What is Duct Cleaning?

Duct cleaning generally refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.

Research suggests that cleaning residential heating and cooling system components will improve the efficiency of your system, resulting in a longer operating life, as well as reducing energy and maintenance costs.

Duct cleaning has been shown to reduce microbial growth and increase the efficiency of your system. In fact, in cases of extreme buildup, it can increase efficiency as much as 40%!

How to Know if Your Ducts Need Cleaned

Mold Growth

Ductwork should be cleaned if there is visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts or on other components of your heating and cooling system. 

Vermin Infestation

If you have rodents or an infestation of bugs or insects, it's time to have your duct system thoroughly cleaned. 

Clogging from Dust & Debris

You need duct cleaning if your ductsare clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris which are being released into the home.

Your home's indoor air quality is important, and having a clean, properly functioning heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system is vital to maintaining a clean healthy and comfortable living environment.

In addition, a newly cleaned air duct system runs more efficiently than a dirty one, resulting in lower utility bills and a cleaner, less dusty home.

Our residential duct cleaners check for dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other airborne contaminants that are pulled into your HVAC system every time the furnace or air conditioner runs. Over time, they build up inside your ductwork, making your air duct system a breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew and other microbes, which are then re-circulated through your home, impacting the health and comfort of your family.

Those who suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments, especially children and the elderly, are vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollution. As a result, most health experts agree on the health benefits of proper, and regular, air duct cleaning.

Preferred Energy Consultants certified technicians have the training and experience to remove harmful contaminants from your home.
