How often should I get my air ducts cleaned?

 How often should I get my air ducts cleaned?

The air ducts in your home spread cool air from your air conditioner and warm air from your furnace. With all of these tasks, it could get clogged with dust and hair fairly quickly. However, the amount of dust and particles in your air ducts depends on how many people and animals live in your home. With pets or allergies, your air ducts may have to be cleaned more often. Other factors include smokers in your home, potential water leaks or contamination, recent renovations or remodels to your home, and other respiratory issues the people living in your home have. While the air ducts should be checked twice a year with the regular tune ups, they are most often cleaned every three to five years, according to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. Talk with your HVAC professional for their recommendation for your home.
