Another service that Bozeman HVAC Cleaners offer is air duct cleaning. Air duct cleaning deals directly with the indoor air quality of your home or business. Dust is accumulated in large, often undetectable amounts annually and can affect the health and wellbeing of those living or working in a space. To put things in perspective, consider this: in a six bedroom home or office,
up to 40 pounds of dust is created just by everyday living. That dust is being circulated throughout the home and is in the air that you live and breathe. Having a clean, properly working air duct is vital in keeping your air clean, breathable and dust-free.
If air ducts are not properly installed, cleaned, maintained and used, they can become polluted with various debris like dust, dander, chemicals, mold and other gases that are then re-circulated through HVAC system. If the air ducts are not checked and monitored for moisture, the probability of mold and other moisture-born microbiological growth increases greatly.
A preventative measure that can be taken is to have the servicemen apply a chemical biocide to the duct, which will act as a protective coating to fight off bacteria and dust. Chemical solutions can also be applied to regulate and prevent growth.
When the cleaning is neglected, the air ducts can get clogged and stop functioning, thus resulting in stale, uncirculated air that can have harmful pollutants that can thus cause respiratory problems for those living in the home or workspace. Other allergens, like those to mold, dust, or pollen, are direct results of not cleaning and maintaining your air ducts.
Below are some of the methods Bozeman HVAC Cleaners uses to clean air ducts:
Hand-held vacuuming: Workers use a brush attached to a large portable vacuum equipped with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter. However, the hand-held method isn’t completely reliable and may leave pockets of dust.
Mechanical brush: A rotating brush is fed into the ductwork. A truck-mounted vacuum sucks away debris. The rotary brush may damage older or poorly installed systems.
Air sweep: A truck-mounted vacuum system carries away dust and debris dislodged by a compressed-air hose fed into the ducts. Of the three, the air sweep method usually does the most effective job.
We use a high-powered HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuum system of the highest manufacture and quality for all projects and all clients to ensure the best, most efficient and professional services.
Maintaining your air ducts is important! As Glenn Fellman, the Executive Director of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association has been quoted as saying, “In addition to health problems, clogged air ducts can clog heating and air conditioning system components, decreasing the efficiency of the system and leading to higher energy bills.”
It is important to have a certified and licensed professional install and perform routine check ups on your air ducts, as they know what to look for, what tools to use, and how to safely disassemble and reassemble the units so that they are in proper working order.
