The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years. In addition to normal accumulations of dust and dirt found in all homes, having pets escalates the need for regular HVAC system. There are circumstances other than pets on premises that accelerate the recommended frequency of duct cleaning; including occupants with allergies or asthma, cigarette or cigar smoke, water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system and home renovation or remodeling projects.
Regular air duct cleaning can increase heating and cooling efficiency as well as improve the quality of air in your home or commercial location. Property Recovery 911 provides leading edge air duct cleaning services to remove contaminants from your HVAC air duct system that will help keep your appliances operating at peak performance and more importantly, promote respiratory health.
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems typically exchange the air in a home at a rate of between 5 and 7 times per day. Atmospheric conditions and habitation produces contaminants that are circulated into the HVAC system, build-up in the duct work and get distributed throughout the premises. Air ducts harboring pollutants may exacerbate health issues leading to serious problems for people with respiratory conditions, autoimmune disorders or environmental allergies.
Furthermore, contaminants lodged in air ducts require HVAC systems to work harder to circulate air, which wastes energy and can shorten lifespan. When clean, an HVAC system can maintain the desired temperature using less energy, leading to improved cost-effectiveness and system longevity.
The most effective air duct cleaning process is known as the ‘source removal cleaning method’. Source removal air duct cleaning requires the system be placed under negative pressure using a powerful vacuum fitted with a HEPA filtration system. While the vacuum draws air through the system, pneumatic and mechanical devices are inserted into the ducts to dislodge any debris that might be stuck to interior surfaces. The debris can then travel down the ducts to the vacuum, which ultimately removes contaminants from the air duct system and the home.
Property Recovery 911 offers residential and commercial air duct cleaning in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. We use HEPA filtered negative air vacuum equipment to remove contaminants from duct systems and capture particulates. Contact us at (267) 808-7200 for prompt, professional service.
