When should you have your ducts cleaned? Posted December 22, 2016 The air you breathe in your home all passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and distribute air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants spread through your ducts and into the air in your home. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so important. How often should you have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when you should call for an appointment? With the air in your home’s system recirculating about 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to accumulate inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should arrange to get your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC contemplates a number of factors, including type of weather in Hamilton, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also weigh other factors, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. For example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s crucial for pollutants to be removed from your indoor air. The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for defining when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you think you have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming out of or built up on your air register. At Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC, our professionals will chat about these factors with you and help determine if you could benefit from a duct cleaning. A professional duct cleaning obviously cleans your ducts and the air will circulate more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
