When should you clean the air ducts in your home?

Heating and Air Conditioning Repair in Destin, Fort Walton, etc.

The air ducts in your home are the pathways for the crisp cool air or toasty warm heat to move throughout your home. Over the years, or if you have certain factors we will discuss below, the air ducts can become dusty and full of contaminants. The HVAC system (or heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system) acts as the lungs for your home and, according to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), through normal occupation we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated on average 5 to 7 times per day, says NADCA.

There are also factors that can contribute greatly to the contaminants in the duct work of your home.
If you have any of these conditions in your home, it is recommended by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to have your air ducts cleaned:

  • – Mold growth is visible in your home or framework
  • – Air ducts are infested with vermin, e.g. (rodents or insects)
  • – Ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris

However, the EPA does recommend that air ducts only be cleaned as needed.
