WHY CLEAN AIR DUCTS? Answer: Because they get dirty!

In addition to normal accumulations of dust and dirt found in all homes with air ducts, there are several other factors that can increase the need for regular HVAC system cleaning:

  •  pets, we love our pets but they don't clean up after themselves
  •  occupants with allergies or asthma
  •  cigarette or cigar smoke
  •  water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system
  •  home renovation or remodeling projects

Certain individuals are particularly vulnerable to indoor air contaminants. Allergy and asthma sufferers, along with young children and the elderly, are more prone to the adverse effects of poor indoor air quality that can be alleviated through air duct cleaning.

TOP BENEFITS OF HVAC CLEANING: NADCA’s rule of thumb for consumers is that “if your air ducts look dirty, they probably are,” and that dirty HVAC systems should be inspected by a reputable, certified HVAC professional. Below are some other reasons homeowners choose to have their air ducts cleaned.

INDOOR AIR QUALITY: Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system takes air in and breathes air out. Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work. While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.

ENERGY SAVINGS: According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use. When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.


WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE CAN HURT YOU: Dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other airborne contaminants are pulled into your duct system every time your furnace or air conditioner runs. These contaminants build up inside the duct work over time and make your duct system an ideal breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew, and other microbes. When the furnace or air conditioner is turned on, these contaminants are spewed out and circulated throughout your home and affect the health and comfort of your family. Family members who suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments as well as children and the elderly are especially vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollutants.

The removal of contaminants from the entire HVAC (Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning) system is recognized by industry experts as well as the NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) as the most effective way to eliminate air duct pollutants. This is referred to as the “source removal” method of duct cleaning. In addition to the obvious health benefits, duct cleaning can help you maintain a cleaner home. It also helps to restore HVAC system capacity and lessen running time resulting in lower heating and cooling bills.


Common Contaminants


Biological contaminants such as pollen can trigger allergic responses in individuals and play a key role in causing asthma episodes for an estimated 15 million Americans.

Dust Mite

Dust mites, though invisible to the naked eye, are present in every home. They thrive on human skin flakes and are commonly found in mattresses, pillows, carpets, upholstered furniture, bed covers, clothes, stuffed toys, and fabric-covered items. The body parts and feces of dust mites can trigger asthma in individuals with allergic reactions. Furthermore, exposure to dust mites can induce asthma in children who have not previously shown any symptoms of the condition.

House Dust

Did you know that dust contains over 5,000 different components? These include fibers, dander, soil, bacteria, molds, smoke residues, pesticides, dust mite allergens, skin flakes, and even insect body parts.


Bacteria is a biological pollutant. Biological pollutants are, or were living organisms. They promote poor indoor air quality and may be a major cause of days lost from work or school, and of doctor and hospital visits. Some can even damage surfaces inside and outside your house. Biological pollutants can travel through the air and are often invisible. (CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION).

Pet Dander

Dander from cats and dogs that live indoors as family pets is a very important cause of allergic symptoms in sensitized people. These people can suffer from asthma, allergic rhinitis, and allergic conjunctivitis. Dander can persist in the environment long after the pet no longer lives in the home.

Skin Flakes

A biological contaminant, and a dust mites favorite food. Humans shed about 1/5 ounce of dander (dead skin) each week. About 80 percent of the material seen floating in a sunbeam is actually skin flakes. (OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY).
