When should you have your ducts cleaned?

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 spread through your ducts and into your air. 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 make an appointment to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. contemplates several factors, including climate conditions in Denver, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also bear in mind other variables, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The well-being 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 removed from your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for determining 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 Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., 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 move more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
