When should you have your ducts cleaned?

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 circulate 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 should you have your ducts cleaned and how will you know when it’s time?

With the air in your home’s system recirculating about 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to gather inside your duct work. According to The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, you should make an appointment to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc takes into consideration numerous factors, including climate conditions in West Palm Beach, to decide if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of daily life. We also consider other variables, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The well-being of your family will also be factored in. For example, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s even more important for pollutants to be reduced in 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 out of or built up on your air register. At Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc, 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 efficiently and freely throughout your home.
