Residential Duct Cleaning

Service Overview

Residential air duct cleaning is the process of cleaning the air ducts in a residential building, such as a house or apartment, to remove dust, debris, and other contaminants that accumulate over time. Air ducts are the passages that distribute heated or cooled air throughout a building, and they can become clogged with dirt, dust, pollen, pet hair, and other debris. This can negatively impact the indoor air quality, and can also cause HVAC systems to work harder and consume more energy.

The process of air duct cleaning involves several steps. First, the HVAC system is turned off and the air ducts are inspected to determine the extent of the cleaning required. Then, the ducts are cleaned using specialized tools and equipment, such as brushes, air whips, and high-powered vacuums, to dislodge and remove the accumulated debris. Depending on the level of contamination, some ducts may require more thorough cleaning or even disinfection.

After the cleaning is complete, the HVAC system is turned back on, and the technician will check to ensure that the air flow is restored to normal levels.

It’s recommended that residential air duct cleaning be done every 3-5 years, or more frequently if the occupants have allergies or respiratory issues. Regular cleaning of air ducts can improve indoor air quality, reduce energy consumption, and extend the lifespan of HVAC systems.

Health Benefits

Duct Doctor was founded by Dr. Gerald Vanderpool, a board certified allergist, in order to improve the quality of indoor air by removing the allergens and other biological contaminants.

About the Duct Doctor Process

Our proprietary truck-powered vacuum is 30 to 40 times as powerful as the rotary-brush type vacuums that end up doing more harm than good. This ensures that all foreign materials loosened from the sides of the air ducts are pulled into the filter compartment on the truck.

Air Duct Cleaning - Now a Green Industry

Studies by the E.P.A. show that the removal of debris inside the ductwork and cleaning the impacted cooling coils can reduce the running time of HVAC systems by as much as 30%. This directly correlates with savings in energy costs.

How Much Does Air Duct Cleaning Cost?

The cost of air duct cleaning service depends on the size of the home and the type of ducts installed, and additional fees may be incurred when the ductwork isn’t easily accessible. The condition of the ductwork is another factor that affects the cleaning cost; for example, it might cost more if repairs are needed or mold growth is present. Some HVAC companies may also charge per vent for air duct cleaning services, with costs ranging from $200 to about $900.

How Important Is It to Get My HVAC System Cleaned?

Dirt and dust accumulated in the ductwork can affect the efficiency of your HVAC. When the ductwork is dirty, your furnace or air conditioner may no longer heat or cool your home properly. Dirty ductwork also makes your HVAC system work harder, leading to more repairs and costly replacements in the future and reducing the service life of your unit. You can prevent repairs and save money by cleaning the ductwork regularly. Also, inspect the ductwork for leaks or pest infestation — call technicians right away if you suspect rodents inside the ductwork or when leaks are present.
