The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggest having your ducts cleaned when there are specific reasons for it, such as:
In addition to dust and dirt inside ducts, there are other factors that can increase the need for duct cleaning:
If your ducts look dirty, they probably are. NADCA recommends that dirty HVAC systems be inspected by a certified professional.
According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), as much as 40 pounds of dust is created annually in an average six-room home. The dust, dander and other air pollutants are pulled into the home's heating and air conditioning system and circulated through the air ducts. The contaminated air gets circulated throughout your house every time the heating or cooling system turns on. For people with respiratory health conditions or environmental allergies, these contaminants could make health issues worse. Duct cleaning can reduce the amount of indoor air pollutants in your home's HVAC system.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used to heat and cool a home is wasted. Contaminants in the HVAC system can make it worker harder. A clean heating and cooling system doesn't have to work as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature and uses less energy, which could mean lower heating and cooling costs.
There are simple ways to maintain the health and efficiency of your heating and cooling system:
Check & replace air filters - The air filter should be replaced when the element is visibly dirty. The air filter in a forced-air system should be changed at least four times per year or once per season.
Make sure air ducts are properly sealed & insulated - According to the Environmental Protection Agency, sealing air ducts can reduce the amount of pollutants in your ducts and prevent allergens and contaminants from circulating throughout the house. Leaky ducts can also reduce the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by up to 20 percent. When air ducts are properly sealed, the HVAC system uses less energy, which can lead to savings on utility bills.
