All of the air you breathe in your home 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 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 approximately 5–7 times a day, pollutants have opportunities to build up 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 Goode Bros AC & Heating considers a number of factors, including the weather in Longview, to decide if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also bear in mind other variables, like whether you’ve done any work on 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 even more 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 might have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming through or built up on your air register. At Goode Bros AC & Heating, 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 move more efficiently and freely throughout your home.
