When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Air Quality

Before you breathe it in, all the air 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 move 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 needed. How often is recommended to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when it’s time?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating an average 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to gather 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 E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service considers a number of factors, including the weather in East Bernard, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also weigh other factors, like whether you’ve done any renovations 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 removed from your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for establishing when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you might have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming from or built up on your air register. At E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service, 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 smoothly and freely throughout your home.
