Air Duct Cleaning
Over time air ducts collect dust, pollen, and other debris emitted from your heating and cooling units. If your air ducts haven’t been cleaned in over 5 years they could be clogged up and delivering unclean air to your home. Ignoring ventilation maintenance can also drive up your energy bills due to blocked airflow making your heating and cooling systems work harder.
Our air duct cleaning services work to remove any dust and particulate build-up in your vents to improve indoor air quality and save you money. We take pride in helping our customer’s homes and businesses in Northern, VA be comfortable and reducing the pollutants in the air they breathe.
Benefits of Cleaning Air Ducts
As previously mentioned, air ducts collect dust over the years. The air that passes through them comes out of the vents and circulates throughout your home. Ultimately, the occupants of the home and guests will breath this polluted air in.
According to the EPA, indoor air quality can be 2 – 5 times (sometimes more than 100 times) worse than the air outside (Source: EPA). If you have asthma, allergies, or other respiratory issues, allergens and irritants coming from dirty vents could trigger symptoms such as coughing, irritated eyes, nose, and throat, dizziness, and fatigue.
Some of the benefits of air duct cleaning include:
- Improving airflow and your HVAC systems efficiency
- Improving indoor air quality
- Reducing energy bills
- Eliminating allergens and irritants that trigger asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues
- Prolonging the life of your HVAC systems
- Eliminating stale odors from mold, mildew, smoke, and cooking
- Technicians can spot other ventilation issues
How Often Should Air Ducts Be Cleaned?
It is generally recommended that your air ducts be cleaned every 3 – 5 years. If you have pets or children, you should have your ducts cleaned more often than the recommended maintenance schedule.
If you’re looking for a solution to keep the air in your home as clean as possible all year long, consider investing in a whole-house air purifier. You can find more information about our whole-house air purifier installation services below.
Air Duct Sealing & Repair
Leaks and holes in your air ducts can reduce the amount of air that makes it to the living spaces in your home. Your HVAC systems will have to work harder to cool or heat your home to the desired temperature leading to higher energy bills. Over time, this stress on your heating and cooling systems can also lead to costly repairs and could decrease your systems lifespan.
The benefits of duct sealing includes saving up to 20% on your energy bill. Our technicians will work to identify any leaks in your air ducts and seal them to make sure air is moving efficiently in your home to help save you money in the short and long-term.
Ventilation Installation & Replacement
The maximum lifespan for ductwork is 20 – 25 years. You should consider replacing your ductwork after 15 years as your ducts will begin to detiriorate and reduce the efficiency of HVAC systems.
