It’s not only dust that we need to worry about but numerous pollutants and contaminants such as bacteria, mould, fungus and debris can accumulate in the ventilation system. Having the air ducts cleaned allows you to have a complete inspection of the system, to proceed to the cleaning of the ventilation system and to put in place an intervention plan for any preoccupying situations.

The cost of efficiently heating or cooling your home is an important part of one’s budget. In our everyday lives, we attach more and more importance to the saving of energy. We furnish our homes with Energy Star approved appliances, we maximize insulation, we draft proof windows & doors, install programmable thermostats etc. In this search for the saving of energy, an important element if often (involuntarily) neglected: the impact of dust and debris present in the HVAC system.
The first component of the heating and cooling system to take into consideration is the air filter. Its primary function is to protect the interior coil of the central air conditioner or heat pump from dust and debris. An air filter that is not changed regularly will become smothered and create enormous air restriction in your ventilation system. Important air restriction = loss of efficiency in the heating and cooling of your home. Result? Your system will have to work longer periods of time to obtain the desired temperature, consequently leading to an additional consumption of energy.
The dust and debris cannot be completely captured by the air filter. A part of these contaminants are therefore accumulated on the interior coil. In the long run, this accumulation affects the energetic efficiency of the coil. As the accumulation advances, the more the efficiency of the transfer of cold or heat through the fins of the coil is reduced. Result? The system must once again work longer periods of time to obtain the desired temperature, consequently leading to an additional consumption of energy.
Where does all that is not captured by the air filter and interior coil end up? That’s right, in your air duct. After a while, the ventilation system gets blocked also causing the circulation of air to be restricted. Result? You guessed it: the system will have to work longer periods of time to obtain the desired temperature, consequently leading to an additional consumption of energy. A simple solution… have your air ducts cleaned regularly by a trained professional from Ultra Air.
For a residence, we recommend to have the air ducts cleaned every 3 to 4 years maximum. For people suffering from allergies or having respiratory illnesses, the cleaning of the ducts should be done every 2 years. Likewise for people who have pets or if the home is located in a dusty environment (busy street, construction, factories, fields, etc.).
