AIR DUCT CLEANING

Why should you clean your Air Duct system?

  • Every day accumulations of dust and dirt

  • pets

  • occupants with allergies or asthma

  • cigarette or cigar smoke

  • water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system

  • home renovation or remodeling projects

 

NOTE: Some occupants are more sensitive to these contaminants than others. Allergy and asthma sufferers, as well as young children and the elderly,  tend to be more susceptible to the types of poor indoor air quality that air duct cleaning can help address.

 

 

Benefits of having a clean Air Duct system:

Increases quality of indoor air

Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system takes air in and breathes air out. We create a great number of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the ductwork. While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harbouring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies. 

Saves Energy

A build-up of dirt & dust in the heating and cooling system causes it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Even with regular filter changes, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use. When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness. 

 

 

Our method of cleaning Air Ducts:

  • We use an upright 5000 cfm negative air pressure air motor system equipped with a HEPA filter. This machine is connected to a duct near the air handler, which is the heart of your HVAC system. The technician will simply cut an access hole in the duct, insert the vacuum hose, and seal where they join as tightly as possible. 

  • Next, the technician should seal each register with an adhesive cover. This is an important step because even an extremely powerful vacuum collection device will be ineffective if the registers in each room of the house are uncovered.

  • Once the technician finished these preparatory steps, he or she will turn on the vacuum unit. This step creates negative pressure, and particles inside the ductwork will be sucked into the collection device as they’re brushed or blown loose.

  • Once the system is under negative pressure, the technician will uncover each register and clean the ducts one by one. 

  • Improperly trained technicians have been known to move on after a quick burst from an air compressor and a spritz of disinfectant; this technique is largely ineffective and usually results in dust being blown back into the room. 

  • Legitimate technicians will use rotating brushes, compressed air tools, and simple vacuum cleaners to ensure dust is dislodged and sucked into the vacuum collection device.

  • It is recommended to clean the other components of the HVAC system as well, including the air handler’s blower motor, evaporator coil, and drain pan.

  • Cleaning these components, along with cleaning or changing the filter, will improve the air quality in your home as well as extend the life and increase the efficiency of your HVAC system.
