Is duct cleaning really necessary? That is a common question. Let me quote from the National Air Duct Cleaning Associations website:

“Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system takes air in and breathes air out. Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal 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 duct work. While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.”

In addition to HVAC duct cleaning, we also provide dryer vent clean out services. Because excess lint in the vents are a major fire hazard, it is important to have them cleaned at least every 1 or 2 years.

Our Process

What We Do:

  1. Remove all registers from ceilings, walls, baseboards or under cabinets. Once removed, we will clean each register with a microfiber cloth to remove any loose dust or debris. We will then turn the air handler off.
  2. Using our patented air cleaning system, we will run an air line into each supply duct and blast air through the line to blow any dust toward the opening where we have a vacuum dust collection system to catch it as it comes out.
  3. Once the supply ducts are cleaned, we will turn the system air handler on and begin cleaning, using the same process, each supply register.
  4. In the event that the main trunk line is a longer run than what our air hoses can reach, we will connect into the trunk or plenum to remove any dust accumulated there.
  5. After cleaning the supply ducts, we will then clean in and around the furnace and furnace housing to remove any dust or contaminants. We will then inspect the air filter and clean as needed, or recommend replacement.
  6. An optional sanitizer can be added at this stage to kill any mold or mildew in the lines, and prevent re-contamination in the future.
  7. If requested, we will clean out the dryer vent from the outside using the same air duct cleaning system.

Help with HVAC Filters

Good filters for HVAC systems are of paramount importance for a variety of reasons.

  1. They play a vital role in maintaining indoor air quality by capturing dust, allergens, and airborne particles, thus promoting a healthier living environment. These filters can significantly reduce the risk of respiratory problems and allergies, making them crucial, especially for individuals with sensitivities.
  2. Efficient filters help protect the HVAC system itself by preventing dust and debris from clogging or damaging crucial components, thus extending its lifespan and reducing maintenance costs.
  3. High-quality filters improve energy efficiency by allowing the system to operate more smoothly and consume less energy.

In summary, good filters for HVAC systems not only contribute to indoor comfort and health but also help preserve the system’s longevity and reduce energy consumption, making them an essential element of any well-maintained HVAC system.

Which Filter Do I Need?

When selecting an air filter, it’s essential to consider your specific needs, the type of contaminants present in your environment, and the compatibility with your HVAC system.  For an easy way to remember, look for the MERV rating on the filter.

The MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating assesses a filter’s ability to capture particles of different sizes. Filters with lower MERV ratings (1-4) are designed to capture larger particles, like dust and pollen, while higher MERV-rated filters (17-20) can trap even smaller particles such as bacteria and viruses. Here’s a breakdown of what MERV ratings signify:

  1. MERV 1-4: These filters are the least efficient and mainly capture larger particles like dust, pollen, and carpet fibers.  Typically they filter out particles larger than 10 µm (microns)
  2. MERV 5-8: Filters in this range provide moderate filtration and are effective in trapping smaller dust, mold spores, and pet dander. Filters in this range can trap particles between 3 to 10 µm.
  3. MERV 9-12: Filters in this range offer a good balance between efficiency and airflow, capturing finer particles like some bacteria, smoke, and fine dust.  These filters are effective at capturing particles between 1 to 3 µm.
  4. MERV 13-16: These filters are highly efficient and suitable for capturing even smaller particles like viruses, some bacteria, and allergens. They are commonly used in hospital settings and commercial buildings.  Filters in this range can capture particles as small as 0.3 µm.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

Dryer vent cleaning is crucial for several reasons. Firstly, it enhances the safety of your home by reducing the risk of dryer fires, which can result from the accumulation of lint and debris in the vent. These highly flammable materials can ignite when exposed to high temperatures, posing a significant hazard. Secondly, regular cleaning improves the efficiency of your dryer, allowing it to operate more effectively and potentially extending its lifespan. A clean vent ensures proper airflow, reducing energy consumption and cutting down on utility bills. Moreover, it contributes to indoor air quality by preventing lint and dust particles from being released into your home, which can be especially problematic for individuals with allergies or respiratory issues. In summary, dryer vent cleaning not only safeguards your home but also promotes energy efficiency and healthier living conditions.
