Why Clean Air Ducts?

Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a
typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and
cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system taken 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. Build-up of these contaminants
in the system can restrict airflow causing it to work harder and longer, thus expending more energy.

Energy Savings
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is
wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your
system. Although filters are used, 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.

In addition to air duct cleaning, our certified technicians also clean dryer vents. Having your dryer vents
professionally  cleaned regularly not only saves you money in energy efficiency, it also helps to prevent a dryer vent
fire at your  home.
