Have you ever wondered, “What is an air duct cleaning?” Well lucky for you, Planet Duct has a galaxy-worth of knowledge about air duct cleaning, and now we’re sharing it with you!

What Are Air Ducts?

Air ducts are a system of tubes that connect your HVAC system to the air vents in your home. They have an integral role in providing your home, or office building, with air. Air ducts can be composed of different materials, shapes and sizes of tubing. The type of air duct you have was most likely built to work as efficiently as possible with your HVAC system. It’s a good idea to learn about your air ducts so that when it comes to maintenance, you are more familiar with the parts and materials needed for your specific air duct system.

What Is The Air Duct Cleaning Process?

Having clean air ducts ensures that the air running through your home is safe, and helps your HVAC system work properly. During air duct cleanings, debris and allergens are removed from your air duct system, positively impacting the quality of your indoor air. With the system rid of bacteria, this will hopefully reduce your asthma and allergy symptoms.

Air duct cleanings consist of thoroughly cleaning your entire air system, not just the ducts. This usually includes air ducts, grilles, diffusers, heat exchanger, AC coils, drain pan and more. Imagine if you neglected taking care of all of these moving parts. Eventually, you would probably notice that your electricity bills were increasing even though your AC system wasn’t working as efficiently. Removing the contaminants in your ductwork also helps ensure the health and safety of you and your family.

Who Do I Hire For An Air Duct Cleaning?

A lot of carpet cleaners offer air duct cleaning as well, and many people take up this offer. The problem is that carpet cleaners usually lack the proper equipment and training needed for a thorough air duct cleaning. When you are deciding who to hire to clean your air ducts, make sure you choose a company that is NADCA certified. NADCA, National Air Duct Cleaning Association, certification means that you’ve proven that you have the ability to effectively clean air ducts without damaging them in the process.

Lucky for you, the team at Planet Duct is NADCA certified! We have the ASCS, air systems cleaning specialist, and the CVI, certified ventilation inspector, certifications.This means that our out-of-this-world team has proven they have the skills necessary to maintain HVAC system hygiene and perform inspections of commercial HVAC systems.
