Air Duct Cleaning in Orlando
Think of your home as a body. The HVAC system and ductwork are your home, business premises, or office lungs in this scenario. Both methods are crucial: they allow you to take in air and breathe easily.
When something compromises your HVAC system and ductwork in your home, you are compromising your air quality and, more importantly, your quality of life.
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) says that each year, the average 6-bedroom home generates up to 40 pounds of dust that circulates through your air ducts and recirculates within this environment.
Up to 7 times a day, that accumulation of dust and debris circulates throughout the house and causes duct clogs, creating a vicious cycle of waste build-up.
As dust, dirt and debris build-up, it can trigger respiratory problems and electrical consumption, ultimately costing more than routine duct cleaning.
How to tell if your ducts need cleaning
- Your allergies are acting up or worse than expected.
- Your HVAC system seems inefficient or your bills are higher than usual.
- There is a visible debris build-up in the ducts (dust, mold, or other debris).
If you experience any of the above situations, consider looking into our comprehensive ventilation duct cleaning solution. Some essential pieces of equipment make large-scale duct cleaning possible, as recognized by NADCA.
Air conditioning technicians use these devices to open up your HVAC system’s inlets to facilitate inspection and cleaning.
Of course, when an HVAC system is at risk due to debris build-up, it’s challenging to perform visual inspections. That’s where tools like mirrors, periscopes and closed-circuit camera systems come into play.
Manual cleaning tools
Once they gain physical access to your ductwork and establish a solid visual reading, our air conditioning technicians use brushes and pneumatic agitation devices to loosen debris build-up. These tools allow dust and dirt to be vulnerable to vacuum suction.
Vacuum collection devices
A vacuum pick-up device captures accumulated dust, dirt and debris. These powerful suction tools are usually mounted on a truck or trailer (although they can also be more portable). Each uses negative pressure to capture and remove contaminants.
Here are some frequently asked questions about duct cleaning.
Will our home’s energy bills go down after an HVAC cleaning?
According to NADCA, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has shown that HVAC system cleaning increases operating efficiency because it helps remove debris inside the ducts.
A clean HVAC system works better, and it’s that simple. And when your HVAC system works better, it uses less energy, saving you money on your monthly utility bills.
I want to clean my home’s HVAC system. How does it work?
Usually, a vacuum-like device cleans your air ducts and ventilation systems. However, this is not a vacuum cleaner you can use for everyday purposes; it is made specifically for high suction levels. Contractors use the vacuum to suck debris out of your home’s air ducts.
