Improve your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) and lower your energy costs by cleaning or replacing old, dirty, and damaged air ducts. If left unattended for too long, air ducts begin to accumulate excessive buildups of dust, dirt, and possibly even mold. One of the best ways to improve your IAQ is to get an air duct repair job or an air duct replacement to ensure your system is not circulating dirt and other air pollutants throughout your home.

Below are some signs that you might need an air duct repair or air duct replacement:
You can’t remember the last time your air ducts were cleaned.
If it’s been that long, it’s pretty safe to say you could benefit from having your ducts checked out and cleaned. The longer you wait, the more buildup and clogging you’ll have to deal with in the future.
There is a buildup of dirt, dust, lint, etc. on the inside of your vents.
Get a screwdriver and take the register (vent) off the wall or floor where it’s attached to your AC duct. If the inside of the register is visibly dirty, dusty, etc., that means your ducts are likely just as bad — or worse. This is a common sign that you need an air duct repair.
Your compressor fan’s blades are visibly dirty, covered in dust.
If the lone source of your family’s cold air is visibly dirty, it’s fair to assume that the unit is circulating dirty (albeit cold) air throughout your entire home whenever the system is running. Whatever is gunking up your fan is likely to be building up in your ducts, as well.
Moldy or musty odor filling up your home.
If your ducts are filled with mold, that would explain why your AC system seems to be emitting a musty smell throughout the house. Mold can exist in a number of places within your AC system, and if it’s coming from your ducts, you’ll want that fixed ASAP.
Your air filter frequently clogs.
If your air filter is clogging up with dirt, dust, and other air pollutants more quickly than you are used to, there might be a buildup in your ducts causing this. The best way to address an overly-clogged air filter is to see if cleaning the ducts will help.
