    Why You Should Get Ductwork Cleaned

    The main reason why HVAC systems need to be cleaned is because they accumulate dust! This accumulation can be the cause of a multitude of problems, including an increased need for dusting, poor heating and cooling performance, and musty odors through your home. While normal, repeated cycling of dust in a home can increase the need for air duct cleaning, other factors may push the air duct cleaning timetable forward even more, including:

    • Smokers regularly occupy the home or business
    • Pets shed large amounts of hair or dander
    • Water or smoke damage is present
    • Previous damage to the HVAC system has occurred
    • Home renovations or remodeling created dusty conditions
    • You are moving into a new or previously occupied home
    • Pollen and allergy-producing flora exists around the home
    • You live in a hot and humid climate or a dry climate

    If you find yourself nodding to these points, then it is likely that you will need an HVAC system cleaning. The benefits of air duct cleaning are numerous: dust reduction and improved circulation, increased efficiency of your HVAC system, and reduced allergen levels within the home. Our technicians utilize the Viper Whip Method and other commercial grade equipment to clean your air duct vents. We move contaminants out of the vents in your home, guaranteeing a holistic cleaning that most other duct cleaners cannot provide.

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has listed poor indoor air quality as America’s fourth-largest environmental threat. Some occupants are more sensitive to the contaminants within a residential HVAC system than others, so having a proper air duct cleaning performed to alleviate this issue is important.

    The Proper HVAC Cleaning Process

    There are two key components to HVAC cleaning: breaking contaminants loose, and collection of contaminants.

    Breaking Contaminants Loose

    Properly cleaning HVAC systems requires removing the sources of contamination. Source removal begins with use of one or more agitation devices designed to loosen contaminants from the surfaces within the heating and air-conditioning system. NJ Air Quality utilizes the Whip system through every vent in the home to agitate and remove your dirt and debris.

    Collection of Contaminants

    During the air duct cleaning process, the entire HVAC system is placed under continuous negative pressure (vacuum) to prevent the spread of contaminants. Continuous negative pressure allows very fine particles to be removed from the system as they become airborne, ensuring that these particles are not released into the living space when the system is turned on after cleaning. This negative pressure also serves to extract the loosened contaminants, which are collected and removed from your home.

    Note: Negative pressure alone is not enough to clean your air ducts, so avoid any company that only utilizes pressurized air to clear the vents. A reputable company will use an agitation tool in tandem with pressurized air.

    System Access

    Because each system is unique, the way the duct cleaners will access them will also be different. Where possible, access to duct interiors should be made through existing openings such as supply diffusers, return grills, duct end caps, and existing service openings. However, if the system dictates, we may need to create an access panel ourselves. Creation of these service openings, and their subsequent closure, will be performed and maintained by our expertly trained technicians.

    Post-Cleaning Maintenance

    There are a few things that you can do to maintain the cleanliness and efficiency of your HVAC system:

    • Get good HVAC filters—ask your contractor for a recommendation.
    • Clean/change the HVAC filters as needed (at least every two months)
    • Even with proper air duct cleaning and changing quality filters, the HVAC system will still become dirty over time. Have your heating and cooling system inspected every two years to determine whether your system needs to be cleaned again.
