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 you breathe. When you realize this, it’s easy to see why professional duct cleaning is so necessary. 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 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 Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning takes into consideration several factors, including climate conditions in Bishop, to determine if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of normal life. We also weigh other things, like whether you’ve done any renovations 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 crucial for pollutants to be taken out of 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 from or built up on your air register. At Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 circulate more smoothly and freely throughout your home.
