When should you have your ducts cleaned?

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 you breathe. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so important. 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 about 5–7 times a day, pollutants have opportunities to gather inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should schedule to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc contemplates numerous factors, including the weather in Saint Petersburg, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also bear in mind other variables, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The health 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 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 out of or built up on your air register. At Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc, 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 smoothly and freely throughout your home.
