Clean Ducts May Improve Air Circulation and Reduce Your Heating and Cooling Costs

The well-maintained status of your air ducts — those passages that transport cool and warm air throughout your building — impacts the costs and air circulation quality of your overall HVAC system. You can have the nicest air conditioner around, but if your air ducts are dirty, you’re likely to still be spreading all sorts of dirt and debris throughout the building every time you turn it on, as well as not being able to enjoy the full energy efficiency benefits of the unit. To ensure maximum efficiency, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends you get your air ducts professionally cleaned at least once every 3 to 5 years. Not only does dirt and debris build up, but mold and other allergy-inducing pollutants build up, impacting the efficiency of the system as well as causing negative health impacts on anyone in the property.

The EPA warns that indoor air often is 2 to 5 times as polluted as the air outside. Regular ductwork cleaning by a licensed indoor air quality contractor can be a very important step in improving the air quality in your commercial space.

When to Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends duct cleaning in the following situations:

  • You suspect or know mold is growing in your air ducts. If the air ducts are resonating a must odor, and it’s been smelling that way for a while, it’s time to check to see if you have a mold problem.
  • Clouds of dust are visibly coming out of the supply registers.
  • Black debris built-up around the air vent register.
  • Buzzing or scratching in the ducts (i.e., pests).

Other signs that it is time to get your air ducts inspected and likely cleaned by licensed duct cleaning professions are:

  • Otherwise difficult to explain rising energy costs
  • Following a major renovation
  • A seemingly constant coating of dust throughout your property

How Often Should I Have My Air Ducts Cleaned?

Even with the best filters installed in your commercial HVAC system, they are going to collect debris and require maintenance eventually. Particles will inevitably start escaping the filter and entering your system. Don’t make the common mistake of thinking that, as long as your system has a filter, the ducts never need to be cleaned. Especially if your building is in an area with high pollution — such as from construction or high winds — your ducts are collecting particles right now.

The average duct system requires cleaning every two to three years. If you have not had your building’s air ducts cleaned within the last three years, you are likely to benefit from the cleaning out of build-up debris and dust from your system — making it operate more efficiently and support cleaner indoor air.

The commercial air duct cleaning services J.R. Air Duct Cleaning LLC provides our New Jersey customers are especially important for people with health sensitivities such as allergies. Both customers and employees in the commercial building benefit from responsible HVAC system care procedures, important among them being proper air duct cleaning.


Is Duct Cleaning Worth The Cost?

Our professional duct cleaning services entail the use of specialized vacuums, blowers, and brushes to remove all dust and debris safely and efficiently from your ducts, without making a mess. It also involves a thorough cleaning of all fans, motors, registers, and anywhere else where dust and debris can accumulate in your HVAC system. When your system is covered in dust, your system operates less efficiently. Having your ducts cleaned regularly also helps ensure that indoor air quality remains clean and reduces the spread of pollutants all throughout your property.

We believe that the removal of contaminants in your HVAC system should be considered one of the most important parts in your plan to keep your business clean — otherwise, you are just spreading the dust and other contamination build-up all around your property every time you turn on the heating or air conditioning.
