When Should You Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned?

One of the best ways to keep your HVAC system running efficiently is to have its air ducts cleaned, but did you know there are certain times of the year when cleaning is even more effective? Our HVAC specialists give you a rundown on the best times to have your air ducts cleaned.

 Air Ducts Cleaned‚Äč

Rainy Days

Rainy days may not be ideal for home exterior maintenance, but it’s completely different for HVAC maintenance. Rain removes a significant amount of particulate matter suspended in the air. This means the crew can clean the air ducts while the air is much clearer. Ducts don’t immediately build up dirt while they dry out right after getting cleaned.

Colder Days

You can’t have your air ducts cleaned when the system is used. If you have your ducts cleaned during a hot day, you’ll have to endure not having your system on until the cleaning process is finished. Cleaning the ducts on a cold day is much more bearable for you and the crew working on your system.

Early Summer

Spring is a season full of life and fresh starts. Unfortunately, it’s also a season associated with pollen being everywhere. Instead of having the ducts cleaned during spring, you may want to consider waiting for summer. By then, you’ll be able to get rid of all the pollen in one go.

Emergency Allergy Attacks

If there’s one time when air ducts have to be cleaned ASAP, that’s when you start or expect to experience allergy attacks. According to HVAC experts, dirty air ducts can trigger respiratory problems or cause an allergic reaction on the skin, throat, and eyes. This can be considered an HVAC emergency, so it must be done before the dirt makes things much worse.
