Why Duct Cleaning And NADCA Go Hand-In-Hand
When it comes to a healthier home and reduced energy costs, duct cleaning and NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) go hand in hand to help homeowners get the results they want. If your ducts are in need of cleaning, you want to hire a technician who is knowledgeable and well-trained to work on your expensive HVAC equipment. NADCA ensures that the technician working on your ductwork is someone you can trust to get the job done right.
Most homeowners have their ducts cleaned to obtain:
- Healthier air – Did you know that a typical house produces up to 40 pounds of dust a year just from ordinary living? Much of that dust gets sucked up into the HVAC system and circulated through the house several times a day, with some of it getting left behind in the ducts. In addition, germs, bacteria and other microorganisms can take up residence in your ducts. Getting rid of the accumulated debris in your ductwork can be one step in improving the overall air quality in your home.
- Energy savings – Although your HVAC system’s filter does protect your equipment to some extent, the dust and other debris in your ductwork can slow the flow of air and force your system to work harder. This in turn uses more energy, which you have to pay for. Having clean, well-sealed and insulated ducts can help reduce the amount of wasted energy from your HVAC system.
NADCA is a non-profit organization made up of members of the HVAC profession. Their purpose is to ensure that customers get high-quality duct cleaning and HVAC maintenance services that meet specific standards. To be a member, an HVAC contractor must have a certified Air Systems Cleaning Specialist on staff and must follow specific guidelines in their cleaning and inspection of your HVAC equipment. When you hire a contractor with NADCA certification, you can rest assured that the job will be done right.
