We spend 80-90% of our time indoors. According to the EPA, levels of hazardous pollutants in indoor air can be up to 60 times greater than outdoor air. Today’s homes are built to be tighter for energy efficiency, but that not only does less air from inside our homes escape to the outside, it also means that less air from outside gets inside. Indoor air quality suffers. The first step in improving the air quality in your home is removing the pollutants that are already there with professional duct cleaning services from Home Comfort Experts.
We serve the HVAC needs of customers from Mishawaka, South Bend, Elkhart, Plymouth, Columbia City, Warsaw, Ft. Wayne, La Porte, and Niles, Michigan.
What’s Hiding in Your Ducts?

Make Your Home Healthier with Air Duct Cleaning
No matter what kind of air cleaning system you install, you will only be circulating all of the pollutants in your duct work unless you have it thoroughly cleaned. If you need more convincing, take a hand mirror and a flashlight, remove a floor vent and peek inside. Another sign to look for is a buildup of dust on your cold air return vents. Almost every home has dirty ducts. That’s why Home Comfort Experts offers HVAC duct cleaning and repair services.
We Offer Duct Cleaning in the Following Cities:
8 Reasons to Have Your Ducts Cleaned
Your home is brand new – you would think the duct work in a brand new home would be clean, right? Wrong. During construction, dirt, sawdust, and moisture typically make their way into your ducts. You definitely want your ducts clean after taking possession.
Someone in your home has asthma or allergies – mold, pollen and pet dander can trigger allergy symptoms, so why would you circulate them throughout your home? We recommend air vent cleaning and maintenance for allergy and asthma relief.
Your ducts haven’t been cleaned in 3-5 years – we recommend cleaning your air ducts every three to five years. If you have anyone who suffers from allergies, we recommend three.
You are replacing your AC and furnace system – if you are getting a new furnace and air conditioner, it’s an ideal time to have your ducts clean. Why invest in brand new, clean equipment and then pollute it with a dirty duct system?
You have pets in your home – pet hair and dander get swept into floor vents and float freely on the air, so if you have pets, you have pet hair and dander in your duct work.
You want to save on energy bills – when Home Comfort Experts cleans your ducts, we also clean your heating and cooling coils on your furnace and air conditioner. Furnace cleaning and AC vent cleaning can improve your heating and cooling capacity by up to 25%.
You’ve ever had moisture problems in your home – just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean that mold is not lurking in your duct work. Allergy sufferers can be especially sensitive to mold.
Vent cleaning will reduce dust – less dust being blown around means your home will stay cleaner longer after you dust it.
