When should you have your ducts cleaned?

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 circulate 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 it’s time?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating about 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 Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC contemplates several factors, including climate conditions in Kingsville, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal 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 reduced in 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 Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC, 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 efficiently and freely throughout your home.
