When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Air Quality

Your home’s ducts are the trail for all the air that you’re taking in. In fact, your ducts can be equated to the lungs of your home. Along with taking in and distributing air around your home, they are also taking in pollutants. Things like pet dander, pollen and dust all pass through your ducts and will find their way into the air you’re breathing. This is why pro duct cleaning is so important. So how do you know when you should have your ducts cleaned?

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association advises that you get your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your circumstances. There are a number of factors the team at Air Dynamics Inc contemplates when debating when to have your ducts cleaned based on the circumstances in San Angelo. Everyday life generates contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander. There are also climate factors to consider along with any current home renovations. Also, looking at if anyone in your home is experiencing allergies or asthma is important, as pollutants in your indoor air can worsen these conditions. The air in your home’s system is usually recirculated 5–7 times a day, with that many more chances for pollutants to fester inside your duct work.

The Environmental Protection Agency also offers a few propsals about when it’s time to arrange a duct cleaning: if you think or know you have seen mold inside your ducts, if you’ve noticed a vermin infestation or identify rodents exiting or entering your ductwork, or if you see visible confirmation of dust from your air register. The experts at Air Dynamics Inc would be happy to talk you through all of these issues and assist you through the procedure to see if you could profit from a duct cleaning.

Although the name suggests it, a duct cleaning doesn’t just clean your ducts. A qualified duct cleaning remembers every piece of your system that air passes through. A clean system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep up with your thermostat. You’ll use less energy and cause less deterioration on your system.
