Frequently Asked QuestionsIf you have questions, we have answers.
How do you know that your home has poorly performing ducts?
• you have high summer and winter utility bills;
• you have rooms that are difficult to heat and cool;
• you have stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable;

Will my house be less dusty after you clean the ducts?
Yes, the inside of your ductwork is the equivalent of an extra room in your home that never gets dusted or vacuumed. When the furnace or air conditioner fan turns on, dust from the ductwork gets churned up and blown into the rooms of your home.
