Air Duct Cleaning Services
Air duct cleaning is the process of eliminating dust, mold and other contaminants from your heating and air conditioning system duct work. According to the EPA, “Air duct cleaning generally refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.”
Indoor air pollution has been identified as a top environmental health risk in the US and air duct cleaning has shown to greatly reduce indoor air contaminants, making your home a healthier place to live. Air duct cleaning can also greatly improve your home HVAC system’s efficiency. When your air ducts are clean and air is flowing freely, your HVAC system does not have to work as hard and less power is used, lowering your monthly energy bills!
Pro Tech uses a “source removal” method for cleaning ducts. Our equipment connects directly to your duct system and a powerful vacuum creates a “reverse airflow” through the ducting. A separate cleaning tool that cleans the duct lining is then pushed through the ducting. Contaminants are picked-up into the air stream and removed from the ducts.
Some duct cleaners fog in a “sealing agent” into the duct system. The sealing agent uses adhesives to seal the dust and contaminants to the duct wall. Pro Tech does not use this type of process.
Blower Fan & Coil Cleaning
The blower fan and evaporation coil are cleaned in place. Even a thin layer of dust here can reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system. Also, the continual presence of moisture during the cooling season can lead to mold growth on the evaporation coils.
The presence of mold inside an HVAC system can be an allergy trigger for some. Our Air Duct cleaning services include the application of an EPA registered disinfectant to the coils and the ducts.
Optional Anti-Allergy treatment can be applied to the system. This treatment will denature proteins that are commonly found.
Other Air Duct Services
As time passes some portion of the air moving through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. This lowers efficiency, increases energy costs and makes it more difficult to keep the house comfortable. Our Duct Cleaning Technicians will repair and seal your air ducts.
Air Duct Camera/Video Inspection
Using a specialized video camera system, we can inspect and record the interior condition of a duct system.
Air Duct Deodorizer
Our EON gas treatment consists of 2 parts mixed together in a bucket of water that produces a temporary gas that fills the interior space. The bucket is placed at the return air intake for your air conditioning system. The gas is pulled through the entire duct system and fills all the rooms of your home. It last for only a few hours and leaves no residue.
Pro Tech will apply an anti-microbial treatment to your air ducts that is effective against a wide range of mold and bacteria.
