All of the air you breathe 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 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 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 approximately 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 Paso Robles Heating and Air contemplates a number of factors, including the weather in Paso Robles, to decide if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also consider other variables, like whether you’ve done any construction in 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 extra important for pollutants to be reduced in your indoor air.
The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for determining 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 Paso Robles Heating and Air, our professionals will talk through 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 flow more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
