Air Duct Cleaning in Colorado Springs, CO

But if you have professionals clean the ducts every few years, you’ll see a remarkable improvement in HVAC system performance and a rise in your home’s indoor air quality.
This job is not for amateurs making suspiciously low offers—and you can’t do it yourself with a hose vacuum. You must rely on skilled professionals with the right equipment to do the job. As our motto attests: We’re not happy until you’re happy!

How Often Should You Arrange for Air Duct Cleaning?
The frequency of duct cleaning varies from house to house. On average, a six–person home will circulate around 40 lbs. of dust through the ductwork per year, and that means a layer of dust will build up in that time. Even a thin layer along the duct walls will place some resistance against airflow. For most homes, duct cleaning is recommended every 3 to 5 years. If you have never had duct cleaning done (be honest!) and you’ve been in your home for a good stretch, you’re probably overdue for the job.
There’s an easy way to check if it’s time for duct cleaning. Unscrew one of the vent coverings in your home and reach far inside with a digital camera and snap a picture. If the image shows you something like a clogged car air filter—time for duct cleaning!
The Benefits of Regular Duct Cleaning
"Is duct cleaning really that important?" This is question homeowners often ask. The answer is "yes." If the ductwork in a home is heavily clogged with a build–up of dust, it creates numerous problems for the HVAC system. Here are the benefits you’ll see when the ducts are professionally cleaned:
- Lower Heating and Cooling Bills: High levels of dust and lint will start to choke off the airflow through the ventilation system. This forces the blower motor to work harder and drain more power. When the vents are clean, the HVAC system will use less energy—and you’ll see a difference on your utility bills.
- Healthier A/C and Heater: All that dust and other debris in the ducts can get into the HVAC cabinet and interfere with the air conditioner and heater components. Duct cleaning helps prevent malfunctions and repairs for both the heater and A/C.
- Improved Indoor Air Quality: Each time the blower fan comes on, it will blow out some of debris inside the ducts into the living spaces. This causes a drop in indoor air quality. You’ll enjoy a less dusty environment thanks to regular duct cleaning.
