Should I Clean My Air Ducts?

Why should you have your furnace and air ducts cleaned? Do you have allergies? Did you have construction done in your home? Do you notice having to dust more frequently? Are you sneezing more frequently? Do you have pets? Did you m

ove into a home previously occupied by another family? Have you ever had your ducts cleaned before?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions you should have us clean your system!  If you think about it, if you moved into a home that has a forced air system and have not had your air ducts cleaned; you are breathing someone else’s dirt!  I think of it as sleeping in someone else’s bed sheets.  It gives you a very uneasy feeling to think about.

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends that your air ducts should be cleaned every 3-5 years.  Over time contaminants build up and can cause respiratory irritation and also cause your system to run 40% harder than it needs to.

A dirty air duct system can also cause funny smells.  Dust and dirt carries moisture and damp or wet dirt can certainly create an unpleasant smell.  These smells can also be caused by pet dander that has also been ingested by the air duct system.  An important detail to remember is that whatever the system ingests, it will breathe it back out into your home.  Dirty air can be recirculated 5-7 times a day depending on how much you run your system.

Having your air ducts cleaned on a routine basis can also offer peace of mind to know that if you do have a contaminated system, both you and your system will breathe easier knowing it’s clean.  The short answer to “should I clean my air ducts?” is yes!
