Roger M. Herdé BSME, MSIE, MBA
CEO & Founder
In 1985, Roger was working as a Me
chanical and Industrial Engineer with Florida Power and Light. He was asked to develop the Air Duct Leak Repair Program. Working with Berkeley Laboratories, they determined that air duct leaks cause energy bills to be 27% higher. Upon inspecting multiple building with contaminated air ducts, Roger realized the need for air duct cleaning. In 1992, Roger became a State of Florida Licensed Air-Conditioning Contractor #CAC056953 and established DuctMasters to be the Master Solution Provider for Indoor Air Pollution and increase HVAC efficiency. Our proprietary HVAC cleaning, decontamination, and restoration process was later validated by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) standard.
