Air Duct Cleaning FAQs

Most people Clean their air ducts to reduce allergens. Over time dirt, dust, pollen, and other airborne contaminants flow through and collect in your air ducts. Removing these allergens from your home can make a significant difference in the Indoor air quality in your home. Also, there is an energy savings when an HVAC unit and air ducts are clean. Like all mechanical equipment machines run more efficient when clean and free from debris. Some people do it to reduce the amount of dusting they need to do in their house. Many homeowners have reported needing to dust only half the amount of time that they used to have to dust.

We clean many new homes. The reason is: when a home is being built, often the contractors need the heat or the air to help products drop property such as floors and sheet rock, sanding floors puts a fine dust into the air that then gets into the duck system- often even when the HVAC unit is not being used. Also, sheet rock dust floats around and cross contaminates the duck work. Both sanding dust and sheet rock can produce allergens if someone is allergic to dust. It is also frustrating for a new homeowner to have to dust frequently because the air ducks are going out sanding dust and or sheet rock dust. Many times, we pull out nails sandwich bags and other things that were swept or thrown down the duck the open ductwork during the construction phase.

Typically air ducts should be cleaned about every five years. Someone with severe allergies possibly every three years. If someone has a pet and sheds a lot also possibly every three years.

Cleaning your air ducts helps the majority of people concerning allergies. When you clean your air ducts, you remove years of pollen, debris, dust, and other allergens that have been trapped in your air duct system. Often, at the AC coil where condensation collects there can be mold and bacteria so people often notice a reduction in just mold and bacteria thus the relief of allergies.

Yes, air duct cleaning can help you save energy the largest investment has been 11%. That 11% is estimated when you have a dirty air coil and dirty air ducts. It would not be reasonable to expect 11% savings, unless you have a very dirty HVAC unit and dirty ducts.
