  • Unexplained Headaches & Illnesses: If your family seems to suffer from regular headaches, chest congestion, sinus issues, and other respiratory ailments, it could be used by allergens in your ductwork. While you should discuss the problem with your doctor, consulting with the company that does your furnace repair to look into duct cleaning is also a good idea.
  • Clogged Air Filters: Part of your bi-annual cleaning routine should be changing out the filters on your heating and cooling unit. If your filters accumulate an unreasonable amount of dirt, hair, and debris, it's a good indication that similar material is collecting in the ducts of your home.
