When should you have your ducts cleaned? Posted December 22, 2016 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 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 your air. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so important. How often is recommended to 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 schedule to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning contemplates several factors, including the weather in West Valley, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also weigh other variables, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The well-being of your family will also be factored in. For instance, 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 determining 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 out of or built up on your air register. At Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 move more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
