Third Party Duct Cleaning Verification

Every business owner or facilities management professional can vouch for the importance of duct cleaning for HVAC Systems installed in commercial or industrial complexes.

Now, the only way to access the interior of the ducts is through an existing opening or a new access hole made by an incision. These access holes are then plugged after the cleaning process is complete.

However, some uncertified air duct cleaning companies fail to seal the ducts properly after cleaning.

This results in an average leakage of between 10% and 20% of the total air flow provided by the supply fan in duct systems. The leakage in the unconditioned areas accounts for more than half of the total leakage from ducts.

Effects of Duct Leakage

While duct leakage is extensive in residential buildings, commercial buildings are also not immune from this problem. Duct leakages can:

  • Reduce the air flow significantly, reducing system efficiency.
  • Result in the loss of energy, which can lead to a rise in energy expenses.
  • Provide space for the inlet of dust particles and other contaminants in the air, leading to poor indoor air quality (IAQ). These contaminants easily circulate within the home. This leads to health issues, especially to those who are already prone to asthma and allergies.

Given all these factors, it is crucial to enlist the services of a National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) accredited professional.

CORE has been a member of the NADCA and has an unparalleled record as the leading provider of duct cleaning facilities for large buildings.

Not only does CORE offer duct cleaning facilities, it also ensures third-party verification of the cleaned ducts. The inspection by a third party ensures that any mistake in the duct cleaning and sealing process is caught and rectified before it can cause damage.

Apart from making sure that a third party inspects the work done by its own team of trained professionals, CORE also provides third party verification of ducts cleaned by other professionals or companies.

Why Third Party Duct Cleaning Verification Is Essential

With a third party verifying the effectiveness of the cleaning service, it is easy to avoid costly mistakes, such as duct leakage.

Enlisting the services of a NADCA-certified industry-leading professional, such as CORE is recommended for third-party verification. With the team of highly-experienced HVAC professionals equipped with state-of-the-art technology, CORE is well-positioned to catch any oversight in the duct cleaning process performed by another service provider.

Make sure you keep a regular check on the efficiency of your HVAC system with the help of experienced professionals in the field. This will ensure that the air quality in the building is always of optimal quality and there is no wastage in terms of energy and expenses through an improperly maintained system.

The Importance of Working With a State Licensed Air Conditioning Contractorstate-licensed-air-conditioning-contractor

To deal with the problems arising from slowly deteriorating IAQ, commercial and industrial facilities need to ensure that the AC ducts are cleaned and serviced regularly and that their equipment has been optimized in accordance with ASHRAE standards.

The reality is that with so much at stake, it does not pay to work with unlicensed contractors who often lack the education, hands-on training and cutting edge technologies granted by state licensing.

As a certified member in good standing of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), Core is an industry leading HVAC service provider and offers varied services to improve ventilation and system optimization. In addition, Core offers repair, maintenance and often total system replacements to industrial and commercial facilities.
