Cleaning your air ducts

We hope everyone had an enjoyable Father’s Day and Flag Day weekend!

How long has it been since you last had your air ducts cleaned?

air ductsIf it’s been 3 years or more, you should probably think about getting your air ducts cleaned, especially if you have pets, are a smoker, or have asthma or allergies. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average home accumulates about 40 pounds of dust per year. This time of the year is perfect, since you’re not running your furnace anymore and you haven’t had to turn on your air conditioner yet. Cleaning your air ducts generally takes 4-6 hours and your furnace and air conditioner need to be turned off through the process. If it’s 20 degrees below zero or 100 degrees outside, your house would be without heat or air and would take a while to get heated or cooled again after the air ducts have been cleaned.
