Your air ducts are one of the most important systems in your home, and if the ducts are poorly sealed or not insulated they are likely contributing to higher energy bills. Your home's duct system is a branching network of tubes in the ceilings, floors, and walls; they carry the conditioned air from your home's furnace and central air conditioner to each room. Ducts are made of sheet metal, fiberglass, and sometimes a hard cardboard material in older homes. Ducts that leak heated or cooled air into non living spaces can add hundreds or thousands of dollars a year to your heating and cooling bills. Insulating ducts in unconditioned spaces is usually very cost effective.
The sealing of your ducts to prevent leaks is even more important if the ducts are located in an unconditioned area such as an vented crawlspace or attic.

Here is what the United States EPA says about Duct Cleaning:
You should consider having the air ducts in your home cleaned if:
There is substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface (e.g., sheet metal) ducts or on other components of your heating and cooling system. There are several important points to understand concerning mold detection in heating and cooling systems.
If any of the conditions identified above exists, it usually suggests one or more underlying causes. Prior to any cleaning, retrofitting, or replacing of your ducts, the cause or causes must be corrected or else the problem will likely recur.
Unusual noises. High energy bills. Heat is on, but you’re shivering.
