How Often Should I Schedule Duct Cleaning Services?

Your duct system branches out from the centralized HVAC unit. A fan from the unit blows conditioned air (either hot or cold) through the ducts. It allows you to achieve the temperature you want in your entire home very quickly. As a side effect, however, the ducts see a lot of dust and debris that build up over time. If they’re not periodically cleaned, that dust will spread throughout your home, lowering the quality of the air and increasing the risk of colds and allergic attacks. In the worst cases, it can actively clog the ducts and reduce air flow from your HVAC system. Here in Franklin, duct cleaning services are available to scour your ducts of all that debris, though the scheduling of such a session could vary significantly depending upon your circumstances. “How often should I schedule duct cleaning services?” We’ve provided a few brief guidelines below.

As a general rule, you should plan for a duct cleaning session at least once every three years in order to keep your ducts clear of debris and improve your indoor air quality. That number can vary depending upon the circumstances of your home. In the first case, you should roughly gauge how much dust and dirt gets into your home. If you have a lot of pets, for instance, they probably have hair and dander that pass through the ducts. A household with a lot of pets will need to have their ducts cleaned more regularly than one without. The same can be said if you have children who play outside a lot (tracking in dust and dirt when they come in) or you yourself participate in a lot of outdoor activities (or have a job that involves working outdoors).  On the other hand, if you have a filtration system in your AC unit, or you don’t have pets or track in a lot of dirt. You might not need to schedule a cleaning as often.
