All of the air you breathe in your home passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and circulate air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants circulate through your ducts and into the air you breathe. 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 they need it?
With the air in your home’s system recirculating approximately 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to accumulate inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should make an appointment to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC considers numerous factors, including type of weather in Hamilton, to decide if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also consider other variables, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The health of your family will also be factored in. Take for example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s even more important for pollutants to be taken out of your indoor air.
The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for establishing 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 from or built up on your air register. At Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC, our professionals will discuss 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 smoothly and freely throughout your home.
