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 your air. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so needed. 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 a 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 Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning contemplates numerous factors, including the weather in Pflugerville, to decide if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also weigh other factors, like whether you’ve done any renovations recently. The health of your family will also be factored in. For example, 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 think you have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming from or built up on your air register. At Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 flow more efficiently and freely throughout your home.
