Before you breathe it in, all the air in your home 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 the air you breathe. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so necessary. How often is normal to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when they need it?
With the air in your home’s system recirculating an average 5–7 times a day, pollutants have opportunities to gather 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 All Seasons Comfort Systems Inc considers a number of factors, including the weather in Reeds Spring, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also weigh other variables, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The well-being 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 removed from 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 All Seasons Comfort Systems Inc, 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 circulate more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
