the spreading of those pollutants throughout one’s living space. This can make life tough for those with allergies and respiratory issues, as it can aggravate their symptoms. It can also hinder the performance of one’s HVAC system, though. That is why professional duct cleaning in Bolingbrook, IL is worth your consideration. 

How Does Dirty Ductwork Hamper Heating?

You may not have so much pollutant buildup in your air ducts that it is impossible for your system to push air throughout those ducts, but that doesn’t mean that dirty air ducts won’t make it harder for your heater to do its job. First of all, dirty ductwork will likely lead to frequently clogged air filters. If your air filters are clogged, but you don’t realize it because they were changed fairly recently, your heater is going to have a harder time than it should in forcing air through that filter. This will make it harder for the system to heat your home effectively, and you’ll likely wind up paying more money for a weaker heating performance.

Additionally, it is possible for pollutants to enter the system and to build up on sensitive components therein. When this happens, your heater may be falsely triggered to shut down. It may begin to experience issues with its burners and combustion system, as well. Plus, the extra wear and tear that it will face as it works harder in order to heat your home can really take a toll over time.
