Don’t let your indoor air quality be compromised by a dirty duct system. Each time your heating and cooling system runs, dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other airborne contaminants are pulled into your duct system. The build-up of these contaminants can cause your duct system to become a breeding ground for bacteria, fungus, mildew and other microbes.
BGE HOME’s duct cleaning service can remove these contaminants from your system and is the most effective way to eliminate air duct pollutants. It also helps restore heating and air conditioning system capacity and reduces running time.
How It Works: Duct Cleaning
Source removal duct cleaning is the cornerstone of any indoor air quality remediation program. Our duct cleaning system utilizes the HEPA-AIRE method, which is the most advanced source-removal system available. It is widely recognized as being the most significant breakthrough in duct cleaning technology in the past 30 years and is used by professionals throughout North America.
The key components of this system are the patented HEPA-AIRE portable power vacuum and the AIR-SWEEP® compressor. This system enables our technicians to reach and thoroughly clean your entire duct system with minimal noise and disruption. The vacuum is connected to your duct work near your furnace. The technician then goes through your home and blows high-pressure air through your vent system starting from the furthest point and working towards the furnace. The final step is to blow air through the main ducts in your basement pushing debris towards the vacuum location.
Benefits of Duct Cleaning
Improving your indoor air quality is the healthiest home improvement you can make, and cleaning ductwork will improve the quality of the air in your home.
If you answer YES to any of these questions, you should consider BGE HOME’s duct cleaning service.
- Does anyone in your home have allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems?
- Does anyone in your family suffer from headaches, nasal congestion or other sinus problems at night or in the morning?
- Is there a smoker in the house?
- Do you have pets?
- Do you notice musty or stale odors when the furnace or air conditioner runs?
- Do you notice dust on your furniture shortly after cleaning?
- Does it seem that there is not enough airflow coming from your vents?
- Is your furnace equipped with only a standard throwaway fiberglass filter?
Having your ducts cleaned can help alleviate these problems when caused by poor indoor air quality. Duct cleaning will rid of the build-up of allergens in your duct system, and prevent these allergens from being circulated throughout your home by your forced air system. Ducts should be cleaned at least every five years or as necessary. Once you have had your ducts professionally cleaned, it’s a good idea to consider an whole house electronic air cleaner to help maintain optimum indoor air quality.
Efficiency & Savings: Duct Cleaning
As dust, dander and other airborne contaminants accumulate within your air duct system, the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning system may be reduced. The contaminants trapped within the duct system will circulate continuously throughout your home, and begin to impede air flow. As air flow is reduced, the ability of your heating and cooling system to operate efficiently is impacted.
A clogged air duct system causes your heating and air conditioning system to work harder and use more energy to heat and cool your home. Air duct cleaning from BGE HOME can help improve the quality of air inside your home, while increasing the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning equipment.
