When should you have your ducts cleaned? Posted December 22, 2016 The air you breathe in your home all passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and push air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants circulate 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 should you have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when it’s time? With the air in your home’s system recirculating approximately 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to accumulate inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should make an appointment to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Paso Robles Heating and Air takes into consideration several factors, including climate conditions in Paso Robles, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also consider other factors, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. Take for example, 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 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 Paso Robles Heating and Air, 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 move more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
