Brandon Kirk is the owner of Planet Duct-Air Duct Cleaning. As a NADCA Certified Air-Duct Cleaning Specialist, he has extensive experience servicing air ducts in El Paso County and the Southern CO region since 2019.

Your HVAC system plays an important role in keeping your air quality clean. Your heating and cooling system is responsible for bringing in air and recirculating it in your home or business. Air ducts that are filled with contaminants, like bacteria or mold, mean that dirty air is being recirculated and blown into your space. This is why it is important to regularly clean your air ducts to improve your indoor air quality and HVAC efficiency. 

As a NADCA-certified air duct cleaning company, Planet Duct is proud to provide Southern Colorado with superior air duct cleaning services. Our technicians have extensive experience and knowledge to provide you with the best results possible to keep you healthy and your air quality clean.

What is Air Duct Cleaning?

Air duct cleaning refers to the cleaning of your home’s heating and cooling system. Over time as the air in your home or business is recirculated, this causes a build-up of contaminants in the ductwork. These contaminants can include:

  • Molds
  • Pollen
  • Bacteria
  • Dust
  • Pet dander

As more of these contaminants build up in the air duct, the worse the air quality will be in your home. The goal of air duct cleaning is to sanitize, disinfect, and deodorize your air ducts to eliminate build-up.

How Often Should Air Ducts Be Cleaned?

In order to ensure the air quality of your home is clean and healthy for you and your family, it is important to schedule regular air duct treatments. For residences, air duct cleaning is recommended every six months. For commercial spaces, monthly air duct treatments are preferred to help protect you, employees, and customers from any contaminants in the ductwork. The way your air ducts are maintained has a large impact on the air quality and longevity of your heating and cooling units. When cleaned regularly, your air ducts will not only be cleaner but will last longer, too.

What are the Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning?

As your HVAC system blows air through your duct system, it naturally blows any contaminants in the duct, which circulates throughout your home. This may have a negative impact on your health and peace of mind. Individuals suffering from allergies, asthma, COPD, and other respiratory issues may be more sensitive to debris in the air and experience allergies, headaches, congestion, and other unpleasant irritations as a result. By cleaning your air duct system, you are also improving the air quality in your home or business to bring you a cleaner and healthier environment.

How to Improve HVAC Efficiency?

As your heating and cooling system is responsible for moving air throughout your space, contaminants or debris may be blocking airflow. Air that is blocked by debris is unable to move through the air ducts properly, and this can have a large impact on HVAC efficiency, especially in winter and summer when you’re running your systems often. Your heating and cooling systems have to use more energy to keep your home and business at the right temperature. By having your air ducts properly cleaned, any debris blocking airflow will be removed, and your HVAC system will be much more efficient as a result.
