When should you have your ducts cleaned?12/22/2016 All of the air you breathe in your home 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 circulate through your ducts and into your air. 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 you should call for an appointment? 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 McCune Heating & Cooling takes into consideration numerous factors, including climate conditions in Augusta, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also consider other variables, like whether you’ve done any renovations recently. The well-being 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 reduced in your indoor air. The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for establishing 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 through or built up on your air register. At McCune 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 circulate more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
