Is Regular Duct Cleaning a Good Choice?

By Dave Trosdahl on September 13th, 2008

Your home is perhaps one of your most valuable assets, so keeping it clean is part of the routine chores that you should perform to keep the structure and appliances in optimal condition.

Duct Cleaners

Professional air duct cleaners provide you with a series of services that include duct cleaning, dryer vent cleaning, furnace cleaning, a/c cleaning, chimney cleaning, and many other services related to your home’s heating and cooling system. Most duct cleaning services also include the cleaning of furnaces, air conditioning systems, ductwork, chimneys, water heaters and other routine household maintenance chores. They may also offer transit duct cleaning, vent cleaning, air duct sanitizing, etc.

If you need to hire a duct cleaner, you can try traditional methods such as browsing the yellow pages and looking at the classified ads in your local newspaper. However, the easier and faster way to find a cleaner is by researching on the Internet. In many countries, there are national duct cleaners’ associations that have searchable lists of their members, grouping them by regions, and providing additional information such as areas of specialization and additional services that they can provide.

You can browse the duct cleaners’ database, and find the professional closest to fitting your budget. Cleaning of air ducts on a regular basis is an investment that extends the life expectancy of your heating and cooling system (furnace and a/c), along with the added benefit of cleaner air. So, when you hire the services of a professional duct cleaner you will be helping to keep a hygienic household environment. However, is there a difference between a professional duct cleaner and an unqualified cleaner such as the homeowner?

Professional Duct Cleaners Will Inspect and Advise

Professional duct cleaners are trained to spot safety concerns like mold or other microbial growth. They will offer suggestions on how to clean contaminated areas, as well as offer tips on how to prevent future problems. The same is true for the heating and cooling system. A well trained, professional air duct cleaner will also inspect the furnace for a cracked heat exchanger. A cracked heat exchanger will often go unnoticed by the homeowner leading to, often times deadly consequences. They will be able to check for carbon monoxide leaks and offer solutions to repair problem areas.

In the unfortunate event part or all of your heating and cooling system needs to be repaired or replaced, a professional duct cleaning company will have certified HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) technicians on staff, ready to correct problems immediately.

Heating and Cooling

Furnaces and air conditioners are among the most costly investments in a household, so getting a professional duct cleaning company to perform regular cleaning maintenance is a wise choice. Routine cleaning of your ventilation system including your air vents, furnace, central air system and chimney will make you feel more comfortable at home. And if your home looks good and is dust-free, your sense of well-being will also be increased. Visit us online at Duct-911.com or by calling 877-DUCT-911 to schedule duct cleaning.

    I agree, I would suggest looking for a NADCA certified Air Duct Cleaning company. The benefits are numerous, the technical, ethical, training requirements to be a certified NADCA makes the difference between the best job verses at best an average job.

    The web site is http://www.nadca.com.

    In addition I have heard via ASHRAE that there can be as much as a 30% reduction in heating and cooling costs depending on how dirty the system is.
