When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Air Quality

The air you breathe in your home all passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and circulate air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants move through your ducts and into your air. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so important. 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 about 5–7 times a day, pollutants have opportunities to gather 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 Cooler Tymes LLC takes into consideration numerous factors, including the weather in Litchfield Park, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also consider other things, like whether you’ve done any renovations 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 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 from or built up on your air register. At Cooler Tymes LLC, our professionals will discuss 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 flow more efficiently and freely throughout your home.
