When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Before you breathe it in, all the air in your home passes through your duct system. The ducts in your home take in and distribute air throughout your home—and in that air there are pollutants. Pet dander, pollen, dust and other pollutants move through your ducts and into the air you breathe. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so needed. 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 daily, 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 Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC contemplates several factors, including the weather in Vancouver, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also bear in mind other factors, like whether you’ve done any work on your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. For instance, if anyone in your home has allergies or asthma, it’s crucial for pollutants to be removed from your indoor air.

The Environmental Protection Agency also has recommendations for establishing 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 Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC, our professionals will talk through 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.
