At Pleasant Air, we use the Rotobrush duct cleaning system. We have found it to be a very reliable and effective way to clean your ductwork.
Clean air ducts are the foundation for good indoor air quality. Over several years, air ducts can also become contaminated with mold, fungi, and bacteria, as well as dust. Routine HVAC maintenance doesn’t remove them. Proper removal with equipment like Rotobrush’s air duct cleaning machines and systems is one way to improve indoor air quality.
The Rotobrush duct cleaning system is designed to give you the cleanest air ducts possible. It works by inserting the brush, which rotates at 450 rpm, inside the air duct. While the brush spins, it is loosening any debris stuck inside. As the brush is scrubbing the inside walls, the vacuum is sucking up the loosened debris, leaving you with clean air ducts. The rotating cable is not exposed, making it safe for all types of duct applications, including flex.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.
At Pleasant Air we are not about treating symptoms only to have your concern keep happening again and again. An important diagnostic tool that we use is a video camera to visually see inside your ductwork.
We have found that in some situations, ductwork with excessive leakage to be a major contributor to dirty ductwork. With most systems being in an unconditioned space such as a crawl space or attic, the leaks in your ductwork can be a source for contaminated outdoor air to enter your home.
