The air you breathe in your home all passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and circulate 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 accumulate 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 Wallpe Heating & Cooling takes into consideration several factors, including climate conditions in Greensburg, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also weigh other things, like whether you’ve done any renovations recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. For instance, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s even more important for pollutants to be reduced in 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 out of or built up on your air register. At Wallpe Heating & Cooling, 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 effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
