Duct Cleaning

Preventative maintenance tip: The buildup of debris and/or contaminants makes your system work harder and therefore less efficient; which ultimately leads to a shorter life span of your system. While having dirty ducts doesn’t necessarily mean your home is “dirty” or “unhealthy,” but it definitely can contribute to certain health issues.

Preferred Heating & Air Duct CleaningDouble Suction

The Preferred Heating & Air duct cleaning system offers DOUBLE the suction than most other systems. Its portability allows us to clean larger homes and even commercial spaces without losing any suction. This duct cleaning system has multiple filters to ensure that no dirty air will escape into your home or office. We also use a duct cleaning inspection camera that allows us to see deep into the duct work to maximize our performance and guarantee that our job is completed properly.

Changing your air filter regularly as recommended by professionals is a very important step in helping trap some of the dust and debris that would otherwise build up on other important components.

FAQ

Preferred Heating & Air Duct Cleaning“Why do I need my ducts cleaned?” Cleaning your system and air ducts will help improve the efficiency of your system and help with the indoor air quality of your home or office. The buildup of debris and/or contaminants makes your system work harder and therefore less efficient; which ultimately leads to a shorter life span of your system. While having dirty ducts doesn’t necessarily mean you home is “dirty” or “unhealthy”, but it definitely can contribute to certain health issues. Since your heating and cooling system is the most expensive appliance in your home, don’t you want it to last as long as possible?

“When should I get my ducts cleaned?” It’s never a bad idea to rid your duct work of debris and dust. However, there are certain times that cleaning is highly recommended, including; If you have an older home, and it has never had the air ducts cleaned; after a renovation; when moving into a new home with an existing duct system; if mold is visible; if your ducts are infested with rodents or insects; or if you can see particles being released form the supply registers.

“Will cleaning my ducts help my system’s efficiency?” It is a good idea to get your entire system cleaned-not just the duct work. While getting your ducts cleaned can help eliminate odors, dust, and grime, just cleaning those alone won’t help with the efficiency. The real “efficiency sucker” is when other important components are dirty. Having the burners, coils, fan motor, and fan housing cleaned as well will help boost efficiency. According to the NADCA, in a typical 6 room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually just through every day living. You can breathe easy knowing that your ducts are dust-free!

Preferred Heating & Air Duct Cleaning Camera“How does your duct cleaning system work?” Our portable Duct cleaning system is brought into your home and placed near the furnace. We will penetrate the duct work near the furnace and attach the suction hose (think of it as a giant vacuum) We then will go around to each register and send down a hose that blows air towards the suction point. We will attach agitation tools and cameras to the blow hose that will help loosen the debris to send it into the machine. The cameras ensure we did not miss any large debris.

Preferred Heating & Air Duct Cleaning“Why don’t you have a large duct truck?” We opted to go with a powerful portable machine because studies show that you can get just as much suction at the furnace, and sometimes more with this portable unit as you can get with a duct truck. The reason this is possible is, with a large duct truck that is parked outside, long hoses will need to stretch all the way from the street into your furnace area. A lot of suction is being lost through those long hoses. With the portable unit, it is being brought in right next to the furnace and will only have a few feet of hose, therefore, not losing any suction to the machine. Yes, the duct cleaning trucks offer a lot more suction AT THE TRUCK, but once the air blows through those long hoses, it loses quite a bit of suction and is then equivalent to our portable machine.
