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 move 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 recommended to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when it’s time?
With the air in your home’s system recirculating about 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 Brandon Heating and Plumbing takes into consideration a number of factors, including the weather in Brandon, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also consider other variables, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. For instance, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s crucial for pollutants to be taken out of your indoor air.
The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for defining 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 Brandon Heating and Plumbing, our professionals will talk through 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.
