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 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 the air you breathe. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so important. How often is normal 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 about 5–7 times daily, pollutants have opportunities to build up 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 Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning contemplates several factors, including the weather in Upland, 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 construction in your home recently. The healthiness of your family will also be factored in. Take 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 establishing when it’s time for a duct cleaning: if you think you have mold inside your ducts or a vermin infestation, or if you see dust coming from or built up on your air register. At Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning, 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.
