When should you have your ducts cleaned? Posted December 22, 2016 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 spread through your ducts and into your air. 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 an average 5–7 times a day, pollutants have opportunities to accumulate 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 Brogan Heating & AC Inc contemplates a number of factors, including the weather in Rochester, 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 factors, like whether you’ve done any construction in 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 even more important for pollutants to be removed from your indoor air. The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for determining 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 Brogan Heating & AC Inc, 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 move more efficiently and freely throughout your home.
