Ducts are the lungs of your home, and they carry air into your family’s lungs. A typical home creates up to 40 annual pounds of dust. Dirt, pollen, mold spores, animal dander, and chemicals linger in your air ducts and can affect kids and others with allergies, asthma, and sensitive immune systems.
Contaminants, such as mold, mildew, bacteria, dust and germs, build-up in heating and cooling systems over time. We offer a full heating and air conditioning cleaning service to rid your home of these hidden impurities, which can aggravate several conditions, including allergies, asthma and respiratory problems.
We can thoroughly and completely clean out your entire HVAC system (the vents, returns, and main trunk line and remove the contaminants).
The main reason why residential homes should have their ducts cleaned is because they accumulate dust! This accumulation can be the cause of a multitude of problems, including an increased need for dusting, poor heating and cooling performance, and musty odors through your home. While normal, repeated cycling of dust in a home can increase the need for air duct cleaning, other factors may push the air duct cleaning timetable forward even more, including:
If any of the conditions identified above exists, it usually suggests one or more underlying causes. Prior to any cleaning, retrofitting, or replacing of your ducts, the cause or causes must be corrected or else the problem will likely recur.
Some research suggests that cleaning heating and cooling system components (e.g., cooling coils, fans and heat exchangers) may improve the efficiency of your system, resulting in a longer operating life, as well as some energy and maintenance cost savings. However, little evidence exists that cleaning only the ducts will improve the efficiency of the system.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has listed poor indoor air quality as America's fourth-largest environmental threat. Some occupants are more sensitive to the contaminants within a residential HVAC system than others, so having a proper air duct cleaning performed to alleviate this issue is important. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years.
