When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Before you breathe it in, all the air 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 needed. 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 an average 5–7 times a 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 Temp Air System Inc considers numerous factors, including type of weather in La Puente, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also weigh other things, like whether you’ve done any work on 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 even more 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 out of or built up on your air register. At Temp Air System Inc, our professionals will chat about 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 efficiently and freely throughout your home.
