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 necessary. 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 a day, pollutants have opportunities to build up 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 Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling considers a number of factors, including climate conditions in Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also consider other things, like whether you’ve done any work on your home 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 removed from 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 through or built up on your air register. At Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling, 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.
