Are You Confused About Air Duct Cleaning?
In almost every service industry there are standards, but in every industry there’s persuasion about less expensive equipment that claims to do the same job. As consumer’s we may not know the differences in equipment, method, and techniques. Immediately, we think it’s all the same and rationalize our decision based on the cost.
We want you to know!
Amber’s Air Duct Cleaning wants you to know our objective in writing this is not to bash another company or their equipment. We feel it’s our job to inform and educate consumers the difference in cost, equipment, and method.
Air Duct Cleaning Machines
A powerful shop vac with a bucket, electric air compressor, a vent cover used to seal the boot of an air line/intake, and a reverse skipper ball. It is IMPOSSIBLE TO CLEAN AN HVAC system efficiently and effectively using the Ram Air.
Rotobrush consist of two small electric motors that create a strong shop vac suction, 2 1/2 inch in diameter vac hose, and a brush attached at the end that goes down air lines/intakes. Once again, it’s IMPOSSIBLE TO CLEAN AN HVAC system efficiently and effectively using the a Rotobrush.
Electric Portable Air Duct Cleaning Machines
These electric portables are the strongest in the world using 5,000 cfm of negative air suction. Although with an electric portable you are applying the “Push-Pull” method, it still needs the strength of 4,000 cfm or more. Most electric portables are unable to produce the power to clean correctly.
Gas Portable Air Duct Cleaning Machines
You can’t go wrong with the power of a gas portable machine! Together with a gas air compressor, gas portables will do an amazing job. Gas portable air duct cleaning machines are not only used on residential jobs, but commercial building’s too.
Finally, “Duct Trucks,” and it really doesn’t get any bigger or stronger than this! Together with a gas air compressor the job should get done right the first time. There’s no arguing that a duct truck has more cfm of negative air suction than all others, but it comes with a price.
Conclusion on Air Duct Machines
This is in order from worst to best of machines. The more power, the bigger the price. Powerful equipment isn’t cheap to buy, use, or hire a company with it. It’s that old saying, “Good work isn’t cheap and cheap work isn’t good.”
Air duct cleaning methods and process go together like peanut butter & jelly, but they’re different. According to many reliable sources the “Push-Pull” method is the most efficient and effective.
Ultimately, the person(s) (Technician) who is performing the cleaning determines the process. The bottomline is, you can have the right equipment, maybe the best equipment and still not clean as thorough as a company that has the right equipment, but not the best.
