Dirty Ducts Cleaning

Clean & Healthy Air, Breath after Breath

Improve Airflow When Upgrading Filters

With a strong focus on improving indoor quality in public buildings, schools, and the office place, filter upgrades have been a common component for system upgrades.  While installing MERV 13+ filters do catch more and smaller particulates, the denser filters also reduce airflow.  This airflow reduction will make air handlers and furnaces run harder, longer, and at the end of the day cost more to operate. 

When combining air duct cleaning along with filter upgrades, you can help increase airflow to offset this drop and in most cases overcome the loss of upgraded filter.  When upgrading your filters, strongly consider cleaning the ductwork in parallel to remove the internal restrictions that could lead to a NET airflow loss in your system.
