You're probably thinking, their dirty!  In reality, it goes a little deeper than that. The combined interior space of your air duct system is equivalent to an extra room in your house that never gets cleaned, dusted or vacuumed.

Dirty air ducts are a major contributor of indoor air pollution. Airborne pollutants are pulled into the duct system every time the heating and cooling system is started. The contaminants build up over time creating an ideal breeding ground for fungi, mold, bacteria , pollutants, allergens and don't forget pet dander, dirt, construction debris and the dreaded dust mite.

Biological contaminants include bacteria, molds, mildew, viruses, animal dander and cat saliva, house dust, mites, cockroaches, and pollen. (see more about Asthma triggers at www.epa.gov/asthma). There are many sources of these pollutants. Pollens originate from plants; viruses are transmitted by people and animals; bacteria are carried by people, animals, and soil and plant debris; and household pets are sources of saliva and animal dander. The protein in urine from rats and mice is a potent allergen. When it dries, it can become airborne.
Contaminated central air handling systems can become breeding grounds for mold, mildew, and other sources of biological contaminants and can then distribute these contaminants through the home.

Mold, dust mites, pet dander, and pest droppings can trigger asthma. Biological contaminants, including molds and pollens can cause allergic reactions for a significant portion of the population. Tuberculosis, measles, staphylococcus infections, Legionella and influenza are known to be transmitted by air.

Industry standards recommend that you have your air ducts inspected every 2 years, and have them cleaned every 3-5 years. This will vary with the conditions in your home environment.

By having your air ducts cleaned regularly, you will help improve the indoor air quality in your home, increasing the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, which may reduce your energy bills.
