When should you have your ducts cleaned?

December 10, 2020

The air you breathe in your home all passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and push air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants move through your ducts and into your air. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so necessary. How often should you 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 build up 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 Titan Heating & Air Conditioning contemplates a number of factors, including type of weather in Central Point, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also weigh other factors, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The health of your family will also be factored in. For instance, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s extra important for pollutants to be removed from your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for defining when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you might have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming through or built up on your air register. At Titan Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 circulate more smoothly and freely throughout your home.
