National Air Duct Cleaners Association Recommendations
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends you have your home or office air ducts professionally cleaned every 3 to 5 years. It goes on to say that if you have allergies or asthma, you should consider doing it even more frequently.
The HVAC Inspection, Maintenance, and Restoration Association, otherwise known as the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), was formed in 1989 as a non-profit association of companies engaged in the cleaning of HVAC systems. Its mission is to promote source removal as the only acceptable method of cleaning and to establish industry standards for the association.
The NADCA on air quality
Just like your lungs, your home or office A/C and heating systems take in and breathe out air. Imagine breathing in 40 pounds of dust every year, because that’s how much a typical 6-room house processes every year. A larger space can process as much as 100 pounds.
This data from the NADCA only reinforces how important it is to have your air ducts cleaned. According to the NADCA, contaminants like dust, mold, pollen, dander, and other air pollutants are circulating throughout your home or office every day. Cleaning your air duct system can help drastically reduce the amounts of these contaminants.
Save money on your electric bill
According to the US Department of Energy, as much as 25-40 percent of your electric bill is used for heating and cooling your home or office. Clean air ducts mean a clean system and can help lower your electric bills.
On top of that, contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause your compressor and furnace to work harder, shortening the life of your system. Although filters are a good idea, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.

What we do
We brush and vacuum the air ducts and vents to open the passage for air flow and decrease the amount of dust in the system.
This will keep the air you breath clean, and it will keep your system cooling your house efficiently.
Our main goal is to make sure your system is clean and has no blockages. Any blockage can create extra humidity and moisture, which will in turn create more mold and bacteria.
We can also clean the entire HVAC system, which will help keep your system functioning without ever needing major repairs
