Save Money and Energy Today

Let's face it- everyone is looking for ways to cut existing bills without feeling the pinch. Air Duct Cleaning can be one of the home maintenance projects that not only results in the obvious, cleaner healthier indoor air, but also results in savings on power bills and can extend the life of your HVAC system.

The State of Arizona estimates that up to 33% of heating and cooling costs are directly attributable to duct leakage.

The leakage, usually found in the seams and joints of the ducts, is sealed as part of air duct cleaning performed to NADCA (The National Air Duct Cleaners Association) Standards. Proper sealing will:

  1. Keep your insulation out of the air stream in your home, and in the attic where it belongs.
  2. Reduce the time you spend dusting and vacuuming attic dust and migrating insulation fibers.
  3. Keep cooled and heated directed into your home, rather than your attic, saving money on power bills.
  4. Reduce your allergies caused by dust, allergens and insulation leaking into your home.

The NADCA Standard ACR 2006 also requires acid washing the coils on the HVAC unit, which will reduce the resistance caused by a dirt and debris build-up. This important maintenance procedure:

  1. Extends the life of the A/C unit, one of the most expensive investments in your home.
  2. Restores the original efficiency (SEER) of the unit, saving money on power bills.
  3. Prevents recontamination of clean ducts with the dirt and debris trapped there. has a free checklist for homeowners to maximize your savings by getting a complete duct cleaning. Make sure your duct cleaning company is NADCA Certified to get the job done right! There shouldn't ever be an extra charge to do a complete cleaning (including the coils).

The HVAC system in your home is the "heart and lungs" of your home. Keeping your system clean will result in a much healthier environment for you and your family, while saving money on your energy bills and keeping your insulation in place where it belongs.
