In the winter and summer months a home's HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) systems are put to good use.
January is the perfect month to replace disposable filters or wash permanent ones in your home's HVAC or humidifier systems. Filters should be regularly replaced or washed when use is high or during peak seasons.
The vents are overly susceptible to dust, dirt, pet hairs, and other particles that float through the air.
Vacuuming heat ducts helps clean your home's HVAC system and can help with any problems brought on by indoor pollutants, mold, pollen or anything else that finds its way into an air duct.
January is also a good time to check for any leaks in your home's forced air heat ducts.
