Why Clean Air Ducts?

Why Clean Air Ducts?

Think you’ve got dirty ducts? Well, there’s more to it than that! HVAC system components typically include:

  • Supply Air Ducts
  • Return Air Ducts
  • Acoustic Insulation
  • Duct Plenum Boxes
  • Air Directional Dampers
  • Turning Vanes
  • Filters and Air Bypass
  • Heating Coils or Furnace Tubes
  • Cooling Coils
  • Condensate Pans
  • Condensate Drain Lines
  • Blower Fan & Housing
  • Door Gaskets
  • General System Mechanical Wiring

HVAC Inspections and Cleanings are determined and completed using these factors directly from the 2022 NADCA ACR Guide. 

2021 NADCA ACR Standard

The EPA’s Recommendation

You should consider cleaning the air ducts in your home or business when:

  • There is substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts or on other components of your HVAC system.
  • Ducts are infested with vermin.
  • Ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust or debris. 
  • Particles are falling down (or coming up) through your registers.

"You may consider having your air ducts cleaned simply because it seems logical that air ducts will get dirty over time and should occasionally be cleaned."

Indoor Air Quality

Your heating and cooling systems are the lungs of your home. The system breathes air in and out just like we do.

We generate a great deal of contaminants such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These are pulled into the system and re-circulated several times a day leading to a build up of pollutants in your air ducts.

This can cause serious issues for people with respiratory conditions, autoimmune disorders, or environmental allergies.

Energy Savings

“According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted.” (NADCA)

Contaminants in your heating and cooling systems cause it to work overtime, thus shortening the life of your system.

When a system is properly maintained and cleaned, less energy is used, resulting in saving money on your energy bills!

A good rule of thumb: "If your air ducts look dirty, they probably are."

Common Types of Duct Work

  • Rigid Metal w/ external insultation
  • Flexible Duct Lines w/ internal Mylar sheath
  • Metal Ductwork w/ internal insultation
  • Fiberboard Ductwork w/ internal insulation

Typically, if there is an absence of insultation on the exterior of duct work, it means it’s on the inside. Ducts of this type will need to be sealed after cleaning. To learn more about these duct types, check out this video!
