When should you have your ducts cleaned?12/22/2016 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 circulate 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 necessary. 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 an average 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 All Seasons Heating & A/C Co takes into consideration numerous factors, including type of weather in Bloomington, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also bear in mind other factors, like whether you’ve done any renovations recently. The healthiness 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 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 suspect you have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming through or built up on your air register. At All Seasons Heating & A/C Co, 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.
