When should you have your ducts cleaned?

December 10, 2020

All of the air you breathe in your home 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 your air. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so necessary. How often is recommended to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when you should call for an appointment?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating an average 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to accumulate 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 Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning contemplates numerous factors, including climate conditions in Kirkfield Heating, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also weigh other factors, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. 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 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 from or built up on your air register. At Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 circulate more efficiently and freely throughout your home.
