Why Clean Your Duct System?
Cleaner ducts and heat exchanger surfaces mean improved air flow and increased heat transfer. When this occurs fuel consumption is reduced.
Duct systems not only circulate heating and cooling but also dust. Less dust circulation means easier breathing. This is especially beneficial for individuals with allergies or other respiratory problems. If dust and dirt are allowed to accumulate in the duct system, a breeding ground for germs and bacteria may develop.
Large accumulations of dust on heat exchanger surfaces can become a fire hazard. Temperatures in most heating systems are high enough to ignite dust particles.
Less dirt in circulation reduces the need for cleaning carpets, drapes and furniture. Less dirt also means reduced streaking around registers and vents there by reducing the need for painting and redecorating.
How does it work?
The blower is removed from the system so that it can be properly cleaned. A ten inch suction hose is inserted into the heating unit. The other end of the hose is connected to our power vac truck on one of our hepa filtered cleaning units.
While the system is under suction, compressed air is blown through the ducts, forcing the dirt back to the furnace. When the dirt reaches the furnace it is drawn into the truck by the suction hose.
The evaporator coil, blower and heat exchanger are then cleaned and inspected. There is no dirt or mess inside the house since all the debris is drawn directly from the duct system to the duct cleaning machine.
Dust, pollen, mold, animal dander and other air-borne contaminants are pulled into your duct system every time the air conditioner or the furnace operates. Each time the furnace or air conditioner is turned on, contaminates are spewed out and circulated throughout your home and affect the health and comfort of your family.
The removal of contaminates from the entire HVAC system is recognized by industry experts as the most effective way to eliminate the air duct pollutants. This is referred as the "source removal" method of duct cleaning.
Most people spend 60% to 90% of their time indoors. (American Lung Association)
It is estimated that 50% of illnesses are either caused by or aggravated by polluted indoor air. (American College of Allergist)
People that are inside a great deal may be at a greater risk of developing health problems. These include infants, young children, the elderly, and those with chronic illnesses. (American Lung Association and Consumer Public Safety Commission)
Not all duct cleaning companies are the same. Make sure they are members of NADCA, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association.
