When should you have your ducts cleaned?12/22/2016Your home’s ducts are the channel for all the air that you’re inhaling. In fact, your ducts can be paralleled to the lungs of your home. Along with taking in and supplying air around your home, they are also taking in pollutants. Things like pet dander, pollen and dust all move through your ducts and will make their way into the air you’re inhaling. This is why pro duct cleaning is so important. So how do you know when you should have your ducts cleaned? The National Air Duct Cleaners Association suggests that you get your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your environment. There are several factors the team at A2Z Air Inc takes into account when thinking about when to have your ducts cleaned based on the conditions in Boynton Beach. Everyday life creates contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander. There are also climate factors to bear in mind along with any current home renovations. Also, looking at if anyone in your home is experiencing allergies or asthma is important, as pollutants in your indoor air can intensify these conditions. The air in your home’s system is normally recirculated 5–7 times a day, with that many more chances for pollutants to accumulate inside your duct work. The Environmental Protection Agency also offers a few suggestions about when it’s time to plan a duct cleaning: if you believe or know you have noticed mold inside your ducts, if you’ve seen a vermin infestation or identify rodents exiting or entering your ductwork, or if you see visible evidence of dust from your air register. The professionals at A2Z Air Inc would be happy to talk you through all of these things and help you through the procedure to see if you could gain anything from a duct cleaning. Although the name implies it, a duct cleaning doesn’t just clean your ducts. A professional duct cleaning takes into account every part of your system that air passes through. A clean system doesn’t have to operate as hard to keep working with your thermostat. You’ll exhaust less energy and cause less wear and tear on your system.
