An Overview of HEPA Filters And Air Compressors

January 19, 2022

An air duct is a passage through which the HVAC system delivers hot or cold air to your home and office. The most commonly used materials for constructing ducts and vents are galvanized steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and PVC. 

The duct needs to be built using robust, quality material. Even the slightest damage to ductwork can lead to air leaks which can put heavy stress on your HVAC system resulting in higher bills and unclean air.

Similarly, unclean ducts are also one of the major causes of increased stress on HVAC systems and contaminated air supply. In addition, there are numerous short-term and long-term health effects of breathing polluted air. Professional duct cleaning professionals use quality air duct cleaning tools for the best results.


HEPA filters and air compressors are two essential air duct cleaning tools used by professional duct cleaners.


HEPA filters are one of the most used duct cleaning tools, where HEPA stands for high-efficient particulate absorbing. As the name suggests, these filters can absorb pollutants that can cause respiratory issues. 

The efficiency rate of 99.7 % that these filters offer is among the best. HEPA filters absorb everything from dust and pollen to pollutants and bacteria of up to 0.3 microns. 

An air compressor is another effective weapon in a technician's arsenal against unclean air ducts. Compressed air is essential for air washing ducts and vents to dislodge stubborn debris. This is done with the help of a hose and nozzle. Whip heads and skipper balls can be attached to the end of the hose releasing compressed air for better cleaning.
