Duct Cleaning

 

Lutes Heating recently added the service of duct cleaning for its customers. While clean filters and air purifiers can capture pet hair, dust and particles, those potential allergens can collect in air ducts over time and create health issues, such as bacteria. Buildup in ducts also can have a negative impact on a system's efficiency.

Lutes Heating and Air Conditioning's duct cleaning service will produce immediate air quality results. Call 574-272-0538 to schedule a consultation with one of our professionals.

National Air Duct Cleaners Association experts say the need for cleaning depends on a variety of factors, including pets, smoking, recent renovations, local weather conditions, and overall home cleanliness. A good contractor will offer to do an inspection beforehand to see if a cleaning is necessary.

NADCA’s standards dictate that a cleaning doesn't just sweep the ducts, but addresses every component air passes over, including coils and the central system. The task involves at least a couple of workers, several hours and costly equipment, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

A thorough cleaning can yield long-term energy savings. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers' research shows dirty coils and blowers in commercial buildings and homes can cut efficiency by as much as 40 percent.
