When should you have your ducts cleaned?

December 10, 2020

All of the air you breathe 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 spread 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 approximately 5–7 times daily, 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 Ronkonkoma, to determine 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 renovations recently. The health 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 determining 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 through or built up on your air register. At Cool Power 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 smoothly and freely throughout your home.
