When should you have your ducts cleaned?

All of the air you breathe 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 circulate 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 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 Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC contemplates a number of factors, including type of weather in East Peoria, to figure out 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 crucial for pollutants to be taken out of your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for establishing 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 out of or built up on your air register. At Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC, 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 flow more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
