Indoor Air Quality Specialists
With the amount of time, people spend indoors inside air quality should be a priority. Years of pollen, dust, dander, and pet hair move through your system on a daily basis. These harmful pollutants stick to the inside of your ductwork is extremely hard-to-reach places. The air handler and main lines are where most of the debris settles. We clean the air supply lines, air return lines, main trucks, and air handlers.

Air Duct Cleaning
Why should I have my air ducts cleaned?
- Air ducts naturally accumulate sizeable deposits of dust and other contaminants over a period of years.
- Dirt deposits can reduce the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning system and even cause physical discomfort and illness by degrading the quality of air you breathe indoors.
- Dirt deposits in your air ducts actually act as food for organisms such as dust mites.
Contaminates build up inside the return ductwork. Traditional heating and cooling systems recirculate the air in a home via supply air ducts and return air ducts. Many homes have inefficient filters, which trap less than 10 percent of the particulate that is circulated in the system. If not trapped by the systems air filter, the particulate accumulates in the duct work and on the internal components of your furnace or fan coil.
Duct Cleaning Benefits
Cleaning your duct work eliminates these contaminates with the following benefits:
- Safeguard your health by eliminating potential causes of allergies and respiratory problems.
- Eliminate the dirt that acts as food for dust mites, bacteria, mold and other micro organisms.
When To Clean Your Ductwork?
- When you notice an excessive build-up of dust indoors when windows and doors are closed
- Foul odors like mildew or burning smell when the system is running
- Hearing debris move around when a fan is on
- Every 3-5 years especially if pets are involved
- After a remodel or new construction
Air Duct Sealing
In homes with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, about 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.
A duct system that is well-designed and properly sealed can make your home more comfortable, energy efficient, and safer. Contact us for a quote to seal the ducts in your home and improve the performance of your heating and cooling systems.
Aeroseal Duct Sealing is a patented breakthrough technology that tackles leaks from the inside out. Aeroseal software allows the technician to accurately measure the duct leakage in residential homes and commercial buildings. The Aeroseal process puts escaping air under pressure and causes polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other until the leak is closed.
The technology was developed within the Indoor Environment Program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, whose IAQ scientists tested it. The research was funded by US Environmental protection agency, US dept. of Energy, Electric Power Research Institute and California Institute of Energy and Environment.
The University of California was granted initial patents in 1996 and 1999, and Aeroseal holds an exclusive license to the technology.
While energy savings resulting from reducing leakage vary based on climate, utility rates, and your heating and cooling system, the other goals of even temperatures in all rooms, improved indoor air quality, and reduction of odors and fumes will be achieved regardless of those conditions. In commercial building applications, Aeroseal also solves air flow and ventilation issues in addition to energy savings.
The Aeroseal 6-step process takes very little time to bring you big savings and comfort:
- Wall registers are covered in order for air to escape only through the leaks
- Sealant in injected into the ducts for approximately 1 hour
- Small aerosol particles are kept suspended in the airflow by continuous air movement
- As the air stream makes a sharp turn to exit through a leak, the particles collide with and adhere to the leak edges
- Ducts are sealed with only 1-2 oz. of the sealant material remaining in the ducts
- A computer-generated analysis summarizing your home’s or building’s amount of leakage is generated, providing verification of success of the process
Does your home or building experience?
- High Energy Bills?
- Constantly Running System?
Over 90% of existing buildings located throughout North America have air duct systems that contain small holes and cracks that reduce the level of comfort and increase heating and cooling costs.
Leaks are caused by a variety of factors including the age of the dwelling, type of construction, type of ductwork and local building codes.
Repairing and patching leaks in HVAC duct systems saves cooling, heating, and fan energy. In air-based systems, ducts deliver all of the heating and cooling to conditioned spaces. Any duct leakage translates into extra air that must be supplied so sufficient heating or cooling reaches the conditioned space. This not only increases effective heating and cooling loads, it also increases fan energy due to increased flow and/or run time. Sealing duct leaks reduces the amount of heated or cooled air the supply fan must handle to deliver the same amount of air to the conditioned space.

Dryer Vent Cleaning
Quality Air Solutions LLC has specialized tools and the experience to unclog and clean your dryer vent system. Removing the lint stuck in the vent pipe greatly increases the efficiency of your dryer and substantially decreases the risk of dangerous dryer fires. Leaving you safer and saving you money.
According to a US Consumer Product Safety Commission report in 2011 dryer lint was responsible for over 15,500 household fires per year. Totaling over $217,000,000 in related damages. With that risk in mind, we inspect the system before and after to verify the complete removal of lint from the system.
Warning signs of a restricted dryer vent:
- The dryer produces heat but takes longer to dry clothes.
- Clothes are hot but damp at the end of a cycle
- Excessive lint is seen behind the dryer and is noticeable on the exhaust vent.
- It has been more than one year since the vent was inspected or cleaned.
- Above-average dryer usage (large family)
We clean dryer vents from single-family homes all the way to large hotels and apartment complexes with dozens of vents.
