When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Your home’s ducts are the trail for all the air that you’re inhaling. In fact, your ducts can be paralleled to the lungs of your home. Along with taking in and supplying air within your home, they are also taking in pollutants. Things like pet dander, pollen and dust all pass through your ducts and will travel into the air you’re breathing. This is why professional duct cleaning is so important. So how do you know when you should have your ducts cleaned?

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association suggests that you get your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your circumstances. There are several factors the team at Tri County Air Care LLC takes into account when thinking about when to have your ducts cleaned based on the circumstances in Dallas. Everyday life creates contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander. There are also climate factors to consider along with any new home renovations. Also, looking at if anyone in your home is experiencing allergies or asthma is important, as pollutants in your indoor air can aggravate these conditions. The air in your home’s system is normally recirculated 5–7 times a day, with that many more occasions for pollutants to fester inside your duct work.

The Environmental Protection Agency also offers a few propsals about when it’s time to plan a duct cleaning: if you suspect or know you have noticed mold inside your ducts, if you’ve recognized a vermin infestation or spot rodents exiting or entering your ductwork, or if you see visible proof of dust from your air register. The pros at Tri County Air Care LLC would be happy to talk you through all of these things and assist you through the work to see if you could benefit from a duct cleaning.

Although the name suggests it, a duct cleaning doesn’t just clean your ducts. A qualified duct cleaning cleans every component of your system that air passes over. A clean system doesn’t have to operate as hard to keep up with your thermostat. You’ll exhaust less energy and cause less wear and tear on your system.

If anyone in your home is suffering from the allergies hanging around in Dallas or you’ve observed any of the warning signs in your duct work, it’s time to start contemplating duct cleaning.
