Why Air Duct Cleaning?

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks. Many homeowners have become more aware of this and are taking action to improve their own homes air quality. Air duct cleaning is a great way to remove dust, dirt, debris, and other harmful containments that may be sitting inside of your ducts. Cleaning your HVAC system may also provide relief to people whom suffer from allergies, asthma, or bronchitis. Better air quality is not the only benefit to having an air duct cleaning. Your HVAC system will operate more smoothly and efficiently, which usually will result in lower energy bills and will also expand the life expectancy on your furnace and air conditioning unit.

Does My Home Need An Air Duct Cleaning?

Have you had your air ducts cleaned within the past 3-5 years?

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends that home owners have their HVAC system cleaned at least every 3-5 years or sooner if needed.

Do you have any pets?

Pet dander finds its way inside of your duct work and can start to accumulate over time.

Have you had any home renovations or remodeling done?

Although many times the vents are covered during projects, dust, drywall, and other materials may still enter inside of the ductwork.

Does anyone suffer from asthma, allergies, or bronchitis?

A lot of the dust, dirt, and debris in your vents will re-distribute itself back into the living space in your home, making it more difficult for those to breathe.

Do you have a smoker living in your home?

Smoke residue will linger on the dirt and debris living inside of your duct work.

 

If any of the above applies, you may want to consider getting an air duct cleaning service for your home. You will truly notice a difference in the quality of air.

How Do I Inspect The Inside Of My Duct Work?

The easiest way to determine if your air ducts are soiled is by simply removing a vent register and using a digital camera, mirror, or a flash light to see the inside of the ducts.

Beware! Not All Air Duct Cleaners Are The Same

“You get what you pay for” motto usually stands true in the air duct cleaning industry. As you are searching for an air duct cleaning company you will see prices advertised as low as $49 and as high as a $1,000 for a residential air duct cleaning service. Companies offering a “whole house air duct cleaning” for $100 or less should raise a red flag. Most companies with those prices really aren’t cleaning your ducts. Usually they arrive with regular household cleaning devices such as shop vacuums and leaf blowers. Then they will go through the vents and blow the dirt and debris around in the HVAC system, without doing anything to clean or extract anything from the ducts. This all will be done in less than an hour. Not only will your HVAC system be left soiled, they will then try to scam you into purchasing other unnecessary services, such as sanitizers.

When choosing a reputable cleaner, service can estimate anywhere from 3-5 man hours. The entire HVAC system (All vents, supplies, returns, trunklines, and the main components in the furnace) should be cleaned by NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) standards. If the entire system is not cleaned, you’re not really receiving an air duct cleaning service. Technicians should be HVAC certified, as they have the proper knowledge and training to work with the HVAC system. The equipment used should be professional and designed specifically for air duct cleaning.
The best advice we can offer is to do your research before choosing an air duct cleaning company to ensure you will not waste your time and money.
Questions to ask when searching for a “good” air duct cleaner:

  • Is your company a certified member of NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association)?
  • Are all your technicians HVAC certified?
  • What equipment is utilized to clean the HVAC system?
  • How long will the service take to complete?
  • Are there any hidden fees, travel fees, or any up charges that you need to be aware of?

 

These are just few questions that can be asked to help sort the scam companies from the reputable companies. An educated consumer is a smart consumer.
