Two of the nicest gentlemen came to do my ductwork, heater, clothes dryer, and fireplace/chimney last week. I must tell you that they were wonderful, dilligent hard workers , who were extremely neat in their work and I am so pleased with your company and your wonderful employees. God Bless those 2 men, Yuri and Gregory. They really need to be commended for a job well done.
Very often the two terms "air duct cleaning" and "indoor air pollution" are inextricably connected. In fact, duct cleaning has evolved in response to the increasing concerns over indoor air pollution. Most indoor air quality (IAQ) problems are a combination of many factors, the physical condition of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system being one of them. 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.
The best way to check if your air ducts are dirty is to look inside the duct. Open up the furnace and look at the blower motor or look at the return duct. You would probably be shocked at the amount of dirt and debris that has build up in your air duct system.
We guarantee no mess. The duct system is placed under negative pressure (suction) with our powerful vacuum equipment during the cleaning process so there is no dust going into the house.
One-inch disposable air filters should be changed monthly. 4-inch air filters should be replaced every 3-4 months. Do not operate your furnace or air conditioning system without an air filter, even if you are running to pick up a new one! The system will not have any protection from dust and debris.
In a dirty air duct system energy consumption could be increased depending on the amount of contamination and its location. If the fan blades, evaporator coil or other control components of the system are heavily contaminated, the system may have to run much longer to cool or heat the house, wasting a lot of energy and money. Clean HVAC System will operate more efficient.
Once an air duct system is thoroughly cleaned, it should remain clean for 2 to 4 years (depending on the environment) if properly maintained. Customers who have the following might also want to consider more frequent cleanings:
NADCA does not endorse one kind of equipment over another. There are two main types of dust collection devices: mounted on trucks and portable units. Truck mounted equipment is generally more powerful than portable. However, portable equipment would be brought directly into the house, allowing the vacuum source to be located closer to the ductwork so it wonít loose any suction pressure because of long hoses. Both types of equipment will clean to NADCA standards.
Generally, if you use wood, it is good to have the chimney inspected at least every 6-12 months (more often if you burn two or more cords of wood, or if you burn green wood).
Without a doubt! Although gas is generally a clean burning fuel, the chimney can become non-functional from bird nests or other debris that block the flue.
No. We use a powerful vacuum that prevents soot and dust from entering the home, and we are careful to take precautions in order to prevent any mess.
