When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Air Quality

All of the air you breathe in your home 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 the air in your home. 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 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 Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. contemplates numerous factors, including climate conditions in Muskogee, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also bear in mind other things, 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 removed from 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 through or built up on your air register. At Hix Air Conditioning Service, 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 move more efficiently and freely throughout your home.
