When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Air Quality

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 it’s time?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating approximately 5–7 times daily, 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 Superior Comfort Systems considers numerous factors, including the weather in Hendersonville, 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 renovations recently. The health of your family will also be factored in. Take for example, 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 determining 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 from or built up on your air register. At Superior Comfort Systems, 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 circulate more efficiently and freely throughout your home.
