When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Air Quality

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 spread 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 they need it?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating an average 5–7 times each 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 Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. considers several factors, including the weather in Anaheim, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also weigh other variables, 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 crucial for pollutants to be taken out of 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 Eco Fresh HVAC Inc., 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 move more efficiently and freely throughout your home.
