Why Majestic AC does not clean air ducts
We often get calls asking for air duct cleaning. Not only do we NOT clean air ducts, we recommend against it. According to the EPA:
“Duct cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems. Neither do studies conclusively demonstrate that particle (e.g., dust) levels in homes increase because of dirty air ducts. This is because much of the dirt in air ducts adheres to duct surfaces and does not necessarily enter the living space.”
There is no evidence that a light amount of household dust in air ducts poses a health risk. Instead of getting ducts cleaned, we offer solutions that fix the problem.
Your home air conditioning system keeps itself clean
Home air conditioning systems has a built-in cleaning system. The main filter plus the filters in the registers removes particles from the air. Studies have shown that little dust gets through these filters. The small amount that does sticks to the ducts. They do not move through your home. If you are having dust problems, there are better solutions than duct cleaning.
HVAC duct manufacturers do not design them to be cleaned
The flexible ducting used in many homes is fairly fragile. Cleaning can easily damage them. This creates more problems. Damaged air ducts will seriously lower your AC system efficiency. It may also allow dangerous pollutants into your home. Once air ducts are damaged, replacement is the only option.
If you are experiencing pollutants in the air, fix the problem
- We can install an air scrubber that connects directly to the HVAC system. The scubber uses patented technology to clean the air. The “transformed” air travels through your ductwork effectively purifying your home.
- A specialty filter by Aprilaire can greatly decrease allergens in the air. Whole-home air purifiers removes harmful particulates from the air circulating around your home. Removing the pollutants helps to protect your HVAC equipment.
If you feel that your ducting needs cleaning, consider getting them replaced. If there is a problem, cleaning will not fix it. Professionally installed air ducts will ensure proper air flow throughout your home. This is very important to ensure your air conditioning efficiency.
