Air Duct Cleaning
Duct Cleaning Benefits
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and energy savings are the two big reasons for having your ducts cleaned. The heating and cooling systems are the lungs of your home, office or school, where the system takes in air, heats or cools it, then breathes it out. In a typical day, contaminants like dander, dust, dust mites, smoke and chemicals are drawn into the HVAC system that cycles five to seven (or more) times per day and re-circulated throughout the system. Over time this continuous process causes build up in the duct work.
Though dirty duct work doesn’t necessarily mean you are breathing in unhealthy air, it may contribute increased health risks for people with respiratory issues, environmental allergies or autoimmune disorders.
An added benefit to a clean HVAC system means that it does not have to work as hard, resulting in less energy used and improved cost efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted by contaminant build up in the HVAC system. This causes the system to work harder than necessary and shortens the system’s life.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer Vent Cleaning Benefits
Clean dryer vents have three important benefits: improved dryer performance, lower energy costs and lessen the chance of fire hazard.
If your dryer vent hasn’t been cleaned in the last year or two, it probably needs it. Not all of the lint generated during the drying cycle gets caught in the lint trap. As moist lint fibers pass through the lint trap, they begin to collect on the inside of the dryer duct. Over time, the lint build up reduces air flow and makes the dryer work harder.
In 1999 the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPC) reported that of the 15,000 fires studied in one year, electric dryers were over 2.5 times more likely to be the cause of the fire than gas dryers. Fires originated most frequently from two places: dryer venting and the lint trap.
Signs of excess lint build up:
• Clothes take longer and longer to dry
• Clothes don't fully dry
• Hotter than normal clothes at the end of the dryer cycle
• Outside of dryer gets very hot
• Outside exhaust vent flapper does not open very much
• Laundry room is humid
• Burnt smell in the laundry room
We use the system that homeowners prefer 3 to 1:
The Rotobrush brush and vacuum method that scrubs your duct work while it vacuums up debris. And, since the system is portable, there is no need to cut a hole in your duct work for hose access.
