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 spread through your ducts and into the air you breathe. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so necessary. How often is normal to have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when it’s time?
With the air in your home’s system recirculating approximately 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 Miller Climate Control LLC considers several factors, including climate conditions in Georgetown, to decide 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 construction in your home recently. The well-being 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 taken out of your indoor air.
The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for establishing 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 out of or built up on your air register. At Miller Climate Control LLC, 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 flow more efficiently and freely throughout your home.
