The air you breathe in your home all 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 spread 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 you should call for an appointment?
With the air in your home’s system recirculating approximately 5–7 times each day, pollutants have opportunities to build up inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should schedule to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Anderson Heating & A/C contemplates a number of factors, including the weather in Carson City, to decide if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also weigh other factors, like whether you’ve done any construction in 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 extra important for pollutants to be reduced in your indoor air.
The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for defining 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 Anderson Heating & A/C, 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.
