Benefits Of Air Duct Cleaning

Reduce Allergies

If allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues are affecting your family, getting your air ducts cleaned may be a good solution to solving these issues and improving the health of your family. Up to 20% of the population suffers from breathing and health issues caused by allergens floating throughout their home. These allergies can be derived from pollen, pet dander, airborne dust, dust mites, smog, and more, causing allergies, ear, eye, and throat irritation, headaches, congestion, and other uncomfortable conditions. 

When you think about how your HVAC system works, every time your air conditioner or furnace turns, air is blown through your duct system. When air is being forced through a passage, it naturally blows around whatever is in the duct: allergens, dust and debris. When you get your air ducts professionally cleaned by Planet Duct, an incredibly strong vacuum force pulls out all non-adhered particles that have been sitting in your duct system, reducing contaminants and allergies for your family. Those suffering from allergies, asthma, COPD, and more can greatly benefit from this service.

Lower Utility Bill

When you cool or heat your home, energy is used to power these systems. This has a direct correlation with your monthly utility bill. Unfortunately, when debris builds up in your HVAC system, it is forced to expel much more energy which both increases your energy consumption while decreasing the life of your system. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, as much of 40% of the energy used by HVAC systems is completely wasted. When your air ducts are lined with debris and clogged, then your HVAC system is forced to work much harder while yielding less results. When your air conditioner coils are dirty, there is less surface area for air to flow through, thus making your air conditioning system work harder as well. All of these systems must be maintained in order to keep your utility bill down. 

When you have your system cleaned and serviced by experienced professional duct cleaning companies like Planet Duct, you increase the efficiency of your system, as it is not working overtime to distribute heat and air conditioning, therefore lowering your monthly bill and extending the life of your furnace and air conditioner.

Improve Air Quality

While you may not always think about your air duct system, it is having a constant impact on your health. According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, an average home collects 40 pounds of debris, dirt, allergens, and more every year. Each time your system circulates air through your home, particles that have accumulated in your air ducts also make their way into your lungs, embed themselves in your fabrics, and have an overall negative impact on your home and your health. If your air conditioner smells, or your heater has an odor, that is a sign that you should get your ducts inspected and cleaned.

The debris that spreads through your home can contain concerning bacteria, fungi, and mold which ultimately is harming your household. Households with elderly members, young children, and members that suffer from asthma or respiratory issues suffer most, can see a significant impact when breathing cleaner air. Nearly every household can benefit from a healthier environment and peace of mind, which is what air duct cleaning provides.

Our Air Duct Cleaning Process

We have invested the time, training, and equipment to ensure your home is taken care of. Planet Duct is certified by the National Air Duct Cleaning Association (NADCA) and equipped with powerful vacuum trucks and Hypervac 220 Portable systems.

  1. Our crew members will begin by masking your ducts to ensure each side of the system is isolated in order to maximize airflow. 
  2. Next, crew members will start cleaning your ventilation system by removing dust and debris from the return and service duct vents to the trunk lines. 
  3. Air whips, directional nozzles, and rotary brush systems will thoroughly clean every crack and crevice of the trunk lines. 
  4. Contaminates that have been brushed away will be pulled out of your home through our remarkably powerful vacuum hose and removed from your home. 
  5. The return drop, blower wheel, and filter compartment will all be detailed using pneumatic tools and natural cleaners. 
  6. Once your system is cleaned and approved, it will be re-sealed. 
  7. Planet Duct will conduct a carbon monoxide check to ensure there are not any larger issues and transparently communicated those results to you and provide next steps, if necessary.
