We may not think about it all the time, but our air ducts are almost always working hard to heat or cool your home. Over time, the system can build-up dust, pollen, and other allergens requiring it to be cleaned out. Having your HVAC system regularly cleaned will not only help it run more efficiently but also potentially prevent larger and more expensive problems.

But when is the best time to schedule your duct cleaning?

Once Spring has Sprung

Spring is the best time to get your HVAC system cleaned for several reasons. Firstly, your air conditioning and heat will need to be shut off while the technician does their work. Since spring has a more optimal temperature than the freezing cold winter or smoldering hot summer, your home will be more comfortable while the ducts are being cleaned.

Another reason spring is the ideal time is that it rains often during these months. The rain is a natural way to rid the air or airborne allergens and pollen. Once the rain washes these particles to the ground, you can be sure your ducts will be rid of the debris.

Finally, moisture in the air can cause a big problem for your HVAC system. Once spring and summer hits, the humidity rises, and that moist air circulates through your air ducts. When this air mixes with the existing dust and dirt buildup in the ducts, a mold problem can occur. For this reason, it is best to have your ducts cleaned out before mold has any chance of thriving in your air ducts.

How Often Should it be Done?

It is recommended that homeowners get their ducts cleaned every three to five years. Under certain circumstances, however, it may need to be done more often. This applies if you suffer from allergies, have pets, have a smoker in the house, or have a very high traffic home. You may need to get them cleaned every two years, or even once a year. Additionally, if you are suffering severe allergy flare-ups, regardless of how long it has been since your HVAC system was last cleaned, you may greatly benefit from having the ducts cleaned.
