How Often You Really Need Duct Cleaning

Your ductwork is out of sight and out of mind, but in the background, it’s working constantly to deliver air throughout your home. It needs some occasional care, usually in the form of duct cleaning.

Duct cleaning in Bellingham is when we remove dust and debris that builds up in your ductwork in an effort to improve your HVAC system’s performance, but also your indoor air quality. This is how often you really need this service in your home.

Ducts Need to be Cleaned Once Every Five Years

Duct contaminants add air resistance. The more resistance, the less efficient your airflow is. Since your HVAC system is what’s called a forced air system, it uses a blower motor to force air through the ductwork. By not cleaning your ductwork, you’re voluntarily putting obstacles in front of the blower motor, making it harder to do its job.

Dusty ductwork is definitely bad, but we understand that you may be wondering how much this really impacts performance if it’s only being recommended once every five years. 

Record Your Duct Cleaning Appointment Somewhere

Professional duct cleaning matters and our Air Solutions Team suggests adding this to your to-do list just like other major maintenance and changes to your home. With it only required every five years it would be a good idea to set a reminder in your calendar to schedule a timely appointment. Think of it like a ledger where you record the date of when your windows and insulation were installed, that way you know when to replace them later on down the line.
