Air Duct Cleaning

Why do I need this?

You can benefit from cleaner air, especially if you or a family member has severe allergies, asthma or other health conditions related to allergens and dust mites. Allergens can easily hide in your home forced-air system.

What exactly is air duct cleaning?

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency describes it as “the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced-air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans, fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling housing.”

What does Robinson Heating and Cooling do to help me?

Robinson Heating and Cooling utilizes the Rotovision® compact digital video inspection system with six LED headlights, color picture, and waterproof digital camera. We can attach this camera to the Rotobrush® and view the duct cleaning process in action. The patented Rotobrush® system uses remote control steering, built-in vacuum, and various sizes of rotating brushes to snake its way through your duct system, leaving it cleaner than you thought possible. It easily cleans all types of air duct construction (e.g. flex-ducts, round metal ducts, square metal ducts, fiberboard) including right angle turns, reducers, and multiple bends found in most types of duct systems.

The step by step:

  • Step 1: A Robinson Heating and Cooling Rotobrush®-trained technician cleans the register covers to remove dust-collecting substances, including cooking oil film and nicotine film.
  • Step 2: He then deep cleans the source of the air supply including the blower, squirrel cage, coils, condensation pan and return air supply.
  • Step 3: The air ducts are then brush-vacuumed clean with our Rotobrush® system, removing the contaminants that circulate through your air duct system. Lastly, we sanitize your air ducts and vents with an environmentally safe sanitizer.

Some facts about indoor air pollution to think about…

  • Indoor air quality is one of the EPA’s top five environmental risks to public health.
  • Despite this, almost 25% of Americans do not show concern about the air quality in their homes.
  • Common indoor air pollutants include dust mites, pollen, mold, radon, carbon monoxide, excessive carbon dioxide, and other chemical fumes.
  • Pollution inside typically is two to five times worse than the air outdoors. Sometimes it can be 100 times worse.
  • Secondhand smoke from tobacco products are a major indoor air pollutant. It contains about 4,000 chemicals, including 200 known poisons.
  • Secondhand smoke causes over 150,000 respiratory problems in infants and 38,000 deaths annually.
  • 10% of Americans have never changed the filter on their heating and air conditioning unit.
  • 75% of Americans live with someone who suffers from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory illnesses.
  • Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to asthma, headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue.
  • One out of 15 American homes has a dangerously high radon level. Radon naturally emits from the earth and enters the home through cracks in the foundation floor and walls, drains, and other openings. Indoor radon exposure is estimated to be the second leading cause of lung cancer.
  • Only 27% of Americans have carbon monoxide detectors at home. Carbon monoxide is a gas that can stop coordination, worsen heart conditions, and at very high levels, can cause death.
