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 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 you should call for an appointment?

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 schedule to have your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your home environment. The team at Cool Power LLC takes into consideration a number of factors, including the weather in Hauppauge, to figure out if your ducts need cleaned. Contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander are a part of everyday life. We also weigh other things, like whether you’ve done any construction in your home recently. The healthiness 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 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 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 Cool Power LLC , 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 move more effortlessly and freely throughout your home.
