When should you have your ducts cleaned?12/22/2016Your home’s ducts are the channel for all the air that you’re breathing. In fact, your ducts can be paralleled to the lungs of your home. Along with taking in and distributing air within your home, they are also trapping pollutants. Things like pet dander, pollen and dust all move through your ducts and will make their way into the air you’re breathing. This is why professional duct cleaning is so important. So how do you know when you should have your ducts cleaned? The National Air Duct Cleaners Association suggests that you get your air ducts cleaned every 3–5 years, depending on your environment. There are many factors the team at Ken Parker Service Inc takes into account when thinking about when to have your ducts cleaned based on the conditions in Greenville. Everyday life produces contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander. There are also climate factors to bear in mind along with any current home renovations. Also, looking at if anyone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma is important, as pollutants in your indoor air can worsen these conditions. The air in your home’s system is normally recirculated 5–7 times a day, with that many more chances for pollutants to build up inside your duct work. The Environmental Protection Agency also offers a few propsals about when it’s time to plan a duct cleaning: if you think or know you have spotted mold inside your ducts, if you’ve seen a vermin infestation or identify rodents exiting or entering your ductwork, or if you see visible confirmation of dust from your air register. The pros at Ken Parker Service Inc would be happy to talk you through all of these issues and support you through the procedure to see if you could benefit from a duct cleaning. Although the name suggests it, a duct cleaning doesn’t just clean your ducts. A qualified duct cleaning remembers every component of your system that air passes through. A clean system doesn’t have to operate as hard to keep working with your thermostat. You’ll exhaust less energy and cause less wear and tear on your system. If anyone in your home is affected by the allergies drifting around in Greenville or you’ve observed any of the warning signs in your duct work, it’s time to start thinking about duct cleaning.
