How Often Should You Clean Your Air Ducts?

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends that homeowners have their HVAC systems maintained every three to five years. However, if your household members are sensitive to contaminants or have respiratory illnesses and use your HVAC system reasonably often, you may want to have your system maintained more frequently.

Why Is It Important To Clean Your Ducts?

Indoor air can become more contaminated than the outdoors because various pollutants circulate through the heating and cooling systems and never quite get filtered out of your home. Cleaning ducts improves general health and comfort at home. Cleaner currents mean fewer days when household members will be out of work or school recovering from allergies or a respiratory illness.

Potential Pollutants In A Home Include:

  • Asbestos
  • Bacteria
  • Pollen
  • Smoke
  • Pet Dander
  • Smog Particles
  • Lint

The Health Benefits Of Cleaning Your Ducts

When systems become dirty or clogged, homeowners may notice residents get bothersome respiratory ailments like runny noses, coughs, or even headaches. Having a cleaning done will reduce pollutants and irritants circulating in the home’s HVAC system, improving the home’s indoor quality, which may significantly reduce symptoms like nasal congestion or sore throats that may have been induced by previously circulating unhealthy particles, allergens, or microbes.

Your System May Need Cleaning If You Notice:

  • Bad Odor From Vents
  • Poor Or Inconsistent Airflow Within Home
  • Rodent & Insect Infestation In Air Ducts
  • Clogged Air Filters
  • Mold/Mildew Within Or Outside HVAC System
