When should you have your ducts cleaned? Posted December 22, 2016 Air Quality The air you breathe in your home all 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 the air you breathe. 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 approximately 5–7 times a 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 MPC Heating & Cooling contemplates several factors, including type of weather in Chadron, to figure out 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 healthiness of your family will also be factored in. Take for example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s extra important for pollutants to be removed from 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 from or built up on your air register. At MPC Heating & Cooling, 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.
