Dallas Air Duct Cleaning
Think of your home as a body. In this scenario the HVAC system and ducts are your home’s lungs.
Both systems are extremely important: they allow you to take in air and breathe easy.
When something compromises your HVAC system and home ductwork, it’s compromising your air quality, and more importantly, your quality of life.
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) says that every year, an average six-room home generates as much as 40 pounds of dust – all of which circulates through your air ducts and finds its way back into your home.
Up to 7 times per day, that buildup of dust and debris circulates throughout your home and causes blockages in your ducts, creating a vicious cycle of debris buildup.
For most people, this doesn’t present a serious issue. Still, as dust, dirt and debris accumulate they can trigger respiratory issues, eventually costing more money to treat than a routine duct cleaning.
How to know when your ducts need cleaning
- Your allergies are acting up or worse than normal
- Your HVAC system seems inefficient or your bills are higher than normal
- There’s visible debris buildup in ductwork (dust, mold or other debris)
If you’re experiencing any of the above, consider seeking out our comprehensive duct cleaning solution. There are a few important pieces of equipment that make large-scale duct cleaning possible, as recognized by NADCA.
Technicians use these devices to open entryways in your HVAC system to make both inspection and cleaning easier.
Of course, when an HVAC system is compromised because of debris buildup, it becomes incredibly difficult to conduct visual inspections. That’s where tools like mirrors, periscopes and closed circuit camera systems come into play.
Hand Cleaning Tools
Once they gain physical access to your ductwork and establish a solid visual reading, our trained technicians use brushes and pneumatic agitation devices to loosen debris buildup. These tools allow technicians to make dust and dirt vulnerable to vacuum suction.
Vacuum Collection Devices
Loosened dust, dirt and debris buildup is captured by a vacuum collection device. These powerful suction tools are typically mounted on a truck or trailer (although they can also be more portable). Each uses negative pressure to capture and remove contaminants.
Below are a few frequently asked questions about duct cleaning.
Will our home energy bills go down after an HVAC system cleaning?
According to NADCA, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has demonstrative research showing that HVAC system cleaning increases operational efficiency because it helps clear debris from the inner ductwork.
A clean HVAC system is works better. It’s that simple. And when your HVAC system works better, it uses less energy, saving you money on your monthly utility bills.
I’m looking to clean my home’s HVAC system. How does that work?
Typically, a device similar to a vacuum cleans your air ducts and ventilation systems. This isn’t a vacuum you could use for everyday purposes, however; it’s made specifically for high levels of suction. Contractors use the vacuum to suck out debris from your home’s air ducts.
