When should you have your ducts cleaned?

Your home’s ducts are the trail for all the air that you’re inhaling. In fact, your ducts can be compared 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 pass through your ducts and will make their way into the air you’re inhaling. This is why pro 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 circumstances. There are several factors the team at JonAire Inc considers when debating when to have your ducts cleaned based on the environment in Las Vegas. Everyday life generates contaminants like dust, chemicals and pet dander. There are also climate factors to consider along with any recent 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 aggravate 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 accumulate inside your duct work.

The Environmental Protection Agency also offers a few suggestions about when it’s time to schedule a duct cleaning: if you believe or know you have noticed mold inside your ducts, if you’ve seen a vermin infestation or spot rodents exiting or entering your ductwork, or if you see visible evidence of dust from your air register. The pros at JonAire Inc would be happy to talk you through all of these issues and assist 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 trained duct cleaning takes into account every part of your system that air passes over. A clean system doesn’t have to labor as hard to keep pace with your thermostat. You’ll waste less energy and cause less wear and tear on your system.

If anyone in your home is experiencing the allergies hanging around in Las Vegas or you’ve detected any of the cautionary signs in your duct work, it’s time to start considering duct cleaning.
