Now, what about your air ducts?
The ductwork in your Ames home plays a vital role in how well your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system performs. Yet, because those ducts are hidden, homeowners tend to neglect them.
We often go to homes where the equipment is brand new, but the ductwork is poorly maintained. Why does it matter? Over time, dust and debris accumulate in those ducts. Neglected ductwork also invites pet dander, mold, dust mites—even vermin.
Keep in mind the air you breathe travels through these ducts. Your indoor air quality IAQ greatly depends on the condition of your ductwork.
Our team at C and K specializes in restoring ductwork. We take pressurized readings to pinpoint any leaks or tears that allow airflow to escape. Our powerful vacuums, blowers, and brushes can remove all the debris accumulated in your ductwork for you to enjoy fresh, clean air.
Why Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?
When leaks and tears form in your ductwork, airflow escapes and contaminants infiltrate. The US Department of Energy (DOE) estimates the average duct system loses up to 40 percent of the airflow created by your HVAC system. That’s a lot of money slipping through those cracks.
What about your HVAC equipment? Clogged air ducts make it harder for your furnace and air conditioner to do their jobs. Your system has to stay on longer to reach target temperatures, shortening the service life of the equipment.
What about your health? Compromised air quality can trigger respiratory illnesses such as allergies and asthma. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) consistently ranks indoor air quality among the top five environmental risks to our health.
Think your ducts may have sprung a leak? Here are some giveaways:
- You noticed an uptick in your utility bills.
- Rooms are more difficult to heat or cool down.
- Some rooms are muggy or chilly—never quite the right temperature.
- Your system keeps cycling on and off without reaching target temperatures.

How Often Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?
The National Air Ducts Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends cleaning your ducts every three years on average. Doing so helps keep your HVAC system operating at peak efficiency and contributes to lower energy bills. Regular maintenance, such as annual tune-ups, also plays a critical role in helping you get the most value from your HVAC system.
You should consider getting your ducts cleaned more often if:
- You recently had some work done, such as a remodeling project or addition.
- You have pets or someone who smokes in your home.
- Someone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma.
- You detect signs of mold or vermin in your ducts.
