Regular servicing of your ducted heating system will ensure your unit is running hygienically, efficiently and most importantly, safely. But all too often ducted heating repair and servicing is one of those household jobs that can often be forgotten. Year after year can go by without any maintenance or servicing to your unit, and during this time, dust and debris build up in the extensive subterranean ducts in your home. And we’re not just talking about the odd stray crayon that’s found its way into the vent. In some cases, mold and vermin may be lurking down there too!
Unfortunately, this ‘out of sight, out of mind’ approach means many households are exposed to allergy causing particles generated by their grimy ducted heating systems and this can lead to serious health issues for you and your loved ones. And in the most serious cases, neglected gas ducted heating systems can lead to Carbon Monoxide leaks which can be fatal.

Some common health issues caused by neglected ducted heating systems:
· Allergic reactions: coughing, wheezing and skin irritations caused by dust particles in the system filling the air in the home.
· Respiratory problems: asthma sufferers, children and the elderly are especially vulnerable to polluted air produced by unclean ducted heating systems.
· Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning: this is the most serious of health risks posed by gas appliances that are not properly maintained, serviced or repaired. Because it is odourless, CO gas can leak unnoticed into a home with little warning. Some people are particularly susceptible to CO gas, including young children/infants, the elderly and those with pre-existing health issues such as anaemia and heart disease. Ducted heating systems that are faulty and not professionally checked can leak CO gas and this can cause sudden acute illness or worse, death.
