When should you have your ducts cleaned? Posted December 22, 2016 Air Quality 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 important. How often is recommended to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when they need it? With the air in your home’s system recirculating about 5–7 times each day, pollutants have opportunities to gather inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should make an appointment to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Dynamic Comfort Solutions considers numerous factors, including the weather in Locust, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also consider other things, like whether you’ve done any renovations recently. The health 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 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 might have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming from or built up on your air register. At Dynamic Comfort Solutions, 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 flow more efficiently and freely throughout your home. If it’s time to start considering duct cleaning in your Locust home, our team at Dynamic Comfort Solutions is here to answer your questions.
