When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Air Quality

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 circulate through your ducts and into the air in your home. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so needed. How often is normal to 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 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 House of Heating Incorporated takes into consideration a number of factors, including climate conditions in Marshfield, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also bear in mind 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 reduced in 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 out of or built up on your air register. At House of Heating Incorporated, 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 circulate more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
